I found a 189 with rebait ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This is US Dollars but I looked up the conversion and our dollars are almost the same or 1 to .99.. I would really recommend you wait the 3 weeks or so till the 600 series is out as the 650 will be the same as the 560 but much cheaper and also the 500 series prices should go down a bit... Your call.
