Why is HP selling exactly the same scanner under two different models - 3300C & 4100C:

3300C run under Win98 only;
4100C run under Win95 & Win98 but available in Australia only;

Some marketing ploy !

The difference would be cost of them to manufacturer versus the price difference in the u.s. versus austrailia exmaple a cd in the us generally costs $15.00 - 17.00 dollars a cd in australia costs 35.00 - 40.00 dollars because of there economy tax and so foth so to keep the cost of the scanner down the manufacturer almost the same model with the exception of the voltage regulation in the unit and sell it under another model number so that it appears to be different when in reality it is the same so yes it is a marketing ploy... a lot of companies do this with products sold here then in canada however if a unit is bought in australia the voltage difference would be a problem here also the warranty if unit was bought in australia would be void here

It is not cost as I am writing from Singapore where only 3300C (Win98 only)is available. The voltage in Singapore 220v. , same as Australia where 4100C (both Win98 & Win95) is available.

Still cannot figure out the reason !!!
