I think it's been discontinued for a while- but it's weird that there's no Q10 prime hit (and that it's so expensive compared to the K-01!)

Not really so weird if you have watched the Groupon sales which list the number of each variation that has sold. The Q has been on $349 and now $299 deep discount sales for over a month. By a huge margin the Black has outsold the White and oddly the Prime has sold incredibly well in those sales. I expected the Black + 01 to go first.
