I think Duke's price seems to make more sense. For PE100, I heard that the reagent cost is $2,915. If we assume the $700,000 HiSeq 2500 can last 5 years and each run takes one day, then the equipment cost for each run is only $383. If they sell it for $4,500, this left them $1,202 for other cost and profit. Seems quite reasonable to me. Am I missing something?
