Hey don't worry about it, it is quite a bizarre business model. Certainly not an obvious one. Another examples are:
o Printers, they (at least the budget ones) are also sold at a loss. But you get severly milked when buying cartridges.
o Phones (in the UK anyway)
o Razors where the actual product gains the manafacturer no money, it is the replacement blades that get the money rolling.
