English term or phrase: A couple looking for the typical five-ninety-nine computer system
People, please, help with this "five-ninety-nine computer system" thing. Is it some sort of a computer system or just pricing. I would love to have a native speaker to explain this. Thank you.

Usually it\'s $599.95 or $599.99.
But not $600 - as Kirill has mentioned

  -> Есть много, друг Горацио, такого, что и не снилось нашим мудрецам...:-))

agree  Victor Potapov: или (flogging the nearly-dead horse) : "приходят тут, ищут компьютер подешевше" или даже "за три копейки". Вот так вот. Хотя для PC (в противовес Маку) 599 - хорошая цена, если без монитора - то много чего поместится...

agree  xxxsergey: я читал, что цифра 9 - деньги приносит, так поэтому цены кругом такие
