This sort of thing happens all the time, but don't feel too bad:
I once imported a $2500 subnotebook from Japan. Because it was an import and slightly customized, no returns are possible except under warranty. Less than two weeks later, they did a price cut while announcing a new model. I was bummed... but I did keep and use that subnotebook for over 5 years, so the money was well spent in the end.
Hopefully you got a decent discount on yours, at least. And it's not a bad machine either way.
