Alright I gotta get some sleep! Need to wake up tomorrow and call HP at 8AM then call the B&M stores just to be safe. Maybe I'll be able to find a newly replenished stockpile? :razz:

Good night!

I've spent over $4000, nearly $5000 on these things at full price. Obviously, not hoping for much here. I haven't received any call from the CC company or HP.

so today i spoke with a FS rep.. he told me that before the HP fire sale, all the FS employees were getting the touchpads for $120 for the 16gb unit, that's why most of the FS and BB stocks are low.. all the employees have hoarded them all leaving only like 10 units per store left for the actual customers.. Not sure if for reall...

Yeah, somebody mentioned that earlier in the thread. I had no hope in FS/BB/St00ples right from the beginning. Only hope is hp.ca. Transgender has been used and abused.

It's true, my FS insider said this happened at the Toronto downtown location. Several employees got fired. Justice.

Pretty much, but moar like at $149.99. Unless that stock is phantom stock, which it most likely isn't because HP hasn't tried to remove it from their site. PLZ THANK! :D



Who said I had any sanity to begin with?

-Transinsane

It is VERY possibly phantom stock. The reason they couldn't try to remove it is also the reason why the price is still the full price. The web site workers don't work on the weekend.

Wait... what if I didn't order the touchpad at normal price today... Can I order it tomorrow morning at $99.99 or $149.99?

Btw, I ordered from BB, but still not confirmation mail. Thanks.

I picked up a 32gig at bureau en gros yesterday for 135.00 after my sons discount. Its actually a great device with more than enough apps for everyday productivity, and angry birds as a bonus!!! I would never buy one at the full price but this is the tech bargain of the year. They started selling them at 9am and were sold out at 9.01 . People were lining up.

Chances are there would be no stock, even today.

In the same situation as you, I think I'm going to order at hp if they drop the price tomorrow then cancel my staples order. lol

Did you read the post? Two orders (at full price) are from NCIX and CanadaComputers. Another one is from Bestbuy. They're obviously not gonna have 'em in stock or ship them out. One order is from hp.ca. I just don't like putting all my eggs in one basket.

Yes you are correct. However 16gb models have been OOS for the last few days.

-Transcend

So many PMs lol now I've lost track of the thread.

ohhh yea

ok, well im about to click the buy button on the 32gb but im still... feeling..... iffy.... something about buying something where you simply hope they'll change the price is freaking me out :S
