Third party sellers are starting to drop the prices on Amazon, only a matter of time before Amazon matches it.

Sweet. $91 after tax from HP Academy store. WebOS is pretty good, it's a shame HP took over Palm and killed it.


It's only showing 5% off for me...Looks like I'm heading to Best Buy in the morning!

I'm looking around...I prolly missed it. I understand there stopping working on these things but you guys think these things will be updated somehow as time goes on? I basically want it for internet, email, youtube basic stuff and some apps.

Word and powerpoint - fine, if you need those things. As far as firefox, safari, itunes, etc., the iPad is far and away a better internet / media device than any cheap standard computer. It's not even comparable. + it's useful for tons of other crap that cheap netbooks would be terribly suited for.

As for the touchpad, I don't know. It's an unpolished clone without a decent selection of software.

Man this thread is really blowing up. I hope I can get one of these, my girl needs something to read PDFs on since the ereader she stole from me is bad at that and I don't want her to steal my iPad too.


Slick dealers site has blown up! Check it, probably over two hours ago I saw it and there were only about 3 pages. I went up to best buy and bought the 32gb at $499 to do price difference tomorrow. Word is out ,

I can't seem to sign up for HP academy because I already used my uni email for a normal account. Anyone know a way to change the account?

If not I guess I'll wait it out. Don't need to spend the cash anyway


When you're logged into the store, at the bottom of the page under "Order Info" there should be a "My Account" option.

I'm just curious what the "tons of other crap" would be? I've got nothing against the iPad but am interested in your response.

Unfortunately, I don't think TRU takes returns on Electronics, other than defectives of course.

I'm tempted to buy one of these for $89.24 too but I'm really enjoying the HP Mini netbook I picked up from TRU. Must convince myself...to not...buy this... :-k :lol:


I never opened it. Although I can't find my receipt AND the factory seal was broken when I bought it. Ahhh whatever, if worse comes to worse, I'll give it to my nephew.

The CAG in me can't resist a $90 tablet though.

Ah thank you. I feel kinda stupid now lol. Showing up for me now

Also,
Coupon codes:
Save15HP $15 off $75
Save30HP $30 off $150

May have already been posted. 32 GB + $5 paper to get over $150 is $125.93 before tax. Not bad.

I just ordered one from HP with next day shipping. I have a vacation in a few days and this would be perfect. Hopefully it hits Best Buy's website tonight so I can do in store pickup and cancel my order from HP.

Not to rain on the parade here but is this a wise buying choice? With Ice Cream Sandwich around the corner and tablets incoming this holiday season that are actually supported and have thriving communities wouldn't it be better to spend a little more to get alot more in this case? Anyway a kindle is still the a better e-reader than this and can be gotten for a reasonable price. Hey I own a HD DVD player so I'm not one to talk and the low price is intriguing but I'm saving my coins for something a little nicer.

I'd like it to hit online tonight as well, but it says sold out online so would it even matter at this point? I think my store will have some in the morning, so I'm gonna make sure I show up for when it opens

It looks to be a gamble right now. But it could be that HP is looking for licensing for it which would mean it would work out

Eh, maybe, maybe not. I'll only be using this to browse the internet around the house, I don't really care about apps. I usually just use my phone so a tablet will be a nice replacement.

Has anyone been able to get the low price on HP's Canadian sites? Futureshop and Bestbuy are already sold out.

It's saying that shipping isn't available, and the it states the same thing for in store pick up. So yeah make sure you get there early as hell!

Just warning for the flippers [i was thinking about it]

this is not some exclusive sales, EVERYONE will be selling it at these prices. Ebay prices have already tanked because there are soooo many listings being posted.

I think it is a good idea to buy for your own use, I just dont see too much profit in the flipping espicially after few days. Just a friendly reminder.
