So I just went to Best Buy online and ordered a new HP laptop and also got the HP TouchPad (32gb) for $150. I thought it was a good deal. I mean, I needed the laptop and the tablet was just a bonus. It seems that this is exclusive to Best Buy and HP (at least that's what they said in the press release), but when I was selecting my HP laptop, Compaq was also considered a qualifying laptop to get the lower priced TouchPad.
Yes, the tablet might be extinct, but it works, it's WIFI, and any minute Android will be ported over to it. What more do you want?
I think it looks pretty cool. I don't really care for WebOS, but that's minor.
