HP’s firesale on the Touchpad (32gb and 16gb) exploded this weekend, causing customers to scramble far and wide, vying for a device of their own. The HP Touchpads were marked down to 75% off the retail price, coming in at $99 for the 16gb Touchpad and $149 for the 32gb Touchpad. After countless phone calls and numerous fruitless trips out to the stores – Staples, Walmart, Best Buy – I finally decided to give up. But then my pal gave me links so I could still get my hands on a discounted HP Touchpad this weekend!
For anyone still interested in getting the HP Touchpad at a discounted price, either for themselves or as a gift for someone, there are still a few options for last-minute clearance devices. I highly recommend watching slickdeals.net for the latest and greatest. I would also recommend watching prices on Amazon and checking back to HP’s site regularly.
Today Amazon decided to drop the prices to match the manufacturer’s offerings. I managed to play my order, but it seems the prices have since been increased. Here are the links just in case the pricing comes back to the low, low rates I had:
Buying online from a favorite retailer like Amazon proved much more relaxing for me than running out to the stores where it felt as if employees (who had probably already cashed in on the deal) were mocking the line of customers pouring into the stores for this sick deal. Here’s the scoop – if you like gadgets, surfing the Web, checking email, and viewing photos and videos, it really doesn’t get much better than $99 and $149! If you still want to buy a Touchpad, you might be in luck if you can find a current deal. Good luck to anyone looking to buy one of these bad boys – I wouldn’t delay too long if you are, since I almost didn’t get one.
