    With HP putting a hold on their Touchpad tablet, things got crazy. See the price dropped at 99$ for a 16G model...

    Would you buy one?

    Probably not - warranty & support issues would bother me?

    Also, there is an article in today's (i.e. Saturday) NY Times business section about HP possibly 'selling off' their desktop computer line (i.e. similar to IBM not too long ago) - are they going to concentrate on the laptop & tablet (or other) industry? Will be interesting? :)

    What apps are available? What's the point? I'd feel pretty annoyed, though, if I'd just paid $400 for one. Is there a rebate program?

    There are not many people who will be annoyed because they over paid.... Less than one days worth of iPad sales....

    Though I agree I would be miffed.

    As a browser device to surf the net, I would consider it. Of course, you have to forget about upgrades, apps and so on... But having a device that can surf the web, play movies and music, check your emails... 99$ is kind of a great bargain...

    Already have one ;). But you cannot surf the web with the Apple TV, or bring it with you on the road...
