I guess everyone who hurried to Target could have just waited a few days and had this shipped to their door hassle-free.
Not when I'm already in Target snagging video games with the $15 preorder special Big Grin

OK, I guess I should have said that almost everyone who hurried to Target could have just waited a few days and had this shipped to their door hassle-free. Wink

This gadget is 2 years old tech. It should be dirt cheap. People say with the current application versions, it crashes and burn, why pay so much to watch utubes and web surfing. There are other Google & Samsung tablets even dell venue 8s with the same utubes apps and build quality.
Is it fanaticism or "other jones have it" mentality?

Ordered the open-box special online for $185, used $75 certificate I only discovered I had yesterday and tweeted Best Buy to see if they could apply a movers' guide coupon that I misplaced. A few e-mails later I got a $19 credit. Not bad for under $100.

It "should" be what the public is willing to pay for it, irrespective of what you may think. Nobody is forcing you to buy it, so quit threadcrapping.

1 or 2 year e-gadgets are always dead cheap. If not, it is "No logical reasoning" involved, but same as a "cult" behavior.

Could you point me to a decent 8" tablet with better specs that is .29 thick or less for $199 or less?

I'm going for portability so I need thin and light. If such an Android beast exists I would seriously consider returning this.

TIA,

You can use 'Find my iPhone' on an iPad, and a cell-equipped iPad is perfect because it doesn't need to be hooked up to WiFi to lock/erase it. Definitely a huge advantage for me. I'm really careful with my phone and iPad but you never know.

My open box Space Gray iPad Mini will be arriving today. Thinking about replacing a 2012 Nexus 7 that my mother uses. The 4:3 screen feels much more spacious and the speakers are louder.

Let me know what kind of shape your open box is in. I also ordered open box online to have it shipped.

I got mine this afternoon. MINT condition and Apple Care was already reset to expire 6/7/2015. Super pleased. And for some reason they reversed the original charge and charged again without tax. Weird. Not complaining! I hope yours is in good shape too.

Sad that Staples stores that show them as "in stock" are claiming they don't have them. A friend of mine did a search on Staples.com, which shows sold out online. He then searched local stores in the area, some showed as out of stock, some showed as low stock, and a few others showed as in-stock. He went to one that said "in-stock" and was told they were sold out for days. If that was the case the site would show sold out online. He was ok with it but told me what happened and I suspect, and others do as well that I have talked to about this, that Staples is basically telling people they are out of stock because they simply don't want to price match.
