|Corrosive||Just in case anyone is wondering, returning to a Brick and Mortar staples was no problem. I just had to let mine go, low battery life and annoying fan really did me in. The straw that broke the camels back was when I had not used the computer all day (left it in my laptop bag the entire day after charging it all night) and I went to watch some netflix in bed. It fired up, then powered down and would not turn back on. At first I thought it was a hardware problem, but turned out that it just needed power. Maybe something was wrong with mine, but eh... bye bye twist.|

|Corrosive||I am kinda thinking the same thing... battery life is short and the fan is super loud. I like the computer overall though and I am really debating keeping mine. So how does a return work if I ordered mine online? I think I read that the window is 14 days from purchase... I have a 256 SSD that I am hoping comes in soon so I can install that and see if that helps with some of the noise (I am a law student so I am in the library where people give you bad looks if you are loud at all).|

|Corrosive||Ok, well I just decided to contact staples through their chat and they confirmed that it will be at my door by tomorrow.|

|Corrosive||Did anyone who else ordered this have the confirmation that it would come on the 27th? I ordered it with it saying that the estimated arrival date is tomorrow but every time I go to their site, it says that it has not shipped. I was wondering if anyone had insight to how staples updates their information page, I have never ordered from them before.|

|tinker21||My earlier reservation ended up getting canceled due to the fact they could not find the item in the store. I called all the stores within a 30 mile radius and got extremely lucky! Someone ended up returning one to the original store I went to on black Friday. They had opened it and realized they couldn't work a certain software on it. I was able to get an extra 5% off because it was an open box item. They basically took care of taxes. I've been playing around with it for the past day and it's awesome!|

For those who missed on this, Lenovo.com has 10% off the Thinkpad Twist. Add 10% cashback bonus from Discover, and you are pretty close to this price.
Thinkpad Twist w/ i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200RPM plus 24GB Micro SSD is regularly $899 - 10% (Code BLACKFRIDAY) = 809.10 + Tax
ShopDiscover is giving 10%CB at Lenovo.com, making it $728.19 + tax. Plus, you can choose your processor and HD/SSD from a few configurations and keep the 10% + 10% discount.

|tinker21||I was able to reserve the last one in stock online at the 2nd closest b&m to my home. I will know in the morning if they actually have one in stock or not. *fingers crossed*|

Woohoo! I called a local Staples that was listed as 'low stock' this evening and the salesperson offered to call and find one locally. I wait for five minutes, and it was music... 'My manager found one in the back.' Score! Such a nice laptop for the money.
A few things I noticed immediately, no fingerprint reader, no accessible battery or RAM.
Those surprised me. Can you upgrade from 4 to 8GB of RAM?

|Guido13||Any other touch enabled laptops that would be comparable in price and performance? Wonder if I'll be able to get this one again since it went out quick.|

Staples sucks!!! I was the second in line but wasn't able to get one because there was only one in stock!!! Outrageous!!!
Shame on you, staples.

Glad I just pulled the trigger without over thinking this. I would have been annoyed that it sold out so fast. Got in though. As for reselling on eBay (someone asked earlier). I really don't think you would make any money after all the BS fees. Totally not worth it in my opinion. But at $750 (with tax) it seems like a warm enough deal. I hope I like it.
BTW, Staples CSR over chat confirmed return policy is extended until 1/12/2013 for this with no restocking or open box fee.

|tinker21||The Leesburg, Va Staples did not keep this item in stock. I forgot to check the site before I went to bed otherwise I would have surely gotten one online! Currently OOS online|
