How Greedy? How many HP Tablets Purchased?

4,794 942 August 21, 2011 at 11:37 PM in Tech & Electronics (2)
As you probably already know, there is a frenzy for the $99 and $149 HP Tablets. The thread in the Hot Deals is breaking records for number of posts and viewers.

Did you get one? How many (so far)? Doesn't matter how many are confirmed, just how many you ordered.

Are they for an Orphanage? laugh out loud

orders placed for personal/gifts - no luck anywhere:

office depot - online with instore pickup - 3 at one store; 2 at another - just excuses at both stores

onSale/Amazon - ordered 5 (fairly late, with cheap shipping), but they got cancelled on Wednesday

I am undecided if I am better off without any, but at this price level I will continue the hunt.

I do not plan to pay more than the clearance $99/149 price.

Quote from kilacam19 :
I ordered a total of 6. Hopefully I can get 2 of them to ship. The rest will be sold for a small profit, 1 will be ship to Afganistan to a fellow Frat brother serving out there.
I can't seem to give rep yet, but mad props on sending one to your bro overseas!

I only ended up with six 3 x 16Gb and 3 x 32Gb. I sold one 32Gb to my sister for cost, one 32Gb is for use around the house, and one 32Gb will get Android. One 16Gb is a gift for my mom, One 16Gb is for my three boys to use and the last 16Gb may also go to the kids or to sell locally at a profit.

VisionTek does not honor their lifetime warranty. Do not buy graphics cards from them.

You guys will love this: I ordered 8 through 5 different vendors over the weekend/Monday. 2 for myself + wife, 2 for parents (planning to make photoframes), and others as buffer. So far 2 cancelled, I may receive 3 total, and 5 TBD. Then I think Monday night as I was trolling the site, some supposed BB employee had that spreadsheet up. Checked the sheet, thought what the heck, and sent my wife to a BB that was noted for 'on first truck delivery'. She walks in at 10am, gets one, then texts me "you shoulda came along, it was one per person." Now she thinks it's all easy to get one Smilie.

As for the other eight, I'm not holding my breath. But I am enjoying the one I have in hand (and so are the kids...)

The person advances to the next level of needs only after the lower level need is at least minimally satisfied.

Man these things are all over Ebay and CL. Some guys wanted to profit a few bucks off of it. 5% of accounting profit doesn't look attractive.

Ordered 1 early AM from BB online 8/21 email from BB later that day to contact customer care . Told " no stock, can't fill order" in over 100 miles encouraged to cancel order which I did.

Found Slickdeals!

1 32 GB from Tiger Direct by phone ( ordered on Monday 8/22 recieved it Saturday 8/27)

Then something funny happened! During the touchpad debacle Monday 8/22 Furiously going from site to site ( along with a million others) trying to get a TP which was NOT working 4 me ( I was at my mothers and she has slowwww sattelite internet ) at some point I must have tried to add a 16 GB touchpad to my cart at BB. On Wed 8/23 I was on the BB website and saw that TP in my cart. I thought " what the heck I am gonna act like I am buying it " even though the site stated " sold out online" I figured it would drop out at some point during the transaction .....iT DIDN'T!! .......so I recieved the 16GB today Smilie:Big GrinSmilie

I already owned 1 and have a total of 3 that the purchases were successful on so far. I still need 2 more. All are for family members or friends who wanted one but don't have the time or know how to hunt around for them.

if anyone has an extra one that they're willing to sell me at a reasonable price please pm me. I'm in bed and it would be most helpful. Don't mind paying a little bit more but can't afford much more then the marked down price. This would be a blessing as my iPad 2 was taken by my son for school (he left for an out of town college). Said he would pay me, but we know how our kids are. As long as he keeps up his grades I'll be happy. It was recommended on his school list so I let him take it.
thank you.

If someone would send me three or four for cost that would be great. One will go to each of us while we sit at the hospital because my daughter is getting a cast on her leg.

P.S. Her leg isn't broken yet, once I have shipping confirmation I will break it.
