How Greedy? How many HP Tablets Purchased?

4,396 851 August 21, 2011 at 10:37 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

Bought two 16 gigs. Was hoping to sell one to pay for the other, but by the time I get one, the market will probably be way too over-saturated.

This thread is a good place to take a breath out of the HP Touchpad frenzy. Here's my order list:

2 x 32G from HPA: being processed.

8 X 16G from CostCentral: a total mistake, I opened 4 tabs and each added two to my cart. It showed two as I completed order on one tab, and BOOM...receipt shows 8 units. However, I don't see anything in order history now on CostCentral. I'm pretty sure it's canceled even though I have only confirmation email and no cancellation email.

2 X 16G from OnSale@Amazon: ordered pretty late. Almost sure it'll be canceled though I see "shipping soon" for now.

4 x 16G from BN: Current status "Unable to process, blah blah". Guess that's also canceled as I placed it very late. I was just trying to make good use of the gift card a friend sent me.

So now, I'm just hoping for the two from HPA and refund to all my credit cards. LMAO
How do you know the onsale ones will be canceled?

Rumor is that order placed after a certain time will all be canceled. I also noticed on their own website that there's a "limit 1 per customer". I mean there's no magic: OnSite is a small company and it's impossible for it to fulfill all the orders though amazon, thousands of them I guess.

I ordered 5 - one from OD, two from BN, two from OnSale.com via Amazon.

The OD order is listed as shipping and the BN order is cancelled, and the OnSale.com one is likely to get cancelled, so I'll probably only end up actually receiving one.

Obviously resale prices will spike once Honeycomb and ICS is ported over. Then again, the resale value of these could be farked if Amazon produces a cheap tablet soon.

I just wanted one, orr two.


Four at the most. All for Christmas gifts to the kids (and me).
You're a couple days too late for it to be on time for my birthday but that's ok, I'll accept it anyway.


I didn't get any or try to. They look cool though.

I hope that you guys who bought loads of them to resell on eBay know that nobody is going to buy them at a high price tag. So, you're not likely to make much, if any profit at all off of them. There are still too many out there that haven't been discounted yet. Also, why would people bid high prices on items that were originally bought for $100. So, if you decide to sell it on eBay, only expect to get the price you put into it plus $5-$10 shipping. Nobody in their right mind would pay more for these. Don't think about skimming a little profit on shipping. Any normal person with a brain would know that it wouldn't take anymore than $10 to ship, so forget about asking $20 on the shipping price.

Important Reasons Why Profiteering Fails on the HP TouchPad
1. They're being discontinued and will quickly lose value in time as newer technology comes out.
2. There will be so many who are first to put theirs on eBay that the auction market will be overly saturated.
3. There are many other choices with more potential that people are willing to wait and save up their money for instead of buying this device.
