We called out local Best Buy store to see if there were any HP TouchPads in stock. We were told that we could only get an HP TouchPad if we bought a qualified HP or Compaq computer or notebook.
There were Twitter reports that customers were not waiting in line this morning for tickets to get the HP TouchPad deal with a computer purchase.
For brief time TigerDirect was selling the 32GB TouchPad Bundle with stand, case, Bluetooth speaker and 16GB for $199 which sold-out within an hour."Quantities limited. Limit one per order. If you return the computer that qualifies you to purchase the HP TouchPad at this price and you do not return the Touchpad at the same time, your return will void the $450 combined purchase savings and you will owe more money than you originally paid."
If you need a computer anyway the HP TouchPad makes a great holiday gift, noted one holiday gift guide.
The HP TouchPad sold-out and flew off the shelves when it was reduced to $99 for 16 GB and $149 for 32 GB. A second run was sold-out to employees who spent the whole day ordering HP TouchPads with some complaining about the loss of work time.
