Where Are YOU Buying Your Apple Products? Even on the Apple site, the price ranges from $499 to $699.
The major reason the Touchpad sold out is because HP dropped to price point to under $100. This is low enough for those who want to try a pad, but didn't want to spend $200 or more for something that may not work for them.
Additionally, some are being bought by speculators who are selling them on E-Bay for well over $200. I just now saw one on E-Bay priced for quicksale at $510!
This may all become moot since, according to Marketplace Tech Report this morning, HP is going to do another production run of the Touchpad.
Price is the driving factor here, not quality or features, including OS.
