TouchPad firesale is back, sort of

Deal of the Day: $150 with purchase of HP PC


HP’s TouchPad is back, much to the delight of bargain hunters, but this time around it costs $149.99 and there is a catch. You can’t get one unless you buy some HP gear along with it.

BestBuy will throw one in if you choose to buy an HP laptop, PC or all-in-one computer, so it’s only a bargain if you actually need a new computer.

It is still a pretty good deal, as you can buy a $300 netbook or similar toy on the side and the total cost will still stay pretty low, at least compared to Apple’s iPad, or high-end Android tablets for that matter.

So, if your holiday shopping list includes a netbook, notebook or PC for your kids, or that significant other, this might be the deal for you.

Gawd-daymnit!!! I *WOULD* buy a HP TM2 tablet PC, if they hadn't discontinued the line ... then again, if I got a TM2, maybe I wouldn't need a Touchpad ... but I could always give it to the dog!

Not sure...

Intel is spending hundreds of millions on ultrabooks, and they are not doing well. Convertible tablet PCs are a niche market, I doubt chipmakers or vendors will choose to invest in them.

I would be in the market for a cheap Fusion powered tablet though, if anyone comes up with one...
