when i called them last night shortly after midnight, they acted like they were all sold out if you went to the home/home business option, even though they were still open...if you went to small business it basically said "your call is important to us, but we're experiencing a high volume of calls, so try again later"

they're just dumb...largest manufacturer of PCs getting out of the market, selling all their toughpad inventory for cheap, and losing money all day today because their website problems werent limited to buying touchpads, you couldnt buy a laptop or printer or anything else without getting the same errors

This thread proves my theory that there is a fucking huge market for a $99 tablet.

i shoulda screencapped the shipping options for my order...the most expensive one was less than $20

i wonder if the price discrepancy is because there are more 32GB devices or because they know they're selling them all over the place so they're anticipating having to ship orders of more than 1 from different warehouses

Holy crap, that Opera trick actually worked. Now lets see if I get two since I don't think the original order went through

$21.87 for standard shipping which is weird because when I tried to order it the first time shipping was free. When I checked the order status it says mine is being processed where the original shows that the order was unable to be processed. Hopefully I get one of them, I still consider $130 a solid deal for one of these if I can actually get it.

well then the 32GB option must be cheaper shipping across the board, unless I just got lucky

yeah but if standard shipping on my single 32GB order was less than $5, and standard shipping on skywalker's single 16GB order was over $20, i think 32GB have cheaper shipping

now between the "Continue/Submit" link ... if you refresh that many times, it wont place that many orders will it



w00t ... "Your order has been submitted for processing and will be reviewed by a credit representative. If necessary, the credit representative will contact you to verify or obtain additional information."

gg opera trick, although you were nerve-racking ... now for the people to contact me saving it was all for nothing, and that i wont be getting tablets, but they will charge me anyway

patience grasshoppers, try to resist the urge to F5 everytime you get an hourglass on the right side of the URL bar because that means you've sent a request to the server and its working

but feel free to F5 anytime you get either an HTTP error or VBScript out of memory error

that's the same shipping cost i had for two 16gb's, catalyst ... glad to see someone else got that figure


actually, i did a frantic F5 a few times and it made it go through ... it was like an M16 3-burst F5-press

made it to confirmation page

total was 252.40 including tax and ship for two 16gb's

i'm going to be kicking myself if these show up on amazon with no tax/free shipping

i guess it's still a good deal, even with $15 tax

You would think HP would have beefier server architecture running their online store... they are failing on all fronts.

when would they normally expect this type of bandwidth though? definitely their fault, but not necessarily something they could've completely anticipated.
