    where did you order it? Did you pre-order for the release scheduled in october? I'd like to get in for that price..
  6. @heyscotttt, there are no pre-orders, HP took down their email notification page about a week ago after having so many people sign up for the alert.

    What guest said, I believe they will be sending out notifications to those individuals first on the e-mail list. And this time around they will be limiting how many you can purchase to discourage resellers as well.
  8. Cool. I got one and a xoskins screen protector to make it last. I will probably pic one up for my wife too. I hope it goes for $100 again.

    I got it from Tigerdirect.ca but its now unavailable since last week.
  10. I'd ordered a 32gb unit on 8/22..... today HP billed my CC and sent a email that it will ship in 4-6 weeks...wish my new toy would arrive sooner.
  11. When the firesale started I went down to my local Costco and snapped up eight of the 32 gig babies. I didnt know it was a good deal. I sold 3 on the local craigs list for $350 and people snapped them up. I will come by again when the next wave come and snap up a handful
