HP TouchPad fire sale to resume December 11th

the models being sold are refurbished and buyers are limited to buying two tablets. An additional three-piece accessory kit bundling a case, wireless keyboard and a charging dock will be offered for $79.
Just in case you have let the specs slip from your mind, the HP TouchPad has a 10 inch display with resolution of 1024 x 768. Under the hood lies a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB of RAM aboard with webOS 3.0 installed. HP obviously put this together in order to be ready for the holiday shopping season.
If I had $99, I would buy one. I would take this over that Amazon Kindle in a heartbeat. Well, never mind... they are refurbished and bundled in this deal... forget it. I wish I had had $99 with which to buy a new one when Best Buy did their fire sale... crud.

Refurbished garbage for $99?!! So not worth it. This tablet actually has the same ram and weaker processor than my Skyrocket. I've had nothing but bad luck with refurbished electronics. NEVER AGAIN. It'll probably be a huge headache trying to exchange a busted one.

Of they get an ICS ROM ticking on it then maybe but only under that circumstance. If not ill get an HTC Flyer for $299 or a galaxy tab 8.9. When it IS updated to ICS the difference between a Tegra 2 or Tegra 3 chip unless you are into gaming. I've boycotted video games after Skyrim was eating up most of my study time.

Despite it being a really supbar tablet, it is definitely worth $100. I got mine during the first sale and even though it is rather slow and not much to it as far as app goes, IT WAS ONLY $100!! How could that not be worth it. Not to mention once cyanogen comes out of alpha it will make the tablet a great buy.
