Was anyone able to pick one up from this out of nowhere Ebay $99 fire sale?
I found out about it at roughly 6:58pm EST by accident. Rushed to get on ebay and pulled up HP's page, they were still showing as $599.99 for the 32GB model. Put in 2 in the buy box, and kept refreshing until 700PM rolled around.
At 700pm - price drops to $149.99. Clicked buy it now. Page loads.. loads.. and loads some more. Then it times out. Hit back, hit 2, buy it now, unable to find item or this item no longer available for sale.
Pull up the 16GB model, enter 2, buy it now, it times out also.
Repeat again, 2 ebay pages pulled up, one for the 16GB and one for the 32GB - finally the 32GB goes through, takes me to the "You're not done.." yet page, click pay with paypal, then says sorry this item has sold out.
Needless to say this was a headache of an experience. I walked away empty handed despite the fact that I was there at 700PM on the dot. Hopefully someone else had better luck than I did as these touchpads go as fast as CeeKay through his BBW play toys.
Same exact experience here.
I wonder how *anyone* got through. It's a sham, I tell you.
