Welp, looks like this is the end of the line. For real this time. HP's TouchPad has been a tough item to get in recent months -- right after that price drop from $499 to $99. We suspected that all stock was already depleted, but evidently a few remain. But now there's a catch to getting one. HP and Best Buy have announced that starting on November 1st, the TouchPad can be purchased for $149.99 with the purchase of an HP or Compaq Laptop, Desktop or All-in-One computer. Customers can take advantage of this deal online at BestBuy.com, and at all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile standalone stores nationwide.

It's tempting enough to lure some buyers into buying HP PC. I planned to get one myself when I buy the DM1Z next time.

Still a good price.

I wonder if the many unhappy Best Buy customers (who ordered the Touchpad online but were given refunds in store during pick up) were given the op to purchase one before this promo. I'm sure there will be some complaints online soon enough.

Has HP dropped web os all together or are they still debating what they are going to do? Didnt they have an update for the touchpad recently even though they dropped the os?
