Did anyone manage to nab the bargain of the year?

By which I mean a brand new £399 HP tablet for £18?

Thanks FE - A genuine bargain...if you can get one.

FE. Where did you get the £18 from?

Even though, like you, I have an iPad, at that price I'd have bought one!

Did I say £18?

That really would be the bargain of the century - I meant to say £89 of course. Sorry if I raised anyone's hopes. Nevertheless, £89 for a device like this is still a bargain.

Yes, it looks like it should be a great bargain.

But related PCA articles like "WebOS: What Went Wrong?", "R.I.P HP TouchPad, we hardly knew you" and "HP TouchPads to be dumped in landfill?" don't exactly inspire confidence and make me want to go out and spend £89 on one.

Not a very good review from PCA either. It appears to be a bit "slow" shall we say.

If everyone has a similar opinion, it will have been doomed from the off.

I tried Curry`s this morning but nothing doing, the chap I spoke to said they knew about them but would not be having any to sell.

I tried Amazon but it told me that as all the Tablets were sold via its attached sellers the full price would still need to be paid. The person I talked with hadn't a clue about the firesale which makes me think I was probably talking with someone based in deapest India.
