I sent this email to an HP rep:
"Iím HIGHLY excited for the Touchpad, but I need to know when and where I can buy it as I will be using this for business and personal. Iíd really like to have it this weekend for a trip."
"I can definitely sell it to you when the product is releasedÖ While I canít be specific, I would say that you should plan on making other arrangements this weekend. Sorry about that. Please contact me with any questions."
DANG IT! Heading to Chicago this weekend for 4 days and was hoping for the Touchpad...ehhh
