This sums up my feelings very well.

A "half-hour system freeze" isn't a "bug," it's a catastrophic failure. If that happened to me--and nothing even remotely close has--I'd be ecchanging the unit promptly, not musing on how it relates to Palm's launch record or how well HP's TouchPad rollout was executed, especially when the vast majority of posts on this site tell a completely different story.
While exchanging the the tablet would have been a viable and reasonable response and action, I feel as though the Touchpad overall failed to impress me at it's most rudimentary functions.
Am I saying that my benchmarks for liking the Touchpad were the most flexible? No, it's not, and whenever I'm spending a large sum of money on a device, it rarely is. However, I would argue that it was rational.
This is all in my opinion, you're not obliged to agree with me and I can understand why people wouldn't want to. I still want the device, and I may purchase it when it has a little more inertia in the technology scene, with more developer support.
For now, I am happy to own a HP Veer and use it every day. Hopefully HP/Palm can step up their game just a little more to really convince me to purchase a tablet.
