Well, since you must "have a clue", and enough of one to totally discount my 20 plus years in the IT field, can you answer a few pertinent things for me, to help me along with this "clue getting."

In spite of the mfg's suggested price (which is the same as the iPad), what's the actual average street price? Keep in mind, Apple doesn't allow their dealers to discount, HP does. Understand, the point is that HP has a pretty set selling standard. It's different than Apple's. HP's vendors are used to being able to run sales and discounts.
What was HP's sales goal. Did they meet that goal. See, it's important to know before telling a big company that their price structure is wrong, to know whether or not it's actually achieving their goals.
So, clue us in with some real information, not just the desires of you and your "friends" for a lower price.
