I would be shocked if HP doesn't have both in-house and out-house counsel viewing this.

If the market rate is, for example, $250 on Ebay, and HP promised to deliver for $99, in a lawsuit HP might have to pay each undelivered buyer on the website $150 in damages.
If you think there are no class action lawyers already looking at this, you don't know how these kind of lawyers make a living.
