    Last week I purchased a dell laptop for my home. As part of a promotional deal, it came with an Xbox 360 w/ kinect. Since I have no use for it and am not an avid video game player, I posted it for sale on craigslist. I recieved an email asking if I was willing to do an even trade for a brand new touchpad. The guy was lucky enough to pick up a few touchpads at $99 and was selling them on craigslist. So now I have a brand new touchpad

    If you want to really impress, come back and tell us when you get a 64gig white one for free.
    Oh, and a Pre3 also.

    For free.

    Yeah I realized that, but I had the xbox on line for a few days and nobody was biting. I got the offer to do an even trade so I went for it. I'm a previous owner of a Pre Plus and I love the OS. At the end of the day it was still free even if I use it just to browse the web and mess around with it.

    So far it seems to come in handy with keeping the GF quiet. She's been on it since I got it.

    Seriously, that's awesome. Way to stumble into a great deal on the TouchPad, and welcome to the community! It's a topsy-turvy, often frustrating ride, but it's seldom boring.

    OUCH, he got you good!


    you could have sold the xbox 360 w/kinect for about $300 on ebay, went and bought a touchpad from one of the many sellers on ebay $130 and still had $170 in your pocket for whatever you choose.

    I bet he laughed all the way home at the amazing deal he scored.

    Im far from hurting for cash, and I wasnt even expecting to get a free Xbox when I bought the laptop. I'm sure I could have gotten $250-$300 if I was patient wait for a buyer, but the truth is, he made it easy for me. Even delivered the touchpad to my home. So at the end of the day, I purchased a laptop that I was going to buy regardless and got a free touchpad with it. Works for me!

    Yeah that's how I see it. The xbox would have sat there until it sold and from what I saw, they're only going for about $250 online since you can get the xbox w/ kinect for $299 + tax pretty much anywhere. $250 isnt going to make or break me and I got a pretty cool device for free with free delivery! lol

    Timing being key, and it is the way they are selling... Free XBox 360 for a TouchPad still = free TouchPad. EDIT: I'm having a heluva time finding one for $99.99 or 149.99.

    Nice, this is a great deal since you cant really get one of this bad boys any more. All this people downing you are really mad since you scored one and they been trying to get one since launch but cant afford it. Now that it dropped to 100 they cant find one.

    I have two, I'm just saying he could have bought one from the resellers on eBay for a little more then what is offered at the "hard to find" stores... and still had at least $150 dollars for "free" basically, since he got the xbox for free.

    HP Touchpad FS 16GB and 32GB

    there is a guy selling his for $129, new. he has 10.
