    Nothing at BB in Pleasanton and no idea if they were getting any in. The girl was a real ***** about it with her damn little school girl attitude.

    Pretty dissappointed with Best Buy employees I've talked to. All of them have said "we're sold out and not getting more." But that was the same thing my girl was told Sunday morning when she was 1st in line at 9am. She waited anyway, and got one, since it turned out the employee was just lieing.

    It's not the employee's fault...it's their lack of communication from upper management. My son works for BB and was told by store management Friday that they had already shipped all 84 units back to HP when in fact they had not. I pestered the Hull out of them Sat. afternoon about how Walmart, Staples, etc. were selling them for $99 & 2 hrs. later they put them on sale! So these employees only know what they're told & my son said that corporate didn't give them the go ahead until 5pm...
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    My wife got lucky today. She went to the BB in Brentwood CA before they had opened to try to find one and they told her nothing had come in yet. (there were 3 other people looking for Touchpads also) She left and went home. She had to go out again an hour later and decided to stop by just to check. Good thing she did. She found the manager of the store and asked him if any Touchpads came in. He said "you are in luck, they just arrived and they are unloading the truck right now". She picked up a 32GB. She forgot to ask how many they got in. So there you have it they can come in at anytime. Good luck out there....

    I worked electronics retail at the time of the Nintendo Wii, and it was like this as well. Sometimes Nintendo and corporate wouldn't even notify us of dropshipments. We would get like 4 units in 1 afternoon, and sell them all within minutes. We would just tell people we had no idea when they were coming in, but people though we were lying

    One south of Nashville got 38 (None sent to any other Nashville-area stores, it appears). People were in line before they opened and the first 38 were handed a ticket, so they were all "gone" before the store opened.

    BB in Parma, Ohio got some today, went there at lunch for a Touchstone (missed it by one person) and the employee first told me 100 each (16/32) so I left and then called the fiance and asked if I should get a Touchpad for her and she said yes.. Went back and then he said they were taking number and he only had like 10 16's and 8 32's... I just said screw it and left because I didn't want to deal with the line wait for it...

    I can say for Brooklyn BB, they had more than 70, because I was the 70th on the line and many people bought even after me.

    Just tried again at my store in Dublin, Ca. Still nothing. Said they didn't get any in today. So either they'll get some in later and I'll be screwed or I try again tomorrow morning, which I don't really want to

    I remember those days, most of the time the customers knew we were getting them before we did.

    The manager at my local Best Buy told me this afternoon that they won't be getting any more. I can't let myself believe him. I think I'll swing by again tomorrow...and the next day...

    i went by a local best buy today, and was told that they have a few coming, but won't be able to sell them because HP was recalling them. Dont know how much I can believe the best buy person. I guess they got some and sold them yesterday also.
