Newegg never bought in! Of all the vendors in the world I just found that one unbelievable. Secondly, I had called my local rural Staples around 10:00 AM on Saturday the 20th after reading on the slickdeals site that Staples managers were authorized to sell them at the fire sale rate. As expected, the person I spoke with didn't have a clue about the situation but I requested she look into it and give me a call. Within five minutes she called me back and informed me they had a 32GB and they would sell it at $149.99 (Surprise #2) and hold it until 5:00 PM. As I pulled into the lot my son told me his store was sold out. Turned out they had two and I purchased both.
