First tablet here. We've got a couple desktops, couple latops and a netbook so a tablet seemed like an unnecessary luxury. It still is for me although it was a luxury I could justify at $149 for the 32gig model.
My first one. I honestly thought I would NEVER get souly based on pricing. I am VERY happy to own one now though. Especially when I thought a kindle was the best I was ever going to get. This thing kicks the living crap out of that little e-reader ha ha. At 250, I would have said no. At 150, I would have been insane not too get one.
My wife read the breaking news on Fri the 19th and I started looking after she told me how much she really wanted one, so I was able to get the last 16gb from Walmart around here, played with it for 24 hours patched it and then I wanted one too
Buy Wed this past week her boss at Staples could sell us a 32gb at our discounted price ( 130 plus tax) so I said yes yes and so these are both our first.
She sells the Xoom tablet and Galaxy tab and yet for the money and after I patched these and Updated she likes these better.
It's my first. I was planning on getting an iPad sometime within the next year or two. I expect I'll still go with an iPad eventually, but I couldn't pass up a $99 tablet. I'm really pretty happy with WebOS, and I'm already moderately dependent on the tablet for reading Kindle books and writing on the go. (I already had an iPhone and I was reasonably happy reading things on it, until I got the TouchPad.)
I sold myself on the TouchPad as a PDF reader for my research, but that actually isn't going so well until I find an annotation solution. I'm thinking of attempting an Ubuntu install next weekend for that purpose.
Yup, my first tablet (I have a desktop, laptop and iPod Touch).
I love it for what it is (and the fire-sale price) but I still look at those iPad music making/controlling apps and wouldn't mind if someone got me one for Christmas ... Then I fancy a casual Flash-based browse and realise the world isn't such an unjust place ...
wanted the Tpad from day 1...but would never pay the price...same with iPad to much $. I snagged a 16gb $99 special.
I'm in the camp that I don't think you need a tablet. But for the price it goes beyond rational. Having it now..I only used my laptop a few times in over a week... Can't wait to get a case so I can take it out of the house! It does all I need it too..and now with doc editing...it can do all I need
My first. I have a desktop and laptop, as well as droid phone and itouch, so never really felt the need for a $500 tablet. I actually got this one through work, however I really like it and its great, now to just figure out a way to tether my droid phone to it and it would be perfect. Once the firesale hit, ive been trying to find one for my parents, hopefully some more will popup somewhere.
My first as well. I had planned on saving up to get an iPad eventually, like when version 3 hit the shelves. Now having the TP for little over a week, I am in love with WebOs and I don't see myself going to the iPad.....at least in the forseeable future. I have nothing against any of the companies, I even own a 27" iMac, but I love this little thing. I even went out and bought a Pre 2 yesterday just so I could have WebOs on my phone!
Nearly my first. As in, the tracking has now shifted to 'out for delivery' from the depot 20 miles away. I am breathlessly scanning the horizon.
I've had a variety of eInk readers and an Android Galaxy S phone though.
Did you order some binoculars? If so, take a breath and then scan the horizon with those!
I'm still trying to find one. Maybe the HP FS2 (Firesale 2) will happen and give me a fighting chance? I've made a bunch of calls to BBs, Staples, Officemax/depot/etc., Walmarts....no luck. It's funny how the greeting message at Bestbuy says "we are currently out of TouchPads, we will update this message if things change" or something like that.
If I get one, this will be my first tablet...so I haven't voted yet.

I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!
