    I think maybe people here interest in buying one. Just go to eBay.com and search it.

    The price is $425. Quite reasonable if firesale never happen & HP not ditch its webOS devices.

    I wonder how the seller have their stock.

    whatever the market will bear...

    also, it looks like it's the cheapest b.i.n panda on u.s. ebay (as of this post).

    Funny, because I see people paying 350 for the regular 16gb SKU all the time. That seems to be the price the market is willing to pay for a TouchPad on average. 425 for a 64gb wifi variant seems OK.

    I think TouchPad 64GB Panda for $425 is fair pric. Personally I won't buy it even very tempted. Lots of 32GB on eBay sell at USD300-350.

    I don't think the three posters above have any idea what a Panda TouchPad even is, but hey, hate away, dudes.

    This site also has the white 64gb TouchPad for $425:

    I can see why it demands more, being that it's a rare tablet, but it's also a discontinued tablet. The most I would probably pay is the $250 that Cost Central sold them for.

    That was exactly what I thought. It is rare but yet discontinued. Buy it at high price really not worth even I'm webOS fans. But surely this isn't a problem for wealthy people. This is same case with Pre 3. I found almost all seller ask high price for it. Some wealthy people don't have problem to buy it. But for most people including me still need to think twice before buy it.

    does anyone really believe that a rare and discontinued electronic device is worth a premium?

    No, but not with WebOS devices. Really surprising yet confusing

    Forgive me for saying the following...

    Let me put it as bluntly as I can. Anyone who buys a Touchpad
    at $425 is an *****. Even if it has 64GB of memory and 3G(or is it 4G?)
    The clear exception to this is someone who is a loyal webOS
    supporter and can't live with anything but a webOS tablet.

    I suppose the bigger ***** might be someone who paid $800
    for a new iPad 2, 64GB, 3G. Oh wait... that was me, three
    monthsago.

    The Panda doesn't just have 64GB of storage. It also has a GSM radio so it can get 3G data from AT&T, etc, and act as a backup cellphone.

    Depends on the device. I had a Game Genie for the original NES that was extremely rare and discounted due to a lawsuit between Nintendo and Galoob.

    The only thing driving the prices for the TouchPad's is the fact that they are hard to find, and once HP makes this final batch, you won't be able to buy one anymore (unless it's used). Besides the sentimental value the TouchPad has for some (mostly the webOS community), it's not worth much.

    Try taking it to a retailer to see if it has any trade-in value

    The absolute last thing I think about when buying a computer or cell phone is what some crappy retailer has for it's 'trade-in' value. Actually I don't think about it at all.
