    TouchPad chassis still mysteriously cracking - HP keeps quiet about design flaw | TechEye

    HP, the company which most recently hadn't a clue what it was doing or where it was going, is maintaining a kind of hush about a design fault with its quickly-flogged bargain bucket TouchPads.

    The WebOS devices were offered on the cheap to punters as the rumours flew about HP shutting down its product division. Still, in a statement, HP said it remained committed to WebOS and would continue to offer customer support.

    "..Despite maintaining a silence on an obvious design fault here in the UK, the fact is, HP is aware of the problem.

    A customer services spokesperson for the company told us today it's a "known issue" and confirmed that it was a design flaw in the first runs of the product. HP is quietly replacing the cases and it is under warranty.

    Even though there's evidence to the contrary, HP's communication team says the dodgy manufacturing is "not an issue in the UK" and is not offering any further comment.."

    Classic HP obfuscation!

    And that is why I wouldn't buy a TP for full price. Been through this kind of crap with 2 laptops before.
