    Hey everyone,

    Considering the Touchpad came out July 1, 2011 and is comparable to the iPad 2 in specs I was wondering:

    Over 2 years and three months later, would it be worth picking one up? I have my original fire sale Touchpad in mint condition. It has no scratches on the screen, went in a case as soon as I got it out of the box and I am proud to say has NO cracks around the speakers!

    Anyway, given the insane number of choices, sizes and price points in the Android camp is it worth picking up a 2nd Touchpad at this point? (I would dual boot webOS and Android since the webOS ecosystem is all but gone unfortunately.)

    What would a good price be considering the dated technology, how well does Android work and is it worth it? I LOVE webOS which is why I want a back up unit. However, I also recognize that I can probably get comparable specs in a new Android tablet for around the same $$$ as a used Touchpad right now.

    What are your thoughts? Thanks!
