For approx $1280 USD you can own a Touchpad GO!

HP Opal, Touchpad Go, 7988.00 ,

The ad states its condition as 9 out of 10

Still a rip off!

if that translates actually to about $100, i'll give you $200 to get it to me. if it's $1300, forget it.

I'm pretty sure the price is in Yuan. The page is Chinese, not Japanese. I suppose the price is justifiable, considering TouchPad Go's are pretty rare. You really expect to get one for $100?

The price is in Yuan (Chinese).
•7988 should be "approx" $1280 USD

Just looked at the specs closer. It's one of the GO's with NFC built in ..... Still a rip off!

Yes I do. Seller has sketchy reputation on Taobao. Even if she didn't, I wouldn't pay that much for one, Might have considered it a year ago, not now.
