HP TouchPad $99 Fire Sale - Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Touch the TouchPad
PC giant Hewlett Packard's decision last Thursday to spin off its PC business and drop all WebOS devices has left retailers such as Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, and Wal-Mart scrambling to offload their stock of TouchPad by slashing the price of the tablet to $99. However, despite the fire sale, should you buy a TouchPad?
PC giant HP launched the WebOS-based tablet TouchPad barely two months ago, and last week it said its board had authorized the exploration of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group and it plans to close down its WebOS device business.
