So here's what I know about Best Buy.

KEEP TRYING!

After standing in line Sunday morning, and on Saturday (at another) and today, I finally got two!

I called around and finally found someone who would TALK about them. They told me a certain store had some "in transit" and so I blasted to that store (trucks usually get there between 3 and 5 from what I was told, at least in this area).

Waited about 5 minutes at CS desk (reading a book on my phone) and they started setting up the line thingys.

This BB had actually gotten ~ 50 of each...

The job thing is the only thing that kept me from getting one for my fiance today at the local best buy close to me.. Oh well.. She wasn't heartbroken, she'll just steal mine and play with it, lol.

So... I called my local bestbuy tonight about an hour after receiving cancel email from Amazon/onSale.... and low and behold I get "Man, we have a bunch of each model but you better hurry"... So I jumped in my car and flew down to bestbuy... About 5 minutes... Same guy that answered phone was at counter and could tell by look on my face... Said, I've sold 12 since you called... BUUUUT Still had over 10 left in each model... Grabbed myself a 32gb, FIIINALLY!!!

Also, clerk was strictly enforcing a "One of each model limit"... I could get a 16 and 32 but could not get 2 16s or 2 32s....

Def, keep trying!!

All I know is after these past 5 days, BEST BUY CAN SUCK IT. They have been absolutely atrocious at dealing with the whole situation and not to mention the douchebag employees all snatch up the Touchpads and they don't tell any customers about them. And they lie about being in stock and when the trucks come etc etc.

According to the Best Buy store in Tucker, GA: "We don't know if we are getting any more. HP has not told us if we are getting any more"

Got mine bright and early in the morning, 10am sharp when the store opened. Take a look at the line though...I got to the pads when there were 8 left, including both 16 and 32 gig tablets.
