I don't think method of payment should count you out. 


Didn't think so, I suppose there's less credit card fees for them. Just gives me the day to find the money :)

I have my fingers in a few pies, and if I get more than one, will offer at zero markup here (no preorders sorry lolol)

Edit: Did I mention 'no preorders'? Don't waste your time and mine sending me a private message. Read the above sentence...

Left over stock from the failed product sales. They didnt just go out and buy 200 tablets and dirt cheap prices to sell them here.

Other IT suppliers have yet to update pricing on their websites, most have sent the old stock back to HP rather than trying to sell it.

I imagine they have hundreds of orders to sift through now.

Shouldn't really be a big deal, just go through the first orders in charging credit cards until no stock is left...
