And to be perfectly honest I don't mind paying that much, went out looking at tablets today in stores and even looked at the cheap chinese ones, this one for the price, is actually quite decent. Only issue is HP ditching it :) , other than that, decent screen size, capacitive touch screen, and a year warranty (Not sure how good it will be as I have limited experience with MobiCity). Better than entering a bidding war on trademe and possibly not receiving a receipt etc with it.
I have a funny feeling I was just caught up in the heat of the moment and may live to regret it but ah well, it's only money :p , worst comes to worst and I absolutely hate it I can always take a loss of a couple of hundred and re sell. Now to look for some accessories :D
*All of the above is just reassuring myself I made the right decision.
