I think HP had a contract with the manufacture to produce so many units. When they decided to give up on the touchpad the set number of units was never reached so they still had to pay for the set amount. So with the huge demand for touchpads they resumed production. When they come back in stock it should be for $99 again it is just HP trying to recover some of its losses.Kayone said:Same with the Aaron's here.
The manager there told me that the $99 sale was a limited time sale and that HP restarted their production on them and that it was up to the retailers to set the price.
