BestBuy Sells HP TouchPad in US Again

Written on August 22, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

BestBuy started selling their remaining TouchPad stocks last Sunday.

In the wake of HP’s decision to shutter its webOS division, ending all hardware development and production, BestBuy has reconsidered its position in selling the TouchPad. Instead of returning unsold ToucPads to HP, BestBuy decided to sell all the remaining units in their hands.

While not all stores have stock, those that do only have them in limited numbers. It is also expected that it will quickly sell out of any remaining stocks on hand. BestBuy stores which have units of the said device in stock will be selling the 16GB Wi-Fi only model for $100, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model will be sold for $150. The stocks of the said device are limited to one unit per customer, while all the sales will be final with no exchange or refunds offered for any reason.

The expected rush for the remaining units represents an interesting scenario for HP. Questions are likely to be asked as to whether it exited the market too soon – given the renewed interest in the product – regardless of support for it being severed beyond its 12 month warranty.

Best Buy Delays MacBook Air Shipping

Written on June 27, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Best Buy postpones orders for MacBook Air, and reported several details regarding Apple's plan in updating their current-generation laptops.

Best Buy suspended the shipping of MacBook Air, except for those who ordered through Apple’s online store. The retailer pointed out that the portables are still available in land-based stores, but were reported out of stock in some locations. At certain stores in U.K, purchasing MacBook Airwith 128GB of storage will be allowed only if the buyer is willing to pick it up on the store.

As rumors said, Apple is going to add new features to its Macbook Air: Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors and the Thunderbolt port. Apple is also expected to create a Gold Master version of Mac OS X Lion before launching them in July. The updated model will have almost 250 features, including a full screen apps, additional multi-touch gestures and Mission Control.

According to AppleInsider, the initial orders for Macbook Air were 400,000 units and were expected to reach eight million in the third quarter upon its launching. Actually, this is not really surprising, as Apple executive – Phil Schiller – boasted that the Macbook Air has been the key driver of the company. “It’s beautiful, it’s thin, it’s light, it’s fast. The whole PC industry wants to copy it,” Schiller stated.
