    Pretty sure the only way you can get them shipped to AU is through one of the mail forwarders mentioned earlier, otherwise you'll have to look on eBay.


    *facepalm*

    Did you read any of the posts before yours?

    Despite my earlier sledges during the thread I just ordered one from barnes and noble lol. Couldn't resist the fad and will probably be selling on ebay for 50 bucks in 2 weeks. :sick:

    nah, it should be nice enough to use and keep. for the kids, for the toilet, for public transit. tablets have their place.

    how much was postage?

    im tempted ever so much. anyone wanna combine postage?

    5 bucks postage to my forwarder probably 30ish from there. It would have been better at Harvey norman but oh well. Could be worse I could have bought one on thurs last week :sick:

    Crap, my order went through twice, should be possible to offload one of them for at least $140, so that I can make my money back. Right?

    Mine is pending and there is an error message in my order, guess I won't have to worry about getting rid of the spare ones at least.

    The TL;DR is that Harvey Norman put their stuff on sale in stores, pretty much everywhere sold out in <30 minutes, lots of people mad they missed out, few people happy they got one. May be more sales during the week on hp.com (US site) as stock from retailers gets returned

    Ugh, looks like I missed out on getting one through Amazon. And the HP.com site is still having issues, particularly the page to enter my email for notification of new stock :p

    What's the go on the accessory front? I'm guessing a case doesn't come with the device, but HN is supposed to have 1/2 price accessories. Unsure of stock levels.
