I was able to snag on of the firesale HP Touchpads a few weeks ago. Never had a tablet and wouldn't ever get one at the current prices but coulnd't resist the uberlow price for the tech.
I used thetweaking guide on precentral.net to reduce logging, install preware and oc it to 1.5ghz, amongst other tweaks.
So far its a fun little machine for the price. Has enough apps so far and the flash browser makes up for what it doesn't have webwise. Makes a handy browser, music player, netflix player (w/ playon streaming from main pc) and now infocom machine.
