So? They must have sold like one million of these. These things happen to every product. My Brother bought a brand new Mercedes and one week later the steering wheel came off!!! Yet you wouldn't expect that to happen to such an expensive car would you? No product is perfect.

I had an HP.  There was a problem with the screen hinges.  HP fixed it, no problem.

Customer service is hit and miss.  I've heard the same or worse about every other company that makes laptops.

   Well I went to Best Buy and bought the best deal they had going. It was a Toshiba on sale for three something. Im happy about that. I didnt want to pay a lot. I also got the dell streak which im sending back today . Im going to wait on the G slate its supposed to be out next month.

    Im also taking my nook back today as well. I dont like it. Its a cool device if you dont need customer service but I had a problem with a book I paid for not downloading on the device. It went downhill from there. I also noticed that Kindle has a better selection of free books that dont come out with that lame pdf looking format that a lot of B&Ns free books do.If you ask me the features of the kindle appear to be better anyhow. So I just ordered mine and should be getting it Tuesday as for this nook its going back.

Well so much for being cheap. I had to take the cheap Toshiba back and add two hundred for dollars for the 499 one. This is much better the other was entirely too slow.

Eh, I'd avoid the tablets with 3G/4G radios and opt for the WiFi only version. The latter will be less expensive up front, you won't have to pay monthly data fees, and you can wirelessly tether your phone to the tablet.

That's still cheap.  It probably beats what used to be $2000 about four or five years ago.
