We get asked it a lot, surprisingly: "Where can I get a TouchPad?" It's a rare beast these days, that HP TouchPad, but today you can had over to woot.com subsite Moofi and get a refurbished 32GB TouchPad for $194.99. Unlike Woot proper, which is a deal a day, Moofi's deals last for much longer - you have six whole days left to take advantage of this offer.
Now, $194.99 is nearly fifty bucks higher than the firesale pricing of the 32GB TouchPad back in the day, and that was for a new tablet, not a refurbished version like we have here. But it's also a good $400 less than the launch price less than a year ago. It might be slightly used, but HP's gone over them with a fine-toothed comb and is throwing in a 90-day warranty.
Should you grab one? Opportunities to pick up a TouchPad have been growing fewer and farther between with each passing month since the great Leopocalypse, and we expect that trend to continue. Less than $200 isn't a bad deal, but then again, there are new (but smaller) tablets available for that price, or you can put your money towards a newer big-screened tablet, though that'll cost you dearly too. If you want webOS, well, this is your only option.
