Bought a Tablet PC!

The Gateway CX201X Tablet PC
Here's what my new computer looks like! It's called a "tablet pc" due to the fact that the display can spin around and lay flat against the keyboard, essentially turning it into an electronic clipboard. Even comes with a stylus (pen) that you can use to draw or interact with the computer.

2 GB of RAM, huge hard drive, latest processor, all the bells & whistles. Man, I can't wait for this thing to show up!!

Last Saturday, HSN also had a similar tablet from Gateway on special. Both Keri & I ordered one. I get a call from HSN yesterday that apparently they didn't have enough of these tablet pcs to go around, so they cancelled my order. No offers to be put on a waiting list, or getting a rain check, etc. Just a "Sorry, dude, but you're S.O.L."

Needless to say, that's the last time I'll be ordering from HSN. Hopefully Keri's order is fine and she won't have any problems.

Moral of this story? Avoid HSN. Go with a respectable company. Use QVC.

Well Jeff, you certainly have come up in the computer world! That looks like a pretty fancy one! And all that stuff that comes with it sounds very impressive. Can't wait to see it. You going to use it to have clients sign invoices?

Hell no!! Place that in the hands of a stranger so that they can sign an invoice?
