What happened to all the tablet laptops?

Hey, just wondering what happened to all the tablets shown on the site and flyers. Seems that they've poofed. Does it mean that BestBuy doesn't carry them anymore? That would be shocking...also quite unbelievable. o.O

Im looking to buy a tablet laptop in a few days and Im wondering if anyone could shed some light on my mystery.

Re: What happened to all the tablet laptops?

Based on a search I performed at Best Buy it appears they are not carrying them at the moment.

I believe Vista caused the stores to stop carrying them, as far as I could tell, Vista didn't work with the tablets we were getting in.  I do know you could get them on the Best Buy for business site, which had computers running with Windows XP.

You could go to a Best Buy store and they could talk you through a few of them that are online, and you could purchase it online from the store, and then just have it shipped home, or to the store if you would like Best Buy to do something to it.

 

Microsoft is at fault here, lol.

i don't know what u're talking about, i've played with those tablet with vista, hand recognitions, even with paint, it works fully.

 

i guess we stopped carrying them because of not a lot of people like it, just like the velocities, if they're not popular, or people aren't buying them, they become "online only" through best buy's website

I believe it depends on the store as well, I know our smaller store doesn't carry as much as larger stores do.

 

We had a few tablets, but havent seen any since XP, we do have those TouchSmart ones by HP, is that what you are talking about?
