HP TouchPad
Combining Staples discounts will get you a 16GB HP TouchPad for $350

HP's webOS 3-based TouchPad has been on the market for only a few weeks, but you can already find the 9.7" tablet for much less than MSRP. Members over at Slickdeals are reporting that both HP's online and store and OfficeMax will be selling the 16GB and 32GB versions of the tablet for $399 and $499 respectively from August 5 through August 7 -- this marks a $100 price cut from the original MSRPs.

If $100 isn't enough of a price drop for you, Staples currently has an even hotter deal. They currently have an instant discount of $50 off 16GB and 32GB TouchPads. They also have an additional $100 off coupon (in-store only) which lasts until August 7. That means that you could get a 16GB TouchPad for $350 or a 32GB version for $450. 

HP's TouchPad got off to a rocky start with reviewers, as they complained about a lack of apps and bugs/performance issues that cropped up with the latest iteration of webOS. Reviewers also didn't have many kind words to say about the build quality and heft of HP's latest tablet entry. 

HP has addressed most of the bugs with the webOS 3.0.2 update, but those wanting a more svelte webOS-based tablet will have to wait until the next generation.

No, Netflix brings a page up saying you must be running Windows or Mac OS in order to use it, which is lame. It has to have an App to run it on non-Windows tablets.

Perhaps someone that owns a WebOS system can try replacing their browser's user agent string with a desktop version?

If that doesn't work, then maybe there's a Silverlight setting / key that can be altered...
