HP knocking $100 from TouchPad pricing August 5-7

Looking to grab an HP TouchPad? If you buy one from HP.com right now, you’ll save $50. But if you wait until this weekend, you’ll be able to grab one for $100 off. Sadly, it looks like the only one you’ll be able to get at that ridiculous discount is the 16GB TouchPad, but at $399.99 that’s a deal that just can’t be beat.

However, if you want to get a TouchPad today and just can’t wait for Friday, you’re still in luck. Staples has the hook-up for you in the form of a $100 coupon for just the TouchPad – and this one’s good for both the 16GB and 32GB varieties. Like HP’s deal, this coupon is only good through Sunday, August 7th. We don’t doubt that there will be future deals just as impressive as this, HP wants this thing to sell, after all, but if you were holding off on pulling the trigger, these discounts combined with this week’s webOS 3.0.2 update should probably help persuade at least a few.

Update: HP's discount page went live today - they're offering $100 off both the 16GB and 32GB TouchPads!
