Although others have posted the gist, here's the HP Press Release covering the WebOS (Touchpad) and 'plans' for their 'Personal Systems Group', which I believe covers their notebook computers as well as the desktops (not servers though, so Proliants will apparently remain HP)
Press release here
Look upon my Avatar, ye whiny, and despair!

They suck, you take big risk ordering from here. Not because Woot is bad. Its FedEx that's bad.
Woot, change your shipper and I'll be a customer again.
It's not FedEx that's bad... it's that the "home delivery" is handed off to the Post Office.
That hand-off is ugly ugly ugly!
I had one post-office guy decide to take off early, so he just marked the package "bad address" and returned it.
Another just sort of ... took a vacation ... for a week or so before it showed up.
And when you contact FedEx ... they say "it's with the Post Office, now, we have no information and no control..."
When you contact the Post Office they say, "It is a FedEx package, we have no information and no control..."
Which means ... in a regular postal delivery, the delivery person knows they'll catch a problem if they 'disappear' a package ...
but with a FedEx hand-off package ... they know if that package disappears or what-ever ... it will Never come back on Them...
so... it makes for a terrible terrible shipping choice!
a perfect day to have a great day on purpose...
or because the store clerk told you to...

Earliest complete cross-Woot sell-off EVER! Oh, wait... that's all yesterday's crap. We want new crap! We want new crap!
Onomatopoeia. It's not what it sounds like.
