Dixons Retail Group sold out in what seemed to be a matter of seconds (although it wouldn't tell us exactly how fast or how many tablets it shifted), with scores of you telling us on Twitter that you were gutted to miss out.
Dixons Retail's head of media relations, Mark Webb, told TechRadar, "This is a good product at a great price. Demand has been phenomenal and at times it has been frankly crazy.
"We're sorry this has left a number of customers frustrated, but as you can see from your twitter feed and other social media, everybody wants one..."
A number of other online retailers have since followed suit, with bargain TouchPads currently as in demand as the unreleased iPad 3.
The best advice we can give you is to get yourself over to HP's holding page, have your credit card at the ready and hope against hope.
