I got the Galaxy! I must've gotten lucky, because Staples didn't have it in store, and so tried to order it online in an attempt to use that coupon, but all of a sudden it was also out of stock online (it was in stock the day before). I almost ended up going to another Staples to get the 16gb, although I desperately wanted the 32gb if I could use the coupon on it, and so I actually tried going to Best Buy, not expecting anything, and got it cleared for a pricematch!

The girl working looked up some stuff, then said she had to talk to her manager. They seemed to talk a lot, and by the way they were talking it seemed like it wouldn't work, but when she came back she simply said, "Alright, that's fine. Just go over to the computer section and they'll get you one." I was so happy, and even when I went to the counter, the people seemed a little skeptical and was like, "Who was the manager you talked to?" I eagerly tried to describe him, and they were like, "Oh ok, gotcha!"

Unlike the above post, they actually put on tax after taking off 100 bucks, and so the total came out to be about 531 dollars. I was so tense the entire time, and I tried to act like I expected the pricematch to go through, whew..

Thanks to everyone for telling me about the pricematch!!

Looks like we both made out winners. Now, I expect after the next few months I will make some conclusions on what exactly I use the tablet for and what I don't use it for and can then determine in the future whether a new quad core tablet might be appropriate and what features I need to look for. Sort of like my first smart phone purchase with the Samsung Galaxy phone. Now I know what to look for.

I love my 10.1. My friend dumped his Trans to get one after he saw mine.
