Of course. But "something" can mean an HDMI cable. Or a 17" laptop.
You don't just stumble upon SOME information about a product search that specific and then leave it to an associate at Best Buy to hand you the rest. That is either irresponsible or a blatant ruse.

Then I'm part of the 0.001% too.
Thing is, you are assuming the innocence of AMD, but no one has even suggested that maybe that associate HAD done some research about convertible tablets and, like our partially search capable friend, happened to only find SOME information, none of which led to a wacom digitizer. So it is JUST as reasonable to assume that this associate genuinely believed the product didn't exist as it is to assume that half-search harry didn't quite know where to purchase that one tablet only one company makes.
And the final comment only helps my point. Every single person on overclock.net is an informed buyer.
