I'm still bummed I missed the firesale. I got an email today from HP saying they are sorry for the high demand and low quantity. They are working to make more available, but I won't hold my breath for an eol item to be come available. I did notice however there is a huge surplus on craigslist for around 250-275.
"They added that they will do it right, not fast (sounds a lot like Blizzard and Diablo 3, which folks are still waiting on, ahem, Blizzard)"
Basic principles of Engineer: You can have it on time, on budget, done right. Pick any two.
If you want it done right and it's free, it's going to take time. If it's from Blizzard, it's going to be right and it's going to be on budget, so it's going to take time. Deal with it. Go play Torchlight 2 while you wait.
Meanwhile, I'll sit here and cry because I missed the fire sale, too.

Lol, so very true... I know more than a few engineers that go by that motor, and justifiably so.
