What would really be interesting to see is how they handle all the support calls that they're going to start to get. Having not one, but two machines that are flawed is really going to be an eye opener for Staples!

In my location, Home Depot and Staples are quite near one another, it will be interesting to see if either of these stores has any significant sales. With a normal product at HD, if there are no units of sale in about three weeks, then the product is gone from the store!
