It’s hard to advocate a high-end Android tablet against one of Apple’s iPads, but we’ve always said that if the price is right a Google-powered slate can be a more-than-decent choice. Enter the Asus Transformer Pad TF300T, available today for a mere 285-bucks from Best Buy Computing Clearance.
Mind you, this is not a sleek budget-friendly 7-incher like the Nexus 7, but a full-fledged massive 10-inch tablet with an above-par spec sheet. Now, don’t be expecting a Full HD panel or a state-of-the-art CPU from this baby.
Instead, what you’ll be getting is a 1,280 x 800 pix res IPS LCD screen, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of on-board storage, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and an 8 MP rear-facing camera. Nothing too extraordinary (besides maybe the 8 MP snapper,) but it’s awfully attractive at less than $300.
To take advantage of the deal, you’ll have to enter the “TRUELOVE25” coupon code on Best Buy before checkout. The $400 list price will magically go down to $284.99 and you’ll have a snazzy red tab to wrap up with a bow and give as a Valentine’s Day gift to your better half. Or you can keep it, because there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be in style, is it?
