Update: Looks like it was a pricing error, as the listing has been pulled. Bummer, dude.
The tour de force Asus Transformer Prime (which I reviewed in early December and came away highly impressed by) is listed at HH Gregg for just $400 - that's both in store (if you can find it one available, anyway) and online, too. That may not seem like seem like a bargain for the uninitiated who are more accustomed to the $400 price tag of the original Transformer, but keep in mind that this is the newer, much sleeker, and much more powerful Tegra 3-touting Prime model, which normally retails for $500.

It's not quite clear whether this is a promotional or permanent price, thanks to the lack of any "Sale" designations on the product page, so it's entirely possible that it is a pricing error. Still, if you're in the market for an Android tablet, there isn't a better bet to be had at the moment, let alone at this price.

Need a rehash of the Prime's pack-leading specs? No problem:

  • 10.1-inch 1280x800 Super IPS + display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.3GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 Processor with 12-core GPU (up to 1.4GHz in single-core mode)
  • 1GB RAM
  • microSD slot and microHDMI port (with support for 1080p video output) on tablet
  • SD card slot and USB port on dock
  • 8MP F2.4 rear shooter with 1080p video recording and continuous flash, 1.2MP front camera
  • 8.3mm thin, 263mm wide, 180.8mm tall, 586g (1.29 lbs)
  • 12 hour battery life playing 720p video, 18 hours with keyboard dock
  • Metallic spun finish
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update rolling out now
