One of the most appealing aspects of owning a tablet from ASUS' Transformer line is the optional keyboard dock. It turns the tablet into an Android-powered netbook of sorts, making note taking, replying to emails, and other general productivity-based things much easier. The included battery also boosts usable time by up to four+ hours on most models, making the dock even more useful.

The main problem with the keyboard accessory, however, is the price tag; after spending $400+ on a new tablet, many users don't want to shell out the extra $150 to add the dock. After all, for $550, you can get a [somewhat] decent low-end laptop.

From now until September 1st, however, you can get the dock free if you buy a Transformer Pad (TF300T) from Sears. At $400, the 32GF TF300T is a bit pricier than you'll find it at other places, but the added value of a free dock makes this a great buy. Hit the link below to grab it.

Specs:

  • 10.1", 1280x800 display, up to 350nits of brightness
  • Nvidia Tegra 3 (quad-core) CPU
  • 32GB storage, microSD card slot (full SD Card slot and USB Port on the dock)
  • 1GB of DDR3 RAM
  • Android 4.1.1
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 7.11" x 10.35" x 0.38" (HxWxD), 1.39 lbs

    On a more serious note - doesn't this tablet have an issue with Wifi because of the metal back and they fixed it in the T700 with the part plastic back?

      The TF300 doesn't have a metal back - it's plastic. I have this tablet and have no issues with Wi-Fi.

        Unfortunately, the dock is out of stock. So, can't add it to the cart.
