If you're looking for a tablet that can also function as a laptop, it's hard to beat ASUS' Transformer series. And out of the current lineup, the reigning champ is definitely the Infinity. Its 1900x1200 display is one of the best you can get in an Android tablet, and the 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 keeps things running smoothly. Plus, when coupled with the keyboard dock, the battery life is pretty phenomenal. The thing is - even at Amazon's price of $630 - it's a little on the steep side, given the current competition.

If this device is on your Christmas wishlist this holiday season, however, a very appropriate price for the tablet and dock combo pack just showed up over at Adorama: the whole setup can be yours for a cool, crisp five-hundred dollar bill. That's by far the lowest price we've seen this slate going for, and given that it puts it on par with the 32GB Nexus 10, it's a solid deal, too.

Specs:

  • 10.1" 1920x1200 Super IPS+ display
  • 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front
  • Android 4.1.1

It's hard to say how long this deal will last, so hit the source link to grab it before they're gone.

    Would make an excellent replacement for the TF101 but I cannot find any more crisp $500 bills in my house :(

    This should've launched exactly like this, at this price. Same goes for the Surface RT. The dock should be pre-packaged in the same freakin box, it's the main attraction for crying out loud.

    STAY FAR FAR FAR AWAY FROM THE INFINITY!!!

    I have both the Infinity and the dock, dock lasted about 2 months before it fell apart. If you want your infinity to be usable you'll have to unlock it and try some of the aosp roms. Putting system tuner and paranoid android have made it a much better device but I wouldn't recommend anyone buy one of these.

      Anecdotal evidence. Mine works awesome. I unlocked and dual boot with Lubuntu but still have original ROM on there most of the time.

      THE SCREEN, OH GOD THE SCREEEEEENNNN. So, so, awesome to see your mouse cursor that small...

        The Asus tab io issues are well known and a major complaint of Asus tablet users in general, especially the Infinity.

        The internal memory is a bottleneck, they put the same internal memory and memory controller in all of the Infinity's so yours suffers from the same issue but perhaps you're content with a device that doesn't perform on par with it's price tag.

          I know about the i/o issues which I thought were partially mitigated in an update.

          I can't say I have much time on it so it may not be as apparent to me, but that is not the same 'fell apart'.

          $1,400 tablet... I need to find a reason to use it :/

    Asus makes great tablets, I would have gotten one by now only if they made one with a mobile data plan, instead of wifi only. There are some people that aren't always near wifi hotspots and

    Stay away from Adarama I ordered a Nexus 7 on black Friday and I still haven't recieved it yet! I spoke to the customer service yesterday and all they said "we don't know where you're package is at the time but we guarantee you'll have it by Christmas". Never again will I order from them and I suggest if you want your Android device in a reasonable timely fashion don't order from Adarama! I wish you good luck if you order from them.

    Ordered one. Anxiously waiting to get it on my hands...
