Good grief, but the people who run eBay's Daily Deals portal really love their Android tablets. After discounts on Nexuses for the last couple of weeks, today we get one of ASUS' flagship tablets at a significant discount. A refurbished Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T (the Tegra 3 model from 2012) is going for just $289.99 with free shipping. That's $210 off the current retail price.
The bad news is that it's a refurbished tablet. The good news is that shipping is free... at least if you live in the lower 48 states. The seller doesn't ship to Alaska or Hawaii, or anywhere else for that matter - sorry, international readers. There is no sales tax charged unless your order is shipped to Florida.
The TF700T is a little long in the tooth thanks to a Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM, but the 1080P screen will beat just about any Android tablet that isn't a Nexus 10. Over at Amazon the cheapest price for a new 32GB model is $444, while TigerDirect has it for $400, so you're still getting a significant discount. That said, those who have to have the latest and greatest are probably waiting for the shiny new Infinity, complete with a Tegra 4 processor and an even denser 2560x1600 screen. ASUS seems to be taking their sweet time with the new model.
As always, eBay's Daily Deals tend to expire after one day or when the pre-set stock runs out. If you want one, put your order in as soon as you can.
