If you're looking for a good deal on the WiFi version, eBay has a refurbished model for just $229.99. That's almost $300 off the original 2012 price, and still a solid $170 off of the retail price (even for a refurbished model).
The Galaxy Note 10.1's biggest plus is the Wacom-powered digitizer and stylus (S-pen) combo that comes standard with all members of the Note family. Read More
