Looking for a high-end Galaxy Note tablet that doesn't cost over seven hundred freakin' dollars? Then head over to Newegg, where the slightly older and slightly smaller Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is on sale in refurbished form. You can pick up a 16GB version of the tablet for $374.99, a full $175 off the original retail price, or a 32GB version for $404.99, a whopping $195 off.
Strangely, Newegg has set different prices for different colors: the $374.99 16GB tablet is white, and you'll have to pay an extra five bucks for the black version (also refurbished). Newegg flips it around for the 32GB model: the black version is $404.99, while the white version is $429.99. Perhaps the store is adjusting for its inventory. In any case, the alternate colors are still a good deal compared to their retail counterparts, though there are certainly a few non-Samsung alternatives like the Transformer Pad Infinity TF701T.
The 2014 Edition features a 2560x1600 LCD screen with the usual stylus and Wacom digitizer, a 1.9Ghz Exynos processor, an impressive 3GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, and a MicroSD card slot. At the moment it's running Android 4.3 with Samsung's TouchWiz skin. Newegg is offering free standard shipping on all four models, but as with all refurbished items, stock is probably limited. Get in an order quickly if you want one.
