The biggest reason to turn down Samsung's Pro line of tablets is easily the exorbitant pricing. $750 for a tablet? Seriously, Sammy? Unsurprisingly, the various models have quickly fallen to some dramatic discounts, none more so than the top-of-the-line Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. BuyDig's eBay seller account has a refurbished 32GB model going for $449.99. That's $200 off the Amazon price (and technically $300 off retail), and $50 cheaper than we saw earlier this month.
As with most of these promoted eBay deals, standard shipping is free, at least if you live in the United States. Those of you who live outside of New York or New Jersey won't have to pay sales tax, either. Unlike a lot of eBay sales, BuyDig is shipping to a wide selection of international locations for a surcharge, including Canada, the UK, Germany, India, Australia, China, and Japan. If you're worried about the refurbished status, the tablet comes with a 90-day warranty.
With a massive 12.2-inch screen and a resolution of 2560x1600, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is technically Samsung's flagship tablet. However, spec hounds will probably want to consider the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 - while the screen is smaller and doesn't include a stylus, it uses a Super AMOLED panel just like Samsung's smartphones. According to Cameron Summerson, it's the best tablet you can buy right now, and it's only $50 more for a new 16GB version. The rest of the internal specs are comparable.
If you want a Galaxy Note Pro, hurry up. These deals tend to go quickly, and they've already sold more than two hundred.
