The Asus Transformer Pad TF701T has hit a new low, but it this case, that's a good thing. Shoppers can now find this 10-inch tablet on Amazon marked down to a very reasonable $279.99. It will still set buyers back $534.99 to get this thing with the dock included, but that has always been an optional add-on (Update: much cheaper - about $415 - if you buy the dock separately). The TF701T holds its own even without the transformer part of its name, as it packs an attractive 2560 by 1600 display, Tegra 4, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, and, after a recent update, Android 4.4.2.

Regardless of how much life this thing officially has left, it's already received support from the CyanogenMod project. This leaves tinkerers with an impressive piece of hardware to have their way with long after the OTAs stop coming down.

While you think about making the purchase, I'll just place an Amazon link here for your convenience. You know, to help with the thinking.
