Asus EEE Pad Transformer + Keyboard + Case for $599 Shipped

Thu Aug 11, 2011 3:11 pm

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.718525&cm_sp=ProductSpotlight-_-718525-_-08112011
Saw this on the Newegg homepage. I'm thinking about returning my Acer Iconia to Best Buy and grabbing this for just $200 more. I know Geoff wasn't too happy with the keyboard, but it gets really good customer reviews. It would really come in handy for when I go back to school in a few weeks. I also read something about the 3.2 update bringing Netflix support. I'm sure I could get it running anyway, but I'm more comfortable with official support. Besides all that, I really like the UI and it seems a TAD faster/smoother than the Acer (when I used it in store last time I was at BB).

Anyway, thought I should share!

Just a heads up, rumor has it that there's a second generation EEE Transformer coming out in September/October, so that's probably part of the reason for the sale.

Also noteworthy that this same exact model (TF101-B1) selling for $599 on newegg sells for $499 at microcenter ( http://www.microcenter.com/single_produ ... id=0361290 )

$499 is how much Newegg is asking for that model as well. The OP posted one with the Docking Station with Keyboard and Built-in Battery for Transformer Tablet ($149.99) and an ASUS Sleeve for Transformer ($39.99).
Probably PUI. Definitely an كافر

Fyi, they don't really advertise it, but the same combo deal is available with the 16gb model for $100 less. Just ordered mine yesterday.
