Pick Up the 32GB Transformer Pad From Amazon for the Same Price as Best Buy’s 16GB Version

Looking to score a deal? Best Buy has had the Asus Transformer Pad (review here) listed at $379.99 for the 16GB version. Thanks to a tipster, we now know that Amazon has the same tablet, but 32GB for the same exact price. If you’ve been looking to scoop up the T-Pad, now would be the time.

Cheers Brandon!

    Wow, an Asus tablet that’s actually in stock in the first week of release. Either they figure out how to run the sweat shops or nobody wants this.

    went into best buy today to handle both devices, prime and pad. Gotta say, i like the pad better: gripped better (ridges in the plastic), and other than a slightly miscolored display (franco.Kernel would fix that…) i think the screen looked as good as the Prime (which to my surprise was pretty bad and pixelated, considering some of the reviews i read)

    on a side note, i decided to hold a couple galaxy tab’s, just to get a feel….omg they sucked, and i haven’t felt such a laggy interface since my OG droid was running MIUI 😀

    You could always just get it from Walmart for the same price + $.97 cent shipping and you get 90 days to return so you don’t get stuck with something that turns out to be below your expectations.

      From Walmarts electronics return section
      GPS units, digital music players, e-tablets, e-readers and portable video players: Must be returned within 15 days of receipt.

      Good luck trying 90 days later

  • If you live in a part of the country with a Fry’s Electronics, they’ll price-match on-line prices. PLUS, they’re selling the 32GB version IN STORE right now.

    So you can walk off with a $379 T300 today — no need to wait for shipping. You will have to pay sales tax though. So if you have Amazon Prime, you may as well just make use of your 2-day free shipping.

    Of course, you could go into said BB and see (jokingly) if they are desparate enough to give you an extra discount due to this fact, you never know …

    • They only price match to physical stores.

        It’s up to the manager at that store. I am one.

    They should call it Worst Buy.

    I test drove this tablet in BB the other day for a couple hours-VERY nice tablet experience in my opinion.

    Which one is better, this or the new 10.1 TAB 2

      If I were in the market I would wait for the Transformer Infinity (Tf700) It will have the Tegra 3, which I’m sure will be tweaked for better performance, a 1800×1200 screen, and all the problems with the original transformer will be worked out.

      What killed this tablet for me was the quality. I went to BB to try it out and the backing felt really cheap, and the screen was obviously sub-par to both the OG Transformer and the Transformer Prime (w/o IPS on). I think the screen is supposed to be the same but it was very obvious that everything was much sharper on the other 2 tablets. I’m not usually a guy to worry about a screen and plastic build, but it solidified my reasoning to keep my Prime.

        thats gotta be the most annoying thing about android tablets. every ‘what should i get question’ involves an answer that says ‘wait for this’.

    IDK, I still say, A Tablet/Pad should not have a physical keyboard at all, maybe I’m just Old School, but why turn a Tablet into a Laptop…

    • MKader17

      There are many reason’s but if it’s not for you the tablet is still an amazing machine.

      Off the top of my head the keyboard provides a way to type something of decent length, is a nice “kickstand”, provides the ability to easily connect an external HD, has the ability to allow different versions of linux. (I know a guy that uses a 7″ netbook for linux all the time. he would have the best of both worlds for this with likely a better battery life.), its good at protecting your screen, is an external source of power, etc…

      The external keyboard is really the best accessory for any tablet ever imo.

    Not really a deal, Amazon’s price is the normal price for the 32GB version.

    • mustbepbs

      Haha. They should rename the article to: Best Buy robbing customers on overpriced Prime tablet, buy from Amazon instead

      • ljb

        i took my 16gig back to best buy today and got the 32 gig from office depot. Office Depot matched walmart at 379.

    • The normal price for the 32GB on Amazon is 399.

      • gallery69

        I stand corrected! Maybe I’ll buy one after all. $20 off, no tax and free shipping. Good deal.
