Deal: Woot has the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Starting at $344

Daily deal aficionado, Woot, is currently hosting what it believes is the ultimate Samsung Galaxy tablet blowout. I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with their mindset, since the tablet lineup includes the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), which was Samsung’s flagship tablet from September of last year up until the NotePRO lineup was introduced at CES. We’re talking S Pen, an Octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a gorgeous 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. This is a top-of-the-line tablet, my friends.

Woot has both 16GB and 32GB versions available, also in white or black. The 16GB model can be grabbed for $344.99, while the 32GB version will run you $384.99. If you need something to compare to, we can look to Amazon, which is selling the 16GB and 32GB models at $499 and $549, respectively.  (more…)
