Woot.com is running an Asus sale through July 6th with a couple notable items. They’ve got the top-end Nexus 7 tablet from 2013 on sale for $239 and the travel-friendly Transformer Book T100 for $189.
The Google Nexus tablet is tempting — it’ll connect to Verizon’s wireless network. Not sure about other providers like T-Mobile and AT&T. You’ll be able to run Google’s latest Android OS immediately. I’ve got a tired 2012 model that has been slowing down lately. I don’t really need the LTE, but it’s nice to know it’s there. Not sure yet if I’ll push the BUY button or sit on the sidelines waiting for a WiFi-only model.
The Transformer Book T100 is equally tempting. I normally travel with a Chromebook, but running full-on Windows apps would be nice. Add in the 64GB of storage and the ability to pop it into tablet mode and my wallet is very nearly out. There’s even a red option. (But the white one appears to have the better specs.)
Note that all these devices are non-new, factory reconditioned.
