- Asus Transformer Book Flip Laptop $299
Asus 15.6-inch Transformer Book Flip TP500LA Signature Edition Laptop for $299 today.
It has a 15.6-inch touchscreen display, Intel Core i3-4030U 1.9GHz processor, 4GB memory, 500GB hard drive, memory card reader, USB3.0 port, 3-cell battery, Wifi b/g/n, and Windows 8.1.
This convertible laptop/tablet usually sells for around $500, and it has great reviews.
This is the iPad Mini 2, not the newer iPad Mini 3.
The only considerable difference between the Mini 2 and the Mini 3 is the Touch ID feature, which lets you unlock your iPad with your fingerprint rather than keying in a code.
Both iPad Mini generations have the same processor, and similar cameras, battery life, and size.
Here is a comparison chart between the iPad Mini 2 and 3.
In our opinion, save a hundred dollars by getting the iPad Mini 2 over the Mini 3.
Compared to the iPad Mini 1 however, the Mini 2 is a huge improvement.
The processor is twice as fast on the Mini 2, making it a powerful gaming and productivity platform.
If you really want the iPad Mini 1, it is available at MicroCenter stores for $200 (in-store only, not online).
However the iPad Mini 2 with twice the CPU power for $50 more is a better value.
