£150 Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet: How low will it go?

StudentComputers is selling the Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet (known as the TF101) for £150 including free delivery.

This is a refurbished product which was released in 2011, comes with a 6-months warranty and has been updated to Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

It comes with a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 10.1in 1,280 x 800 IPS display covered with Gorilla glass, Bluetooth, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front facing 1.2-megapixel one, a mini-HDMI port and up to 10 hours battery life.

The device is not as thin as the competition at 13mm but it comes with the ability to transform into an ultra-portable tablet thanks to an optional keyboard docking station that almost doubles the battery life while adding two USB port, a SD card slot and a touchpad.

Some might argue that the Google Nexus 7 could be a better purchase but there are three factors which play in favour of the Eee Pad Transformer.

Some users prefer a bigger screen rather than a small one, the Transformer has a rear camera, an expandable internal storage capacity and the ability to attach a docking station.
