Asus MeMO pad 301 quad-core Android tablet, from £238

Enter the code Nvidia 5 at checkout when you purchase the Asus MeMO Pad 301 10.1in tablet to get a five percent discount which drops the price of the device to a mere £238 (down from £250).

The tablet shares some specification with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer and one wonders whether Asus didn’t simply rebadge the former, which was launched back in 2011 as the first quad-core tablet on the market.

The MeMo Pad comes with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 (T30L) SoC clocked at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, HDMI, a 10.1in IPS display with a 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution with Gorila Glass 2, Sonic Master technology, mini HDMI out, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.2-megapixel front facing one, a microSD card slot, Android 4.1 Jelly bean Asus WebStorage and nearly nine hours battery life.

Note that PC World is also giving out a free three-month subscription to the Times, one which is worth a whopping £55.

The Memo Pad has essentially the same hardware as the Google Nexus 7 but with a bigger screen, an additional camera, more expansion/connectivity options but a much higher price tag.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
