Deal: £170 Asus Transformer TF101 with docking station

The first generation Asus Transformer TF101 hybrid tablet/laptop can be purchased from H&G Limited from eBay for £170, a price that includes free delivery and 170 Nectar points.

This tablet, which doubles as a laptop thanks to a nifty keyboard docking station, comes with a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz. It originally ran on Android 3.2 Honeycomb but can be updated to Android 4.0 ICS.

Other salient features of the Eee Pad Transformer include Polaris Office mobile productivity suite, a 10.1in IPS display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, a mini HDMI port, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing 1.2-megapixel one, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage and SRS premium sound technology.

As for the keyboard docking station, it offers two USB ports, a SD card reader (which in theory can be used in conjunction with the microSD one), an island style keyboard, another battery that can power the laptop for up to 16 hours (compared to just 10 hours on the laptop).
