Sears isn't the first place you would think of to purchase the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300
tablet. The device, which has recently been updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
, is available from the department store with a promotion. Those purchasing the tablet from Sears will receive a free keyboard dock
that would probably cost you $100 to $150 elsewhere. The idea of the portable QWERTY is to turn your tablet into a laptop computer and allow you to type quickly and with more accuracy.Sears has priced the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 for $399.99
which, as we said, includes the keyboard dock. If you were going out to purchase this model, is there a reason to pay the same price elsewhere to buy it without the keyboard? If you're worried about what your technologically-minded friends will say when they hear you bought a tablet from a mall based department store, don't fret. That will be our little secret.
