In addition, the Note 10.1 has also been discounted by $70, going at $479.99 for the 16 GB unit, and $529.99 for the 32 GB version.Amazon just discounted the PRO tablet line of Samsung heavily, with $50-$100, depending on the model. The smallest Galaxy Tab PRO 8.4 has been cut to $349.99, down from $399.99, making it a pretty good deal for such a slim and light tablet, which on top of that has a 2560x1600 pixels display with
Not bad if you've been eyeing one of those, as most people were lamenting the launch price tag, especially for the big, 12" Tabs. Alternatively, Samsung might be clearing up the way for the rumored 8" and 10" Tab S slates with high-res Super AMOLED displays. Now these are likely to cost quite a bunch for sure.

I still can't justified myself to spend that kind of money for a tablet when I can just get a laptop XD I have a smartphone that basically does what a tablet does. Nevertheless, if I travel often I will definitely get a tablet in a heartbeat.

With only 2Gb Ram its insufficient to run Windows 8.1. Atom CPU while getting better is still not quite there yet. Is like buying a Netbook PC so do have the right expectation. I will evaluate it again when Intel launch the Cherry Trail 14nm node CPU. Hopefully they will have at least 4GB ram by then.

"Samsung's Tab PRO and Note PRO slates are the poster kids for the finest that the Android tablet industry cam muster, given their specs and screen resolution." LOL. Nice joke you got there. Hardware is nothing without software, and when the PRO line's software stop being a beta pre-production junk, then yes, these tablets -might- make it to the big boys club.

How is the SW beta pre-production junk? That makes ZERO sense. It's the same ANDROID OS, with the same Samsung overlay.. Bought this for my Son for his birthday.. in short. BEST ANDROID TABLET EVER! (the 8.4 pro). It's amazing to use and we really enjoy how light it is.

Samsung will have to cut the prices a lot more to move these. They were priced beyond what iPads cost and that is just crazy, even with the better specs. I would anticipate 2-3 rounds of price cuts, starting with this one.
