Most looking for a great deal on an ASUS-manufactured Android slate will turn to the Nexus 7, but if you act within the next 14 hours you can upgrade your act without spending much more than you would for the Google-branded device. As Tech.Woot’s deal of the day, the ASUS Transformer Pad TF300 can be yours for as low as $249.99 for the 16GB model. The 32GB model isn’t much pricier at $279.99.

Woot was also offering a combo deal that included that ASUS keyboard dock, but it appears as though the option is now sold out. What you get is a refurbished version of the quad-core Tegra 3-powered tablet with a 10.1-inch display, 8MP camera, and ability to combine with the previously mentioned docking station for a more laptop-esque experience. The Transformer Pad ships with Android 4.0 out of the box, but a Jelly Bean update has been made available.

Act quick if you’re looking to snag the spiritual big brother to the Nexus 7 for a very similar price. I’m sure more than a few Android fans wouldn’t mind seeing this bad boy as a gift under the Christmas tree, either.
