Asus Nexus 7 Tablet 32GB Wi-Fi $269, 3G $309 Delivered @ Bing Lee
Price match with OW and get further 5% off. I personally would buy from Bing Lee as they dropped the price to as lowest as possible in first place.
$40 cheaper than the Play store, plus free shipping = winner
Good deal to post but if you can get it cheaper by OW why not.
yeah, but expect some store to pull the below cost price bs
Anyone can confirm in-store stock from OW for the 3G version? Stock seems to be online only for now. So, can't price match the 3G version.
you can call up their 1800-OFFICE number and they can price match it over the phone for you.
DSE has it for the same price, though not free shipping: http://dicksmith.com.au/product/XC8139/asus-google-nexus-7-q...
their 3G price is $349 though, and you can usually negotiate price instore at binglee
maybe well they've rarely treated me "like family" at Bing-lee they do tend to give better discounts on full priced stock. But they tend not try and match or beat items that have already been heavily discounted by a competitor.
over $250- so should be free shipping.
Just checked with OW its online only
OW price match online prices as well. they include the shipping charges. It is in there price match policy.
this depends on your local ow store… some of em don't do online price matching and some of em don't even like to do price matching and will try and wiggle their way out of it. there's a thread in forums about it.
Not available in store. Online only and only available for back order.
Well played Bing Lee!
Is Nexus 7.7 just around the corner? Might wait if that is the case.
Slated for May release. I'm waiting to pay RRP on new model.
So this was the first I'd heard of nexus 7.7 Did some research, and it's rumoured to be announced at the event on 15-17th of May. I doubt you'll actually be able to get it until June at the earliest. So…I'm still going to wait.
Dick smith has the $20 cash back if paying by paypal. So it covers the postage and that ends up $259 for the 32GB wifi version
Actually I just verified, its free shipping for over $250, hence it turns out to be $249 delivered with Paypal cashback.
Actually, you are both talking about the 16GB Nexus 7 for $269. DSE has the 32GB as per the OP at $299. So with Paypal cashback and free shipping you are paying $279.
great price for a great device.
For anyone looking for the link to the 3G model: http://www.binglee.com.au/asus-asus-1b005a-nexus-7-tablet-32...
Pretty Awesome price for a pretty awesome device but I'm holding out until May/June for the next model.
Though at that price.. :)
Does BingLee has any sort of valid "welcome" discount codes?
If you could make phone calls I would be sold. But alas I'll have to wait for FonePad.
Interested in one of these for my mother-in-law… currently she just uses our ipad2 to look at Pinterest so I don't think she necessarily needs an iOS device. Would this (and Android) be fine for someone not tech savvy?
I would always recommend iOS for non tech savvy people. Android has lots of advantages, but none really benefit non-geeky people. Stick with what she's use to. Unless you like the idea of spending time with the in laws? :P
I found android to be just as easy as iOS unless you want to "Root" or "Flash a Rom".
I mean how hard can it be to browse, listen to music, read a book or look at pinterest on an android device.
I really recommend this tablet, its a good tablet and the price is great
As much as some people hate iTunes it makes managing media much easier for the average Joe. Also makes backing up and restoring much simpler. Something playing up on the device? Right click, back up, select restore. Bam, identical.
No. Even restrictions within iTunes itself is so painful - for example: If you have an entire collection of MP3's you've collected over the years with the filename as the song name - only to find that iTunes does NOT allow you to sort by the file name nor the provision to convert the filename to ID3 tag..
Not only that - have you tried to "carry" your iTunes collection from one computer to another and try to keep the association with your devices and music collection that you apparently own?
Its a prohibiting product and really is the work of the devil.
Just use a free tool like this to fill in the ID3 tags from the MP3 filenames http://massid3lib.sourceforge.net/
Or use a media player like 'MediaMonkey' which has some seriously epic built in tagging features as well as the ability to sync music to iDevices.
Again, you are using another 3rd party tool to make up the deficiencies of the original iTunes. Hence why I stand by my claims of iTunes being a bad product.
"If you have an entire collection of MP3's you've collected over the years with the filename as the song name…"
I stopped reading there. If you don't have proper ID3 tags then that's your own fault for sourcing your music from stupid places. Either rip your own, use online stores or download proper scene releases.
"have you tried to "carry" your iTunes collection from one computer to another "
Yep, many times, across reformats, new PCs, new Macs, all with little hassle. All you have to do is open the xml file and do a find-and-replace. Is that too tricky for you?
"keep the association with your devices and music collection that you apparently own"
iTunes store music hasn't had DRM for years, and if you do happen to have old DRMed music, all you have to do is select "deauthorize all devices" and then reauthorize the active ones. Is that too tricky too?
I use mediamonkey for my own collection. The auto fill-in tags feature is fucking incredible. It's incredible how many features this app has.
Then for sharing out to devices I use subsonic server
"Either rip your own, use online stores or download proper scene releases."
Only within the last 4 years. MP3's have been around for over 15 years and if you have a collection extending back from there, then you will have to re-rip or replace everything from there. Not only that, CDDB will only detect known albums - compilations, rare tracks, non-English ones have issues trying to get ID3 information for - even by todays standards.
"All you have to do is open the xml file and do a find-and-replace. Is that too tricky for you?"
Oh.. the XML file? oh.. whats that? Thats what you claim the Average Joe can do? I guarantee that the "Average Joe" wouldnt even know what a File Extension is.
