This is deal I found on expansy, not sure if it's legit or a good deal.
Ok deal. The price was about the same a year ago.
For the 2012 model. I don't recall seeing the 2013 model for this price before. I could be wrong.
You are right. The 2013 16GB wifi has hung around the $220 mark for a long time. This is the cheapest the 2013 models have been afaik.
I paid $250 almost a year ago at Bing Lee for the 32gb WiFi for my brother. Better off saving your $ and putting it towards a nexus 9 if you can.
or waiting for the n7 to drop in price
considering one from chromecasting the screen, for foxtel go
Can you definitely chromecast from the 2013 model? Can you chromecast from the 2012 model?
should be both…. have to check the listing!
I would, but the new models aren't 7 inch. Can't hold them in one hand.
You can mirror your screen via chromecast on the 2013 model, if that's what you are asking. Also consider that it could be laggy depending on the task you are using the tablet to perform and the performance will vary depending on your home network set up.
If you are really looking for a replacement for a nexus 7 where one handed use and portability matter, the nvidia shield or galaxy tab s could be a better option for you. The N7 2013 model is still an excellent tab, and runs smooth on kitkat, hopefully lollipop improves performance
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/161801 here. You don't need to look around. Most of those lowest possible prices would have been posted here thanks to our fellow ozbargainers.
And here in January 2014 https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/131220
True. Also Shopping Express had the 2013 16GB model twice for $199 delivered one their super one hour 30 units only or something like that. Dick Smith had similar twice too. I missed out both times, and still rocking a 2012 model which is still going strong, maybe even better after a possible Android L update shortly, maybe not.
At this rate I may as well wait for the Nexus 9 by HTC as I like their phones, as long as it's light and thin.
Expansys are supposed to drop the price to $213 later today.
So it might pay to wait a few hours.
How much is Nexus 9 going to be though? Trying to decide if I should get this, as it's a good price or hold out…..decisions decisions.
Nexus 9 16GB WiFi US$399 (announced) AU$454 (estimated)
Nexus 9 32GB WiFi US$479 (announced) AU$545 (estimated)
Nexus 9 32GB LTE US$599 (announced) AU$681 (estimated)

Getting closer and closer to Apple price range.
Wow really? Ok well I'm gonna get one of these then.
Those estimations are based on current exchange rates excluding gst, so could be a bit higher than they're suggesting.
These aren't refurbed are they?

I guess that probably means that they are refurbished ( not by Asus ) and maybe not brand new. I want a brand spanker.
They are brand new so why do you claim they are refurbished?
Hindsight is a beautiful thing. Good to be sure. And as you can see from the follow up comments below, some other interested people were also concerned and not happy buying even New without Asus Australian Warranty. Great tablet, but there have been many faulty units reported, especially with OTA updates, and me for one want this tablet running on all future updates.
Do any B&M stores sell this still for a pricematch?
The 32GB is now available for $213.15 + Delivery. Props to sauron256
Can someone confirm that these a Re-firbs and not brand new with 12 months standard Asus Warranty?
I really want a New one.
There's nothing on the product page to suggest that they are refurbs or used. I too had this concern.
I have bought it with paypal (buyer protection) and taken a screenshot of the product page if anything untoward should happen.
I think they're new, just grey import so Expansys offers the warranty. It's illegal to sell refurbished in AUS without stating it.
Are they technically in AUS though?
I guess you can have an company setup in Australia as a foreign company for advertising and promoting your oeverseas products but have all sales go to its company setup in another country. That should still meet the definition of direct imports to get away without paying GST etc?
I think that they are new as is not stated as B-Stock.
Thanks for the replies guys. I did read as much beforehand, the between 3-12 month warranty bit sounded odd. What happens from new to 3 months? So still a little bit grey in my book, but great price. I am a bit disappointed with what the N6 and N9 offer for the money, makes N5 and these N7 gen2 seem even better buying.
It's in their T&Cs.
Bought two, thanks OP.
At $232.15 shipped for 32GB Wifi, this is a good price, so adding to my Nexus 7 collection. If you're new to the Nexus 7, don't expect stunning latest generation response, but I like the form factor/size, and getting the latest Nexus updates is good. For those wondering, despite Google announcing the latest version of Android today, the Android 5.0 Lollipop factory images haven't been posted by Google yet, so not known whether Nexus 7 2013 will receive the Lollipop update, but most expect that this will be the case.
Tried to call Expansys to clarify if this unit is new with Asus Australia warranty or not, no answer on their advertised phone number.
Went ahead and placed order, then replied to the order confirmation saying that my order was based on the Asus Australia warranty.
Despite the discussion here, I couldn't find any information on the Expansys website to indicate that it wouldn't be a new unit with full manufacturers warranty.
According to the website the offer appears to finish at 10am Australian Eastern Daylight Savings time Friday, provided enough stock remains I guess.
*** Heard back from Expansys ***
The unit is NEW, but it is Hong Kong stock, so no Asus Australian warranty. Details per website as discussed above.
I've cancelled my order, and will consider what to do without the warranty. While my experience has been that the refurbs NEED the Asus warranty (2 problems out of 3 units), the new units may be ok, especially if your plan is to unlock them.
Ok, Android 5 Factory Images not for a couple of weeks (link above), but the Developer Images are updated which includes the Nexus 7 2013.
Also, 5 Developer gives the much requested 'English (Australia)' locale option.
And to clarify from earlier, Nexus 7 2012 AND 2013 will receive the Android 5 Factory Image when released in November.
I saw a few comments on here about refurb etc - These are All NEW 2013 stock, 16GB & 32GB Wifi and 32GB LTE. We always state if its a refurb we are selling and the price will usually reflect that.
Warranty is 12 months with us. It is a fantastic little tablet at a very very good price.
The price is now slightly lower than the OP and we will try and keep it that way.
Given it is an AU website, will we get an Australian invoice with GST and ABN?
I'd like to claim for salary sacrifice so need those details.
Receipt shows GST $0 and no ABN.
Hard to claim back on something you aren't paying.
Thanks so much Where's_That_Cake!
Are they allowed to do that being an AU website? I guess that changes the calculation dramatically for me. Might as well go for the N9…
You can preorder the N9 direct from amazon. $407.97 US for 16gb version with cheapest postage option. Don't know how that'll compare with Australia's price or when we'll even get the N9.
If you buy from Amazon is the same thing. No GST as you are buying from overseas.
The invoice from Expansis came from "Expansis Asia" (I bought one also thinking to claim back the gst) and looks like their company is registered in Hong Kong (based on their website).
@rebusque: Mine shipped from Hong Kong.
@Gav: mine shipped from Australia. Read your shipping notification as well. Pretty sure it says from Aus warehouse.
@Where's_That_Cake: maybe it varies based on product. My 32gb is definitely coming from hk.
@Gav: maybe, I ordered a 32gb and a 16gb.
Mine arrived today. Both seem to be AU stock. Sealed packages with the official ASUS security seals and both had Australian plugs in the boxes. Very pleased.
Trying to track down genuine cases now.
I get 8.5 hours on Android KitKat. Anyone know the battery life on Android Lollipop?
Lollipops take a lot longer to eat than a KitKat. :) It's not general availability yet, so benchmarks to come.
