    Exclamation Need help finding a 16GB model !!!

    I see that Amazon has the 32GB model but it's price fluctuates heavily in price and
    I only need 16GBs.

    Bestbuy seems to have them but the price seems way too high.

    [I'm in the US, by the way.]

    This would be my first Android tablet so any help would be appreciated.

    Also, are the 300's in short supply, especially the 16GB models?

    TIA

    You'll note that most of these are from 3rd party vendors (not actually from Amazon itself). A such, you are not as protected as much, than if you buy it directly from Amazon-- you'll usually be required to deal directly with that vendor, if there are problems with your device, instead of Amazon itself.

    One reason why I try to avoid non-amazon dealers, except for simple or inexpensive items. But that's just me, being overly cautious I suppose. YMMV.

    You could also try NewEgg or TigerDirect-- I've had pretty good luck with both of these. But again-- caution, as these also permit 3rd party vendors to sell on their site as well.

    Last but not least? If you're really open to a gamble, there's always Ebay ....

    Best Buy does have the 16GB TF300T in their local stores here in the Atlanta area and on their web site for $379.00 which is the normal selling price

    best buy has the 16 gig fo 379 and the 32 gig for 20 more dollars cost 399, spend the 20 more bucks and get the 32 gig verison.
    if you buy right from amazon its allwasy 399 or cheaper. last week amazon had the 32 gig for 380 and i called them up and they have me a ten dollar credit so i got the 32 gig for the price of the 16 gig unit

    Or just suck it up, skip 4 coffees / 3 bar drinks / 2 packs of smokes / 1 Blu-Ray / whatever and go for the 32gig version. I survived just fine on 16gb for the TF101, but if I ever wanted to put more than a few movies on it, I was near enough to my limit to make me worry.

    You can never be too rich, too thin, or have too much non-volatile storage.

    For $20.00, the additional 16Gb is a real steal.

    That said, I'd go with Best Buy. They're got a real easy return policy, so if you get a bum unit you can quickly and easily exchange it without having to wait for the mailman.

    Wow, thanks for all the responses.

    Truth is, I've had a new iPad since its release.

    I fell in love with ICS with the Galaxy Nexus and I just wanted a lower
    priced Android tablet to play with.

    I guess I was expecting a larger price difference for 16 vs 32gb, I was wrong.

    Apple gets away with charging 100 bucks for double storage and Asus, or dealers,
    make it 20 bucks. Something seems so wrong about that.

    I need a gadget fix and I know other cheaper tablets are coming but the Tegra 3 is nice
    and most other tablets will be sporting dual cores.

    I guess I can wait it out. Maybe...

    Why can't OS's just get along? Id love to have a dual boot tablet.

    Anyhow, if I have a moment of weakness, I'll be sure to post here!

    Everyone has been so helpful. Thank you.
