Update 2: Sale prices over for now. We will update with new sale prices as soon as possible!
Update: Cheapest price even lower. Now $159 US for the Z580C and $249 for the Z580CA. Better to buy now because this price drop WILL NOT LAST LONG.
If you’ve been holding off on buying a ZenPad S 8.0 in the US, now might be your best chance. It’s not a major deal, but it is a sale price and this is the cheapest price we’ve seen for the Z580CA and Z580C models. You can get the hero model Z580CA for $249 US and the Z580C for $159 US. Every dollar counts when it comes to deals and both these tablets were very cheap to begin with. I don’t expect to see cheaper prices any time soon. No word on how long these sale prices will last.
Amazon also has the official Asus TriCover available which sells for $17.99 US. The Z Stylus is available to order at a price of $29 and will ship soon according to the Amazon listing. There are some third party sellers that are selling the Z Stylus but at an inflated price. At this point it’s worth waiting for the Amazon one.
Hard to decide which model to get? Both have the terrific build quality. Both can get the job done in terms of specs, but the Z580CA is a step, a big step up in terms of power. Do you need that extra RAM and power? Also the Z580CA has stylus support whereas the Z580C does not. We have a number of articles you can reference if you are unsure what to do.
