Staples Tablet Clearance for November 2015. IN STORE ONLY. YMMV.

No Demo versions will be listed this time around. I purchased three and none has a OS and none had one downloadable. If a store offers to sell you one and it scans as Demo, DO NOT purchase it.

306704 Kindle Fire 7 HD 8GB 99.50
1376089 Kindle Fire 6 HD 8GB 69.50
1103528 Toshiba Encore 2 99.50
306702 Kindle Fire HDX 16GB 99.50
75583 Samsung Tab 3 10.1 149.50
1415572 Asus 10 in 99.50
213890 Samsung Tab 3 8 in 129.50
1012812 Samsung Tab 4 10 199.50
1279269 Samsung Tab S 10.5 299.50

Thanks Pru which tablets didn't have the OS is it possible for you to recover them? I know the Surface Pro and iPad I've gotten had to be wipe I used a windows 10 install for the surface and used DFU mode for the iPad though I don't know why but the serial for the apple demo is non-existent my macbook shows it has none though its the full functioning iPad after restoring.

The Samsungs and Amazon HDs will not. The MS, Apple, Asus, Amazon HDX will. Be careful of the Windows tablets that were upgraded to Win10 as their recovery partition have been wiped out and windows.old is past 30 days and thus does not function.

On the HD's Pru I found these instructions for the Demos have you attempted this yet, I hate to hear that you purchased units that can't be restored.

in the search bar type ;demo
(semicolon, followed by the word 'demo' with no spaces)

this command will bring up a menu... for a full reset to factory mode choose option 'Resell'

it takes a minute or two while wiping the demo content, then it reboots.

Congrats! You now have an Un-Demo'd Kindle Fire!

It works on the HDX, but not the HD. I have the cables that send them into Tech mode.

How would someone purchase these? Are they on a clearance table somewhere or in with all the others. I'm a little confused.

I've got a crappy Dell XPS 9343 for 581 after coupon and taxes in my cart. Only 4GB and 128GB SSD. Worth it?

do you think laptop clearance prices will drop more before Christmas, or that there will be a new $off clearance laptop coupon this month? thanks!

The Clearance computers are already out there (getting managers to release them is an issue). Store managers are hiding them to protect margins until January. Problem will that by the time they finally come out of hiding many will be nearly a year old. As to a coupon coming out, the trade-in program will probably come out and be around until January.

Thanks OP! I just picked up 1279269 Samsung Tablet S 10.5 for $199 and used the $50 off clearance tablets coupon. Paid $162 with CA tax.

I actually checked 2 other staples last week. They both had them on display but wouldnt sell them to me.
