ASUS is well known for being creative in their designs and this time it’s not different. With an inspiring name that comes from the Latin verb “to live”, that encourages you to play and work with it. It stand out from the crows thanks to the folding cover and keyboard that, surprisingly, doesn’t connect to the tablet. The ASUS VivoTab is slim and light and operates on Windows 8 Pro OS, it sports an 11.6-inch multi-touch HD display with built-in Super IPS+ technology that gives a 1366 x 768 HD resolution. With an 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 dual-core processor to run the latest software and applications smoothly, ASUS TruVivid technology further enhances image clarity by reducing display thickness, while its scratch-resistant Corning Fit glass with anti-fingerprint coating keeps the screen crystal clear.
Cheap and high quality combined
The VivoTab is one of the most inexpensive Windows 8 tablets on the market right now, but is also one of the best made. There's not much to it, really: the entire back shell is made of polycarbonate, with black and white being your two color choices. The tablet measures 9.7mm (0.38 inch) thick and weighs 580 grams. Like every other Atom-based tablet, the VivoTab Smart's 10.1-inch screen has a resolution of 1366 x 768. It has an IPS panel and 350 nits, that gives perfect vision no matter the conditions. It comes with a standalone Bluetooth keyboard a thin little thing that you can easily shove into a carry-on with really slim buttons that are surprisingly easy to type on. Under the best conditions, the tablet's 25Wh battery is rated for 8.5 hours of run time, with Intel’s Atom Z2760 processor, clocked at 1.8GHz, and Intel HD graphics and 2GB of RAM. With max read speeds of 83 MB/s, peak write rates of 35 MB/s and a boot-up time of 15 seconds or so.
