Ideal for everyday use, and Web browsing, e-mail, access to social networks, photos and video playback, but not suitable for heavier tasks, such as editing, where the limits...

ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 10.1 inch Windows 8 Tablet Review
6 May 2013
Summary: The ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 Tablet is running Windows 8, this gives the ASUS VivoTab Smart a great selection of applications. Actually it is pretty much anything will run in a Windows environment.
Summary: Well, there you have it. I think the VivoTab Smart may be the first serious Windows 8-powered competitor to Android- and iOS-based tablets.
No, really. It's priced competitively. It's as thin and light as the best of 'em.
Asus VivoTab Smart – the best of Transformer coupled with Intel and Windows 8
28 April 2013
Conclusion: The biggest advantage the VivoTab has over the competition is that even though it’s got a good quality build and top of the line hardware inside (well, if you don’t count the Surface Pro with its Core i5 CPU… and 3 hour battery life), it is still very cheap – you can get it for only $499, the same...
Excerpt: The VivoTab Smart is a Windows tablet that seems to offer it all. This is a full unhindered Windows 8 device that’s somehow managed to come in both lighter and cheaper than its iPad equivalent plus it’ll let you run all your desktop apps and has a battery that lasts a full working day.
Pros: Full Windows 8 OS lightweight design 7-hour battery life.
Cons: Netbook level performance only 33GB usable storage.
Conclusion: Compared to the competition, the Asus VivoTab Smart, at $500, is on the inexpensive side for Windows 8 tablets. That’s a very un-netbook-like price, though. And if you’re going to use the tablet for real work, you’ll need to shell out another $100 for the keyboard and cover.
Pros: Light, comfortable to hold, solid build, Less expensive than the competition, Runs full Windows 8 and older programs, Long battery life
Cons: No full USB input port, Underpowered Atom processor, Cameras unimpressive
Summary: ASUS' VivoTab Smart has some things going for it. It features a crisp display, long battery life and the ability to run both modern-style Windows 8 apps and traditional desktop apps for the same price as the more limited Micorsoft Surface with Windows RT.
Summary: The Asus VivoTab Smart is slim and portable, has good screen colours and runs on the full version of Windows 8, letting you install any software you want. Its Atom processor won't let you tackle intense tasks like photo editing without complaining, but it'll handle the day-to-day essentials...
Pros: Slim, portable design; Runs full-fat Windows 8; Affordable price; Decent screen colours; Good performance for the price.
Summary: The compatible one. No matter whether iOS, Android or Windows RT, all operating systems have their quirks when it comes to the compatibility with the standard Windows 7 or Windows 8 versions. Asus' VivoTab Smart might eliminate these restrictions owing to Intel's Atom CPU and Windows 8.
Pros: Bright, viewing angle stable and high-contrast screen, Good touch features with reliable feedback, Good battery life, Far-reaching Windows compatibility, Windows 8 on a tablet. That works quite well and is as functional as a Swiss pocketknife.
Cons: Fiddly micro interfaces, Hardware button with moderate feedback, Partly outdated performance for Windows 8, Matching cords and adapters for the micro interfaces. Also, the graphics solution for Windows 8 could have a bit more power and above all a better compatibility.
