ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400C tablet review

11 April 2013
  • 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.

Asus VivoTab Smart Review

30 March 2013
  • 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.

ASUS VivoTab Smart Review

LAPTOP Magazine
15 February 2013
  • Summary: On the other hand, ASUS did cut some corners to achieve such an aggressive price. The design is plasticky, and you won't find a full-size USB port. And while the optional $129 TranSleeve Keyboard can come in handy, it's not as convenient as a dock that feels more secure in your lap.

Review Asus VivoTab Smart ME400C Tablet

8 February 2013
  • 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  • Cons: Fiddly micro interfaces, Hardware button with moderate feedback, Partly outdated performance for Windows 8, Matching cords and adapters for the micro interfaces.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.

Asus VivoTab Smart ME400 review

TechRadar UK
19 March 2013
  • Summary: The Windows 8 tablet to beat?
  • Pros: Excellent general specs, 8MP camera, full Windows 8, In terms of apps, Windows 8's Start screen is still the poor relation of the iPad . But the breadth of apps available in the Windows Store is getting better, and there are now plenty of apps from big names such as Amazon, AudioBoo and Dropbox. ...
  • Cons: Processor slow, Ports problematic, Could be brighter, But because of its lack of poke, this isn't that Holy Grail Windows 8 tablet we were hoping for – a tablet that can be used as a multi-purpose main PC. But it really is just the processor that is holding the ME400 back. But perhaps we're expec...
