Summary: for a tablet, it is a bit oversize, using it without a keyboard is a little cumbersome, GPS is surprisingly good, HDMI video is high quality and clear. good substitute for a notebook if equipped with the optional keyboard.
Summary: `Small and tight a lot of update need it to make it windows 8.1 have patience it worth the time and effort, small yes I need a little bigger screen but the price goes up a lot it comes with no keyboard you don't really need it, if not buy a Bluetooth keyboard, its micro usb, nice feel good battery and both windows rt and windows desktop, nice ...
Summary: the tablet was purchased for a co-worker, but I have asked him on several occasions how does it work and he told me that he is very happy, that the battery life is very good, and the performance has been excellent.
Summary: The Vivotab might be a inexpensive Windows 8 tablet, but I believe it's one of the best-made. It has a NFC sensor built into the back, though that's not exactly a rare feature, it's something you're more likely to find on higher-end tablets than on inexpensive ones. The one problem I find is not to having a full-size USB port. Like every other Atom-based tablet, the 10.1-inch screen has a resolution of 1,366 x 768. It's also an IPS panel.
Summary: Last December 2013 I bought my ASSUS Vivo Book S400CA at Amazon US. The computer arrived fine and as I was told it came with Windows 8. One month after I got it, I did the upgrade to windows 8.1. After two months the computer did not allow me to shut down. Every time I wanted to shut down the PC I got a blue screen and an error message. The only way to shut down the computer was to “suspend it”. During the past 4 months the problems have been increasing.
Summary: Great tablet. Working exactly how I needed it to. I only with I had known that if you want to use it while charging, nothing else can be plugged in. Kind of a pain to plug/unplug but other then that...running great.
I followed the advice and did all the updates, and I'm thrilled

Summary: I didn't even really try to fool with it during the update process, which took me two days all in all. Some update screens would sit so long I thought the thing was frozen but it eventually got there. Did all the updates for Win 8 and then when the 8.1 update didn't show in Windows Update I read some more and found I had to go to the 'store' for that, it worked fine. Did the ASUS Live Updates including BIOS.
Summary: Really what I'd say is that this tablet didn't really come into its own until Win 8.1. Once I got the Win 8.1 upgrade, it because a very pleasant user experience. And I can't blame the device for that (Microsoft!!!!!). I knocked off one star due to the charging issues I had with the first unit. I would plug it in (to the factory charger) and it would charge for a while, then display "Plugged in, not charging".
