Very good tablet.
5 August 2014
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: 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: - the tablet worked right out of the box - setup was easy - the performance isn't the speediest, but it's fast enough for a non-power user (if you're a Power-user buy a power-tablet) - Who cares about Apps?! It's a Windows 8.1 PC, so if there isn't an App (Yelp for example) just go to webpage. I can access my Amazon Prime streaming this way. I saw some comments regarding trouble updating to Windows 8.1 and/or installing MS Office.
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 perfectly well.
Summary: I was sketchy about buying a full windows powered tablet at first. I figured such an advanced os running on tablet would be laggy and the slow but this thing runs just as good as my desktop. It's very fast and responsive. I also own a Galaxy tab as well as several ipads and this tablet is by far my favorite!
