Summary: It's good but there are pros and cons , pro is the the price through Amazon was good and battery life is really good. Cons it glitches from time to time. So over all I'm content , just not blow. Away.
Summary: Any reviewer who calls the the Vivotab the best computer ever is surely exaggerating, but it is a good computer, and I certainly like mine. It is a great looking device, thin, metallic, and light. It always makes me happy to look at, and it functions alright. I bought this device because I truly wanted a hybrid computer. Mostly I use it as a notebook, but if I need to stand up and speak and hold my computer at the same time, I can use this device as a tablet.
Summary: Well I did a lot of research before buying this tablet but I couldnt find any stores that had it in store so I couldnt find out everything and the pics dont do it justice. A few things i wish i knew before I purchased: The charger it a proprietary 30 pin charger that plugs into the bottom and can connect to the optional keyboard It dose not come with the keyboard It has no direct usb port but dose come with a 30pin to usb converter (its quite small but theres nowhere to...
Excerpt: However there is a microsd slot for an additional space up to 64 gb. There is also two USB 2.0 slots and a micro HDMI slot. Overall, the Asus Vivotab TF810C has been a magnificent experience so far although my set has been plagued with a ghost touch issue which hindered the touch capability, but the fact that I’m still giving such a magnificent review shows that the tablet is really one of a kind. Amazing as a tablet, amazing as a laptop.
Summary: I did experience some minor trouble with sleep mode (waking up in the middle of the night?) and screen autorotation. That seems to have cleared up. I had to get live updating working. I wish the trackpad had some fancier driver so I could shrink the landing zone: I touch it with my palms too often, by accident. The use of an Atom processor is fantastic. Getting the advertised infinite battery life and very happy with that. I'm an engineer and (counterintuitively?
Direct competition to the macbook air, this thing is a workhorse

Summary: First of all, you may have found my review on the vivotab RT version. I've got nothing but good things to say about the RT version. But here's a story that convinced me to return the vivotab RT after almost a month with it and got this windows 8 vivotab. I've been using tablets for lite work while on the go for a couple of years now. Started out with the ipad. Then tried out other tablets.
Works Great If You're willing to find updates and manually install

Summary: Updated March 7, 2013 .... I just upgraded my rating from 1 star to 4 stars. I'm on my second VivoTab - The first one went dead and Asus Replaced it under RMA, but it never worked right. Anyway I got the new machine and it was also sluggish and ASUS native Live Update software wouldn't wouldn't run and therefore wouldn't update the system.

Summary: This is not competition to iPad, but rather MacBook Air. This might be Asus's first serious take on Surface Pro and a new branch of Pro Tablets. Pros: -beautiful design, full aluminum back is very sturdy. When holding with one hand it doesn't feel like its gonna snap in half like some cheap tablets.
A very good device that falls decidedly short of perfection

Summary: **UPDATE 2 | 9/25/2013 - Driver issues have been fixed by the manufacturer and Windows 8.1 makes huge strides in getting it right (general release is in October, but you can install it now if you have a MSDN/TechNet/Dreamspark subscription) ** ** - updated information This is a long review, so if you're looking for a short Pros/Cons/Should You Buy breakdown, skip right to the end.
Summary: What makes the VivoTab an irresistible product is the flexibility to operate it as a tablet and as a notebook whenever you need to. (I would say it is a tablet first and notebook next) Win 8 enables instant transition between the traditional desktop mode and the tablet-friendly 'modern' (previously branded as 'Metro') mode. This was my very first exposure to Win 8 and surprisingly, I was instantly at ease with this new avatar - I have to confess I really liked it.
