Summary: I got this on a deal day and so at the onset I was pleased with it. I will try to be as brief as possible in my review. This tablet is big and beautiful!!!!! The display is clear. Streaming videos and movies hasn't given me any issues. From experience in the office and at home, the wireless receiver is better than many smart phones (I can attest to it being better than the Samsung S3 & 4, and HTC models). I would get an extra bar of access compared to the other devices.
Summary: one thing I have found out going from my laptop to a tablet is that setting up a tablet takes quite a long time. whe I have to restart it it seems like it takes forever for it to come back up. it is fairly simple to use and figure out it's just not near as fast as what I have been use to with a laptop. I'm sure window 8 is not helping with this matter as well I have had issues with windows 8 from the beginning unlike windows 7 which was great.
Love it, but the keyboard dock is not produced anymore.

Summary: I love it. -cool, quiet -long battery -almost like a small laptop -stylus works very well -HD movies are okay Small office uses are good. Heavier programs take longer to load, but once loaded, works okay. I love it, and I want to buy the keyboard dock. ASUS stopped producing the keyboard dock. I can't find it anywhere. That's kinda frustrating.
Good battery life, but the Atom processor is bad news.

Summary: I looked at other pen tablets from Lenovo, Fujitsu, HP, Microsoft, and Samsung. I decided to purchase this tablet because of its weight and long battery life. I've been using this tablet daily for about 1.5 years. I love that it is super lightweight and it last all day long. They are not exaggerating about the battery life in the specs. Even after a year of use, it is still great. At first I had some issues with distortion using the pen.
Summary: the tablet performs well until you put windows 8.1 on it then it laggs and crashes stay on windows 8 and you wont have an issue the hinge for the keyboard gets loose and the speakers has gone out on me its a shame but a beautiful tablet.
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...
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?

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.
