Review: ASUS VivoTab RT TF600
7 March 2013
Excerpt: ASUS’s rendition of Windows RT shows what Microsoft got so right, and so very, very wrong with the Windows RT. It’s not like ASUS is trying to hide VivoTab RT, in fact, it’s one of the only Windows RT devices that is really making a go of it in the United States.
Pros: Excellent multitasking, refined hardware, great Transformer dock performance.
Cons: Windows RT’s walled garden limitations, multitasking hampered by desktop app ban.

Atom vs Tegra in Windows 8: battle of the mobile chips
9 January 2013
Excerpt: Windows 8 is the first consumer version of Windows that not only runs on processors with the X86 architecture (from Intel and AMD), but also with processors with the ARM architecture. That makes it possible to compare the performance of these two architectures, which is exactly what we did.
Conclusion: Viewed within a vacuum, the VivoTab RT is a strong first effort from ASUS as part of the new Windows tablet push. It’s a conservative and mature design that has proven itself in the marketplace. It’s a thin tablet with a clean, modern aesthetic that doesn’t push the boundary much.
Summary: The battle begins. The Microsoft Surface RT was the first device that introduced the world to the newest version of Windows and the first one to run on the ARM architecture. Asus is well known in the industry to make the best quality tablets other than Apple.
Pros: Precise touchscreen, Workmanship / choice of materials, Work speed, Battery life, Bright screen, The maximum brightness enables outdoor use. The tablet mutates to a permanent companion due to its robust build and size.
Cons: No digitizer pen, Current price, Full-sized USB port only in dock or via adapter, A digitizer pen for handwritten inputs like in the case of Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet 2 would complete the bundle
Conclusion: Before we get into the nitty gritty, we’d like to point out that Asus is offering a special promotion on the VivoTab RT , which enables any buyer of the tablet to get the keyboard dock for free. Yes folks, you heard that right!
Pros: Sleek and sturdy design, Better camera performance than the Surface RT, Convertible design, Phenomenal battery life with the keyboard dock

Pros: Light, thin form factor, Excellent battery life, Above-average speaker
Cons: Windows RT has some serious flaws, Keyboard and trackpad are too small, App ecosystem is basically non-existent
