Not what I expected.

Summary: Overall the experience with this tablet has been very frustrating. It took over two days to get all the windows updates and upgrade to windows 8.1. Even after the updates the tablet is very slow to respond and the speakers are almost un hear able. It was a decent price but I guess you get what you pay for. I am seriously thinking about sending it back but I really don't feel like going through the hassle. Sticking with my iPad Air.
Summary: This is my first Win RT device, not bad for the money but I think the tablet is slow and kind a weak with 2 gb ram and 1.3 gh processor. Other then that, its great, it preloaded with MS office and works like a real laptop. I also setup printer and file sharing was simple too. Battery life is great also, but wish there is a standard usb cable for charging. Not sure why Asus have their own / separate connector. with dock keyboard this works like a laptop.
Summary: Had difficulty getting used to Window 8 RT. Cannot shift pictures fron picture file to Face Book. It tells me that the pic must be below so many MO when the pic is actually in KOs. I received a code from Microsoft but can't use it, it doesn't work so I do not disconnect.
Summary: SInce we bought this device, we have had to contact customer service twice. They were helpful, but we don't think we should have had trouble with the sound card right from the start. Also, we were required to update to a different version about the time we were starting to get to know our way around. After the upgrade, which wasn't optional, we again needed to contact customer service as we were unable to log on, didn't recognize the password/user id.
Summary: This is a very nice tablet, for media consumption and email it's great. The 16 hour battery life with the keyboard attached make this the perfect companion for long flight. It's light, thin and well made. The problem is adding RT to the end of Windows eliminates all the benefits of the Windows platform, ie application compatibility. Windows 8 RT looks and acts like Windows 8 but without the apps, so you have to ask yourself what's the point.
Summary: this tablet have an excelent hardware. But it comes with windows RT, this is not windows 8, becouse the processor is ARM and don't run x86, x64 programs. it just install gadjets of windows store, so if you expect use the same software that you use in your PC, don't buy this tablet.
Small, but high quality option as a little laptop.

Summary: It's a great tablet combo. Unfortunately there are limited apps available only through Windows. It's still a little heavy, but because it came with Office 2013, it was a great deal. Keyboard is a good size and it makes for a sturdy option to a laptop.
Summary: Let’s face the ugly truth -- Windows 8 RT and the Surface series of tablets haven’t exactly been a raging success. Beaten back by Android and the more expensive but better liked iOS, Windows took a $900 million bath on unsold inventory and ditched the first version for the Surface 2. Unfortunately, RT’s bad karma also rubbed off on other products, including this Asus VivoTab. Originally $600 with a keyboard, the VivoTab was $100 less than the keyboardless Surface.
