ASUS VivoTab Note 8
7 June 2014
Conclusion: For a sub £300 Windows 8 tablet, the Asus VivoTab Note 8 has a lot to offer. The closest competitor with very similar specifications, the Dell Venue 8, doesn't offer a stylus out-of-the-box or have a handy little slot to keep it in either and the stylus is the big selling point here and what sets the tablet apart from the competition.
Pros: Excellent Wacom Stylus, Good value for money, Free Microsoft Office, Full Windows 8.1
Conclusion: Out of the latest group of Windows 8 slate tablets, the Asus VivoTab 8 distinguishes itself with a low price, and by including standard features that are options on competing tablets. These extra features help it to pull ahead of the pack to become our first Editors' Choice for entry-level Windows 8 slates.
Pros: Compact. Built-in storage for pressure-sensitive stylus. Has GPS/GLONASS support. 9 hours of battery life. Comes with MS Office Home and Student. Comes with carrying case. One-year warranty includes accidental damage.
Asus VivoTab Note 8 Tablet Is Wrong Size, Wrong OS
28 April 2014
Excerpt: The 8-inch Asus VivoTab Note 8 tablet is among one of the newer Windows-based tablets to hit the market, promising a full Windows 8.1 experience in a much smaller form factor. The device ($279 for 32GB) is smart in theory, but like Dell , Lenovo and other competitors, it's stuck with an awkward dual-OS problem.
ASUS VivoTab Note 8 Review: Reasonably Priced Tablet Has Mediocre Display, Good Battery and Performance (Video)
28 April 2014
Conclusion: We give this tablet a 7.5 out of 10 for design, an 8.7 for hardware and an 8 for OS and UI. Windows 8.1’s confusion between desktop and Metro has no place on an 8 incher and that’s fully felt by the users. The final grade is 8.06 out of 10 and this feels like a product good for people who draw and students. You can buy the tablet from Amazon .
Pros: affordable price, full Windows 8.1 in a compact package, stylus on board, good battery and connected standby, good performance, new games work, bundled Office
Cons: the screen gets very, very dirty and it’s hard to clean, the screen is pretty poor, old design and bulky, weak camera
Summary: Windows for the back pocket. Windows 8 is gaining ground, particularly in the tablet segment. Although Android still clearly dominates the mass market, many manufacturers offer smaller 8-inch tablets with a full Windows install and thus x86 program-compatibility. With success?
Pros: Fast processor, Long battery life, Digitizer with EMR stylus, MS Office is included, Full Windows 8.1, Good touchscreen with very precise "digitizer" functionality and the included EMR stylus
Cons: Display resolution not very high, Limited number of ports, eMMC flash storage somewhat slow, Additional ports like a monitor out and USB
Summary: Designed for note taking, the ASUS VivoTab Note 8 delivers a natural, realistic drawing experience with an onboard Wacom stylus that sets it apart from competing Windows 8 slates. The device also comes with an array of fun, useful apps that will boost your creativity. Unfortunately, its below-average battery life and poorly placed Windows button diminish our enthusiasm for this tablet.
Excerpt: Samsung has dominated when it comes to stylus tablets, thanks to its ever-expanding glut of Galaxy Note devices (bolstered this month by the spangly new mega-sized Note Pro 12.2 ). They’re great Android devices for keeping productive or creative on the move, rocking the brilliant S-Pen for precise interactions. Now Asus wants in on the action, with the VivoTab Note 8.
Pros: Long battery life, Slick stylus control, Full Windows 8.1
Cons: Screen is too dim, Performance stutters, No HDMI
Summary: Asus VivoTab Note 8 is a 8 inch tablet and running on Windows 8.1 OS. It is powered by Intel Atom Z3740 Quad-Core, 1.86 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM for better processing power. It is available in US for a price of $379 at walmart.com.
Pros: Brilliant IPS display, Wacom stylus present, Good battery support
