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.
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
Conclusion: In any case, we've been impressed with most of these compact Win 8 tablets, and this VivoTab is no exception. In fact, the Asus' built-in pen makes it a better value than the others—just enough to snare it an Editors' Choice award.
Pros: Well-built and attractive, Decent price and performance, 1,024-level Wacom stylus, Built-in stylus compartment, Microsoft Office license included
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.
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.
Summary: If you're looking for a good mix of productivity and portability, Lenovo's Miix 2 is our recommended 8-inch Windows 8 tablet, offering a brighter screen in a sleeker, lighter body, for just $215 on Amazon.
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. Asus VivoTab Note 8 Overview
