Asus VivoTab Note 8 Tablet Is Wrong Size, Wrong OS [REVIEW]

 

While the Asus VivoTab Note 8 tries to embrace desktop/mobile duality, it should be considered by Windows 8.1 aficionados only.

Fast and responsive 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet ; microUSB expandable memory jack ; Pre-installed native photo/video apps

Small screen provides poor Windows 8.1 experience ; So-so battery life ; Poor camera

Asus is stuck with an awkward dual OS problem, and the VivoTab Note 8 should be considered by patient Windows 8.1 aficionados only.

ASUS VivoTab Note 8 Tablet Review

 

Does ASUS latest Windows 8 tablet offer a real alternative to iOS and Android?

Excellent Wacom Stylus ; Good value for money ; Free Microsoft Office ; Full Windows 8.1

Uninspiring design ; Average Battery Life ; Poor quality audio ; Basic connections ; Low quality cameras

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...

Asus VivoTab Note 8 review

 

The Asus VivoTab Note 8 is the best small form-factor Windows 8.1 tablet available. But even with its dockable Wacom stylus, the Microsoft OS isn't suited to smaller tablets.

Wacom stylus, Windows 8.1 productivity services, bundled with Microsoft Office

Dull design, average screen, small display means text and desktop applications can be fiddly to use

ASUS VivoTab Note 8 M80TA

 

Standing out in this crowd is tough, and Asus at least makes a good attempt with the $329 VivoTab 8, which is the only one of our current 8-inch Windows 8 tablet review systems to include a stylus. The Wacom stylus tucks into a tiny recess in the...

The Asus VivoTab 8 includes a Wacom stylus, something other 8-inch Windows 8 tablets lack. Battery life isn't at the top of its class, but it's close.

Fewer connections than some similar tablets; no Windows button on the tablet face; not as slim as the competition.

The 8-inch VivoTab 8 is a Windows tablet that doesn't particularly stand out in a crowded field, until you discover the Wacom stylus tucked inside its body.

Asus VivoTab 8 review

 

There's no shortage of 8-inch Windows 8 tablets right now. We've recently reviewed models from Acer, Dell, and Lenovo, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, but also largely similar in terms of components and price.

Asus VivoTab Note 8

 

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...

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.

No I/O ports. No 4G/LTE option.

The Asus VivoTab Note 8 puts a lot of utility in your hands for not a lot of money. The addition of a digitizer and included pressure-sensitive stylus will help budding artists and anyone who wants to take handwritten notes on their tablet. Other...

Review Asus VivoTab Note 8 (M80TA) Tablet

 

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...

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

Display resolution not very high, Limited number of ports, eMMC flash storage somewhat slow, Additional ports like a monitor out and USB

ASUS VivoTab 810 Windows 8 tablet

 

The VivoTab 810 is an Atom-based Windows 8 tablet that can do double duty as a laptop

Light weight and feels good to hold ; Keyboard dock is useful for productivity apps ; Great battery life ; Ships with a stylus for handwriting

Needs more internal storage space ; Power adapter cord a little too short ; Price could be better
