Asus VivoTab Smart

 

Full Windows 8 operating system, 8MP rear camera, Light and comfortable to use, Cheap for a Windows 8 tablet

Low quality internal speakers, Low resolution screen, Frustrating to use without a bluetooth keyboard, No USB connection out of the box, Build quality could be better

We've reviewed quite a few tablets here at AVForums, the majority using the Android OS but a couple of iPads as well. They've varied in looks, design, specification and performance, ranging from the top draw iPad down to a sub £250 Toshiba AT300. As...

Beautiful screen, Well built, A pleasure to hold, Decent battery life

Poor sound, Occasional performance hiccups

For those holding out for a full Windows 8 tablet that’s capable of running regular Windows 8 programmes, the Asus VivoTab Smart is what you are looking for. With an LTE version available as well (not tested here), as far as Windows 8 tablets go, the...

Asus VivoTab Smart (ME400C) Windows 8 Tablet Review

 

Want a tablet but struggling to justify the laptop-like price tag? Want a laptop but thinking that the larger size could be an inconvenience? Asus aims to make those problems a thing of the past with its best-of-both-worlds VivoTab Smart (ME400C)...

Full-blown, 32-bit Windows 8 can handle desktop and tablet usage scenarios ; Easy and comfortable to use ; Very good design and build quality ; Excellent battery life ; Plenty of wireless connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS ; Good price

Requires the £90 TranSleeve keyboard for best productivity ; Low wireless networking speed ; Poor brightness levels ; Weak CPU and GPU performance – out-gunned by high-end ARM chips

KitGuru says: An easy and fun to use hybrid device that has a good battery life and competitive price tag. Better hardware performance and the VivoTab Smart would be a formidable competitor to high-end tablets and entry-level laptops.

Review Asus VivoTab Smart ME400C Tablet

 

The compatible one. No matter whether iOS, Android or Windows RT, all operating systems have their quirks when it comes to the compatibility with the standard Windows 7 or Windows 8 versions. Asus' VivoTab Smart might eliminate these restrictions owing...

Bright, viewing angle stable and high-contrast screen, Good touch features with reliable feedback, Good battery life, Far-reaching Windows compatibility, Windows 8 on a tablet. That works quite well and is as functional as a Swiss pocketknife

Fiddly micro interfaces, Hardware button with moderate feedback, Partly outdated performance for Windows 8, Matching cords and adapters for the micro interfaces. Also, the graphics solution for Windows 8 could have a bit more power and above all a...
