VivoTab from Asus
Wednesday, December 26, 2012 by theAVMAN | Discussion: Mobile Tech
I avoided the whole iPad surge patiently waiting on a fully functional Windows tablet. So for Christmas my wonderful wife decided I had waited long enough! The Surface was finally released and getting good reviews so right before ordering I (me being me ) decided I should do some investigating . I had been wanting an Asus tablet because I have an awesome Asus laptop that will smoke most desktop PC's that has giving me a ton of trouble free service.(second Asus laptop) The last few months I have been extremely busy not even much time to SKIN (errrrrr) . So I have been behind on all the latest releases and low and behold the new Asus Tab had been released . So I started the comparison process....
- Price the same
- Processor the same
- Feature Asus had a slight edge ...built in gps sensor and a couple other Asus specifics
- Keyboard this was the biggest difference thin flexible from Microsoft or rigid dock from Asus .. I like the dock if I am home stable is good on road no need!
- However you have to mail in rebate to get the the keyboard free if purchased separate it is an additional $150
I am posting this from the tablet and all in all this is an amazing product faster than the iPads I have used (quadcore processor) beautiful graphics lightweight gorgeous product with full Windows, windows live ,sky drive integration. I have only spent a couple hours on it so far and haven't even run out 1battery charge yet but I will post more of my impressions as time permits.
Now if I could only SKIN Windows 8 I'd be ecstatic!!!
