Asus VivoTab hands-on
Of course, we were introduced to a handful of full featured laptops, but when it comes to tablets, they showed off a couple at the event. Naturally, we had the opportunity of checking them both out. Starting off with the first offering, the Asus VivoTab is a fully equipped Windows 8 tablet that features an 11.6” Super IPS+ display with Corning’s Fit Glass, 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 dual-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 1080p video recording, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.
However, the unique thing about the Asus VivoTab is the fact that it provides the comforts of a traditional laptop thanks to the optional keyboard dock you can purchase – similar to what we’ve been seeing with its Android-based tablets. Not stopping there, it also features a very useful Wacom Digitizer Stylus to provide us all the comforts of jotting down notes and other things.
Asus VivoTab hands-on
1. Very wide looking for a tablet
2. Sharp display, but it would’ve been nice seeing a higher resolution
3. Very thin and solid construction
4. Flexibility in jotting down notes
5. Optional docking keyboard packs added functionality as well

Looks good, despite lower resolution and uninspired looks. Price?

I thought this one was $799 and the keyboard was extra

I freaking love this thing so much.
It's like my Infinity with full Windows and a stylus!

Now that is a good future for netbooks/tablets....please give us some AMD APU $4-500 options!

Looks great - this might be the one.
Only two things I don't like are the lack of integrated pen slot and also only micro sd instead of full SD. Would have liked a vga port but I can live without it.
Beats the Samsung Ativ as it seems better constructed, higher quality materials, no silly port flaps, battery in the dock. Only thing the samsung has over this is the integrated pen slot and maybe the s pen apps.
