Like we said folks, it’s imperative for you to pick up the keyboard dock with this one! So much so that we’re able to get by close to three whole days of heavy usage with the combined batteries of the tablet and its keyboard dock. Therefore, it’s more than equipped to soundly keep you mobile on the go for an extensive amount of time.


Before we get into the nitty gritty, we’d like to point out that Asus is offering a special promotion on the VivoTab RT, which enables any buyer of the tablet to get the keyboard dock for free. Yes folks, you heard that right! If you pick up the tablet before the end of the year (December 31st, 2012), you’ll be able to nab it au gratis! All in all, it’s really giving the Surface RT a good run for its money.

Heck, the more we think about it, at the same price that Microsoft is selling its Surface RT tablet with its touch cover, we actually find more value in Asus’ offering. Not only are you getting a versatile netbook replacement, but the extra battery power is significant in making it a true portable powerhouse. At the same time, the sleek figure of the VivoTab RT works well in keeping it manageable to carry around. And lastly, it’s packing a much better camera than the Surface RT as well

When it comes down to it, the VivoTab RT merely goes to show that Asus can always stand tall in the face of competition – even if it’s from the direct source. If you’re considering picking up a Windows RT tablet, this is surely going to be one you’ll want to check out. Frankly, there’s a fair amount of value seen in this $599.99 tablet, which again, is bundled with the keyboard dock.
