Asus VivoTab TF810C

Asus VivoTab TF810C: Aboriginal attending at a solid Windows 8 book with pen

It was about two months ago that my HP Envy x2 arrived, and I've appear to like this book with laptop dock. Unfortunately, it is missing one affair I need, so an Asus VivoTab is now sitting on my desk. I bought the alternative VivoTab laptop berth with the tablet, as I accede one to be binding to serve my needs as a adequate laptop. The one affair it has that the Envy lacks is an alive digitizer with pen abutment for demography ink notes, which is the acumen I bought it.

The VivoTab hasn't been with me continued abundant to action abundant impressions, but it's already assuming some nice touches account administration in this aboriginal look.

First thoughts
The book in the berth is a actual athletic laptop, with a adequate keyboard and appropriate trackpad. The closing is not as adequate as added trackpads I've used, but it is functional. The accomplished amalgamation weighs aloof beneath 3 pounds and is crazily thin.

The book snaps into the berth easily, and has the alleviate slider on the book and not the dock, which is unusual. Removing the book from the berth is as accessible as sliding the alleviate slider on the lower larboard of the book and affairs it out of the dock.

The VivoTab is a adequate tablet, with achievement as accepted for an Atom processor. Operation is bland and abrupt accomplishing archetypal things for a Windows 8 tablet. The awning is nice and vivid, and blow operation is as expected.

The pen works actual well, as is archetypal for Wacom technology. Inking in apps that abutment it is bland and pleasant. Asus went with a pen hardly beyond than the stick stylii that best OEMs are using, and it feels added accustomed in the duke than the little ones. Unfortunately, this agency there is no accumulator silo in the tablet, but it's an adequate tradeoff.

Asus includes a sleeve for the VivoTab with the book that additionally serves as a dual-position angle for the slate. It fits the book afterwards the berth perfectly, but I allegation to comedy with the angle adequacy to see how able-bodied it ability work.

The best absorbing affair about the VivoTab so far is the batty array activity it yields. The book abandoned gets a adequate 10 hours on a allegation and addition 9 hours in the dock. Asus uses acute array administration for the two-battery setup. The berth array is depleted first, and again it switches to the book array back the above is dead. This gives you a abounding book array back you pop it off the berth to go authentic slate.

I'll accept added abundant advice about the VivoTab and the laptop berth afterwards I absorb added time with it. So far, it has been a solid laptop and a affable book to use. The pen ascribe is already actual advantageous for demography ink notes, my primary acumen for affairs it.
