Asus VivoTab 8 review

 

There's no shortage of 8-inch Windows 8 tablets right now. We've recently reviewed models from Acer, Dell, and Lenovo, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, but also largely similar in terms of components and price.

The Asus VivoTab 8 includes a Wacom stylus, something other 8-inch Windows 8 tablets lack. Battery life isn't at the top of its class, but it's close.

Fewer connections than some similar tablets; no Windows button on the tablet face; not as slim as the competition.

The 8-inch VivoTab 8 is a Windows tablet that doesn't particularly stand out in a crowded field, until you discover the Wacom stylus tucked inside its body.

Asus VivoTab 8 M81C Tablet Review

 

A solid device. Like many other manufacturers, Asus now has a new 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet on the market. In terms of hardware, the VivoTab 8 is mostly on par with the competing models. In terms of price, however, currently the new Asus device is at...

Bright, high-contrast IPS display, Always remains cool, One-year Office 365 license

Only 1 GB working memory

The Asus VivoTab 8 M81C-1B010W is a simple 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet. It offers enough performance for office and Internet-related applications. Thanks to the full-fledged Windows installation, it's also possible to use normal desktop applications. The...

Defective Tablet

 

None

Low-Quality Build. Slow Page Load & Response. Tablet screen blinks off and on. ASUS Support not reliable, not helpful

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great deal

 

Windows 8.1 is worth learning. You can do so much more with a Windows tablet than Ipad/Android. It can do anything a normal computer can do. Its a computer OS. Helpful hint: Read some Windows 8.1 guides/functions to learn how to get the most use out of...

Windows 8.1 ; 2GB RAM ; 32GB HD ; Best deal on a budget Win8.1 tablet I could find ; Pleasantly surprised with the speed of desktop mode

Battery life is pretty bad. You'll either need to charge it frequently or always shut it down when you're done with it. It boots very quick tho ; Windows 8.1 takes a while to learn if you've never used it ; Windows apps take too long to load (but once...

Great Case

 

For the average tablet user, this thing is exactly what you need. Nothing too fancy, but gets the job done and does it well. Not built for a photographer. Good for watching netflix, typing notes. Speaker could be better, but still isn't awful.

Snappy UI, plenty of RAM, comes with Office 365 for free, does what it's supposed to do and well

Bad camera, no stylus
