Asus VivoTab Note 8


Out of the latest group of Windows 8 slate tablets, the Asus VivoTab 8 distinguishes itself with a low price, and by including standard features that are options on competing tablets. These extra features help it to pull ahead of the pack to become our...

Compact. Built-in storage for pressure-sensitive stylus. Has GPS/GLONASS support. 9 hours of battery life. Comes with MS Office Home and Student. Comes with carrying case. One-year warranty includes accidental damage

Long battery life ; Slick stylus control ; Full Windows 8.1

Screen is too dim ; Performance stutters ; No HDMI

If you need stylus control then the VivoTab Note 8 is a dependable choice offering all-day productivity, else we’d recommend alternatives such as the Asus Transformer Book instead.

Asus VivoTab Note 8


Asus' newest arrival, the VivoTab Note 8, is as potent as compact tablets come. It squeezes Windows 8.1, an Intel Bay Trail Atom CPU and a stylus into an 8in tablet. The even bigger news is the price: for a smidgen more than £300, this compact...

An affordable, stylus-equipped compact Windows tablet that falls just short of greatness

Asus VivoTab Note 8 review


The Asus VivoTab Note 8 is the best small form-factor Windows 8.1 tablet available. But even with its dockable Wacom stylus, the Microsoft OS isn't suited to smaller tablets.

Wacom stylus, Windows 8.1 productivity services, bundled with Microsoft Office

Dull design, average screen, small display means text and desktop applications can be fiddly to use
