Mediocre Tablet by Steve58
I have had this tablet for over a year and it has back for repairs three times. Most common response to my complaints is to reload Windows, yet I still have horrible Touchscreen response, jerky video, and frequent lockups when streaming video. The only good things I can say are it does have MS Office suite and provides a good platform for capturing pix. The keyboard is nice since it adds battery life and peripheral expansion.

I Love This Tablet by Dee65
I bought the Asus as a replacement of my iPad that was stolen. Anyone considering a tablet purchase should check the Asus out. Honestly, I am enjoying the Asus more than I did the iPad. Having a keyboard to type with is awesome. Windows 8 RT is great. Iove, love, love it!

Its ok I guess by Schtoultz
This works fine, but it is nothing too special. I could have completed what it was bought for with a 10 times less costly device. However I was upsold by the salesperson.

Great tablet. Great price. by DKRA
I am not an "early adopter" of any technology. I had been shopping for tablets for over a year. I couldn't get excited about the I pad. The price seemed too high. I love the ASUS. The price was right and it came with Windows RT. Which I love. Still waitng for the keyboard which ASUS is giving away as a promotion through 12-31-12.

Great Tablet by Railer
The only thing I've been dissatisfied with concerning this tablet is the fact that there is no screen protector or case available (FROM ANY SOURCE) to protect my investment. In my opinion this is very poor planning on ASUS's part for customer satisfaction.

Excellent Windows RT Tablet by JCmn
In terms of hardware, this tablet packs in a lot. The question is: can Windows RT take advantage of all that hardware features. I think Asus' unique design mostly succeeded in showing that Windows RT shines in this package. The combination of touch screen, keyboard, and trackpad makes it a joy to run a variety of apps and programs on this tablet. One can also plug in a mouse transceiver to the usb port adapter for the tablet when it is undocked to get similar effects via a mouse. The central key enabler, I think, is the cursor, which is almost non-existent in iOS or Android. As this tablet shows, touch and mouse inputs can co-exist. For many productivity apps, the combo is very powerful. The Vivo RT shows many great potentials of Windows 8 RT. At this point, the first few days, I am using this as my device of choice to access a Windows 7 Pro desktop via remote desktop in addition to typical iPad type of tablet usage. Eventually it will probably completely replace my iPad 3 as the number of apps grow. In a way, this is a much better laptop replacement than iPad if one already has a desktop somewhere for the remote desktop app. I also found that the built-in HDMI port for connecting a monitor is very useful. Just like that in a laptop, a connected 1080p monitor can be used to extend the display or as the sole display. The touch gestures still work the same on the tablet's touch screen even when the display is not being used. One area that Asus needs to improve on is quality control. The first device I got froze up completely a few times in a day. Every time I had to power the device down and back up to get it to work again. I exchanged that for this 2nd one that I am using to type this review. It has been working flawlessly so far.

Lightweight Windows in more ways than one by SFMitchell
I've tried Windows Surface RT and the Vivo several times and think the Vivo is better in my hand. I love Asus' dock far better than either of the keyboards that Microsoft is currently offering for Surface, it's actually usable. The problem is that WindowsRT just isn't ready for prime-time. As an OS, it roughly on par with Android Froyo, but with practically no apps. Worse, it's just as closed an ecosystem as iOS. All this may not be a big deal to many potential buyers as it's being advertized as a business machine that can be used to create real MS Office documents. That is you can as long as you don't need to access documents via VPN. Practically no business standard VPN protocols are supported on Windows RT. Given all the drawbacks, I'd expect the Vivo to actually be less than the Asus' Transformer Infinity that is similarly spec'ed, but it's actually substantially higher priced. My suggestion is simply to wait. The Microsoft rep told me that VPN will be coming in Surface PRO some time in the beginning of 2013. When you can have a REAL business machine that is as lightweight as other tablets, it might actually be worth it. I expect Asus to likely offer one of the more compelling options at that time.
