When it comes to personalization, Windows 8 isn't as deep as Android, but it's far better than what the iPad delivers.

Reviews Word on the street for the Asus Vivo Tab


7.0
Furthermore, when typing on a lap, the Vivo Tab can remain upward without a kickstand, making it easier to move around and adjust yourself.

8.0
Be that as it may, we found the display still bright enough for most conditions (except when viewed in direct sunlight).

6.7
The screen looks great, with accurate colors and near-180-degree viewing angles — unlike most laptops vertical viewing angles are also quite good, meaning you won't have to work to find a suitable angle.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Operating System

Nvidia says that the Windows Tegra Zone will be ready for launch, though, so a fistful of games will be on-hand for the fun stuff too.
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)
Multimedia: Just like with Windows RT, the Photos Hub with Windows 8 doesn't offer anything out of the ordinary with its feature set, but rather, it's a basic picture viewer that offers us the ability to crop and rotate images.

Next to an Android Transformer tablet, it’s pretty sparse stuff.
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)

Operating system

It’s a two-part system –a desktop half that looks and feels just like Windows 7, and the Metro UI, which is a fully touch-driven interface that looks more like Windows Phone 7.
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)
Over the past year, most of the Windows tablets have been hopelessly heavy and chunky compared to Android alternatives.
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)
For a more standard desktop-like experience, Internet Explorer 10 in the desktop mode is none other than the familiar one that’s used by all Windows PCs, and even offers Adobe Flash support (remember that Android Jelly Bean Tablets officially do not).
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2013)

Screen

The tablet uses a Super IPS display, which brings superb viewing angles, good colour reproduction and class leader-matching top brightness (rated at 600 Nits).
by TrustedReviews (Aug, 2012)
Unfortunately, while 10.1 inches is a good size for a tablet screen it's not good for a laptop.
by The Verge (Oct, 2012)
And its larger screen offers a more cinematic, immersive experience.

Apps

The new Music Hub for Windows 8 is deliciously sweet looking, as it incorporates the Modern UI style of the platform into the music player – and also offers synchronization with your XBOX Music account.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2013)
Gestures for closing apps, swiping between them and viewing the Charms Bar on the right are quite basic and easy to learn once you get the hang of it.
by PhoneArena (Feb, 2013)
Apps can take several seconds to load at all and several more to load fully; there are stutters and lags as you swipe through apps; some taps and gestures just don't register.
by The Verge (Oct, 2012)

Battery

As long as you're not playing graphically intense games, battery life is something you'll rarely need to worry about with the Vivo Tab RT..
by The Verge (Oct, 2012)
After leaving it on maximum brightness and spending a few hours with it browsing the Web and playing games, the battery barely lost a fourth of its reserves and it can definitely go a workday or two without a charge with casual use.
