  1. This will be the best tablet!! Wanna know why? It isn’t pricey and runs pure Windows 8 which basically makes it a full-fledged PC.

  2. I agree, Its inexpensive and has the right dimensions :-)Pair it with an inexpensive BT KBD and mouse and you have mobility and productivity in a very small package :D Looks great too!

    it uses an atom processor? too slooooooooow…

    • you’re one of those quick judging “atom = slow” people. Sheez, grow up please. Atom isn’t slow anymore :)

    • ^Amen to that. Have you been living under a rock lately? This is the new (i repeat, new) Atom processor you’ve all been whining about. It has been completely revamped from bottom to top.

    • paul e.

      check out decent reviews of acer iconia w510 (particularly performance) using that same processor… just a glorified netbook.

      so sorry if i offended the sensibilities of some people… let me just correct and rephrase what i said earlier…

      not-too-sloooooooow. ;)

    • I have an Asus VivoTab TF810C which uses the same processor.

      Speed is subjective.

      Atom too slow? Definitely not for my use, which is personal browsing, office work and some light gaming.

      Plus you can’t beat the 19 hours of battery life with the optional keyboard dock. Even with a full day of work (plus some overtime) I’m only able to run it down to 60%. I don’t need bring my charger anymore.

  4. Waw 26k na lang. yung nag exibit sila last year mga 32k daw.. cguro me kasama keyboard dock un.

  5. mga ser… d ako mxado techie…hehe.. tankng lang.. windows 8 OS to diba? can it run windows app? or games?like photoshop etc.?

    • yes windows 8 sya kasi intel ang gamit nya processor pero hinde ko sure kung kakayanin nya yung photoshop or high end games. meant for light computing lang sya

  6. jajajason

    Sa wakas! Meron na akong prospect tablet!

  7. I’m glad the responses are mostly positive. I really think Windows 8 can be great, if people give it a try

  8. iPad killer. But casuals would rather buy an iPad with very limited features rather than pony up for a tablet with a full fledged OS.

  9. I’m ditching my plan to get a Nexus 10. I will instead get this one.

  10. great tablet for its price. the best 10.1 imo.

  11. Definitely going to look out for this and then purchase one just in time for my birthday *woot*

    thank god for this (^_^) i was thinking of buying the note 10.1 but this is definitely a better option as i can use it for work given it’s running windows 8 and for entertainment like watching my fave tv series and reading ebooks…i just hope they’ll stick with that pricing once its available in the market given the kind of anticipation from the consumers.. **sigh**

  13. Naah, pricey pa rin for my limited budget

    Still waiting for that sub P20k windows 8 tablet.

  14. no full sized usb port. just one micro USB.
    i can live with that, i think.

    but at this price point, the vivobook (which also has touch capability) is already upgraded to an i3..

  15. Where is this priced?


  16. so what store is selling this tab for 26K?

  17. john b.

    I bought my asus vivo tab at complink in megamall for 26k. I was supposed to buy HP elite tab but opted to buy asus due to a very significant price difference of 17k. so far, the experience is great and i’m running ms office home version.

  18. May built-in GPS ba ang vivotab smart? how much daw ang LTE version?
