Asus VivoTab Smart lands, priced at Php25,999

Asus’ version of the Microsoft Surface is now available in stores and selling for Php25,999. This 10-inch tablet is powered by an Intel Atom processor and Windows 8.

From the form factor perspective and the use of the smart keyboard, the VivoTab Smart looks like they’re in the same league but the Surface RT runs on Windows RT while the VivoTab Smart is on the regular Windows 8 OS.

Asus VivoTab Smart specs:
10.1-inch multi-touch IPS display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Atom Z2760 1.8GHz dual-core processor
64GB internal storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
8MP AF rear camera
1080p full HD video recording
2MP front-facing webcam
ASUS SonicMaster Audo
microHDMI port
microUSB port
microSD card reader
G-Sensor, Light Sensor, Gyroscope, E-compass, Hall sensor, NFC
Windows 8
9.5 hours; 25Wh Li-polymer battery
265.5 x 171 x 9.7mm (dimensions)
580g (weight)

In any case, it looks like Asus is positioning the VivoTab Smart as the new netbook-tablet hybrid. With a suggested retail price of Php25,999, that combo sure does look very appealing.

    Hey sir Yuga, will you be able to do a review of this? :)

    I’ve tried the Asus Vivo Book w/ windows 8 running on 3rd gen i3 processors and there is slight delay start-up times for launching apps. With this unit powered only by an Atom processor, I wonder how it would perform.
    The biggest issue to plague the Windows surface pro 64GB is the memory with only 20GB fresh from the factory. The same question comes to mind with Asus’ iteration.

    @Sir Yuga, could you please compare the performance of this Asus Vivo Tab to the Acer Iconia W510, in terms of responsiveness?

    Atom processor? joking or serious? Thats horrible the price is far too high for terrible netbook specs

      An atom processor that allows the ~9hour battery life is MUCH better than an ARM one thanks to its x86-64 compatibility. The GPU aspect is the one that worries me.

    Wait, no USB port? Sad!(aside from the Micro USB port)

    Looking for performance reference? Try amd E-350 halos same lang yan except sa gpu. Bulok gpu ng clovertrail atom. But it can run DOTA and CS 1.3 Lol!

    Anyway, this is just a secondary pc. Ang pinaka ok dito is yung microsoft office. Meaning what you get from your desktop is the same with your tablet. Bunos nalang ang pagiging x86 nya na makakalaro ka ng dota. Hehehe

    Btw, you can install ubuntu linux if you want.

    Ang pangit lang dito, kailangan no ng usb hub na may power supply para makapagcharge at connect ng usb devices at the same time.

    So if you are looking for full office experience, pc browsing, and a little bit casual gaming from the microsoft store, ok na ok na to. Bonus na yung ibang mga apps sa store.

    Be sure na hindi ito primary pc nyo. Magkakaproblema kayo.

    Good build quaility, ok din naman ang screen, pero iba parin screen ng ipad. Kung mahilig kayo o nasanay sa ipads app, hindi ito anh choice nyo.

    Score: 8.5/10
    Must buy for the one who are looking for portable second computer.

    Does the 26k price include the keyboard dock and does the keyboard dock include any batteries? I’ve been eying this model for a while now so that I can avoid the Acer W510…
