With the 32GB tablet coming in at $699 (the 64GB isn't widely available yet at time of writing), the VivoTab RT doesn't seem cheap until you factor in the included mobile dock. The price is about the same as the Surface and optional Type Cover, but...

The ASUS VivoTab RT is a convertible that sports an excellent design with good build quality. It can instantly switch to a tablet from a laptop without breaking a sweat. It is great as a portable tablet alone, while the keyboard dock only adds to...

On the surface, Windows 8 and Windows RT look almost identical. In fact, unless you know the device, there's initially very little to give away which version of Windows you're using. And that's exactly the way Microsoft wants it.One surprise was the...

I've written previously about the importance of physical keyboards for getting real work done, so it was with great excitement that I unpacked the Mobile Dock accessory for the ASUS VivoTab RT. Essentially a gigantic battery with a Chiclet QWERTY...

The ASUS VivoTab RT is a very good Windows RT tablet that looks great and has a nice finish. We don't have any complaints in terms of software or hardware. Nevertheless, we still can't think of a good reason to buy a Windows RT product. Windows 8...

Windows 8 is the first consumer version of Windows that not only runs on processors with the X86 architecture (from Intel and AMD), but also with processors with the ARM architecture. That makes it possible to compare the performance of these two...

The ASUS VivoTab RT isn't the absolute best Windows RT tablet on the market, but it's a pretty darn good one. You've probably noticed by now my repeated references to the Surface. While it might not be fair to repeatedly refer back to the other...

So does the ASUS VivoTab measure up as a Windows 8 tablet that can quickly transform into a functional laptop? The answer is a mixed bag – while the keyboard dock is an excellent idea, it’s actual usability is hampered by uncomfortable keys...

Considering all of the positive and negative aspects of both of these tablets, it is quite evident that Windows 8 is a touch operating system and should only be experienced with a touch environment. I personally did not like Windows 8 until I started...

While its detachable keyboard dock remains a good idea and provides stellar battery life, the ASUS Vivo Tab RT has build quality issues, a cramped physical keyboard and is let down by a limited and frustrating Windows RT platform. At this price, it's...
