ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T-B1-GR 10.1-Inch Tablet PC Features
ASUS powers up its hybrid tablet line with the most ambitious device you have seen yet, the ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T-B1-GR 10.1-Inch Tablet PC blends the familiar elegance of ASUS tablet design with Microsoft’s Windows RT. Those familiar with the Transformer line will immediately recognise the clamshell design. Tablet and keyboard are joined by a secure hinge to create what is now a Windows-powered laptop, and the two can be split apart whenever you just want to use the tablet on its own, which offers fantastic freedom.
You get 32GB or 64GB of storage for your files, and ASUS does supply and extra 32GB ASUS Webstorage Space for 3 years, although you will need access to a fast Wi-Fi connection to make this a reliable alternative. Please visit www.asuswebstorage.com for further information. Add in the expansion port on the optional keyboard dock and a microSD card slot on the tablet and it is unlikely you will ever be short of storage. There is HDMI too, so you can plug the VivoTab into a TV to play your movies, or for delivering a presentation, if you prefer. The 8MP camera with flash is good for capturing every moment, and along with the 2MP front camera for easy video-chat. Now you can use your VivoTab RT to take videos in brilliant 1080p HD as well.
The ASUS VivoTab RT has a striking design that suits for both work and play with a real quality finish. The choice of materials used does offer a slightly more premium feel. The VivoTab offers exceptional build quality over its closest quad-core competitor, its metallic finish design feels light to hold. Not only does design matter, ASUS products are also strictly quality tested to surpass industry standards, surviving multiple drop tests, meaning you are able to carry the VivoTab in a bag without needing a protective sleeve. In the long run, you may want a sleeve to prevent the metal casing form getting scratched. If you do not have the keyboard dock or leave it at home, the tablet only weighs in at a good 525grams with a slim 8.3mm thin profile, which is lighter and thinner than the new iPad. ASUS suits its position as one of the world’s most powerful devices, ensuring that every ASUS product you buy will be one of your best investments.
The processor in the VivoTab is slightly better than in the Transformer Prime, and the 1.3GHz quad-core Tegra 3 means the VivoTab absolutely flies, making it practical too. A massive 10.1-inch delivers HD 1366×768 pixels, that is not quite up to the pixels per inch rating of the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. However, the ten inch display is perfect for multimedia enjoyment; watching video on this is a pleasure, as is web browsing, viewing photos and everything. The Super IPS+ display with ASUS TruVivid Technology produces ultra bright outdoor readability with 700nits brightness, and a super wide 178° viewing angle is great for sharing with another user. Best of all, the screen is Corning Fit Glass, meaning it is scratch resistant and durable.
ASUS provides a well-rounded selection of pre-installed apps, including Microsoft Office Home & Student 2013 RT Preview, as well as SuperNote for content creation. Windows 8 Multimedia Content includes X-box videos, music and games, as well as other great organized news and information such as Bing News/Finance/Sports/ Travel.
Combined with the optional keyboard dock, the VivoTab RT is transformed into a productivity powerhouse. The keyboard on the dock is fine though. The keys are responsive and well designed, and large enough to accommodate proper touch typing. It is good enough to use as your main typing device, as good as you will find on most laptops. The keyboard dock contains a second battery designed to boost the tablet section’s own power source. ASUS says the tablet is good for 9 hours of life, and when the battery in the keyboard dock is added it will go for 16 hours. The dock battery drains first and charges last so the tablet always has as much power as it can. This is great. Coupled with the ability to choose processor power modes, most users should be able to get more than a day of heavy use from the battery. The keyboard dock also has a USB slot to add storage and accommodate a separate keyboard or mouse if you please. There are multi-touch touchpad, NFC-tab for pairing up with NFC-enabled devices and peripherals to read or share information.
Overall, the ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T is great all round, it is fast, battery life is impressive, and the display is stunning. The device boasts a solid yet premium finish. Fully packed with rich features, the tablet has enough storage to hold pretty much all your files. A detachable dock with a stylish, hidden hinge design offers the best mobile experience for work and play. The VivoTab RT is undoubtedly pricey, if you are Windows fans and you can afford to purchase it, this is your best product.
ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T-B1-GR 10.1-Inch Tablet PC: Customer Reviews
The VivoTab RT feels solid in your hand. The build quality is great, the casing is superb and it feels like a premium device. Its finish is comparable to Galaxy Note II.
The device is fast and responsive, the screen is stunning. The performance is comparable to the New iPad.
Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are included. Whether you are business users or students, you can complete your tasks with it.
USB capability can be used via the provided dongle, so you can connect a USB flash drive to transfer files. Plus, a microSD card slot supports up to 64GB, so you will have unlimited space to keep your media files and works. The optional keyboard dock provides the USB port.
Micro HDMI connector is available, so your presentation is easy on the external monitor or big screen. You have to provide your own cable in order to use this function.
Bluetooth works very well with a Logitech speaker, I/O gear keyboard, Logitech mouse, and Beats head phones without any issues.
The 8MP rear facing camera produces above average results in indoor with low light settings and delivers nicely saturated although soft colours in outdoor settings. The front facing camera is acceptable for Skype video chat.
Internet Explorer works great so far, YouTube is great on this device.
Wi-Fi connection is fast and smooth.
Great batter life, even you use it without the keyboard dock.
The keyboard dock is not included. It is sold separately.
This is 32GB version; however the Windows RT operating system is taking up half of storage space.
It would be a good idea, if the tablet has an integrated USB port rather than having to use the dongle.
The VivoTab RT is not a complete desktop or laptop replacement, but it is comparable to your PC and can fulfil your daily tasks. This tablet is ideal for both personal and business use.
