Better late than never, finally a Windows 8.1 tablet has been created which is fully compatible with Wacom's digitizer stylus and is powered by a BayTrail Z3740. The ASUS VivoTab Note 8 ships with Microsoft Office Home already installed to let you get to work immediately, either with your fingers or the Wacom stylus; too bad there is no USB port to attach a keyboard to. Storage is taken care of by an SSD of up to 64GB of capacity and with a free year of unlimited ASUS WebStorage you can store even more.
Las Vegas, NV (January 6th, 2014) — ASUS today announced the VivoTab Note 8, a Windows 8.1 tablet featuring a professional Wacom digitizer stylus, making it the best pen-based tablet for productivity or creativity. Designed for professionals and students alike the VivoTab Note 8 is bundled with Microsoft Office Home and Student, which includes Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. VivoTab Note 8’s lightweight and the ability to use it one-handed make it an ideal mobile productivity tool. With slim bezels, a high-definition IPS display and an elegant design it deserves pride of place in any business or educational environment.
Powerful Quad-Core Processor
The VivoTab Note 8 is powered by the latest Intel Atom Z3740 processor for a perfect balance between multitasking performance and outstanding energy efficiency. With up to 8 hours battery life, VivoTab Note 8 can last for a working day. And with 2GB of memory, up to 64GB of solid-state storage plus the ability to use up to 64GB microSD cards, there is all the storage space you need for your apps and files. Accessing your data on the move is simple, too, thanks to a free year of unlimited ASUS WebStorage.
Precise input with Wacom technology
Designed for one-handed user with ultra-slim bezels, the VivoTab Note 8 is ideal for highly mobile consumers. Its professional digitizer pen sits neatly in its holder along the bottom edge of the tablet, so it is always on hand when you need it. Based on premium Wacom technology, the digitizer stylus affords the best possible accuracy, speed, and responsiveness. This, combined with over 1,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, provides an extremely natural writing or drawing experience, meaning you really can leave your sketchpad or notebook at home: the VivoTab Note 8 is all you need!
Serious About Audio
Developed by the team of experts in the ASUS Golden Ear team, SonicMaster audio technology uses a tailored mix of hardware and software to enhance sound quality to a level far above what you might expect from such a small device. Its rear-facing stereo speakers with large resonance chambers give rich, rounded bass, and sophisticated audio processing tools boost the frequency range to make music, movies and games sound fantastic.
