The device is based on an x86 Atom central processing unit and runs Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system. If it had an ARM SoC, Windows RT would have been used and the price might have ended up lower as well.
VivoTab houses an Atom Z2670 dual-core CPU with 1.8 GHz clock speed, the newest Atom chip of Intel, an 11.6 inch IPS+ panel with high brightness and Corning Fit glass protection with anti-fingerprint coating. The multi-touch display has a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. On the bright side, the TruVivid technology maximizes image clarity.
ASUS sells the VivoTab 11.6-inch tablet with or without the Mobile Dock. The benefits of the dock are the physical keyboard and built-in battery (takes the battery life from 10.5 hours to 19 hours).
The dock also adds a pair of USB 2.0 ports and offers a large, multi-touch touchpad, although the latter probably won't be used at all. The slate does have a touchscreen after all, and the Windows 8 user interface is best suited for that.
Finally, the ASUS VivoTab possesses an 8MP auto-focus camera and four speakers (SonicMaster technology). As for memory and storage, they should be customizable, though not in a way that will bring the price any lower. With Wacom digitizer stylus and Windows Store apps, it is possible to make the best utilization of the tablet.
