Reviews for the Asus Vivo Tab RT TF600

89% Review Asus Vivo Tab RT TF600 Tablet | Notebookcheck
The battle begins. The Microsoft Surface RT was the first device that introduced the world to the newest version of Windows and the first one to run on the ARM architecture. Asus is well known in the industry to make the best quality tablets other than Apple. Asus is hoping this to be another feather in their cap.

Ultimately, Asus’ VivoTab RT gets the hardware side of things almost spot on: it’s gorgeous, lightweight and beautifully designed. But until the software starts to deliver on its promises, lovely hardware just isn't enough.

Tablets are all about the experience of software married to hardware. The Asus Vivo Tab's solid hardware provides the makings of a good experience, and Windows RT is a good foundation for that experience. But Windows RT's many software quirks and omissions may limit the Vivo Tab's audience to dedicated PC users who've recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop or desktop, and want to extend their new Modern UI software purchases across both systems. The inclusion of Office Home & Student 2014 RT gives the Vivi Tab RT an edge, but that edge would have been greater still with a better keyboard dock.

The Asus Vivo Tab RT certainly scores well on battery life, innovation, and portability. Usability, on the other hand, is a mixed bag. It comes with Office RT, a must-have program for workers and students, but the 3,000 app selection from the various apps stores (Windows Store, Asus@Vibe, and Xbox Games) are paltry in comparison to the hundreds of thousands of apps on the iTunes Store, tens of thousands on Google Play, and millions of apps for Windows 7 and 8. Until the Windows Store really gets going, you'll still find a better selection of apps on an iPad or Android tablet. That said, if what you need is a physical keyboard, phenomenal battery life, Microsoft Office, and the Web, the Asus Vivo Tab RT is an intriguing choice.

NVIDIA GeForce ULP (Tegra 3): Integrated Ultra Low Power (ULP) graphics card in the Tegra 3 SoC. Similar to the Tegra 2 GPU but with additional pixel shaders and optimizations.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


3: High-End-SoC for tablets and large smartphones which integrates 4 ARM Cortex A9 Cores and a power saving companion core. Furthermore, a GeForce LP GPU is included that is based on the old GeForce 7.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.525 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
