Reviews for the Asus VivoTab Smart ME400C-C1-BK

ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 10.1 inch Windows 8 Tablet Review
Source: Legit Reviews English
The ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400 Tablet is running Windows 8, this gives the ASUS VivoTab Smart a great selection of applications. Actually it is pretty much anything will run in a Windows environment. Toss in the battery life that we experienced and the increased portability of the 10.1" size and the ASUS VivoTab Smart is great alternative to an ultrabook and a great tablet overall!

Despite stylish looks and good build quality, the Asus struggles to make its case. The lack of a proper docking keyboard nixes its appeal as a laptop substitute, and the lack of a USB port severely impacts upon its day-to-day utility. While the VivoTab Smart ME400C gets the price and the looks right, it's sorely lacking in practicality.

As far as performance goes, the VivoTab Smart operates much more like a tablet than a laptop, and quite a weak one at that. As part of the Cloverview SoC, Intel’s 1.8GHz Atom Z2760 processor is convincingly out-gunned by the high-end ARM chips in mobile devices, such as the Nexus 4′s Snapdragon S4 Pro that we compared it to. The lowly dual core is no match for even the most basic of real laptop processors.

Review: Asus VivoTab Smart offers full Windows 8 OS in hybrid tablet form
Source: PC World English
The Bluetooth keyboard accessory is surprisingly pleasant to use. Not only is it extremely lightweight and slim—you wouldn’t think twice about tossing this in your bag alongside the VivoTab—it’s surprisingly comfortable to type on. Well, relatively speaking. The island-style keys are small, but well-spaced, and they offer considerable tactile feedback. It’s certainly not my first choice among keyboards, but as far as externals go, it’s pretty good. As a lightweight hybrid that’s more tablet than laptop, the Asus VivoTab Smart is a decent choice. This tablet is both extremely portable and usable, and the full Windows 8 OS is a welcome bonus.

60% Asus VivoTab Smart ME400 review: the Windows 8 tablet to rival Microsoft's Surface?
Source: Tech Advisor English
Asus has done a good job with the VivoTab's design, producing a tablet that can compete with any of its Windows, Android or iOS rivals. The dual-interfaces of Windows 8 still feel like a compromise when running on a tablet, but if you do need to run existing Windows software on a light and compact portable device then the VivoTab provides a good alternative to Microsoft’s own Surface tablet.

The device comes loaded with the full version of Microsoft's latest touch focused operating system, making it infinitely more business friendly than any other RT tablets. This value proposition is slightly let down by the device's Atom-based Intel chip, which while helping make its battery life good, does make it feel slightly slow compared to other tablets.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z2760: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.8 GHz (only Turbo?), a PowerVR SGX 545 based GPU clocked at 533 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2-800 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.10":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.6 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


73.4%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
