CES 2013 | Asus launches Atom-powered VivoTab ME400C tablet

The budget-mainstream 10.1-inch VivoTab ME400C is available now and runs on a Clover Trail Atom Z2760 starting at 500 Euros with an optional Bluetooth keyboard dock.

Hybrid notebook/tablets seem to be dominating the Ultrabook scene ever since the launch of Windows 8. At CES, the Asus VivoTab is yet another such hybrid, but this time with a budget starting price of only 500 Euros (~$650). Called the VivoTab Smart ME400C, the 10.1-inch tablet will use a 720p display protected by scratch-resistant glass with an optional Bluetooth keyboard dock for nearly 110 Euros (~$145).

Other specifications include 64 GB eMMC storage and on-board 2 GB LPDDR2 RAM. The notebook will run a Clover Trail Atom Z2760 with integrated PowerVR SGX545 graphics. Users can expand storage even further with a microSD card.

The VivoTab is available now and is looking to be a good alternative to both the high-end Transformer series  and the ARM-based VivoTab RT TF600.
