Asus VivoTab Note 8 launched with Intel BayTrail processor and Wacom stylus

Asus has launched the Asus VivoTab Note 8, a Windows 8.1 tablet that comes with a Wacom digital stylus.

The first 8-inch version of the Asus VivoTab,

the VivoTab Note 8 is designed for working on the go with Microsoft Office

Home and Student offered as standard as well as the handy stylus.

Asus VivoTab Note 8 Features

The Asus VivoTab Note 8 comes with an 8-inch 1280 x 800p HD IPS display, running the latest Windows 8.1 OS.

It

runs on an Intel Atom “BayTrail” Z3740 processor with 2GB of RAM and

has 32GB of internal storage. This can be bolstered by the microSD slot,

which supports cards up to 64GB in size.

Asus is also offering

unlimited Asus WebStorage access for a year with the VivoTab 8, which is

great for those opting for the smaller storage sizes.

With a 15.5Whr battery, Asus claims the VivoTab Note 8 can offer an 8-hour battery life for around a day’s worth of intensive use.

The

professional Wacom digitiser stylus is hidden in a holder along the

bottom edge of the tablet for easy access. The Wacom stylus has over

1000 levels of pressure sensitivity so you can develop your sketches and

drawings.

To increase your productivity, a full version of the

Microsoft Office Home and Student edition is pre-installed on the

VivoTab Note 8, so you have Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote on your

tablet from the off.

The VivoTab Note 8 also features SonicMaster

audio technology and weighs just 380g. This is a touch weightier than

the iPad mini 2, but still very portable.

Asus VivoTab Note 8 Release Date and Price

The

Asus VivoTab Note 8 will launch sometime in February for £299.99. We’ll

update you with a more specific release date when we get one.
