Asus pioneered the detachable laptop-tablet hybrid with its Android-based Transformer, and now it’s bringing the concept to Windows with the Vivo Tab and Vivo Tab RT.
The Vivo Tab runs Windows 8 and has an 11.6-inch, 1366-by-768 resolution display, an Intel Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. It also comes with a stylus.
The Vivo Tab RT is the Windows RT version of the tablet, which means it’s thinner and lighter (and will likely be cheaper), but can’t run legacy Windows programs. It has a 10.1-inch, 1366-by-768 display, and inside is a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and the same cameras as the Vivo Tab.
Both tablets come with docking stations that include keyboards, trackpads and extra batteries. The Vivo Tab’s dock has two USB ports, while the Tab RT’s dock has one.
