What’s Noteworthy: Asus’ Vivo Tab RT is one of the first tablets to run Windows RT, a variant of Windows 8 that doesn’t support legacy apps, but allows the tablet to stay connected to e-mail and other apps in standby mode without draining battery life. It’s also lighter than most Intel-based Windows tablets. The detachable keyboard and trackpad dock (sold separately) adds a full-sized USB port and an extended battery.
