I never get tired of tiny Windows machines. I’ve owned everything from the OQO to the Fujitsu UH100 to the Viliv N5 to the Dell Venue Pro 8. Now ASUS has tossed its large hat into the 8″ Windows tablet right with its new offering, the Vivo Tab Note 8. Available in 32 and 64 GB flavors, it packs a quad-core Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM and, amazingly, a Wacom digitizer stylus that actually fits into the body of the tablet! Hear that, Microsoft??? The display is 1280X800 and the whole thing comes in at 0.8 pounds. Windows 8.1 comes stock as well as the full versions of Office Home and Student. There are a number of cases available on Amazon, including keyboard cases. A steal at $299 for the 32GB model and $349 for the 64 GB edition. Expandable as always with MicroSD. The only USB is a Micro USB port but with a USB host adapter, you can use it with USB memory sticks and printers. Available now from Amazon!
