ASUS didn't give a launch date for its new tablets, but they're due in the "coming weeks"

Many PC makers have announced Windows 8 tablets, but shocked customers with their high prices. However, ASUS unveiled a few new Windows 8 tablets today, including one below $500. 

ASUS introduced three new tablets today: the VivoTab Smart for $499, the VivoTab RT for $599 and the 11.6-inch VivoTab for $799.

You're probably wondering why the VivoTab Smart is so special when the Dell XPS Windows 8 tablet and the Microsoft Surface are both priced at $499, too. The difference is that the VivoTab Smart is one of the only Windows 8 tablets with an Intel processor priced below $500. The Dell XPS has an ARM-based processor while the Surface RT has a quad-core Tegra 3 processor by NVIDIA and runs the RT version of Windows 8.

The VivoTab Smart has a 10.1-inch display, an Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail processor, an 8 MP camera and eight to nine hours of battery life -- all for $499.

The VivoTab and VivoTab RT both run Windows RT and have ARM-based processors.

Not many hardware-related specs were announced today, but ASUS is offering a few accessories to compliment its Windows 8 tablets. The optional extras include a wireless keyboard and screen protector called TranSleeve, and a keyboard dock that turns the tablets into laptops.

Nobody actually calls themselves a "fanboi". That's just BS, I have not said that.

Your real purpose here is me and to try and downplay anything Microsoft.


Is your tinfoil hat coming loose? That's absurd and, again, completely false.

My "purpose" here is to downplay, and troll, all things Apple however. That I admit with pride :D

Well yes, sanctimonious assholes tend to have that effect on me. But again, you started this, don't play coy now that you don't like how it's going.
