    ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, today announces VivoTab, a thin and light tablet featuring Windows 8. With an MSRP starting from US$799, VivoTab has an 11.6" multi-touch HD display, Wacom digitizer stylus and Intel Atom dual-core processor for an excellent combination of performance and energy efficiency. Its optional Mobile Dock offers increased productivity too, thanks to its full keyboard and a built-in battery that gives up to 19 hours' mobile use.

    ASUS VivoTab has a 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 dual-core processor with enhanced performance and incredible energy efficiency allowing Windows 8 to run both, the latest software and legacy applications, giving users a wide choice of software for every need. VivoTab's 11.6" multi-touch display has a pin-sharp 1366 x 768 HD resolution with vibrant colors, wide viewing angles and superior outdoor visibility, thanks to the amazing brightness of its Super IPS+ technology. ASUS TruVivid technology enhances image clarity still further by reducing the display thickness, while scratch-resistant Corning Fit glass with anti-fingerprint coating keeps the screen crystal-clear.

    Flexible control for intuitive use
    Flexibility is key with ASUS VivoTab, whatever the task in hand. Multi-touch gives full fingertip control with Windows Store apps, while the Wacom digitizer stylus offers extreme precision with Desktop apps. When connected to its new Mobile Dock with streamlined "hidden hinge" design, VivoTab is instantly transformed into a notebook, complete with keyboard, large multi-touch touchpad and two USB 2.0 ports for unprecedented productivity. Better still, the Mobile Dock extends VivoTab's 10.5-hour battery life by up to nine hours, for an unbelievable 19 hours' mobile use.

    Powerful, practical and extremely portable
    ASUS VivoTab is powerful and practical, but it's also supremely portable. Its sleek metallic design is a mere 8.7mm thin and 675g light, and innovative Nano Molding technology ensures a tactile finish that's as sturdy as it is stylish. Quad speakers with ASUS SonicMaster technology means VivoTab sounds as good as it looks too, while the 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus five-element lens and large f/2.2 aperture delivers best-in-class image capture.

    I call BS on this: VivoTab's 11.6" multi-touch display has a pin-sharp 1366 x 768 HD resolution.

    1366x768 at 11.6 inches is NOT pin sharp. Pen sharp maybe.

    Still better than 1366*768 @ 15.6" (laptops) or even at 20" (the cheapest LCD monitors).
