When Windows 8 platform appeared it actually changed mobile devices to suit its two environments – the tile interface and the common desktop one. In result most tablets now come with an option for a keyboard dock, which means users don’t have to give up the laptop experience only because they chose to be more mobile.
You will be able to install and use any software compatible with Windows 8 platform
And in fact performance also is on a level with laptops. Digital Magnet took for a test one of those hybrids. This is Asus VivoTab TF810C.
The tablet easily converts into a notebook work station as it comes with a keyboard dock and also a stylus to help you take full advantage of all office applications and more professional software. In fact, the machine runs a full Windows 8 operating system, which means that you will be able to install and use any software compatible with that platform, not only applications from the Windows store as it is the case with the Windows RT.
he machine is loaded with an Intel Atom Z2760 processor which has two cores, each one running at 1.8GHz
Asus VivoTab TF810C will help you cope with basic office tasks, browsing, undemanding games and software and entertainment applications. If you want to play 3D games, you’d better look somewhere else. The machine is loaded with an Intel Atom Z2760 processor which has two cores, each one running at 1.8GHz frequency. The most important advantage of an Atom processor is its power consumption, which is much lower than that of an IntelCore CPUs. Browsing is a real pleasure, pages load quickly and we didn’t experience any lags as the device has plenty of system memory – 2GB RAM. Unfortunately it is not expandable. Performance could be criticized in terms of streaming high-definition videos, when the tablet was sometimes slow and stuttering.
The memory storage is 64GB, 50 of which are available to the user. To that Asus also adds 32GB webstorage space which could be used for 36 months.

One of the best things about tablet hybrids is that they often have two batteries on board, which provides long battery life. This one is not an exception. The tab has a 30Wh li-polymer battery which provides 7 hours of charge under maximum usage and on full brightness. In battery-saving mode both batteries are able keep the machine running for nearly 19 hours, which makes this one of the best choices for people who travel.
One of the best things about this hybrid device is the wonderful display. We have an 11.6-inch Super IPS+ diplay. It is nice and super bright and it’s a pleasure to watch videos on it as it also offers wide viewing angles.
The touchscreen technology is also great – both with fingers and also with the pressure-sensitive Wacom stylus
The resolution here is 1366×768 at a great pixel density -135ppi. The colors are true-life and the details – sharp this is achieved thank to Asus TruVivid technology which mergers display layers for a better picture. We really didn’t have any remarks about the display. The touchscreen technology is also great – both with fingers and also with the pressure-sensitive Wacom stylus. There is a Corning Fit Glass protection layer on top to make it scratch-resistant.
Connectivity options on the Asus VivoTab TF810C offer two USB2 ports, the tablet also supports NFC.
The 8MP base camera comes with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor
Tablets usually fail to take good photos as their cameras are installed to mostly serve as video call ones. This Vivotab is a kind of exception. It features an 8MP auto-focus base camera with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor inside. Its lens has 5 elements for better performance. Low-light conditions are not that big of a challenge also because of the large aperture number of f 2.2. It also uses an LED flash in low-light. The front lens offers 2MP.
In conclusion we think that Asus VivoTab TF810C is an excellent laptop replacement for basic tasks and multimedia.
