ASUS VivoTab Smart ME400





I am very interested in getting this Windows 8 (not RT) tablet. I saw Harvey Norman advertising ME400 on their website, so I went there in the evening to find out they do not have stock yet...

Anyway, where in Singapore can I get this?

Oh interesting. Thanks for the info. I am reading their facebook page now.

I prefer the Smart version due to smaller form factor for better portability.

Asus Taichi Ultrabook Review

It is related to the software component that allows seamless switching between the different display modes.

Most likely it could be a software bug that causes the CPU load to go to 100% causing the slow down...

So basically it's just the display re-acting slow than the whole system re-act slow?

if any of the sub system is software controlled, it will definitely have an impact on the overall performance... regardless as long as CPU goes to 100%, everything will slow down plus think what it will do to the battery?

I think your ending with a ? means you are also doubting? Haha. Well, I believe it just another display so I am guessing it won't affect that much. Unless asus are using OLED display.

we all know how much a resource and battery hog a windows system can get... even with a beefy battery, ultimately it will bring you to your knees when you cannot locate a free power source to power your notebook. Although I have much hope for the future, but it is now that I have massive doubts over the power ratings...
