ASUS ME-400 Windows 8 Pro Tablet: Hands-On (Video)

Advertisement

Windows 8 tablets were all over the CES this year, and with largely similar specs, after a while they tend to blend together. That’s not the case for the ASUS ME-400, though, which caught our eye by combining the light weight and slim design of a Windows RT tablet with the software flexibility you only see with Windows 8 Pro.

Despite running the full-fledged OS on an Intel Atom processor, the 10-inch ME-400 manages to deliver an RT-level price tag, and will only run you about $500 – that’s what Microsoft wants for the Surface RT.

That Atom chip means that the ME-400 won’t be as brisk to use as an 8 Pro tablet running a more powerful processor, but if you can live with that, the light weight and slim build just might make up for the performance hit.
