Staples has the Asus Vivotab Smart ME400C tablet on sale for $449.99 this week. Use the $100 off all Windows tablets coupon to bring price down to $349.99.

This tablet has the regular Windows 8 OS, not the RT version typically found on tablets in this price range. It is a 10.1" tablet and has 64gb of memory. Lowest price tablet with full Windows 8 and the coupon makes it hotter.

I would rather wait for one with at least an i3 processor and 4GB of memory. This one feels like my Asus Eee PC netbook purposely crippled by MS that a netbook cannot have more than 2GB.

The atom has better battery life than an i3. I have yet to run across something I want to do on my win8 tablet that the atom can't handle. For me the win8 tablet is not for doing heavy lifting, it's for light duty and I prefer the longer battery life vs cpu power in this context. It also kills a netbook in terms of user experience and functionality.

Isn't the Lynx K3011 a better option?

$10 less, bigger screen, same processor, and USB OTG functionality right out of the box?

I'm shopping tabs right now and the Lynx seems to have a light edge.

Using a tab for a camera isn't one of my intended purposes, so the (lack of a) rear camera isn't a shopped feature.
(and the uber-douchebags holding up ipads and tablets at kids' soccer games and concerts REALLY need to stop)

It depends on your needs. The differences are subtle but after doing some research here's what I found:

Asus advantages:
Battery lasts about 1 hr. longer than the Lenovo
32GB of cloud storage for 3-years
Corning fit glass (NOT Gorilla Glass, but the same stuff used on the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy S2)
8MP auto-focus back camera


Lenovo advantages:
Larger display (11.6" vs. 10.1")
Brighter display (400 nits vs. 350 nits)
Thinner (9.48mm vs. 9.7mm)
Optional 2-yr warranty (at extra cost)
$50 less than the Asus

Both OEM keyboards are pathetic but that's easily remedied with an aftermarket Bluetooth keyboard and battery.
