Asus Tablets Compared

The Asus line of Eee, Transformer, Vivo, Memo and ZenPad products includes a variety of computing devices. Asus tablets encompass that core philosophy of “Easy to learn, Easy to work, Easy to play.”

Asus ZenPad 10

The ZenPad 10 was a budget device that packed in a ton of functionality at a great low price. Although it didn’t do anything exceptionally well, it was a solid all-rounder that met with a positive reception.

Asus ZenPad C 7.0

While Asus had always been a respected consumer electronics outfit, the company as a whole had failed to replicate Apple’s chic appeal. The new line of ZenPad tablets aimed to change the perception that Asus was all substance and no style. The Asus ZenPad C 7.0 in particular was an appealing powerhouse in a small package that had looks to go with its considerable computing muscle.

Asus Transformer Book T100

With an included keyboard dock and a very solid quad-core Atom Z3740 Bay Trail processor, the ASUS Transformer Book T100 was a clear choice for users who needed productivity from their tablets. The 1,366-by-768 pixel display, however, was a disappointing mess of inaccurate colors, over-reflective panels and modest resolution, and it limited the T100’s versatility and usefulness.

Asus MeMo Pad FHD 10

Featuring a dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor and 1920-by-1200 pixel display, the ASUS MeMo Pad FHD 10 served as a fine introduction to the world of ten-inch tablets. It couldn’t deliver nearly the same performance as high-end devices, though it was able to handle routine tasks smoothly. The display was full high-definition and, while there was little to complain about, it didn’t wow anyone like the ultra-high resolution displays found in more premium devices.

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7

Much like the ten-inch MeMo Pad FHD 10, the seven-inch ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 was an inoffensive, uninspiring device. If you didn’t expect earth-shattering performance or a brilliant display, the MeMo Pad HD 7 did what it was intended to do. A quad-core, 1.2-gigahertz processor and 1,280-by-800 pixel display gave you plenty of tablet for the budget price, and the inclusion of expandable storage via a microSDHC slot was also a nice touch.

Asus/Google Nexus 7 II (FHD 2013)

This new, enhanced version of the Google Nexus 7 was launched on the 30th of July. New 7 inch Nexus sported better screen resolution, a faster CPU, and came with the latest Android 4.3 and had more storage than the original (2012) Nexus model.

Asus MeMO Pad Smart

The Memo Pad tablet came in 3 distinct colors: white, blue and pink. Its specifications were very similar to the Transformer Pad TF-300 models. The Memo Pad was slightly lighter than the TF-300 and shipped with a later Android version (4.1).

Asus Vivo Tab Smart

The Asus VivoTab Smart tablet came in two colors: black and white. An additional keyboard and cover were available for purchase separately. The tablet attached to the cover magnetically, and the keyboard could attach to the cover’s inside flap.

Asus Vivo Tab RT

The Asus Vivo Tab RT was one of the first tablets based on the Microsoft RT operating system. The tablet was powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad-core processor and sported a super-bright 600 nit IPS+ display. The tablet was light, easy to hold and had a long battery life.

Asus Transformer Infinity TF700

The Infinity sported a higher clock-speed than all previous models; a higher resolution screen than most other tablets; and a keyboard dock that acted as a second battery. The inclusion of Super IPS mode with the 1900×1200 resolution gave the TF700 one of the best displays on an Android device.

Asus Transformer Pad TF300

The 300 was the official upgrade to the original Transformer. It lacked the LED flash and Super IPS mode of the Prime.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime TF201

The Prime introduced the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor to the Transformer line and was the first to use it in general. An updated 8-megapixel camera delivered better pictures and featured the Super IPS mode for better visibility outdoors.

Asus Eee Pad Slider SL101

The Slider was very similar to the Transformer, but with one difference. The Slider had keyboard that could – you guessed it – slide out. It was the first Android tablet with such a feature.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer TF101

The original Pad Transformer was an Android powered tablet with 1GB of memory and a dual-core Nvidia Tegra processor. It had a 10.1-inch IPS display and came with a docking keyboard. Although released with Android 3, it wa later updated to 4.0.3.

Asus Eee Slate EP121

The Slate EP121 was a Windows powered tablet with a full Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM. It had a 12.1-inch display and held the distinction of being one of the only Windows powered tablets in Asus’ Eee line. It is followed by the B121 slate.
