    Considering that to get a replacement charging/OTG microUSB port for my 64GB M80TA is EUR80, should I just forgo fixing it and getting this new tablet with KB+PEN for US$250 ??

    Sounds pretty nice, especially at that price. Too bad it won't fit in my pockets like the M80TA.

    I haven't seen anything about the stylus: what tech does it use, and are there any user reviews out there?

    The pen uses N-Trig like the Surface Pro 3/4. Youtube users show that the Surface Pen works on this Asus model.

    I bit the bullet and purchased a manufacturer refurbished one of these on eBay today, a 128GB model (which was at the same price as the 64GB new).

    With the Full USB 3.0 port, HDMI out, Keyboard included, 4GB+ RAM, this is what the VivoTab Note should have had.

    Reviewers say the performance is not that great, but I remember running a Windows XP virtual machine on the 2GB M80TA and it was adequate... so I would manage my expectations of performance with this one.

    Changed the thread title to something more appropriate and less "click-bait."

    BenGman - fix your unit. There's nothing quite like it being made presently.

    There, the advice you've been spamming for. :)

    It is now permanently $229.
    Maybe someone can update the thread title?

    Have now had this for a couple of weeks:

    Great device and form factor.
    It works but it is slower than I thought it would be. I have a Dell venue 8 Pro (same screen resolution but previous gen z3xxx Atom) and the Dell feels faster than this Asus. Really surprised by this since I thought the z8xxx in this should be faster. WTF did intel do? I also want to say the eMMC memory is maybe slower - will have to run a benchmark test.

    Otherwise, this is the perfect form factor size wise and the inclusion of a normal USB, USB micro (for charging, though this should be USB C in 2017), micro HDMI and SD card slot should be mandatory on all tablets of this size. I also really like the fingerprint reader and the kickstand.
    I may try the Samsung Galaxy Book 10 - while it is much faster, I am not sure that makes up for all the other stuff it is lacking.

    The pen is much better than the $#%@ pen on the Dell Venues.

    Aside from speed, I would say that Asus hit it out of the ballpark.
