  1. So has the active digitizer failures been fixed on the Asus VivoTab Note 8? Seems like it’s the only game in town when it comes to an 8″ Windows 8 tablet with a stowable Wacom pen.

    1. See https://forum.tabletpcreview.com/asus/61338-vivotab-note-8-pen-stopped-working-2.html It appears that for the most part, the Asus VivoTab Note 8’s problems have been fixed. If you want to be absolutely sure, then you’d have to buy a Lenovo ThinkPad X2xx Tablet PC or a Fujitsu, but they’re pretty expensive. Some of the HPs with active digitizer are using Synaptics’, just like Dell, and people are reporting problems with the Synaptics gear.

      Too bad Lenovo isn’t making their less expensive Windows slates with active digitizers available in the US.

      1. Thank you for the link and information! I’ll probably bite on this sale then. Seems like I always buy older devices due to issues early in the production (ie. the beta releases). Assuming the issues actually get fixed.

        1. You’re welcome and good luck. I used to buy on the bleeding
          edge of the product life cycle, but got really baldy burned by
          the following:

          – I got older and am getting tired of having to adapt to yet another
          new thing, especially when the new thing didn’t offer something
          compelling over my existing thing.

          – you’re right, the initial production usually have bugs. Unfortunately,
          due to the compressed product life cycles, you’d be hard pressed to
          find any bug-free products anymore, as mfrs will postpone bug fixes
          to new products The saying “You can tell the pioneers by the arrows
          on their backs” holds true here.

          – the initial product is usually the most expensive one, the 2nd
          batch is usually done for cost reduction, the third (if there is one)
          to keep ahead of the competitors. The batches used to go once
          a year, but sometimes you’ll get a 2nd batch within a few months
          of the 1st. See Apple’s fiasco when it introduced a new iPhone
          within a few months of the prior version. In Microsoft’s case,
          “The third time’s the charm” used to hold, but now it’s skip every
          other version. The depreciation in tech products way exceeds
          that of cars. Usually the changes from one generation to the next
          are incremental, it’s rare to see revolutionary change anymore,
          so a safe bet is to skip a generation or two.

          – Due to competition and compressed product life cycles, buying
          on the trailing edge ain’t so bad. You get the benefit of knowing
          what the problems are, whether the mfr has addressed them, whether
          the product is a hit (and follow-ons are coming), what competitors
          and copycats are doing. Again unfortunately, devices are being
          treated by toasters. When they break, you don’t fix ’em, just toss
          ’em and hopefully the next one you buy wont’ have as many problems,
          and present you with better functionality at a more affordable price.

  2. The Asus VivoTab Note 8 has been at the $229 (64 GB) and $199
    (32 GB) price for arpund a month now.

    1. That’s good. Then I haven’t missed the sale because I didn’t know about the price drop until I read this article.
