It looks like Microsoft isn’t the only one abandoning old stock of their RT tablets. Asus has now taken to eBay to offload some “refurbished” VivoTab RT devices for the low price of $289. Truth be told, the VivoTab 10.1-inch is a really nice device and if you’re looking for something compact but elegant, this may be a deal for you.
The VivoTab RT features a 10.1 1366x768 Super IPS+ display, 32GB of storage and is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core processor. It has 2GB of RAM, expandable memory via microSD and Bluetooth 4.0 on board and yet only weighs 1.16 pounds, making it the ideal device for tossing in your bag. We’ve always been partial to the 10.1-inch design as it’s small enough to handle, but large enough to have a good sized display.
The bad news is that Asus has publicly commented that they are done with Windows 8 RT, so while you may get a deal on this tablet, it’s probably the last from the company until the RT market shifts.
