ASUS MeMO Pad 8 — Review

The MeMO Pad 8 is an interesting device, at least to me it is, because I’ve never used an 8 inch tablet before. I wonder if it will be too big to hold in one hand. I wonder if the material that it’s made of will be grippy and soft to the touch. I wonder if the performance will be[Read More…]

ASUS Chromebox — Review

ASUS Chromebox — Review

We’ve reviewed quite a few Chromebooks on Ausdroid now, and while the hardware generally differs a little bit, in the sense of keyboard quality, screen quality and battery life, they’re generally very similar; screen resolution is invariably the same, and ChromeOS is ChromeOS regardless of the platform it’s running on.

Being a writer for Ausdroid has it’s perks, reviewing devices that you wouldn’t necessarily otherwise buy or have access to is one of them. The Asus Transformer Pad TF701 arived in my life for about 2 days now and generally speaking I’m fairly impressed, cosmetically it’s quite pleasing and has a very slick, “cool” look to it but it’s not[Read More…]
