The IT Nerd Award For The Best Tablet Goes To: Asus Memo Pad 8 (ME181C)


Choosing a winner in this category was hard. Asus has a full suite of tablets that run Windows 8.1 and Android. Examples of this are the Asus Memo Pad 8 (ME181C) and the Asus VivoTab Note 8. Plus they have convertible tablet/ultraportable notebooks such as the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C (Model K010)Asus Transformer Book T100, and the Asus Transformer Book TX300. But one interesting non-Asus choice that crossed my desk was the Alcatel Onetouch Pop 8 which unlike the Asus products, serves up HSPA connectivity to go alongside WiFi connectivity. That’s a very extensive list of tablets to choose from. But at the end of the day, one tablet stood out to me. That one was the Asus Memo Pad 8 (ME181C) for the following reasons:

  • Of all the tablets that I reviewed this year, it had the best camera by far.
  • It had the best screen as it was bright and had a great viewing angles. Not to mention that at 8″, you get a bit more screen real estate to work with.
  • It has 10 hours of battery life which is outstanding.
  • It’s priced at $299 CDN which makes it more than affordable.

If you’re in the market for a tablet that doesn’t come from Apple, I’d give the Asus Memo Pad 8 (ME181C) a very good look. It’s a very deserving winner of the best tablet award.
