Skip The iPad Mini 3 – Grab An Asus ZenPad S 8 Instead

This is really cool! I really like the look of this tablet. Not sure I will be getting one but still... looks good.

“Luxury on your terms.”

This is the tagline that Asus used for its new tablet offering, the ZenPad 8.

At 6.9mm in thickness, it’s 0.6mm thinner than the iPad Mini 3, and 14 grams lighter at 317g. With the dimensions 203.2 x 134.5 x 6.9 mm versus the iPad Mini’s 200 x 134.7 x 7.5mm, the thinner and lighter Asus ZenPad S 8 promises to bite into Apple’s tablet sales, and with a vengeance.

The entry-level Asus ZenPad S 8 Z580C comes in at $199, while the higher-end Z580CA-C1 will be priced at $299. Still a far cry from the iPad Mini’s lowest-priced model, which has a price tag of $399.

At $199, the Android 5.0 Lollipop tablet is powered by a Quad-Core Intel Atom Z3530, boosted by 2GB of RAM. This entry-level offering is powerful enough, that Liliputing’s Mike Cane observes that Asus may well have “embarrassed” Samsung by creating a “far better” Android Tablet than the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 at a lower price.” The bang for the buck may well be this model’s selling point.
