ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 Android tablet (preview)

The MeMo Pad FHD 10 is a competitively priced, 10in Android tablet with a full HD screen

Competitively priced Android devices are becoming more and more prevalent in the crowded tablet market, but most of these have small screen sizes. ASUS is aiming to change this with the MeMo Pad FHD 10, a 10in Android tablet with a full HD screen.

Described by ASUS as "the perfect tablet for full HD entertainment", the star of the show is clearly the MeMo Pad FHD's 10.1in IPS display, which has a resolution of 1920x1200. Although this resolution isn't as high as devices like the 4th Generation iPad and Google's Nexus 10, it still has a more than respectable pixel density of 226ppi. This means it is likely to display crisp and clear text with minimal visible aberrations.

Weighing 580g, the MeMO Pad FHD 10 is lighter than both the iPad and the Nexus 10, but is thicker than both at 9.5mm. ASUS produces both black and white variants in international markets, but the company will only sell the "silk white" model in Australia.

The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560 processor, has 2GB RAM and comes with 32GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot allows users to expand the storage.

Other features include a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera that doubles as a full HD, 1080p video recorder, a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera, and a non-removable lithium polymer battery that ASUS says will last for up to 10 hours of video playback.

The ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 runs the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean version of Android though ASUS does pre-load a number of its own apps. These include SuperNote Lite, and the ASUS Studio photo editing utility. There's also the addition of Miracast compatibility, which allows video to be streamed wirelessly to a compatible TV.

The MeMo Pad FHD 10 is 9.5mm thick, and has a microSD card slot for extra storage.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
