The ghost touch was fixed after the second time I returned it for RMA
I am loving this device. Just got it from a friend, with a broken corner. Maybe that was the fix for the ghost touch, I doubt it, and certainly do not recommend breaking a corner. The specs are more than adequate for doing the basics, I mean it came with a full compliment of Office 2003 installed. That in it of itself is pretty great, but to know that I can slip a 32 or later even a 64GB microSD card, bonus for sure. Cannot say anything negative, pretty excited actually.
The issue with this tablet is that the touch screen at some point, start to act funny, like if someone were touching the screen; it touch by it self. Once it happen, you loose control of your screen; of the tablet. DON'T BUY IT. To use it, you will have to disable the touchscreen drivers and use it with the keyboard like if it was a laptop. There's no way to fix it. Even when you send back to AsusTek, they change the screen and it will work from hours to maybe like 2 month, then the problem come back. That's the ghost touch or phantom touch everybody talk about. When you contact asus, they send you instructions about how to reset your vivotab to factory settings. I did twice and it wont work. Some minutes after you reset the tablet, the ghost come back.
I have had this device over the past two years and this is my unbiased and sincere piece of advice I can give to you . PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.. DONT BUY THIS DEVICE. WHY? "GHOST TOUCH" this is the most crappy piece of shit one could ever buy
"Just discovered vivotablet these tablets are really reasonably priced think I'm going to buy on for my nephew"
If there was ever a good example of built obsolescence, the ASUS TF600T RT pad is it. After paying $600 for it, it has been the biggest waste of money on technology I have ever made.
So, caveat emptor avoid ASUS completely and learn to put up with microsoft. Neither one cares too much about the customers
you say ipad 4 is better and vivotab is outdated
ipad 4 has 2 cpu cores and 4 gpu cores
vivotab has 4 cpu cores and 12 gpu cores
If vivotab is last years tech then ipad 4 is from 3 or 4 years ago tech
P.S. they are both good tablets - which is better depends on what you are using it for.
With the RD OS this beautifully built machine is a lemon. It is slow and ponderous in operation, lacks decent apps, gets no support from ASUS, and gets no support from Microsoft. To have spent $600 on what promised to be a little gem only to realize after a relative short time that it was money down the drain is not good enough. These two companies should get together and work out how we can go to Android OS or Linux or something also that works.

totoni, 04 Aug 2013can ipad do the office works and print?Yes it can.
Can anybody help me, I have 3G mobile SIM card inserted but I dont have connection, do anybody knows how to set up connection with SIM card and to enter APN settings on this tablet? Need help fast :D thanks.
64GB, 2GB ram, good battery, extra keyboard, can connect to a mouse, external hard disc, memory stick, etc. Actually a very good piece of equipment. only downfall is the lack of apps, but it is increasing steadily. Pity it is using Windows RT 8.1 (upgraded recently) and not Windows 8.1
AVOID AT ALL COSTS. though it was a good buy how wrong can one person be. i have multiple computer devices with different operating systems. it is difficult to determine if my problems are from Windows RT or the unit itself, but OMG! it is useless and i don't want to sell it to anyone. would like to change operating systems but can't seem to find anyone that has done it successfully.
