The Asus in LogiTab mode

Folks who visit this site frequently may know that I am selling the Asus Z580CA tablet I own, but I decided to take it out today, on my day off and put it to good use.

This post is being written from my top-secret location, which just happens to have great food and really quick WiFi. The Asus of course is working just as one would expect from a 4gb ram tablet with a mouse and keyboard running via wireless/Bluetooth.

I am reaching a point where I am almost considerng not selling the damned thing, because it is so fast and does so many things so well.  I have lowered the price to well below what anyone would pay for a new one and as yet, not a single offer on this fine piece of technology.


However, it takes great pictures, never stutters, even playing games and it does make an admirable backup server. Sure, I would love to get that super cool Windows 10/Android dual-boot tablet this week, but I can wait a bit, since this particular tablet absolutely screams performance wise.

So let us go over those great specs one more time:

  • Intel Quad Core CPU at 2.3 Ghz
  • 64gb onboard storage
  • microSD slot with 128gb capability, (I am using a 64gb Samsung microSD card)
  • 4gb of ram
  • 2048 x 1536, 8 inch  IPS display
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • WiFi a/b/g/n/ac
  • Android 5.0 (yes, this needs an update to Android 6!)
  • average battery life about 6 hrs

The build quality of this device is great, it is super thin and it is relatively lightweight. I am still rather puzzled by the lack of interest, especially since I am am selling it at more than $100 off what Amazon is asking and I am throwing in a case and a USB C to standard USB adapter.

Those are my thoughts for today,
