Vido’s recently released an upgrade of their W10 Tablet PC, the VIDO W10 Elite. This release comes with some huge upgrades, the RAM goes from 2GB to 4GB and from 32GB, to a massive 128GB ROM. I am not sure why they released this device under the W10 banner as the improvements are huge as they are in number. The only thing they have in common is the screen size at 10.1″. The device looks like the Microsoft Surface 3, and boy do you get some bang for your buck with the VIDO W10 Elite. We thought we would give this device the once over and report back to you guys on our findings.

It also gives room to expand with support for 64GB SD Card.The LPDDR3 gives the device a much stronger performance overall and is does extremely well in energy efficiency.The very large eMMC 128GB storage runs much more fluidly, with no lag at all and it is apparent when playing games etc.

Windows 10 OS
The VIido W10 Elite is not a dual boot device runs on the WIndows 10 OS, which , since bringing back the popular start menu from Windows 7 has become a bit more user friendly. I found a device is much better with the single OS and am very glad Vido didnt venture there and went only for Windows 10.
The VIDO W10 Elite is a very stable, fast and efficient tablet, By adding a keyboard you will have yourself a very capable laptop/Tablet.It is very much comparable to the likes of Microsoft Surface series tablets in terms of specs, and at $391 the Vido W10 Elite offers flagship tablet specs.
