IPRO Livepad 8.9 Windows 8.1 Tablet 01

A typical Intel Atom-based Windows 8.1 tablet in the market does not usually come with a full HD display. After all, such tablet is usually made for the budget segment of the market and having lower resolution display would tone its price tag down.

But not for IPRO Livepad 8.9 though as it is actually equipped with an 8.9-inch WUXGA IPS display. That’s 1920 x 1200 resolution, to be exact and believe it or not: the tablet still costs under RM 1000.
