Hi, Can you please dig into it a bit more and find out the exact date of retail for Australian retailers for the Actual Vivotab, not the RT version. This means the Vivotab tf810c and vivotab smart ME400c. I have seen some retailers stock the RT version of the vivotab in December and was not impressed.
