Asus has become a household name for budget tablets which don’t skimp on quality. Its partnership with Google has been instrumental in the process. It has just launched a new tablet, the MemoPad 8 at the Computex 2014 with a 64-bit quad core processor. It is being touted as the world’s lightest 8 inch tablet courtesy of the fact that it weighs just 299 grams.
