Asus Memo Pad 9 Makes For a Perfect Budget Gift

asus memo pad 8

I realize I cover beauty on Musings of a Muse but I couldn’t get through the daily grind without my tech and I thought the Asus Memo Pad 9 was a perfect inexpensive gift for those of you who dabble in beauty, blogging, and life!

This slick android tablet is lightweight, travel friendly, and sports a a gorgeous 8 inch HD IPS display. The quad powered processor makes for speedy multitasking whether you’re taking a quick pic of some new makeup item to upload to Instagram or if you’re blogging on the go. It’s loaded with 16 gigs which gives you plenty of room for music, photos, and more plus a micro SD card slot allows you to easily expand your memory.

The battery life?

Awesome at around 7 and a half hours with heavy use and 9 with lighter usage!

I have an iPad mini and an regular iPad but the Asus Memo Pad takes the cake for travel as it’s incredibly thin and super lightweight with a nice woven backing that allows me to grip it comfortably. It comes pre-loaded with some a host of Asus suite apps such as an audio wizard to fine tuning sound for music and movie playback. It runs Asus’s Zen UI which is your basic Android OS but feels a lot less bloated and a heck of a lot faster than other Android tablets I’ve used in the past. The IPS display weights in at 1280 x 800 making for the perfect size for gaming and the sharp crisp picture is ideal for entertainment options such as sitting in bed and binge watching Sons of Anarchy!

Possibly the nicest aspect is the $129.99 price tag, making it a rather nice bit of tech for not a lot of money.

Whether you use your tablet for e-mail, social media, updating your beauty blog on the go, or uploading selfies to Instagram the Asus Memo Pad 9 makes for a perfect budget gift!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.
