Samsung Ativ Smart PC review

 

It's hybrids galore as Samsung gears up for Windows 8

Great battery life ; Precise and useful S-Pen ; Full Windows 8 compatibility ; Fast boot/wake

Woefully underpowered ; Cripplingly overpriced ; Small usable storage ; Trackpad often unresponsive

So, Microsoft and Intel really want to get into tablets. We know this not just because they've told us, but because they're really throwing everything at it.

Samsung Ativ Smart PC pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

With Windows 8 being the talk of the town (in some quarters), we're not surprised to see a Windows 8 tablet or two from Samsung. But this isn't a just

Samsung Ativ Smart PC 500T review

 

An Intel Atom powered notebook and tablet hybrid

Brilliant vibrant display, excellent battery life

Keyboard is cheap and plastic feeling

The Samsung Ativ Smart PC 500T is a rather decent addition to the selection of hybrid and convertible laptops on the market, offering moderate but substantial performance for a relatively low price.

Samsung's ATIV Smart PC 500T: An Atom-Based Windows 8 Tablet

 

Samsung takes Intel's Atom Z2760 SoC, the full version of Windows 8, and builds a tablet that begs to stay connected to its docking station. Is ...

Although Samsung markets its ATIV Smart PC 500T as a 64 GB tablet, a little more than 51 GB is user-accessible. And, once Windows 8 is installed, you're only left with 39 GB. There's another potential problem. Ever tried to use a 60 GB SSD on your...

Samsung ATIV Smart PC 700T (AT&T)

 

Heads up, mobile pros: Samsung's excellent ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T tablet has arrived on AT&T. Samsung keeps everything we loved about the $1,199 Wi-Fi edition -- including strong Core i5 performance, a full HD screen and an integrated S-Pen -- and adds...

Samsung ATIV Smart PC: Revisiting Clover Trail Convertibles

 

The Windows 8 tablet space at launch consisted exclusively of Tegra 3-based or Core i5/i7 ULV-based systems. That changed with the release of Krait and Clover Trail tablets like the ATIV Tab and Acer W510, respectively, but with 7W IVB and AMD Z60 on...

I used the ATIV Smart PC as my main system on the CES show floor. It worked out relatively well, though part of that was due to the fact that I didn’t actually spend much time using it there. My CES scheduling this year ended up in back-to-back-to-back...

Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

 

When a mobile carrier like AT&T picks up a device for sale that's as massive as the Samsung ATIV Smart PC with Windows 8, you've got to wonder who would be heading out to the same location they picked up their smartphone to pick up a PC. In this case...

This machine is a PC without a keyboard attached to it – while we’ve yet to see the keyboard attached for any long amount of time, we’re confident that the full experience will be somewhere between a mobile tablet and a full Ultrabook-type-situation....

Samsung ATIV Smart PC review (AT&T LTE)

 

More Info Samsung announces Series 5 and Series 7 Windows 8 tablets with S Pen apps, optional keyboards AT&T gets its hands on ASUS

Fast LTE speeds

Buggy performance ; Expensive, even on contract ; No pen support in the AT&T version ; AT&T isn't selling the keyboard dock yet ; Relatively heavy, unwieldy

Samsung's ATIV Smart PC holds promise as a Windows 8 hybrid, but the AT&T version is buggy and expensive with fewer features.
