Review Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro XE700T1C A02 Convertible
6 May 2013
Summary: Smart Business. Until now, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro has been available only to business customers. The manufacturer is now selling the convertible tablet through regular retail channels. We will see if the new offering is as convincing as its smaller brother with the Atom CPU.
Pros: Many input options..., ...and all of them work flawlessly, NFC, WiDi, and WWAN, Very bright high resolution display, Fast SSD with ample capacity, The different input options and the decent display.
Cons: Materials are not top-notch, Port selection is limited, No RJ45 jack, Both CPU and GPU don't achieve maximum frequency, RAM operates in singe-channel mode, Battery life is only average, Longer battery life and a better cooling system so that the components can avoid throttling.
Conclusion: There's a lot to like about the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T: it's fast, battery life is pretty good and it has a good full HD display with both multi-touch and a Wacom digitizer. The keyboard dock is in the box, so there's no hidden cost.
Pros: Very functional transformer design, Wacom digitizer with pen and WinTab drivers pre-installed. Pleasing full HD display, useful software utilities bundled.
Cons: Keyboard disconnects far too easily on ours, and doesn't have a secondary battery or ports beyond two USB 2.0 ports. Bland and plasticky design for an expensive product.
Summary: Overall, the $1,199 Pro 700T is the best Windows 8 tablet in this price range. It's not nearly as sexy or sturdy as the Surface Pro, but it offers longer battery life and makes better use of its integrated pen.
Summary: At an MRP of Rs 75,490, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is cheaper than Dell XPS 12 and Sony Vaio Duo 11 by more than Rs 10,000. Being better value for money is arguable because of the average build quality and ergonomics, but you get almost the same configuration for much less.
Excerpt: The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is a powerful tablet PC. With an i5-3337U processor, SSD storage and 4GB of RAM, the tablet is up to virtually any task. Windows 8 provides a full-featured experience with the ability to multitask with ease.
Summary: Vi er begejstrede for skærmens Full HD-opløsning, og lyden er fremragende. Der er tale om en hybridcomputer, hvor tastatur og skærm kan skilles ad, men den samlede pakke bliver lidt for tung og upraktisk.
Pros: Kommer med Full HD-opløsning, glimrende lyd samt mulighed for mobilt internet.
Cons: Det hybride design er en smule upraktisk, og den samlede pakke bestående af skærm og tastatur-dock er lidt for tung. Batteritiden kunne være bedre, og skærmen er en smule lyssvag.
Excerpt: Foi com entusiasmo que recebemos o Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro para teste. Há muito que queríamos fazer a análise / review de um destes "metade tablet metade PC", com Windows 8 que certamente vão fazer sucesso assim que se tornarem mais conhecidos.
