Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro Review
2 July 2013
Excerpt: Hybrid laptops seems to be the mantra for all laptop manufacturers these days. It’s inevitable to not come out with one to counter competition. That’s the reason why we’re now witnessing a sudden flow of these convertible devices. Samsung’s offering in this segment is the ATIV series, which currently comprises two models for the Indian market—ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T and Smart PC 500T1C.
Tablet/laptop hybrids are here, and the ATIV Tab leads Samsung's charge.

Conclusion: If you find yourself wishing that your tablet could handle all the stuff you'd normally be doing on a laptop, or want a tablet with a large screen for use around the house, the Samsung ATIVsmart PC Pro is a great start. The Windows 8 Pro tablet/laptop hybrids are going through some growing pains, but Samsung made this unit with enough tools (like the S-pen) to handle some of those issues fairly well.
Summary: Among Intel-Core-powered Windows 8 hybrids, the $1,199 Wi-Fi version of the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 700T is one of our favorites because of the versatile S Pen, handy Samsung apps (including a Start-menu replacement) and sharp 1080p display. The addition of 4G LTE and a slightly faster CPU would seem to sweeten the deal, but $1,599 is a lot to spend for these upgrades, especially when the LTE speeds aren't that fast.
Pros: Powerful performance, Integrated S-Pen, Engaging Samsung apps, Vivid 1080p display, Fast boot time, Dock for stylus
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. We're not too keen on the black plastic casing that looks more netbook than $1,200 Ultrabook and Samsung needs to get the issue with keyboard disconnects sorted out (hopefully a few months from now, only working docks will be on the...
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.
Excerpt: Annonse DinSide Det har gått litt tregt, men nå begynner PC-er med berøringsfølsomme skjermer å fylle PC-hyllene i elektronikkbutikken. Årsaken er naturligvis Windows 8 og det nye Modern UI -grensesnittet som er optimalisert for fingerberøring. Samtidig vokser det fram en ny kategori hybrid-PC-er, som er maskiner som med enkle håndgrep kan gjøres om til nettbrett.
Pros: Fullblods PC og nettbrett i ett, flott skjerm, kan kjøre alle Windows-programmer, godt tastatur, solid utførelse, leveres med Pro-utgaven av Windows 8, GPS og 3G-støtte
Cons: Høy pris, tyngre enn vanlige nettbrett og ultrabooks, framtung, noe viftesus, få tilkoblingspunkter, kortere batteritid enn for eksempel iPad, styreplate reagerer ikke alltid like godt
