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.

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


Tablets with the frugal Intel Atom processor are supposed to bring you the best of all worlds – a full Windows 8 operating system, but in a slim and light slate that will last as long as an ARM-based machine. These should be the main selling points of...

Battery life comparable to an ARM-based tablet ; USB port and software drivers allow hooking up any peripheral ; S Pen functionality

Expensive ; Intel Atom processor is only for light Windows programs ; No extra battery in the keyboard dock

Jack of all trades or a master of none? The Samsung ATIV Smart PC, as other Intel Atom-based tablets with Windows 8 sound great on paper – thin and light, they are capable to run legacy Windows programs, and have battery life comparable with iOS or...

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 this the combination of freedom, performance, and battery life we've been waiting for, or are we left wanting?

Hands-on: A Windows 8 tablet with a detachable keyboard and metallic finish.

The Samsung ATIV smart PC will be released later this year.

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

A huge disappointment: the Ativ Smart PC is woefully underpowered and cripplingly, hilariously overpriced. An iPad, Nexus 10 or Ultrabook would do a much better job, and you'd pay a lot less money for the privilege. Samsung's device just isn't good...

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

We'll be interested to see whether Samsung's Windows 8 Ativ line, announced at IFA this year, makes it to the land down under.
