Review: Samsung ATIV Smart PC hits the clover trail

 

Samsung's ATIV Smart PC design is neither fish nor fowl. In its attempt to blur the line between tablet and PC, Samsung only confuses the issue.

Gorgeous display with responsive touchscreen ; Good performance as a tablet ; 2GB memory limits desktop application use

Extremely mediocre performance as a laptop

Using the Samsung ATIV Smart PC leaves me with mixed feelings. The touch experience is excellent, but the overall size seems to be just a bit too large for comfortable use as a tablet. The ATIV performs well as a tablet, however, and the touchscreen is...

Review Samsung ATIV Smart PC XE500T1C Convertible

 

Wintablet. Tablet + keyboard dock = too little for an innovation? We are testing Intel's tablet platform based on new hardware for the first time. Can the new Atom processor keep pace with a genuine 32-bit Windows 8?

Good input devices keyboard dock, Many interfaces, also via dock, Long battery life even with dock, Silent operation, Low waste heat, Bright screen, Good contrast, The basic idea: Add keys and work productively

Not much power for Windows users, No gaming power, Annoying brightness sensor, Loud touchpad buttons, Slow and too small flash memory, Memory capacity. The 64 GB is almost completely full just with Windows 8 and the recovery partition

Samsung ATIV Smart PC

Samsung XE500T1C Tablet Review

 

With the release of their Windows 8 operating system, Microsoft's aim was to start blurring the line between the experience of the user when using a tablet, phone or traditional desktop/laptop computing environment. Although a few different versions...

Great design; very thin and easily portable ; Convertable (tablet + laptop) ; Great feeling keyboard (fast to type on and very comfortable) ; 64gb of solid state storage is fast (and a MicroSDXD slot allows for easy expansion) ; Long battery life

Why can't the Canadian version also have the S Pen stylus like the American one ; The Atom processor won't be for everyone as it doesn't have the performance that a comparably priced full size laptop would ; View the discussion thread.blog comments...

Having little past experience with convertible tablets like the XE500T1C, I can honestly say that I found it far more useful than I would have expected. As a tablet, the XE500T1C is quite large with it’s 11.6” screen, but that made it all the more...

Samsung ATIV 500T Smart PC

 

Good battery life, bright and colorful touchscreen, has a digital Wacom pen, relatively light, can run X86 Windows 7 apps

A bit slow, especially given the price bracket. Keyboard dock connection flaky

The Samsung ATIV 500T is in a difficult position. On the one hand, it's more versatile than Windows RT, Android and iOS tablets, but it's also considerably less powerful than most notebooks and convertibles on the market running more capable AMD and...

Samsung Ativ Smart PC 500T (XE500T1C-A01AU) hybrid tablet

 

An 11.6in hybrid tablet with a digitiser pen and long battery life

Great battery life ; Comes with a digitiser pen ; USB port on the tablet

Dock hinge could be a little stronger ; Adaptive brightness setting too sensitive ; Low storage capacity

Samsung's Ativ Smart PC 500T is a decent Windows 8-bsed hybrid laptop that's suitable for basic operations. It can be used equally well as a tablet or laptop, and it has a long battery life. We just wish it had a better storage capacity for the price.
