Samsung ATIV SmartPC hands-on
With a cursory look at Samsung’s upcoming fall lineup for AT&T, it’s already stacked with many smartphones that are incoming very soon, but for those who are eager to move up to a full-fledged Windows 8 device in the near, they might want to keep an eye out for the Samsung ATIV SmartPC. Naturally, the star of the show with this one is the fact that it’ll be providing all the wealth of functionality attached with Windows 8 – with a trial version of Microsoft Office 2013 thrown into the mix as well to give users a solid dose of productivity on the go.

Indeed, for those who have never experienced Windows Phone beforehand, this Windows 8 tablet will surely be seen as somewhat alien and foreign, but thankfully enough, you can switch from its touch experience to the usual legacy Windows UI we’re all so familiar with. Specs-wise, there’s a lot to like about this bountiful beauty, as it features an 11.6” HD PLS display, dual-core 1.5GHz Intel Clover Trail processor, and 64GB of internal storage.

To further sweeten its load, it’s outfitted to offer connectivity to AT&T’s 4G LTE network, which means you can surf the web with blistering speeds in tow. On the Android side, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series has been a staple in the tablet world, so it’ll be interesting how this ATIV SmartPC will fare in the long run.

My opinion. I'm not a Samsung fan. But it seems Samsung get better design and more premium feelings in Windows device.

Folks this is the Windows 8 tablet to get if you intend to do any Windows 7, Vista, Or
Windows XP full blown PC/Laptop programs on. You will have the screen size to see what you are doing and more easily get you work done.

I agree too big for a 5 year old. But for most adults it will do just fine. IMHO. ^_~
