Samsung ATIV SmartPC hands-on
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.
Initial standouts with the Samsung ATIV SmartPC
1. For a tablet, it’s very chunky
2. Typical made Samsung device
3. It’s a full-fledged workhorse

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. ^_~
