Samsung ATIV Smart PC Review

0. phoneArena posted on 13 Feb 2013, 07:32

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 our Samsung ATIV Smart PC review unit, which on top of that ships with a keyboard dock included in the price...

I'd rather take the Surface with the high price and shorter battery life. Atom processors are just unimpressive at this point. What a disappointing device.
