Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T Review and Price Analysis – The All-Inclusive Tablet
Tech lovers were anxiously waiting for Samsung to release its all-inclusive tablet, ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T. Their wish came true in the summer of 2012 when the device was made available on the market, yet very few people got the opportunity to test the smart PC. Find My Price has confronted the tablet with other products on the market, so readers can get a clear picture of what the device is really capable of.
Since Samsung pays a lot of attention to design, it is fair to say that the ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T is a good reflection of the South Korean company’s credo. We were all impressed by the sleek and glossy appearance of the super-tablet. The model we have analyzed was black, but there are other shades available on the market, including the polished metallic version that is very popular at present.
- Great overall performance
- Great design
- Very high resolution screen
- Very expensive ($1069.99)
- The design of the keyboard may annoy users
The design of the detachable keyboard has suffered several modifications, as well. It is clear to us that the company wanted to slim down the device, by significantly diminishing the size of the keyboard. The difference between the tablet and the keyboard may appear somewhat cumbersome. When we first used the two components together, we had the impression that the Smart PC was about to tilt backwards. Luckily, it was just an impression and we soon got used to the new shape of the device.
Needless to say, the screen is probably one of the greatest assets of the Smart PC. The colors are bright and vivid and the images are true to life. The 11.6 inches display will not allow you to perform highly advanced work tasks as the tablet is more appropriate for reading, writing texts and playing games, but it will deliver great quality images thanks to the 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution.
The 1.7 GHz Core i5-3317U is a middle-class processor that has had very good performance during out testing. It features two cores that have two threads, thus giving the impression that the processor has four cores. While the processor is not compatible with highly demanding games, it is, nevertheless, great for low power consumption. The 4 GB memory is more than enough for the activities that you will develop with the help of the Smart PC. The device is very fast and you can take up numerous activities at the same time without any lags.
The tablet features Windows 8 operating system. It has also been endowed with an S-Pen that has had remarkable performance during tests. Its sensitivity has been significantly improved giving owners the possibility to add input without mistakes.
