Reviews for the Samsung ATIV 905S3G-K02UK
What were Samsung thinking of when they designed this notebook? Perhaps it is aimed at those who desire portability, ease of use and modest computing power while wanting something bigger than a tablet with a keyboard, all at a reasonable price. Anyone upgrading from a netbook to this model would appreciate the larger screen and much better responsiveness. Samsung have also catered for both those who want a touchscreen notebook and for those who don't. They could well be watching the sales statistics with interest given Intel's view that touchscreen is the only way forward for the smaller notebooks.
