Among Intel-Core-powered Windows 8 hybrids, the $1,199 Wi-Fi version of the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 700T is one of our favorites because of the versatile S Pen, handy Samsung apps (including a Start-menu replacement) and sharp 1080p display. The addition of 4G LTE and a slightly faster CPU would seem to sweeten the deal, but $1,599 is a lot to spend for these upgrades, especially when the LTE speeds aren't that fast.

The Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro 700T combines plenty of processing power with better-than-expected battery life. It has some nice touches, but misses the mark in some ways. Ultimately, one would expect more solidity and polish in a system of this class.

As an Ultrabook, the Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro is a little thick and heavy, and it skimps on ports and battery life. As a tablet, it's a great Windows 8 tab with an excellent screen that's powerful, well balanced in your hands and very responsive to touch. But what will really sell the Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro is that you can go from one to the other in seconds, without being disappointed in either. You won't draw the same kind of attention as you do when you're carrying a Surface Pro, but if the kickstand isn't for you and you can stand the trackpad, Samsung has a compromise that doesn't make too many concessions.

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is a powerful Windows 8 device. It is really a tablet rather than a laptop as Samsung wishes to portray it. Its powerful Core i5 dual-core CPU and 128 GB hard drive ensure a speedy and lag-free performance even with multi-tasking. The 11.6" bright Full HD touchscreen with great viewing angles is also very responsive. Thanks to a pair of decent speakers, the multimedia performance is also good. Ergonomics has been adequately taken care of by the keyboard and touchpad. While the design is not bad, it is not innovative either, and makes it appear like a device meant more for business users rather than a general consumer. Battery life is not better than a standard netbook if you are a heavy user, but you can push it to a decent 7.5 hours with power management. The Samsungindiastore.com website mentions that it is now available with a special offer of a free wireless touch mouse that costs Rs 4000. While it is still quite expensive at Rs 75,500, this seems to be a better buy when compared to the more expensive Sony VAIO Duo 11.

In terms of performance and battery-life, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T is similar to our current Editors' Choice, the Microsoft Surface Windows 8 Pro, though the Surface Pro stays our top pick for its innovative design. As a follow-up to the Series 7 Slate (700T1A), the ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T is more than capable, replacing a desktop dock with a laptop-style docking keyboard that lets you take your productivity on the road, and offering a combination of performance and battery life that's hard to ignore.

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is a great Hybrid tablet / laptop. You will be able to use it as a desktop replacement for work and home use. I am enjoying the ability to have the 11.6-inch display with 1980×1080 resolution. Text is very clear on the display. Using the split screen while you work on a Word document or browse the web is another plus with 11.6-inch screen. Performance is great with 4GB RAM and haven’t noticed any slowdowns. The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T sells for $1,199. Price will vary.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
