Reviews for the Samsung ATIV Tab 3

84% Review Samsung ATIV Tab 3 XE300TZC-K01DE Convertible | Notebookcheck
Low performance, high price. A really good office laptop is available for 650 Euros (~$878), just like the ATIV Tab with a keyboard dock. Can this concept of an ultra-mobile work and Internet station succeed at this price?
Hands on: Samsung Ativ Tab 3 review
Source: Techradar English
In the case of the Ativ Tab 3, we get the feeling that could be about to change. The Windows 8 market is quietly gaining traction, and the sheer number of extras on offer here make it an attractive proposition. We're awaiting a price before making any rash calls but we were quietly impressed with the Ativ Tab 3, despite the cheap feeling plastic and flexible chassis.

All in all, Samsung is upping the Windows 8 tablet game by introducing its ATIV Tab 3. While it may not have the most powerful internal specs, its perceived performance is surprisingly quick and responsive. The ATIV Tab 3 is expected to be released in early August for $699 along with an included Bluetooth keyboard.

Tablet is very good, and the most important thing is certainly its keyboard that can be connected to tablet via Bluetooth connection. A good quality characterizes the chiclet keyboard that exceeds most of what we have seen recently. Keystroke and resistance is perfect for a longer work, and if you are buying a tablet for work and long periods of typing, you will not make a mistake. As far as configuration, this average model offers 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB SSD, but the capacity can easily be expanded using MicroSD memory cards. Regarding the standard usage of the Windows 8 system, everything is beyond reproach and everything is working smoothly; however, you should not expect that processing of larger images or other demanding jobs would be so smooth. Samsung ATIV Tab 3 is a good tablet that comes with good keyboard, it is intended for the average consumers for everyday office work, Web surfing and multimedia, so the price is fully justified.
Positive: Very compact size and light; full Windows 8; additional keyboard.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3650: Integrated processor graphics card (e.g. in the Atom N2800) without dedicated memory. Most likely based on a PowerVR design similar to the GMA 500 but with higher clock rates.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

Z2760: Soc with integrated dual core Atom processor clocked at up to 1.8 GHz (only Turbo?), a PowerVR SGX 545 based GPU clocked at 533 MHz and a dual channel LPDDR2-800 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.6 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.
