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.

Samsung ATIV Tab 3 Hands-On

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.

Samsung ATIV Tab 3-XE300TZC-K01FR

The Samsung ATIV Tab 3-XE300TZC-K01FR is a Windows-8 tablet with an included Bluetooth keyboard. Possibly the wave of the future, this is a great device for work and entertainment. The 10.1-incher with Intel Atom Z2760 processor and 2 GB of RAM may not be able to handle heavier tasks or too much multitasking. But light word processing and web browsing run problem free. Weighing in at 1 kg with the included keyboard, it is a great all in one travel device. Despite the slightly unexpectedly thick dimensions, especially when bundled with the keyboard accessory, it is still an ultra portable device that should fit in most bags with ease. The battery life is decent, and can easily last a full work day and even beyond. The somewhat limited 30 GB of storage can be expanded by up to 64GB with a microSD card.

The included keyboard accessory is surprisingly full-sized, but it lacks a touchpad. So, users will need to either resort to the touchscreen or the included stylus. The touchscreen is responsive and a pleasure to use, but the stylus has a cumbersome size. Fans of the Galaxy Note 10.1 stylus will find this stylus to be too small for comfortable use. Overall, this machine is regretfully underpowered and does not offer enough for the price.

Samsung reviews


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

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.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

» 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.

Intel Core i5:

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.


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.

0.3 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.

1.046 kg:


79.38%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
