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.
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).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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.
This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
