Performance-wise, the Core m platform is getting better. A couple of years ago, I wouldn’t have considered one for my use (trade shows…), but now it’s getting “good enough” for my needs. Keep in mind that these are still ultra-light computers who do have performance trade-offs, so avoid heavy multitasking and heavy workloads.

While this may be Samsung’s first try at making a hybrid 2-in-1, it doesn’t feel like it. The TabPro S does almost everything that Microsoft’s Surface 4 Pro does better, and while the Korean manufacturer’s offering doesn’t extend beyond offering Intel’s Core M processor (the Surface 4 Pro has more powerful Core i5 and i7 variants available) the hardware on tap is more than enough for its intended users. If you spend a lot of time outside the office and want a light and capable machine, the TabPro S is it, though you will have to pay a premium for it – it’s priced at Php 55,990.

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

69%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
