Samsung launched its ATIV Smart PC around December of last year. The ATIV Smart PC runs the latest Windows Operating System, Windows 8 32-bit, instead of the Windows RT running on most tablets. The ATIV also seems to be an attempt to confuse consumers into thinking it is a laptop, but it is still actually a tablet rather than a full-fledged PC.

The ATIV is powered by an Intel Atom Z2760 ”Clover Trail” 32-bit processor is Intel’s rival to the ARM-based CPUs. Consumers who expect laptop-type performance will be disappointed. The ATIV therefore can only handle tasks that are light on processor utilization such as emails and Internet surfing. Complementing the Atom processor is 2GB DDR2 RAM memory, 64GB of built-in flash memory and a 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

Built in the ATIV’s tablet body is a single USB port and microSD slot, thus limiting the number of devices you can connect to the ATIV at onece if you plan to only carry around the tablet body itself. The keyboard dock adds 2 more USB ports and a power connector, thus increasing connectivity to USB-compatible devices even further.

Overall, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC is quite a good tablet, and will serve well enough as a portable productivity device, but cannot be mistaken as a laptop.
