Keeping up with the latest trend, Samsung has come out with ATIV Smart PC 500T XE500T1C-A01CA Z2760 which is a laptop cum tablet model. Though it has been designed to provide both the features, it resembles a tablet more than a laptop.
This model comes with a 2GB memory and 64GB flash storage. The screen is 11.6 inches and is 9.9mm thin, just a little heavier than an iPad. It has a big enough screen for comfortable viewing and comes with a 1366 by 768 pixels camera. As for the function keys, most of them are designed to be on the tablet part which includes the power button, USB port, volume and microSD card slot. Because of the function keys which are positioned in such a way, the smart PC isn’t of much use. Moreover, it has a keyboard but it lacks control buttons and doesn’t include any port or connections for power which makes it a little less versatile. Nevertheless, it is still a very useful feature for people who intend to type a lot on the go.
This dual purpose PC and tablet offer a lot more compared to its predecessors. Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T is powered by Intel’s ATOM Z2760 which is highly energy efficient and uses very low powered applications for tablet, providing longer battery life. Individually if we compare it with the tablets or iPads, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC design may seem a little clumsy; but as a dual model it is much better and more suitable than the other models in its class. Apart from offering a versatile performance, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC is also quite flexible in its functionality. You can easily access emails, internet, application download, documents, etc. The screen is big and also has touch screen facility along with high definition quality and good sound quality, making it a good competitor in the market. The memory storage has been devised to last for a long time and hence it has an in-built technology which helps in upgrading the memory as and when required.
The keyboard keys are sized for all finger-sizes – however, they are slightly slippery till you get used to them. Compared to its competitors it is quite heavy and bulky but typing is not at all hampered and there are less typing errors. It also has an Xbox Music and Video Store from which you can buy songs, music videos as well as movies. There is a provision for playing games with in-built graphics in the design which provide a good gaming experience in 3D. Other than this, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T XE500T1C-A01CA Z2760 has in-built speakers that come with a pair of headphones. With the use of Windows Media Player you can watch videos stored in your SmartPC as well. The screen may seem tall and less wide, and that may take a while to get used to for some users. On a landscape mode, it may seem little troublesome to hold the tablet with both hands and with one-hand it may seem heavy.
