Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro review

7.4/10 AVG.

Informr score
The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro currently has an Informr score of 7.4 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 8 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is a powerful tablet PC. With an i5-3337U processor, SSD storage and 4GB of RAM, the tablet is up to virtually any task.

Windows 8 provides a full-featured experience with the ability to multitask with ease. The 1080P display on the device offers crisp text and bright colors. Laptop Magazine recently rated the display as one of the brightest available in the current tablet market. This makes it ideal for those working on the go.

With a responsive touch screen, optional keyboard dock, Bluetooth support, S-Pen support, a USB 3.0 port and Micro-HDMI port available, the tablet is ready to support the latest apps, accessories and input. This makes it more than a simple media consumption device. The Samsung ATIV Smart PC is a viable workstation crammed into a tablet that weighs just below 2 pounds. Front-facing speakers provide a loud, though slightly tinny, audio experience for music, movies, PowerPoint presentations and more.

4G LTE support allows you to use experience broadband-like speeds anywhere that coverage is available. This allows you to quit searching for public Wi-Fi hotspots to get your YouTube fix or work on documents remotely.

TechRadar recently named the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro the only real competition to the popular Surface Pro. Though it is one of the higher priced tablets currently available, it justifies its price with outstanding build quality, market-leading performance and innovative features.

The Good: Industry leading specs, performance in nearly every category.

The Bad: Expensive price tag (especially if you require a monthly 4G LTE contract).

What the Critics Are Saying...


Stop Smoking With Hypnosis- Benjamin Bonetti for iPhone and iPad is based on some interesting concepts and is sure to at least give you a focal point as you do your best to stop smoking.

There’s no denying that Samsung has crafted a very powerful tablet in the ATIV Smart PC Pro, yet there are a handful of flaws that stop this expensive product from reaching perfection. A small hard drive, plastic chassis and battery-less keyboard are all strange omissions, although many will s...

Laptop Magazine

Among Intel-Core-powered Windows 8 hybrids, the $1,199 Wi-Fi version of the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 700T is one of our favorites because of the versatile S Pen, handy Samsung apps (including a Start-menu replacement) and sharp 1080p display. The addition of 4G LTE and a slightly faster CPU would seem...

The Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro 700T combines plenty of processing power with better-than-expected battery life. It has some nice touches, but misses the mark in some ways. Ultimately, one would expect more solidity and polish in a system of this class.
