Samsung Ativ Smart PC launched, priced

Not to be outdone by Asus, Samsung Philippines also unveiled their latest Windows 8 PC offering yesterday. One of their new offerings is the ATIV Smart PC which we first featured back in August even before Microsoft formally announced their new OS.

At the core of this Windows 8 Convertible Tablet PC is an Intel Atom Z2760 processor with 2GB LPDDR2 RAM and 128GB SSD. The company also equipped the bad boy with pair of snapper; 8MP on the rear and 2MP on the front.

To ensure maximum productivity and creativity, Samsung bundled the ATIV Smart PC with a keyboard dock and a Wacom Digitizer S-Pen which has 1024K pressure sensitivity. The stylus is paired with Samsung’s proprietary S-Note app similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note.

Here’s a short clip of our hands-on with the Samsung ATIV Smart PC:

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC sports a handful of ports including a USB 3.0, mHDMI, Audio jack and micro-SD slot. The keyboard dock adds two more USB 2.0 ports to its arsenal.

      @John
      ok for gaming but not for anything compute intensive like rendering.

    • Ramon says:

      Yup slyv3rblade is right, need more muscle for rendering

      But what I really want it to future proof my devices as much as possible… Ayokong bumili tapos wla pang 1yr, obsolete na agad XD

      But that’s just me :)

    • John says:

      tama, pero kung ganun ka naman malamang yung mga 14″ laptop ang kailangan mo..

      anyway,

      mas ok ata yung vivobook x202e, upgrade it to 256gb ssd it will cost you only 36k compare sa 60k ng samsung.. hindi nga lang FHD at detachable yung screen. hehe di hamak na mas ok naman ang asus compare sa samsung pagdating sa laptops

    • Ramon says:

      Agree, mas prefer ko din asus kaysa samsung…

      Pero interested ako dun sa mga tablet hybrids (detachable screen) at yung s-pen… Nice-to-have features xD

  2. John says:

    for 10k more, sony vaio duo 11 nalang ako.

    • EXO-Ken says:

      Where can I find the 10k plus Sony Vaio Duo 11? I’ve searched the price on the net and it’s shockingly 60k bucks! Geez.

  3. Mike says:

    wait i thought you said “Instead of HD display, the company equipped the PC Pro with a Full HD PLS Type screen with 400 nit brightness.”

    Then why did you say Samsung ATIV Smart PC PRO has 1366×768? shouldn’t it be 1920×1080?

  11. shef says:

  12. Rene says:

    Does anyone know when the ATIV Smart PC Pro (700T1C) will be available locally? I’ve seen the 500T1C in the malls but I’ve got my eye on the 700T1C.

    Does anyone know when the ATIV Smart PC Pro (700T1C) will be available locally? I’ve seen the 500T1C in the malls but I’ve got my eye on the higher-end model.

  14. Francis says:

    The pro is priced really high. I’d rather have the Surface pro 8 at that pricepoint. I’m tempted to get the 5001TC but I’m worried about the CPU though as it might not be able to run all my system admin apps at a satisfactory manner.

    Just for thoughts, anyone had experience running VMware vCenter client on this? This is a the heaviest sysadmin app that I use.

  15. Kent Ryan Norcio says:

    May chance po ba na bumaba pa po yung presyo? I’m kind of interested po kasi and one thing pa po very kailangan po namin ng laptop sa bahay na convertible and very cheap yung price. Siguro po sa iba meron yata pero hindi convertible. sana lang po bumaba yung price… :))
