    Some key points for now.., November 14, 2012
    By 
    This review is from: Samsung ATIV XE700T1C-A01US Smart PC Pro 700T (Personal Computers)

    A few posters above have given the meaty basics on this thing so far so I won’t go into all of those again. I will provide some of the technical features of this device.

    I will add to this review as I figure things out a little more. But I figured that I would post this here for now. I just purchased this from a Microsoft store as well. No Samsung apps on it as TechNurse said. It is also very top heavy and will fall over if not on a hard flat surface. Here are a few key points that I have noticed.

    There are four different models of the 700T1C which end in A01, A02, A03, and A04. I reviewed the Samsung site and found all specifications for each one. I can tell you I don’t even think Samsung knows what these things have since they are so new. I did my research and found right off the bat that Samsung’s specs are wrong on this model. I have the XE700T1C-AE02US.

    Samsung’s website states it as having a 32bit version of Windows 8. This is incorrect. It has a full 64bit version of Windows 8.

    Another thing I found right away is that Samsung lists this model(A02) as only having a 1.5ghz processor which is also incorrect. It has a 1.7ghz processor just like the rest of them.

    It shows the A03 and A04 as having a TPM security chip, and the A01 and A02 as not having this chip. I don’t know if they just have them disabled for a reason or if they think people don’t know what they do. I was able to activate mine on my A02. You have to go into the BIOS and enable it. You cannot do this from the desktop, etc. Once it is enabled via BIOS, then you install and configure it via the desktop. So here is one more thing that it doesn’t list, but it does have it.

    The other main difference in the A04 model is that it comes standard with Windows 8 Pro whereas the other 3 do not. It also looks like it comes with some type of Office as well for the $150 price difference.

    There is only one other thing that I found that the A02 does not list which the other 3 do. That is having the built in WiDi. I started researching that and it is basically from transmitting Wireless Display to a capable TV set and a few other products. It is made by Intel. It seems to me like it is more of a software download than hardware but I could be wrong. I need to check on that as well.

    Ok so another question I see a lot of is the 3G/4G capabilities. I don’t know if there is some kind of adapter needed to get the SIM cards to fit, but I tried both a Verizon and an At&T SIM card both out of cell phones. They were both way too small to fit in the slot and they just fell right in. I was thinking that there might be an adapter or maybe the SIM cards for tablets are different sized. Either way I will try to see what I can find out.

    One thing I do not understand is why they would have four different models that are pretty much the same thing, and three of them are the same price. The A04 is the only one that seems to be more expensive, but is also the only one that comes with Windows 8 Pro.

    Heat: So far I have not had this thing get very warm at all. I never hear the fan kick on either. I have not ran it too hard but plan on watching some Netflix and stuff over the weekend and will see how it goes then.

    Battery life: I have ran this thing watching youtube videos, surfing the web, and downloading stuff. The battery lasted 6 hours before needing recharged. As stated, these things do not have a battery in the keyboard so what is in the tablet is all you get.

    Keyboard: Seems a little cramped but gets the job done. No backlighting which is unfortunate. Not too bulky which works out fine. I think the overall thickness of the tablet and keyboard together is a lot thicker than many ultra books as well as heavier.

    One last thing to note is that upon opening and looking at the instruction manual, the front of it said that it was for the 700T/701T models. There is no 701T models out yet so maybe this could be either the 256gb hard drive version with the I7 processor…who knows???

    Problems so far: I am not sure why but I have had this thing freeze up a few times now where I have had to restart it to get it back to where it will run again. Very irritating to say the least. Not sure what is causing it but I will probably be reformating it anyways with Windows Pro here in the next few days.

    Any questions feel free to ask and I will try to answer them for you.

    Update:
    ***How to turn on TPM module***
    Since there have been a few people that can’t figure it out, I will give a step by step on how to do it. I take no responsibility with anything you choose to do in the BIOS. Changing things around can mess up your computer if you don’t know what you are doing. If you choose to continue, that is completely on you and you are doing so at your own risk…

    Great tablet, terrible keyboard design., November 10, 2012
    By 
    Tech Nurse “Tech Nurse” (Newark, DE) –
    This review is from: Samsung ATIV XE700T1C-A01US Smart PC Pro 700T (Personal Computers)

    UPDATE:
    I’ve made the hard decision to return this item. I use my laptop 70% of the time, tablet functions 30%. I can’t justify the cost on a product half baked. Between some win 8 bugs and the issues already documented below, I’ve opted to update to a ultrabook laptop. HP Elitebook Folio 9470m which you can read my review here: http://www.amazon.com/HP-EliteBook-Folio-180GB-Notebook/dp/B009PHUR66/ref=cm_aya_orig_subj

    In 6 months, there will be better devices, hopefully one that addresses the shortcomings of this device. By then Win 8 patches should be in place and more sites will address IE 10 compatabilities. Even Amazon’s site struggles with IE 10.

    Hopefully the Elitebook Folio will have a touchscreen and stylus option with a tablet option by then.

    I find that I need to work via laptop 6-10 hrs a day and then I want to relax and use the tablet functions, but with battery limitations with this device, you don’t have this option. So when I actually want to use the tablet, the battery is already drained from the day use, unless I was plugging it in everytime I returned to my desk which sometimes is not an option.

    So for now, I’ll continue to use a laptop and switch to a tablet as needed. As a tablet, this product is awesome. The question you have to ask is, $1,200 awesome? For me, not right now.

    UPDATE:
    You can read my updates below, but I put this on the very top. I have to echo the review by Isaac related to the keyboard. I’ve mentioned the issues below, but the price for just the tablet doesn’t justify not having a functioning keyboard. The top heaviness and the lack of being able tilt the tablet further back and that it’s just a basic keyboard without much more to add to the tablet functioning, I’ve dropped my original 4 star rating to 3 as this combo just fails as a combo. As a tablet, wins hands down, but I didn’t spend this much money for just a tablet. Samsung sells the keyboard alone for $130 which is ridiculous since it has little to offer that another external keyboard couldn’t offer. I’m hoping Asus comes out with a pen input device as they already nailed the keyboard design with the SD card, extra battery. The only missing item would be extra storage option.

    For those looking at tablets with pen options, here’s a link that compares the tablets: [...]
    Previous Review:

    Fortunate to have a Microsoft store near me and they had just received a shipment, hadn’t even had time to put it on display.

    They do not charge a restocking fee and they are in their holiday timeline, so I have until Jan 14 to decide whether to keep or return. Just to make sure, I had them write this on my receipt.

    Ok, not that any of the above really helps in the review, but in the event you have one of these Microsoft stores nearby, it may be an option, especially since Amazon seems to still be sold out.

    I have an asus transformer 1st gen, kindle fire, ipad 1 & 2, I use a Toshiba R835 Ultrabook for most of my day to day computer work.

    I’m looking for something that can replace essentially the need to carry a tablet and a laptop and can handle windows software for business.

    I will update this review as needed. I’m not going to repeat the typical reviews on specs, etc. There’s plenty out there, this will be on a more simplified level, from an end user perspective.

    INITIAL FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

    Tablet is big. As a computer it’s almost too small, but it’s a compromise. Weight as a tablet felt heavy, but not as heavy as my first gen asus transformer, but I’m use to carrying the ipad 2, weight as a laptop feels fine. Nice and compact, although a bit on the thick side, but a nice smooth profile.

    Cons: No backlit keyboard, touch pad is narrow, no full size SD card, no VGA port (I hate carrying dongles and adapters). Wish the keyboard had an extra battery and storage, ie. another hard drive, this would help weight down the keyboard. The keyboard base is light, making it top heavy. Wish they used USB 3 ports in the keyboard base instead of USB 2. And it would of been nice if the ports were together so you could use an external DVD drive (which requires 2 usb ports typically).

    There’s a large learning curve, mainly due to the new OS. What doesn’t help is, no manual. It comes with a vague quick start guide. I’m still trying to figure out how to turn the blue tooth on and NFR. I’m sure there’s a pdf, just have to find it.

    I did load a 64 GB micro sd card and the system recognized it without problems. The power adapter is nice and compact, about half the bulk as my Toshiba R835 which was light to begin with.

    Even though it comes with a 128 GB hard drive, you actually have 78 GB of 101 GB available, so space will be tight.

    Before you dock the tablet to the keyboard, you have to remove 2 plastic…

    The Elusive Samsung Ativ PC Pro 700t, November 14, 2012
    By 
    L. Breda “L.” (USA) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    This review is from: Samsung ATIV XE700T1C-A01US Smart PC Pro 700T (Personal Computers)

    I chatted with Microsoft via there online chat support, and I called my local store November 12th and nobody had any idea when they might be getting the 700T in stock. I had read that people were getting them at their local Microsoft stores from the Q&A section on Amazon discussions as well as from a few other forums. Apparently this tablet has a pretty large (and frustrated) following.

    I myself was just about to throw in the towel and think about maybe going with the Sony Duo Slider or buying a series 7 slate and downloading windows 8 to make it more usable. I really want the active digitizer and the only reason why I didn’t jump on the Sony Duo was because its Digitizer is the inferior N-Trig.

    Today on a whim I called my local Microsoft again and held my breath as the store clerk went to check to see if they had the 700T in stock. When they guy got back on the line and informed that YES THEY DID HAVE IT IN STOCK I almost keeled over!!!! After all this waiting I could finally get my hands on the elusive Samsung Ativ PC Pro! I asked the store clerk if I should RUN over because seeing how they are selling out like hot cakes online I figured they must be in store as well! He didn’t seem to think they would sell out before the afternoon, but let me tell you I got in the car and booked it over there anyways!

    I wrote a quick review earlier but it was pretty useless so I am rewriting my review to see if I can more effectively give people some insights on this wonderful tablet. Here are my first impressions -

    Build Quality – I had read online that some people felt the build quality of the Ativ 700T was cheap. I disagree; while it is made of plastic I think it feels quite nice in my hands. I previously purchased a Series 7 slate and returned it because I disliked how wide it was and now I remember why I disliked it! in landscape mode the tablet is wonderful! But turn it to portrait and its pretty long and awkward to hold. However, since I use my ipad for reading and web surfing and I plan to use this for digital art and light photo editing I think the width will end up working in my favor. I also think that the design is improved over the series 7 slate. There is now a slot for the S-pen which is much more practical (though it also has caused major design changes for the s-pen over the pen that came with series 7 which I will talk about later) and its seems slimmer and lighter though I haven’t actually compared the specs. I also like the black color I think it looks more professional and less like a toy.

    S-Pen – As I mentioned above in order for the S-pen to fit into the unit Samsung has changed it significantly from the stylus that came with the series 7 slate. I liked the build quality of the series 7 stylus but it was useless to me if I couldn’t keep it house in the unit. I think for long periods of writing I will see if the stylus from my intuos 6 tablet will work with the 700t. For my smaller hands I don’t think I will experience too much discomfort while writing or drawing with the tiny stylus but for a man with large hands I think it would be uncomfortable quickly.

    The S-pen works great in the s-note ap! No lag and shows nice pressure sensitivity. However, I don’t really think the s-not ap is that practical for storing all my drawings and prefer more mainstream ap’s like one note and Corel Painter. So far I downloaded Corel Painter and did some quick sketches and the S-pen worked pretty good! I am not noticing very good pressure sensitivity I think its there but it is not as responsive as in S-note. I am going to try out art rage and some other programs and also experiment more with Corel and hopefully get some better results. However, the performance of Corel Painter was really good and I am very satisfied. I downloaded the one note ap in the microsoft store (free version) its not full one-note its and ap version of one-note – its not great – performance wise there is no lag but its hard to navigate and I think the full version will be better and more familiar. However, I can’t really complain when something is free.

    Performance wise I am pretty happy! The microsoft guy showed me computers with the same specs so that I could see just how impressive the internals are of this device crammed into such a slim shell. It is responsive and snappy and the tile mode is SO BEAUTIFUL and easy.

    I got the version XE700T1C-A02US version which is supposed to be 32 bit – but it ended up being 64bit – nobody seems to know what is what with these models. The store clerk informed me there was no keyboard with this model – well when I opened it much to my surprise there WAS A keyboard included! I think Samsung has some clarification to do on their models!

    So the keyboard was my one point of disappointment – I couldn’t snap it on when I tried and then I realized that there was two little plus in the holes – I felt like an…
