Detailed review
PROS: As a first Samsung netbook-tablet with Windows 8, multi-touch capability, detchable keyboard, S-Pen and S-Note features, ATIV Smart PC flawlessly be a great netbook compare to the other competitor who offer the same tablet and netbook at the same price and performance. The Intel Atom Z Processor, 2GB RAM and 64 GB iNAND Flash Drive, quite good to perform many task on word processing, spreadsheet jobs, presentation editing and photo editing. The applications that includes on the package either from Microsoft, Samsung Apps, and Norton 60 days trial Security Apps, make an additional advantage for this netbook package. 8 MP and 2 MP dual-side camera, have a great quality to capture some photos and images, and done well on video conferencing with Skype. The connection and sync to Microsoft account and Xbox Live, made this netbook-tablet hybrid quite good for managing Microsoft's ecosystem and Xbox games. The 3G broadband wireless connection is a plus, just plug your 3G SimCard, done a little settings and you'll easily connected to the Internet, checking your email, social media connection and stuffs.

CONS: The Intel Integrated Graphics is not quite enough to do the 3D graphics and games. For a sample, the 3D character on Xbox Live Profile is not rendered correctly on the textures and stuffs. But average games mostly runs well.

SUMM: This portable Hybrid Netbook-Tablet is very nice Windows 8 device on performing average office and mulimedia task, and the Samsung S-Pen and S-Note apps are make all this tasks easily on mobile. Doing multimedia stuff like playing music, video and games, taking pictures and videos, all performing well on this device. Very good for portable multimedia player, mobile office and social media tasks.
