Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T Full Review - Windows 8 Tablet
      #43964 - 12/28/12 03:30 PM

So you want a Windows 8 tablet but you don't want to spend more than a grand and you want the same battery life you'd get from a mobile OS tablet like Android or the iPad. The ATIV 500T is a member of the in-between class of tablets with Intel Atom CPUs that sit between Windows RT and Intel Core i5 tablets. That means long battery life and the ability to run any Windows app you want, not just apps from the MS store like RT tablets. The Samsung ATIV 500T is a 1.8GHz Intel Atom dual core 11.6" tablet with a bright and pleasing PLS display and Wacom digitizer with pen.

It runs Windows 8 and has 2 gigs of RAM and a 64 gig SSD drive. There's a USB port, micro HDMI and a microSD card slot, yet it's relatively light at 1.65 pounds and slim. It's priced at $649, making it a bit more expensive than top tier Android and iOS tablets, but it's a more versatile product that can run Windows apps. There's an optional keyboard dock with trackpad for those of you who type lots.
