Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro (XE700T1C-H02PH) Unboxing and First Impression


First announced last August 2012, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro, combines the power of a notebook PC and the convenience of a tablet PC. For Php59,900 (SRP), the 11.6-inch also features a detachable keyboard dock that allows users to easily switch between a notebook and a tablet form factor. These devices allow for great mobility with maximum productivity. Luckily, we were able to get our hands on a unit and we’d like to share our initial impression as well as unboxing experience after the jump.

Samsung ATIV Smart PC: Simple, Beautiful, Powerful

Packaging and Contents
The packing of the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro don’t have much difference from other Samsung offered products. Once we removed the tape on the side and popped open the top lid. As expected the first thing that we saw was the tablet and underneath it was the keyboard dock and a box which contains the following stuff: AC adapter, power cable, micro fiber cleaning cloth, quick start guide, keyboard dock user guide, Samsung Windows 8 Apps quick guide, safety precautions, software update information and warranty information.

Design and First Impression
The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro case is made of a combination of magnesium alloy and plastic, the tablet feels solid and sturdy, but it doesn't have the premium feel like some competitors. On the front there's the scratch-resistant Gorilla glass, Windows home button, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and two speakers at the side. While the back features a brushed metal finish and closely resembles the bottom of a laptop. Also, on the back you will find the four grills for ventilation, a 5-megapixel camera and a NFC antenna.

All the buttons and ports are spread out around the edges of the device. The bottom is home to the DC power jack, the docking connector (covered with dummy caps) and the docking port. The left side houses the Micro-HDMI port (full-sized HDMI is not included in the package) and volume control buttons. There's no port on the right side except for the S-pen slot.

On the top left, the tablet features a ear-set/ headset combo jack, power/lock button, rotation lock button, dual-array digital mic and a fast USB 3.0 port.

While on the top right is the air vent, MicroSD card slot and SIM card slot.

Note: Don't forget to remove the dummy caps at the bottom of the tablet before connecting it to the keyboard dock.

Keyboard Dock
The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro keyboard dock features a full sized chiclet keyboard and touchpad, so there’s no compromise on performance or productivity especially when creating text-heavy documents. As well as the normal “function” features, the keyboard also has two extra USB 2.0 port (one on each side) so you can connect extra peripherals. The dock is solidly constructed, but the hinge is so soft that every time we inserted the tablet it easily turn itself over.
