Youth Editors Review: Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro
The first time we saw the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro, we knew it was something special. It was quite different from other products at CES 2013, but still gave us that familiar feeling that kept us comfortable while using it. To find out all of the great benefits for the product, we followed up with Ramon Castillo, a Premium Retail Service Representative, from Samsung Electronics America, Inc.
Question: First and foremost, we would love to know what is so cool about the Smart PC Pro?
Ramon: The important thing to remember is that it’s the best of both worlds. It’s the full tablet experience, running on core i5 and 4 GBs of ram. This means that it’s very powerful, with top of the line specs and a very small footprint. You also have full capability of the S pen which is built to make life easier with handwriting, text, and shape recognition. It has top of the line specs and provides a full tablet experience and can also be used as a laptop whenever you need it.
Question: What can you tell us about the Smart PC Pro’s productivity?
Ramon: If you want to go into full productivity, you can snap back the screen to the magnetic keyboard and do anything you want that you would normally do with a laptop. It has a clamshell design so if you want to take it on the go, you can just throw it in your bag and it’s completely protected. You can watch a movie anywhere you go you can just pop it back out. It has up to 7 hours of battery life and it’s a phenomenal product.
Question: What is your favourite part of the product?
Ramon: That it can do everything. It’s versatile and it lets you be a consumer and a producer. It’s a fantastic product for both work and play. Whether you’re working on a project or just surfing the web, it’s great for just about anything.
Question: Would you say this is targeted more toward students or professionals?
Ramon: It’s great for everyone. We have two different models, the Smart PC that is for everyday use and the Smart PC Pro which is for someone who is an ultra-professional.
Question: Is this the direction where laptops are headed in the future?
Ramon: I don’t know for sure but this is the natural evolution of what we’re doing. This is the evolution of our design philosophy.
After learning about all the great features of the Smart PC Pro, we definitely think this is where future laptops are headed. With its fantastic touch screen features and easy-to-use S pen, it makes life easier for just about any type of consumer. There’s no need to have both a laptop and a tablet when you have an amazing Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro.
