A couple weeks ago we took a look at the Samsung ATIV 500T which is a Windows 8 Tablet that comes with a keyboard dock (full review can be found here). Today we are going to take a look at the "Pro" version of the ATIV, the ATIV 700T.

The ATIV 700T features an Intel Core i5-3317U CPU, 128GB SSD, 4GB DDR3 Memory, Intel HD 4000 Graphics, and an 11.6" 1920x1080 touchscreen. Basically the ATIV 700T sounds more like a laptop than a tablet thanks to all the hardware they've packed into it.

Let's not waste any more time and get a closer look at the Samsung ATIV 700T in the next section.


Closer Look:

The ATIV 700T looks very similar to the ATIV 500T that we just reviewed a few weeks ago, other than the color change (the 500T is gun metal color, the 700T is black).

Just like with the 500T, I was overall very impressed with the finish of the ATIV 700T. The aluminum rear side makes the tablet look very classy and you most definitely won't be embarrassed to pull it out in a business meeting.

The ATIV 700T features a power connector (pictured below), a micro SD card slot (pictured above), a HDMI port, S-Pen (pictured below), headphone jack (pictured above), as well as a USB 3.0 port (pictured above) on the tablet itself.

On the keyboard dock you will gain an additional 2 USB 2.0 ports.

A very nice feature of the ATIV 700T is the inclusion of the Samsung S-Pen, which as you can see pictured above, slides back into the tablet when not in use. The S-Pen isn't your normal run-of-the-mill stylus that you are used to, but features 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity which is very similar to professional level digitizer pens.

The S-Pen when paired with a nice 11.6" screen like the ATIV 700T has becomes very handy for many tasks. If you need to scribble down a quick note, or draw a complex diagram, the S-Pen will quickly become your new best friend.

The keyboard dock is one of the major features of the ATIV product lineup. Both the 500T and 700T have the same keyboard dock, the only difference appears to be the color. 


The ATIV 700T keyboard dock features 2 USB 2.0 ports, one on the left side, and one on the right side (pictured below).
