But that’s not everything – Samsung also unveiled the ATIV Smart PC and the ATIV Smart PC Pro hybrid devices that are powered by Intel x86 processors and run the full version of Windows 8. Both PCs have a detachable keyboard docking system that can transform it into a laptop or a tablet.

There are some slight differences between the two PCs though. The Smart PC comes with an Intel Atom processor while the Smart PC Pro features an Intel Core i5 chip inside. Also the Smart PC has USB 2.0 ports, while the Smart PC Pro offers the faster USB 3.0 standard.

Pricing of all devices is unknown.
