Ativ Q: Latest Samsung all-in-one fusion

First thing about this device that jumps out at you is the possibility to use both Android and Windows 8 operational systems: the tablet easily switches from one mode to the other within just a couple of seconds. The high performance is provided by an Intel 4th gen Haswell Core i5 which means flying along equally in both modes. Samsung foreseeingly furnishes multiple ways of changing the OS via touchscreen or with the help of the Windows button place at the bottom of display.

Talking about the last one, Ativ Q offers its owner an impressive 13-inch touchscreen with a superb 1800 to 3200 resolution which makes it feel more like a laptop than a tablet. Having 327 x 217,8 x 13 mm dimensions it weighs 1.29 kilos and seems to be a little too heavy in comparison with an average tablet. It might be rather convenient if you hold it in both hands or use the “stand” or “floating” mode, yet holding in one hand may appear uncomfortable. Realizing that there’s previously mention Haswell chip and a full set keyboard, you must admit that the weight is absolutely reasonable.

A high sensitive stylus pen carefully hidden on the right side of Ativ Q’s body is meant to help you run some of the apps and seems to be a rather useful feature in general, considering the screen size. Watch your favorite TV show or check out the latest news of top newspapers while eating your breakfast cornflakes or having a short coffee-break in the office.

Samsung Ativ Q has both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports in addition to HDMI output, headphone/mic jack, a micro SD slot to boost the built in 128GB SSD and the possibility to use a 720p HD video webcam for video conferencing and blogging. The scheduled battery life reaches 9 hours., meanwhile an Intel HD Graphics 4400 chip and 4GB RAM are expected to suffice for gaming.
Summing it all up, Samsung Ativ Q gets a solid A, forgiving its vendors the weight, and seems to be an impressive beast worth becoming a part of our everyday life. That is why we recommend you to consider this option if looking for some tablets for sale.
