Itís a laptop! Itís a tablet! No, itís both. We are talking about the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, that combines the power of a notebook computer and the convenience of a tablet with a unique and revolutionary convertible design. Basically it is a convertible Windows 8 tablet that docks into a hinged keyboard to create a small laptop. It is a combination of many features and capabilities that make this device smart.

The evolution of the tablet computer is due to the fact that consumers want something more portable than a laptop, more powerful than a netbook, and more comfortable than a smartphone and a tablet PC fills all of those needs pretty well. Tablets are already feature-rich enough in order to be suitable laptop replacements. The new, tablet-friendly Windows 8 operating system is also there in the marketplace. No wonder, established PC makers are looking for a foothold in the exploding tablet market with portable gadgets that are a little of bothóa tablet as well as a laptop.

I recently spent some time with Samsungís latest device. The Smart PC is a convertible laptop, closest in design to the Asus Transformer. Samsungís convertible design is a little bigger than the Taiwanese companyís product. The ATIV Smart PC is an 11.6-inch tablet where the Transformer is 10-inch. However, Samsung has kept the tablet slim. At 9.9 mm thick and weighing 744 grams, it is only a little bigger than the latest generation iPad, which is 9.4 mm thick and weighs 652 grams. As a result, the Smart PC is highly portable and perfectly comfortable to hold one-handed. Even with the keyboard attached, it measures just 18 mm thick and weighs 1.45 kg: about the size of a netbook.

Take my word, you get the power of a PC and the freedom of a tabletóin a single portable package. Basically, it merges a laptopís processing capabilities with the user-friendliness and portability of a tablet. The Smart PC ships with the 32-bit version of Windows 8 installed. The processor is Intelís Atom Z2760. In other words, smart performance for work as well as play is assured.

The slender Samsung tablet has a nearly full-size keyboard, but the keyboard is included as a detachable accessory. The keys on the keyboard are a little slippery, but they are nearly full size. You can also
