The Samsung ATIV Smart PC is mainly decked in the tablet form which can be converted to a laptop, which is an amazing feature where one can choose the option of tablet or laptop in one system. People would get the impression that hybrid systems are heavy, but it is actually the opposite in the case of ATIV Smart Pro, the system weighs 1.6 kg. This laptop is designed to offer decent build contributed by the metal at the rear that binds the tablet.
Furthermore into the make and features; the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro adopts the Ultrabook chassis. The main hardware processes are the 1.7GHz Core i5-3317U processor, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD. The stunning hybrid is built with a fairly decent display of 11.6-inch HD. In terms of the actual make up of the system, there is the usual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with buttons and ports fitted on top. Further browse through the fitments, the top panel is inserted with a headphone/mic combo jack, power button, screen orientation button and USB 3.0 port with a neat plastic.

The digitiser is one of the essential traits in a laptop which is a significant attribute of the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro. The other interesting and unique aspect is the S Pen fitted on the rear. The S Pen is featured with the remarkable ability to edit photos and select texts or important objects. The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro has admirable characteristics of a dynamic hybrid, the most unique and inventive is the S Pen rarely observed in laptops. The only drawback could be the structural metal which does not appeal to the taste of many. The system has a monotonous paint which delivers the image of a basic model than a hybrid.
