Why waste a good hw product for bad software?


Really like the Ativ Q, only negative is that you can’t remove the screen and use it as a separate tablet. If that was possible it’d be the ultimate machine for me.

Does anybody have an indication how long approximately after declaring the new ATIV~Q dual boot hybrid it will likely be before its released to buy……….within a month perhaps or could it be as many as 3 months?? Oh and what the likelyhood is that it be released only in usa with uk release coming later? Any guidance is gratefully received as im trying to get my bearings what would be my best option available to buy within next 2 months…….Asus tegra4 infinity is another option even if I have to import it from usa.

sincerely the tablet acer iconia with i5 and 4gbddr3 at 1333mhz and hd 4000 included, and windows 8 pro, it’s more good.
why to buy this?and wat is the price for tab q and tab3 ativ??
the price for acer iconia the higher, is 800euro, with keyboard, docking, bag and more things in package…soooooo wat offer samsung ??


Curious to know why Samsung has given the Ativ Tab 3 2 GB of RAM when the virtually identical sibling Galaxy Tab 3 has been given just 1 GB. Does Windows 8 require more RAM than Jelly Bean?


2GB RAM for Windows 8 is insufficient. Windows 8 = full PC. A standard high end laptop should have at least 6GB or 8GB RAM.

Android Jelly Bean is nothing compared to Windows 8


Ativ 9 plus all metal, high resolution qhd display? Sweet, looks like an android killer. Enable text and phone calls and a 7.7 inch format, count me in.
