I am very impressed by the Windows 8 devices announced by Samsung!
Yesterday, Samsung unveiled their ATIV series of devices optimized for Windows 8. As a long time user of an ASUS Transformer, I welcome their device design with the detachable screen. I was also very happy to hear that the Series 5 and Series 7 Slate PCs will be featuring their newly announced S-Pen – I almost got a little jealous when they showed it off using the Galaxy Note 2.
This is how the two stack up on the technical side:
ATIV Series 7: 11.6-inch, Core i5, 4GB RAM,128GB SSD, 1920*1080 px
ATIV Series 5: 11.6-inch, Intel 2-Watt-Proc, 2GB RAM, 64GB SSD, 1366*786 px
The lower 1366*768 px resolution may sound like a drawback but I have been using the currently available Samsung Series 7 Slate with Windows 8 for quite some time and at the same display size, to me, this resolution is very good to work with.
