Not long ago, we tested one of Samsung’s new Windows 8 tablets to take a close-up look at Intel’s Clover Trail Atom Z2760 SoC. Now that we’ve covered the chip driving the tablet, it’s time to take a look at the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T as a whole. The tablet runs about $650 by itself, which puts the price on par with a similarly-configured iPad. (Well, as similarly as it can be configured.) Throw in the optional keyboard and dock for another $100, and you’re still looking at a device that should be able to stand in for your laptop or PC in some situations, at an attainable price. 

Here's what we found when we took the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T for a spin.

This tablet does come with an S-Pen. It slides out of the top of the screen.

It's dual core. Therefore your argument is invalid. :)

i have the 500T with LTE and it does not have the pen. it has a few quirks when it cpmes to the on screen keyboard (im using it now) For one, there is now Windows key or ALT key so you cant use any shortcuts. plus when kts on portrait mode, the keyboard doesnt stay open if im trying to enter comments. And as uou can see, it doesnt point out typos or create capital letters on its own like an ipad would.

i paid $699 and im returning it tomorrow.
