Samsung ATIV Smart PC tablet goes on preorder for £699

The Samsung ATIV Smart PC was launched two months ago and can be pre-ordered from online retailer Misco for £699, a price that includes a whopping five year warranty. Note that the tablet bundled with a clamshell keyboard costs an additional £96 and that a more powerful version with an Intel Core processor is available for £999.

The tablet comes with an 11.6in 1,366 x 768 pixels display and it runs Windows 8 Professional 32-bit. Interestingly enough, it is powered by an Intel Atom Z2560 processor based on the new Clovertrail architecture and clocked at 1.8GHz, with a PowerVR SGX545 GPU onboard.

There’s also 64GB onboard storage, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a front facing 2-megapixel camera and a rear 8-megapixel camera, up to 9.4 hours video play time, a thickness of 9.9mm and a weight of 750g.

Misco has confirmed that it will receive the first stocks from 12 November. The ATIV range is Samsung’s new dedicated Windows range (Windows RT, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8) and includes an ARM-based tablet, the ATIV tab, and a smartphone, the ATIV S.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
