    Can Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T run Pirates 101?


    My daughter wants a tablet for Christmas but she also needs a laptop so she can do schoolwork and play her favorite game (Pirates 101). Would anyone with a Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T be willing to download it and try it out so I can be 100% she isn't disappointed on Christmas day? It's a free to play MMO. Appreciate the help!

    Hello there!

    I can't say for sure, but seeing as the game specs require a base 1 GHz processor speed, and the Samsung Ativ has a 1.8 GHz processor speed, it should work fine. That, along with IE 10's graphical hardware acceleration...

    I played with this machine and its brother, the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T. these are amazing machines!

    what's your budget? If you can swing for the Core i5 model, do it. Because laptops/tablets are not upgradeable so the more powerful you can get, the longer it will last. The model with the Core i5 was amazing. I soooooo want this machine. It was $1100 at the Microsoft Store. keyboard was fantastic. when it's docked, it's just like a laptop. you can even fold it like a laptop. when you undock it, it's just like a compact tablet. pretty amazing stuff. the pen has a pretty narrow tip for a capacitive pen.

    The one with the Atom processor was pretty good. and for simpler games like Pirates, that model will be good. But I can imagine lasting a good 5+ years with the i5 model in terms of performance. The Atom model might feel really slow in a couple of years. But it is sexy as well. The body has a different bluish color as well versus the more grayish of the bigger brother. The bigger brother is around $400 more? I know that's a lot of money but think long term.

    Actually the pen on the 700T is an s-pen and not a capacitive stylus. It acts more like a mouse and the touch gestures don't always work.

    didn't know it wasn't a capacitive pen. thanks for the tip.

    why do you need touch gestures with the pen? it's a touch screen.

    Windows 8 can distinguish between a pen and finger touch. On my HP, both are completely separated in what they can do. And my screen has an active Wacom digitizer.

    Operating system

    Adivce needed


    Hello everyone
    In Monday they released the new Samsung's smartphone. I read all sorts of reviews posted on the machine and they were very different from each other. On the one hand its processor should be more powerful than the Galaxy 3. On the other hand, a strong processor On the following set exactly the same shortcoming. How can this be? Could be that the writer confused? The size of the device is the same as S3. So what exactly is the difference other than the operating system? The description of the device Samsung Ativ S does not tell me much. I get lost among all the numbers and names in English ...
    I'd be happy to recommend a device to the two. I want to surprise my little brother on the Silvester: - ^)
    Thanks in advance
