I don't see anything about a wireless connection? What is Windows RT?

Pretty sure its not RT. If you compare to a Surface Pro its a steal. I think...

This runs full Windows 8, not RT. The issue is the Atom Z2760 powering it. It's a slow processor, but the trade-off is the lower price and longer battery life compared to Core i5/i7 tablets.

Correct. RT is solely for ARM tablets. This runs an Intel Atom Z2760, so it gets Windows 8 (legacy support and whatnot). That said, it isn't nearly up to the level of something like the Surface Pro. The Core i5-3317U in the Pro is significantly (noticeably) faster in every respect compared to the Atom in this Samsung slate. It also has a higher resolution screen and an actual SSD (rather than eMMC). The Surface Pro feels like an Ultrabook; the Samsung ATIV 500 slateis more like a netbook.

Tempting for the casual user, but the Atom processor would probably be a deal killer for most folks here. If it included the dock I'd probably pick one up for casual home use to replace my Android tablet.

As an aside, I've been living with a Surface Pro/Targus docking station (dual monitors+Surface Pro monitor/mouse/keyboard/phone dock/network) as my "work laptop" for a couple of weeks now. It works as well as the i5 Dell laptop it replaced.

Amazon sold it for $269 or $249 while back. Awesome price. YOu can buy keyboard, and it makes decent netbook. I am holding out for upcoming new atom chipset from intel with more than 2Gig memory, and much much more with hell of a battery life.

Just bought this a couple of weeks ago. It's Win8, which people have a love/hate relationship with. However, my understanding is that Microsoft is preparing a new interface that will make it more Win7 like if you wish to change the interface. I like the fact you can input using the included stylus. It also has an Intel Atom Processor designed specifically for tabs. Compared to a full pc/laptop it can be a little slow. However, it a nice package that does just about everything a laptop can. You can also buy a docking keyboard. I suspect these might be customer returns. When they were first released, there was an issue with the screen dimming quickly. I understand this was an intentional design to save battery power. They have since released a new bios which you are encouraged to download and install. I have no problem with mine. Mine was "new" in open box. The last Microsoft updates were Dec 2012. I suspect someone didn't like the dimming feature and either didn't want to wait for the release of the update or didn't know about it.

Would this work as good as a Surface Pro?

Too bad I don't know tablets well enough to know about this.

I got a Motorola Xoom on here a couple years ago but it was burgliarized before I ever opened it.

Nope: not windows RT, I own one. I also have an iPad (on my 3rd), and have 3 Android tablets (OK, I share them with the family...). I wanted the larger screen and liked the fact that I could install pretty much any Windows software on it. It's pretty snappy and although the Win 8 interface isn't perfect, it does help on a tablet, cuz, yup, you guessed it, I owned a Windows XP tablet... there, I said it...

Would buy again, espec. at this price! Pen was nice bonus.

I've had this with they keyboard dock since they came out late last year. This is definitely not the same netbook ATOM we've all grown to hate over time. While it's not fast, it's really very usable for basic stuff.

The metro interface in particular is quite snappy and touch is smooth and crisp.

It's been surprisingly versatile with USB ports and HDMI out.

As a general comment about any Windows 8 device, you really should have a keyboard if you are going to use the desktop a lot. The desktop really blows IMO without one.

Also of note is that Chrome is terrible with touch so plan on using IE if you want the best experience.

I should add that I am using it with the Windows 8.1 preview now and a lot of the quirks that were annoying before seemed to have settled down.

For me, no, its going to be slower. If all you do is email/websurfing/standard tablet type stuff, probably. I don't know enough to comment on how it works as a "on the desk" replacement.

This is full Windows 8. My son has one and they're actually really cool as a drawing tablet. Because it's full Windows, you can install Photoshop, Illustrator or your drawing tool of choice. Install the Wacom drivers and you have a great drawing tablet.

Agreed.

This machine does have excellent battery life however. I routinely get over 10 hours on the battery, where the Surface Pro is I think around half of that.

Do you have a link or guide or anything on the Wacom drivers? I have not heard of this before (I've heard of Wacom, used to have a drawing tablet)

Thanks!

I have this, and I love it.
It does run slightly slow - mostly in that graphics heavy stuff (some flashier casual games) sometimes lags. For the most part, though, totally performs adequately. The SSD helps keep it running pretty fast even though the processor is a bit under powered.

I've run some casual games on this, including some stuff that isn't technically Win8 compatible (running legacy on the desktop - because YES THIS IS FULL WINDOWS - NOT RT). I use office often, mostly only Word and Excel, and both perform okay on this machine.

I like to use the pen occasionally, it's a fun toy. Usually I'm just using the touchscreen, though.

I'd also like to note that I paid twice this price (although for a new unit and it included the keyboard). The keyboard accessory is a must have, IMHO. Allows you to convert this to a full-fledged laptop - can even sit on your lap - unlike most other tablets with a keyboard.

The reason it's so cheap is the model is likely being discontinued due to being under powered. Samsung has since come out with the same type of products but with more powerful processors.

You can install anything you want on it. I'm running 2013 Pro Plus on mine. 2010 will work fine as well.

Yes, but how, literally, do you do the install? Will a USB DVD player connect, for my discs?

Sorry, yes an external DVD works on mine just fine. Or copy the files to a flash drive or external hard drive or install over the network from another computer.
