5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, October 28, 2012
This review is from: Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T (Tablet Only) (Personal Computers)
I am amazed at how well this runs. I never thought I would use a product with an ATOM chip in it again. The ATOM cpu has finally matured! The speakers are on the front and the loudest I have heard in a tablet or laptop. The screen is lower resolution would prefer 1080p but it does well. Do not let the 2gb ram scare you away. Windows 8 works well on just 2gb. I can open open up 15 large sites and it doesnt miss a beat. The gpu with hardware accel provided by power dvd player can handle 1080p hi10 mkv. This device can also handle 1080p flash with gpu accel. Only gets warm to the touch during heavy work loads. Battery life is outstanding for a x86 machine.

Thanks.Did you test it yourself? Because same people elsewhere had some problems with it.

Yep. They may not have GPU accel turned on in Dvd Power. Is task manager shows more then 20% cpu usage then it is not turned on in settings.
