Samsung Ativ Tab The Samsung Ativ Tab is undeniably a high-end tablet, and not just because of the price tag. With solid specs and a sleek, lightweight build, it ticks a lot of boxes before you even start using it.While Samsung is one of the most prolific manufacturers of Android tablets, the company has no intention on sleeping on the opportunities afforded by the Windows RT and Windows 8 operating systems.
Samsung is currently planning three different Windows tablets: the Windows RT, Wi-Fi-only, Ativ Tab; and two full Windows 8 devices: the Ativ Smart PC and Ativ Smart PC Pro. The latter two will be 4G LTE compatible; however, only the Ativ Smart PC (not the Pro) has been confirmed for use on AT&T's 4G LTE network. Specifications

VS Dell XPS 10 The Dell XPS 10 includes expandable storage and a depressible Windows button, and its $180 keyboard features plenty of useful ports as well as an extra battery.Battery life is simply excellent. In a mixed usage manual test, the XPS 10 tablet on its own lasted around nine hours. That’s a similar result to what we saw with the Microsoft Surface, and is good going for any tablet.The huge battery life is truly impressive, and it gives us hope that a concerted push from Microsoft could give Windows RT a future.In tablet mode, the Dell XPS 10 is enjoyable to hold and use, and the screen is adequate for day-to-day use, though media connoisseurs will miss the Retina-competing panels of its competitors..
But, There are a few annoying performance bugs. The base tablet doesn’t have as many ports as the Surface RT. It lacks a kickstand and its keyboard isn’t as comfortable to type on.
The bottom line: The Dell XPS 10 is a valiant effort at a Windows RT tablet but doesn’t pack enough value into its base package to favorably compete with the Surface RT. Specifications

ProcessorARM Price;$499.99 VS Asus VivoTab Smart The VivoTab ME400 is being marketed by Asus as the best of both worlds – a device that can be used for business and for pleasure. And for that we would recommend it. The Asus VivoTab Smart ME400 is as inexpensive as Atom Windows 8 tablets get, and the add-on keyboard/touch-pad combo is excellent.The Asus VivoTab ME400 is our favourite Windows 8 tablet yet – it's not as efficient as an iPad, but you can use it with your existing software and have the best of the Start Screen and traditional desktop modes on the same device.Asus claims the VivoTab Smart’s battery is good for 9.5 hours of use. We found this was right on the money. It ran for 10 hours of continuous video with the backlight set at mid-level.
But, The keyboard doesn't actually attach, which can be a hassle, and the folding magnetic cover takes practice to set up properly.
The bottom line: In a sea of hard-to-distinguish Atom-powered Windows 8 tablets, the Asus VivoTab Smart ME400 stands out a bit thanks to clever accessories.
