    Specs are pretty impressive with an Intel fourth-generation Haswell Core i5 processor (placed inside the hinge) and a dazzling 13.3in screen with a huge 3200x1800 resolution – that’s a pixel density of 275ppi.

    I was going to add the Christian Science Monitor until I read that they said it has a 20.3 megapixel camera. I almost fell out of my chair. Seems that they misread the sources (The Guardian.co.uk) info and did not realize that the Guardia was also mentioning the Galaxy NX camera. I sent them a note to correct it, but who knows if they will.

    Nice list btw. A+

    One of the first reviews for the Samsung ATIV Q

    Phone Arena: Samsung ATIV Q (Written) Review

    and

    Video




    I was also looking at the Q's competitor the Sony Duo 13 and noticed that mobile tech review just uploaded their review and video.
    I'll be honest, The Duo looks good and I may place it back on my list besides the Q. Its not a dual OS but maybe put on bluestacks on it and run Android. Certainly with more ram than the Q and I may not notice. lol
    Still I will wait till mobile tech review does the Q in a review.

    The review of the Q on phonearena is awful. It didn't even show how it switches back and forth from Android, which is the biggest selling point!...LOL.

    I'm keeping my eye on the Sony as well. Thing is, I may just wait for the 2nd gen of these laptops, so they can really work out the kinks and get it right the 2nd time around. The 4GB RAM on the Q scares me a 'bit. Considering the Note 3 is going to have 3GB RAM, I'm just wondering why they'd feel it'd be okay with only 4GB?...Especially on a device that they could market as a laptop replacement.

    i guess after a few complaints, they updated their video to include more info lol

    also to note is that they are claiming that out of the 4GB ram, 1.5 is for Android and 2.5 for Windows which the ratio is changeable with a slider.

    Then out of the available space in the system, 16GB is for Android.

    In the video switching seem fast and both in the write up as well as in the video

    Eek...that makes it even worse. Interchanging 8gb of RAM w/ a slider, would've made it a homerun.

    Storage partition is kinda weird. Amount lines up with Samsung's typical standard, but would that mean if I saved a movie on the partition for Windows, it wouldn't be seen when using Android? Or would the Windows storage partition act like an "external" sd, so Android would recognize SD (e.g. internal storage partition for Android), ExternalSD (e.g. Windows storage partition), and ExternalSD2 (e.g. microSD card)?

    -EDIT- Where's the revised video? I just watched the one on youtube and everything seems the same to me. I didn't see any interaction of him changing from windows 8 to android.

    Odd, seems that they took down the video.

    They have another up. Its at the end of the written review. I added the link and also a first look from Tom's Hardware in the OP.

    Two other videos, both of which show how the screen looks in a bright lit room.

    Mobile Geeks


    from German site TechHiveDe
    This one is really in a very bright lit room, you can see the viewing angles and what the screen looks like with a lot of sunlight.


    Both give you an idea of how much visibility will be reduced out in direct sunlight due to the device glossy glass screen, it is still readable compared to other devices I've seen due to the higher resolution.
