Does this come with a stylus?

2 CPU cores with Hyper-Threading clocking at 0.9ghz, with the possibility of 2ghz !
This is old slow and outdated !!
You can get a Pro 12, Quad core 1.3ghz tablet for $200 or how 'bout Amazon having a Samsung Galaxy Tab A T580 10.1" 16GB Tablet W/ 32GB SD…: ‎1.6 GHz Quad Core ARM Cortex-A53 card…RIGHT NOW…$200 !

First, provide sources for your claims.

Next, this is Windows 10, not android.

Third, this is 128GB, 4GB RAM.

This is Samsung, not RCA

This is 12.2" 2160x1440 Super AMOLED; FHD+ display

I’d go on, but I think you have plenty to match now vs. the ridiculous alternatives you offer up.

Not all cores are created equal, porciniman. The Core m3-6Y30 in this tablet is based on the Skylake cores also found in Intel’s higher end desktop chips, and clock for clock & core for core is much faster than Atom or most Arm based chips. The Cortex A53 you mentioned is in particular is Arm’s slow but cheap core; a two Cortex A72s are actually faster than 4 A53s.

Here is a review of an Intel Compute Stick that uses the same Core m3 processor; as you can see it is much faster than any of the Atom based products compared to it.

I love all the apples to oranges comparisons that ensue.

Pretty certain it does not. They didn’t when they were sold new at retail, either. You can pick one up on Amazon for about $80-90. Make sure it is the TabProS pen or it probably won’t work.

I like that the pen is rechargeable and responsiveness is fine, but there is no good way to store it. It does not have a magnetic strip on it like the Surface pen and it’s not as slender as the Dell active stylus or Apple Pencil to fit in my generic pen case.

Does this support the S-pen at all? I have a Note 12.2 Pro so already have an S-pen. Actually, also have a Waco Bamboo pen which is more useful as a pen than the “toothpick” S-pen that comes with it.

I don’t know if this is a better or worse machine, but in the same price range $429) I just bought an Acer - new, not refurb - that I’m very happy with.

How does the i3-6100U in the Acer compare to this Samsung’s M3-6Y30? I know the Acer’s battery life is not rated as long.

From a usability standpoint, the Acer’s adjustable kickstand has been very comfortable and I find the keyboard to be just as good as my other laptops. (I almost never use it as a tablet.)

Can someone help me out here? I’m intrigued, but it appears that connectivity/expansion/storage is limited.

There doesn’t seem to be a MicroSD card slot in this. And looking online, there seems to be some differences in the descriptions between what type of USB port this has in it. Is it a single USB 2.0 port or is it a USB C port?

The manual is here:

But it’s… lacking in detail about the USB port.


It has a USB-C port.

I have a Wacom Bamboo Feel stylus that I use on my Galaxy 12.2 Note Pro. Will this stylus work on this product. Cannot confirm compatibility on either Samsung or Wacom sites. This stylus is S-pen compatible. I see some mention of a C-pen. Is that a different standard of pen?

You need to consider CPU architecture and not just the clock speed. More efficient processors can achieve more operations in less clock cycles. What you should consider as comparison between processors is benchmarking. The M3-6Y30 has a passmark of 3051, as a comparison this is equivalent an I5-3317U, AMD A8-3800, I7-720QM. This by no means is a barn burner CPU, but for a low watt mobile device is perfectly applicable and combined with an SSD make this perfectly usable for what this tablet is designed for. The price is decent, especially if you want a real light-weight soluetion with a great screen. I bought my kids a couple Chinese tablets for around $200 (cube Iwork10) that use the Atom X5 Z8300 and they work just fine on windows 10 and their passmark is only 1202 and still on Windows 10 (and android dual boot). The M3-6Y30 is a much better processor and if this were around, I would have spent the extra $$ on this instead.

What does everyone think about the refurbished condition? (Are these simply corporate lease returns, or based on reviews/experience can we surmise that they all had a common failure mode and needed to be serviced under warranty?) The SM-W700NZKAXAR model has really mixed reviews on Amazon (3.2 average rating out of 139 reviews).

Here’s a nice review


Anyone know if the ram is soldered? Not a bad deal at all, but I’d have to double the ram for it to be worth it to me.

These were refurbished by Samsung, but sold without a Samsung warranty.

I got my shipment yesterday. The tablet would not turn on. Also, the screen was cracked on three corners. Have others experienced this with the new batch that Woot shipped out?
