    Has anyone opened the Ativ Pro 700t and been able to put it back together correctly as I would like to upgrade the SSD to 256GB mSATA? It is not like the previous Series 7 from what I can tell in other disassemble threads. Thank you in advance for any help.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I have one in my hands and it doesn't seem like it is at all user serviceable. Searching the net haven't found anything about opening it up or replacing the battery....I guess this thing hasn't been out long enough. I thought the user manual may mention how to remove the battery for disposable, but it just says to call customer service when the thing stops charging....not helpful at all.

    If there is no hope of replacing the battery, I think I will be returning it.

    The 64 GB memory is a eMMC chip incorporated into one the circuit cards, it is not an SDD unit that can be switched.

    You can get a Service Manual from Samsung Parts, Accessories, DLP TV Lamp, Remote Controls, AC Adapters for about $40 (includes $13.25 S&H!!!). Part of the manual is a rehash of the User Guide you get with the PC. It contains instructions on the disassembly with many photos (small and poor quality). You need a special Disassembly Jig (Jones-700TC COMMON) to pop the back off. Instructions are given where to begin popping open the back along the edges.

    The PC contains two separated batteries wired together. It seems batteries last a long time. I never met anyone who has had to replace them in their iPad 1's. Even Apple requires you let them do the service.

    I too was hoping to upgrade the memory by SDD replacement.

    I think you may be referring to the older 700t as the ATIV Smart PC Pro 700t just came out in the last couple of months and I do not see any parts listed on the website you noted for the XE700T1C model which is the one in question. If I am mistaken, please correct me, FYI, I have the Pro version which has 128GB SSD in it.

    I have a 500T and was referring to the Service Manual for it. I see that you can also get one for the 700T (several model numbers listed) from Samsung Parts, Accessories, DLP TV Lamp, Remote Controls, AC Adapters. The manual looks like it is a standard format with details filled in for a specific model. I am assuming the 700T also uses eMMC memory chips. Perhaps I am wrong and the 700T uses SDD drives.

    Hello,

    can anyone help me in knowing if this tablet can do voice call? I want to get the 3g and 4g version and use viber, and what's up with it. I can't find anywhere in the specs the band for this tablet. I hope it is not for data only.

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure it will be for data only...but the apps you mentioned only use data...Skype will also obviously work on windows 8.

    You absolutely can upgrade the SSD with any mSATA SSD on the 700t. I know this because I upgraded mine already...

    Could you share how you opened the unit? Again this is for the new ATIV Pro 700t running Win 8 Pro x64 , the XE700T1c model.
