    I almost suggested that yesterday. It was high time someone started a New Users Guide for the Ativ!


    Repped! :)

    I'd be interested in some info on which pieces of cr_pware are considered tolerable. I got rid of Norton and all Samsung Metro apps, but I still have the following:

    - E-POP
    - SW Update
    - Settings
    - Touch supporter
    - Support center
    - User guide
    - Help desk

    So far I'm thinking of only keeping SW Update, but maybe you guys have found some use for the other components?

    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.
