    If I had to guess, the surprise is the Galaxy S4 LTE-Advanced using Snapdragon 800. Reply

    ATIV Q looks almost perfect. I would buy it if it had official Linux support. I currently have a Samsung ultrabook and the amount of BIOS and power management bugginess under Linux is simply atrocious. I swore I wouldn't buy any other Samsung product until they clean up their act and start producing non-buggy BIOS'es. So I'm now hoping that Dell, Lenovo or some other OEM with decent Linux support does something similar. Reply

    "You can use the volume rocker as a camera button"

    How about... I don't know... an actual camera button? I hate not having a dedicated camera button.

    I love those picture. Samsung's got big news for its Galaxy and ATIV ranges, and we've already seen teasers that point towards new laptops, cameras and hybrids. Thanks for sharing!
