Samsung ATIV Book 7 Review

 

Samsung announced the next step into its ultrabook line earlier this year with its ATIV brand of products expected to be released in 2013. We were introduced to the ATIV Book 9 Plus earlier this year, but that isn't the […]

Those who want the latest and greatest may want to hold off on the ATIV Book 7 as you can either purchase another ATIV ultrabook with a Haswell chip inside of it in a few weeks, or you can wait until Samsung drops the price of this ultrabook.

Samsung ATIV Book 7 review: a high-end Ultrabook arriving just before Haswell

 

The ATIV Book 7 is a good value among touchscreen Ultrabooks, with a reliable trackpad, fast SSD and lovely display. The main trade-offs are a shallow keyboard and a relatively heavy frame.

Beautiful 1080p display ; Fast transfer speeds, runs cool and quiet ; Great trackpad ; Good audio quality

Heavy for a touchscreen Ultrabook ; Flat keyboard ; No Core i7 or 256GB SSD option ; Lots of bloatware

So far, it would seem that $1,060 for a machine with a Core i5 processor, 1080p touchscreen and 128GB SSD is a pretty good deal, the lack of Haswell notwithstanding. And we're not just talking about the spec sheet, though that certainly makes for a...
