Mushy keyboard

A great general purpose laptop with a beautiful display and dedicated graphics, but this is a step down from its cheaper predecessor

Samsung Ativ Book 8 review

 

A potentially better improvement is that screen resolution is now a full-HD 1920 x 1080 pixels – for many, a more suitable spec for a 15.6in screen size. Viewing angles are excellent but the glossy surface counteracts this somewhat – a shame...

We'd rather have an optical drive instead of a touchscreen but this is hardly uncommon. Nevertheless, the Samsung Ativ Book 8 is a powerhouse Windows 8 laptop. We like the smart design and usability, but you're paying a lot of money for a 2012-spec...
