Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite review: What does it take to make an $800 version of a $1,400 Ultrabook?

 

It is what it sounds like. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite, announced at the same time as the ATIV Book 9 Plus, is a mid-range version of the company's

Thin and light, especially for a machine in this price range ; Low-glare display ; Comfortable keyboard ; Fast disk speeds

Performance hiccups ; Short battery life ; Touchscreen wobbles when you touch it ; Finicky trackpad

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite review: It's like a laptop for your Galaxy phone

 

Unless you intend to take full advantage of Samsung's SideSync technology, you'll find far better notebooks on the market.

SideSync is a good feature—if you have a Samsung mobile device ; Smooth, accurate touchscreen ; Good overall performance

SideSync is difficult to set up ; Trackpad feels cheap ; Lots of bloatware

The Ativ Book 9 Lite is a good notebook if you also own a mobile Samsung device and intend to use the two together; otherwise, it's just average.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite (marble white)

 

Sometimes it's pretty hard to tell what constitutes "low-cost" in a laptop. There are doorbuster, underpowered computers for $300, plenty of perfectly decent bargains for $500 , and a wide swath of ultrabooks and gaming PCs that'll get as expensive as...

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite has a touch screen, feels reasonably sleek, and handles everyday tasks reasonably well.

A plastic design, underwhelming display and battery life, and underpowered AMD processing.

Samsung’s latest budget spin on a Windows touch-screen, AMD-powered, ultrabook-esque laptop has some flair, but the corners it cuts aren't worth the money saved.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite review

 

Netbooks may be dead, but the idea of low-voltage computing hasn't been buried with them. On the contrary, it's now mainstream, and some laptops that don't earn the Ultrabook label now ship with low-voltage processors rather than more powerful (and...

Good build quality ; Excellent keyboard ; Very thin and light ; Cool and quiet operation

Very poor performance ; Battery life is only competitive at load ; Lackluster display ; Overpriced

Well-built and boasting an excellent keyboard, the ATIV Book 9 Lite could be a real contender among affordable laptops. Unfortunately, it’s let down by the processor, which offers netbook-grade performance and merely average battery life.

A glossy finish can't mask this Samsung's shoddy performance.
