Review Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus 940X3G Ultrabook

 

Pixel frenzy. Retina is a thing of the past. Samsung stirs up the competition with a sensational QHD+ screen and even beats the MacBook series from Apple. Comprised of an energy-efficient Haswell CPU, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD, the ATIV Book 9 Plus...

First-rate casing rigidness and build; Outstanding input devices; Tremendous screen resolution; Viewing angle stable PLS screen; Good application performance; Low noise development; Long battery runtimes; Easy-to-clean fan; Strong speakers

Screen's glossy surface; Middling web cam quality; No display port; High price

...is found, among others, with Apple where the potential buyer can choose either the MacBook Air 13 or MacBook Pro 13. Other alternatives are Sony's Vaio Pro 13, Acer's Aspire S7, Zenbook Infinity UX301 or Dell's XPS 13.

Two years ago, Samsung's Series 9 represented a sea change. It was one of the lightest, thinnest, best-looking laptops ever made, and Samsung made it powerful too. It was the first ultrabook to be both really beautiful and really good, to prove that...

Beautiful chassis ; Attractive, high-res display ; Solid performance ; Good keyboard

In the Samsung ATIV Book series, the company comes to a point in their history with notebooks that they're ready to go to battle with the highest-quality units in the industry. In the ATIV Book 9 Plus with 13.3-inch LED QHD+ (3200 x 1800 pixel)...

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus

 

Take a beautiful Windows ultrabook design. Add a super-high-resolution touch screen and longer-battery-life Intel Haswell processor. What could be wrong with that?

The Ativ Book 9 Plus laptop has a sturdy, slim design, ultra-high-res touch screen, and really good battery life.

Costs several hundred more than we’d prefer; shrunken HDMI port; doesn’t convert to a tablet form -- strictly a laptop.

If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus review

 

When Samsung first released the Series 9 in 2011, it quickly became one of our favorite laptops of the year. Then, once Intel threw its marketing weight

Super-thin, well-made ; Gorgeous 3,200 x 1,800 display ; Good battery life, runs cool ; Excellent audio quality

Trackpad can still use some fine-tuning ; Relatively slow I/O speeds ; Logos painted onto the device ; One configuration

With the ATIV Book 9 Plus, Samsung can still lay claim to one of the best Ultrabooks on the market. As ever, it offers an attractive design and fast performance, but battery life is improved, and the 3,200 x 1,800 display is best in class.

The ATIV Book 9 Plus keeps the slim and sleek chassis of its predecessor and adds a Retina-like display, long battery life and swift Haswell performance.

Lightweight, attractive chassis; Captivating Retina-like display; Long battery life; Compelling app suite; Runs cool

Pricey; Keyboard a bit shallow

The ATIV Book 9 Plus keeps the slim and sleek chassis of its predecessor and adds a Retina-like display, long battery life and swift Haswell performance.

The one feature that earns this ATIV its "Plus" is the touchscreen, which has a jaw-dropping 3200 x 1800-pixel resolution.
