Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite


The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite entry-level DTR laptop has a great looking design, but with mediocre performance, it's all sizzle, no steak.

Slim chassis and lightweight design. Affordable price. Speedy solid-state drive

Lackluster battery life. Miserable performance from Samsung's mystery processor

As most any parent will surely agree, no two children are alike, not even within the same family. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite looks a great deal like the premium Ultrabook Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, our Editors' Choice for high-end ultrabooks. The much...

Samsung Ativ Book 9


Windows 8 laptops with touch are everywhere, but don't tell the Samsung Ativ Book 9. This laptop doesn't seem to have gotten the memo. In fact, it seems almost exactly the same as the 2012 Samsung Series 9 . That's because it is almost the same.

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 is still one of the smallest and best-built Windows 8 ultrabooks around, and has a crisp 1080p display.

It lacks a touch screen, and battery life is disappointing for such an expensive laptop.

Formerly the Samsung Series 9, the rebranded Ativ Book 9 got little more than a change in name; the laptop feels dated, as it lacks a touch screen and the benefits of newer Intel processors.

It’s hard to find many faults with the Samsung ATIV Book 9, as the ultrabook manages to do most things fairly well. The most serious issue that can be raised against the device is its cost. While many of the features of this device are fantastic, many...

Samsung ATIV Book 9


The Samsung ATIV Book 9 keeps the lightweight chassis of the previous generation and adds a full HD display, but relatively short battery life and high temperatures give us pause.

Attractive lightweight chassis; Vivid full-HD display; Solid graphics and performance; Samsung SideSync app integrates Samsung Android devices with the PC; Fast boot time

Below-average battery life; Runs hot

Click to EnlargeThe $1,399 Samsung ATIV Book 9 maintains the svelte dimensions of its predecessor and adds a 1080p display and a more powerful processor. Samsung's SideSync technology enables integration between Samsung PCs and Android devices for...
