Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus review

 

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

Still too much design clutter ; Trackpad has a few quirks ; Battery life is only average

A great Windows laptop, but nothing truly sets it apart

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review

 

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 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.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Review

 

The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3E offers strong performance in an exceptionally thin form factor.

Incredibly Thin Form Factor ; Long Battery Life ; High Quality Touchpad

Expensive ; No Touch-Display

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...
