Review Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite 905S3G-K01DE Subnotebook

 

Ultraslim - the AMD way. Samsung's rather expensive ATIV Book 9 Plus was released some time ago and has been called the "most beautiful Ultrabook" by some. The ATIV Book 9 Lite uses AMD components and is offered at a more palatable price point. What...

Thin and elegant; Reasonable stiff base unit; Matte display panel; Good keyboard; Quiet even under load; Low power consumption

Comparatively low performance; Low battery capacity hampers battery life; Pricey

We still don't know how Samsung modified the quad-core APU. Subjectively, the performance of the SSD-equipped notebook is quite good.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite (NP905S3G) User Review

 

At its current price the Book 9 Lite doesn't deliver a good value for the money.

Non-glare non-touchscreen (a glossy touchscreen version is available for those who want it) ; Cool and quiet ; Reasonably affordable ; SSD with 10 second startup time

Relatively slow CPU ; Moderate battery capacity ; Needs special dongles for the network and VGA devices ; Limited potential for hardware upgrades

What were Samsung thinking of when they designed this notebook? Perhaps it is aimed at those who desire portability, ease of use and modest computing power while wanting something bigger than a tablet with a keyboard, all at a reasonable price. Anyone...

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite review: A cut-price ultrabook experience

 

Summary: The 13.3-inch Windows 8-based Ativ Book 9 Lite looks like an ultrabook and comes with an attractive price tag, but has Samsung cut too many corners in pursuit of affordability?

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

Expensive, No Touch-Display

Instead the Samsung ATIV Book 9 focuses on one very specific function. To offer as much performance in as small a form factor as possible. With its durable and incredibly thin design and long lasting the battery the Samsung ATIV Book 9 is ideal for...

Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite NP915S3G-K01 13.3-inch Touch Screen Notebook Review

 

Samsung's ATIV Book 9-Lite slots in somewhere between mainstream laptop and tablet on steroids, thoughat first glance it looks unassailably like an Ultrabook.

Elegant, lightweight design, Comfortable keyboard and touch pad, Good speakers, Innovative SideSync software

Painfully slow performance, Keyboard not backlit, Installing SideSync is tricky

Even if you have to spend $100 or $200 more, we consider it worthwhile to opt for a Core i3 or Core i5 touch ultrabook. (At this end-of-September writing, Lenovo was offering a Core i7 version of the IdeaPad U310 Touch for $799.) The Lite may trick...

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite has a good solid-state drive, attractive slimline design and impressive battery life.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite

 

Samsung creates an almost perfect budget laptop

Stylish design and solid build, Comfortable keyboard, Decent battery life, Excellent value

Very average screen, Slightly sluggish processor

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite review

 

The Samsung Book 9 Lite certainly has its flaws – its low-grade display means limited viewing angles that would be unacceptable in anything other than a budget laptop. However, its performance is rescued by that solid-state drive, while its...

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite Notebook Review

 

Ultrabook-type design, Touch-screen, >6 hours of battery life, Lightweight build, Good price for a basic system for web-browsing

Slow A4/A6 CPU makes this system only suitable of light use, Touch-screen can feel a bit unresponsive

Since their first release on to the market, Intel’s Ultrabooks and their counterparts that have AMD processors inside have paved a whole new pathway into our connected and mobile lives. Whilst a number of users are still choosing to have a single...
