Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition review: big screen, even bigger price


So many Ultrabooks in our laptop buyer's guide: Not one with a 15-inch screen. Which is strange, because it seemed for a while that bigger-screen ultrapor

Best-in-class audio quality ; Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop ; Long battery life ; Comfortable keyboard and trackpad ; One of the few 15-inch Ultrabooks available

Expensive, even for a flagship Ultrabook ; Screen isn't as sharp as what you'll find on competing 13-inch Ultrabooks ; You could enjoy the same performance on a much cheaper machine

The ATIV Book 9 Edition is one of the only 15-inch Ultrabooks available right now, and it's a fine product indeed, with long battery life, a thin and light design and unmatched audio quality. It's expensive for what it is, though, particularly...

The audiophile features are no gimmick, but do they justify the price tag?

Excellent build quality ; Very high-quality audio subsystem ; Every I/O port you could want

Crappy audio software undermines the benefit of the audio hardware ; Skimps on memory and storage

Samsung's ATIV Book 9 is an exquisitely designed laptop with an unusually high-quality audio subsystem, but it's also very expensive.

Samsung Ativ Q has Windows 8 and Android Jelly Bean (hands-on)


The 13-inch Ativ Q is three devices in one: a Windows laptop, a Windows tablet, and an Android slate. We came to grips with it.

Samsung ATIV Q Review


Samsung blew the roof when it unveiled the ATIV Q, and not only with the record screen resolution of this convertible tablet/ultrabook device, but other novel ideas that beg to be approached with open mind, as there's barely a reference point for...

Future-proof screen with record high resolution ; Four convenient form factors in a compact shell ; Hot-swap between Windows and Android

Unorthodox keyboard arrangement; shallow key travel and no backlight ; USB 3.0 and HDMI ports are not reachable in tablet mode ; Record resolution presents issues with current app and interface scaling

As both a powerful Windows and Android tablet and notebook, the ATIV Q is the most ultimate hybrid on-the-go computing solution that Samsung has managed to produce so far. Groundbreaking display, zippy performance, easy conversion from a tablet to a...

Samsung ATIV Tab Q


Samsung ATIV Tab Q is a neat tablet that converts into a laptop. It runs both Windows 8 and Android, while its specs include a hi-res 13.3-inch screen, fast Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, front-facing camera, and 128GB of expandable storage.

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

Samsung ATIV Q


Hands-on: A convertible tablet with four forms and two operating systems, confused?

The Samsung ATIV Q is a mixed bag of tricks. Slightly too chunky to work as a designated tablet, the additional convertible options are a serious boon to its credentials. Similarly, while the need for both Android and Windows 8 OSs might not be felt by...

Samsung Ativ Q review


Is this the ultimate fusion of tablet and keyboard?

Dual OS ; Good keyboard ; Fast CPU

Heavy ; Could be pricey ; What's 'floating' mode?
