Reviews for the Samsung 940X5J-K01US

84% Rare big-screen ultrabook at a premium price

For anyone tired of working day to day on a small screen but still wants a high-end, thin-and-light with a long, long battery life, the Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition is one sweet system. It ain't cheap, though, and you'll probably need to come up with some combination of external and cloud storage to compensate for its 128GB SSD.

70% Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014 Edition) review: This laptop sounds as gorgeous as it looks
Source: PC World English
The Samsung ATIV Book 9 is one of the sexiest laptops to come through the Lab this year, but it's expensive for the processing power, memory, storage, and video resolution it has to offer. If you're passionate about high-quality audio, this laptop's premium price tag is probably justified. Just be sure to install Foobar2000 and its WASAPI component before you plug in your favorite headphones.

When we reviewed the 13.3-inch Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus$1,247.00 at Amazon late last year, we called it "a near-perfect ultrabook." Resolution has fallen from quad HD to mere 1080p, but otherwise Samsung's ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition boasts everything we loved about the Book 9 Plus—a svelte aluminum shape, stellar keyboard, crystal-clear audio, and great battery life—in a larger 15.6-inch build.

While I was sad to see that the Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition didn't offer the same higher-than-HD screen seen on the previous Book 9 Plus, it was one of the only disappointments in an otherwise premium ultraportable. The slim design and sturdy aluminum build is just as impressive as ever, and the larger 15.6-inch display offers more screen real estate in roughly the same package, not to mention the all-day battery life, a healthy port selection, and improvements to the keyboard and sound quality. The Toshiba Kirabook 13 i7s Touch is our Editors' Choice for high-end ultrabooks, largely due to its own 2,560-by-1,440 resolution screen and lightweight magnesium construction. It takes the top spot due to its premium features, but the new Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition comes in as a close second, and is recommended for anyone who wants a premium ultrabook, but doesn't see the need for a higher-than-HD display.

With its long battery life, solid performance, gorgeous display and attractive design, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014 Edition) is a strong choice for anyone looking for a highly portable 15-inch notebook. Though the Book 9's sleek aluminum chassis and high-res touch screen justify this machine's high, $1,499 price, we wish the laptop offered more graphics oomph or a faster CPU.

Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 is essentially a 15-inch MacBook Air. If you’ve ever wanted such a thing, well, here’s your chance to own it, albeit with Windows 8.1 instead of OS X. The ATIV Book 9′s razor-thin profile, minimal heft, and bright display make it more portable than some 13-inch Ultrabooks, yet it still provides the space and comfort of a large, mainstream laptop.
