Reviews for the Samsung ATIV Book 9 900X3G-K01

83% Review Samsung ATIV Book 9 900X3G-K01DE Notebook | Notebookcheck
Light, slim, (more) affordable. Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Plus established itself as a high-end contender in the Ultrabook category. Equipped with identical hardware, but without the "Plus" in the name and sans the reflective QHD+ display, the cheaper ATIV Book 9 retails for about 350 Euro (~$480) less.

Comment

Series: The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Series consists of high-end ultrabooks. It was released in 2013 as successor of the Samsung Series 9 laptops. The models feature up to an Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. Depending on the model, the integrated Intel HD Graphics or one of AMD’s latest graphics cards is used. In addition, there are a few SSD size options. The laptops either feature a 13.3 inch touchscreen with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels or even a bright and contrast-rich Quad HD screen. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Series models belonged to the first ultrabooks which supported Microsoft Windows 8’s touch functionality from the start. However, there is also option to choose a non-touch screen.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Series has either Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64 bit or Windows 10 pre-installed. Thus, there is no installation needed upon purchasing. Starting from 2.6 pounds (1.17 kg), the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Series models belonged to the lightest laptops at that time. The laptop is also quite thin at only 0.5 inch (1.27 cm). For wireless connectivity, it has WiFi and Bluetooth built in. As for input/output ports, it features two USB 3.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort and an SD card reader.

13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.12 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


89.5%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
