The $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 relatively seamless productivity. What prevents this Ultrabook from earning a higher rating are its below-average battery life and warm temperatures.

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 the new notebook has to offer is the subject of our review.
What does it take to make an $800 version of a $1,400 Ultrabook?
Source: Engadget English
The ATIV Book 9 Lite sounded like a good idea. In fact, the sales pitch was remarkably straightforward: Here's a machine that looks generally like the high-end ATIV Book 9 Plus, but costs a lot less. The problem is, the Book 9 Lite ultimately rests too much on its good looks. Take away the skinny chassis and you're left with a machine that offers sluggish performance and short battery life.

In Samsung-speak, all of the company's Windows 8 devices are now called "Ativ". The Samsung Series 9 must be rolling in its grave. The performance from the Ativ Book 9 Lite's AMD A6 processor harks back to another era. The screen is irredeemably bad, as are the speakers. If you run into this laptop, keep walking.

Source: Techradar English
We loved the price and the (almost) faithful design to the Series 9 range. The chassis is super-thin and extremely stylish, as long as you look past the redesigned lid. Overall it's a good-looking machine and at face value it knocks the socks off the competition in terms of aesthetics. Our list of disappointments reads like a naughty schoolboy's report card. The blurry, poor-resolution screen, the plastic lid, the poor benchmark scores, and the own-brand chip all make for sorry reading. Some of these negatives are simply down to cost-cutting measures, and it's important to remember that this Samsung model exists for those on a budget. But you only have to look as far as the Asus Zenbook S200 or the VivoBook S400 for an altogether more impressive low-cost machine.

Provided you can tolerate and average screen, this is a great buy. For the money the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite is a smart, stylish and practical laptop with very good battery life. It's not a speed demon and is no good for games, but you won't find many laptops as light and portable and a good at this price. We do recommend you buy the non-touchscreen version, though. It's £100 cheaper, a bit lighter and is identical in every other way.

72% Samsung Series 9 with a name change
Source: CNet English
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. 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 940X3G-K03DE

The latest in the Samsung Ativ Book 9 line, the Samsung 940X3G-K01DE is built to represent the pinnacle of Ultrabook glory. Its focus is on high-end design, quality materials and high-end performance, and it has a price to match. The sleek metal casing comes in gun-metal grey. A plastic wrist rest provides comfort for long hours of use, the keyboard is backlit and the touchpad is buttonless. Under the hood is the energy efficient Haswell Intel Core i5-4200U that clocks in at 1.6 Ghz, and goes up to 2.6 Ghz with Turbo Boost. Paired with 4 GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, fast boot times and zippy performance for most moderately intensive tasks and multitasking can be expected. With the graphics being handled by the Intel HD 4400, this is not a machine for serious gamers, but most casual games should run well.

The Samsung 940X3G-K01DE boasts some impressive specs in its 13.3 inch touchscreen. Not content with Full HD, Samsung have opted to provide users with a QHD screen with a resolution of 3200x1800. This may complicate matters when attempting to output visuals to another display. The fingerprint attracting glossy multi-touch screen is a good pairing with the Windows 8 OS. The weight is light at 1.387 kg and the 55 Wh battery will give users close to 8 hours of moderate use which provides a great amount of portability. With its great battery life and performance, this makes a great choice for a portable work machine. However, the minimizing of ports to save space and the QHD screen may provide some users a few barriers to ease of use.

Samsung already had the best Ultrabook on the market, and it's managed to stay on top in 2013, even as its competitors have improved battery life and performance on their own models. Like its predecessor, the ATIV Book 9 Plus is impressively thin, with an understated design and sturdy build quality.

If you absolutely must have that stunning display, then we would wholeheartedly recommend the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus. It's built to be future-proof, and you won't be disappointed with any aspect of its performance. Its price is the only area you'll need to convince yourself on. Otherwise, you might want to consider some of its closest competitors. Alternatively, Samsung has also produced a budget version of the Ativ, called the Lite, which sacrifices performance in the quest for a £500 price tag.

Samsung’s ability to put together a good-looking laptop was already assured, and the Book 9 Plus puts things beyond doubt; topping it off with such an ambitious display is a welcome bonus. However, before you rush out and drop £1,299 on it, it’s worth taking a breath: buy the Book 9 Plus and you’ll be an early adopter. Although it’s heartening to see Microsoft embracing high-definition screens with Windows 8.1, our experience suggests your enjoyment of the Book 9 Plus will depend greatly on individual application support.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite is a budget ultrabook based on the Samsung Ativ Book 9 series of premium super thin machines. In order to save money, the body is made from plastics instead of premium metals and it is powered by an AMD processor instead of the latest Intel cores. Technically it cannot be called an ultrabook, since that name belongs to Intel. Immediately, the user will notice how this machine feels. It looks sleek enough, but it cannot run away from the plastic styling that makes it look and feel like a budget laptop. The keyboard layout is good for a 13 inch machine and the keyboard is relatively comfortable to use. The 1366x768 pixel resolution is decent enough, and the touchscreen works well enough. The colors and definition are not amazing, but this can be expected on a budget machine.

The AMD Quad Core processor with 1.0 GHz performs reasonably well for most light tasks, but multitasking and heavier tasks will find this machine wanting. At this price point, there are definitely better alternatives out there. The battery life is rather disappointing, and perhaps the second most significant letdown of not having the power saving Intel processors onboard. While most similar machines out there will get you 8 hours of use, this machine manages only 5 hours. If the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite had been priced even lower than its current "budget" price, it would have been good value for the money. But as it stands, there are better options to be had.

80% Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite review: budget laptop with a SSD, slimline design and impressive battery
Source: PC Advisor English
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 attractive slimline design and impressive battery life are unmatched by just about any other laptop in this price range.

All told, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite may have a passing resemblance to the highly rated Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, but it's only skin deep. Even among other entry-level ultrabooks and desktop replacements, the Book 9 Lite has frustratingly slow performance and only middling battery life. For a better touch-screen laptop at a similar price, the Editors' Choice Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch is still the better option.

AMD processors aren’t known for their speed. The Ativ Book 9 Lite delivers good performance with productivity applications, such as word processing, Web surfing, and light multimedia usage. It delivered a Notebook WorldBench 8.1 score of 198. That puts it on a par with some of the other Ultrabooks we’ve tested, such as the Asus B400A Ultrabook (197) and the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch. It’s twice as fast as our benchmark testing unit, the Asus VivoBook S550CA. If you don’t have one of these other Samsung devices, or if you do, but don’t intend to use the Ativ Book 9 Lite as an extension of it, look elsewhere. You’ll get a higher-quality laptop for a lower price.

Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Lite derives its name from the lack of features and its lower price than its other ATIV Book 9 laptops. The problem is that it sacrifices a bit too much to be a really recommended system for those looking at a more affordable ultrathin laptop. Its performance is less than other systems in that price range.

There’s a lot to like about the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. It’s relatively thin and light, offers decent day-to-day performance, and up to 6 hours of battery life. If it weren’t for the fact that I spent $800 on my Series 9 notebook a year ago and got a model that’s thinner, lighter, and faster, it’d be a lot easier to recommend the ATIV Book 9 Lite.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite: 13.3-inch slimline notebook with a secret
Source: Reg Hardware English
I started off liking the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite. Its plastic casing didn't bother me as I appreciated its light weight and slim form factor, carrying it around a lot and rarely running out of juice. The graphics performance was also pleasing, on the whole. Even the vague suggestion that this laptop could be running a tablet chip didn't appear to be an encumbrance. Yes, I was prepared to be quite forgiving as I spent most of my time with it presuming it cost £400, which even then seemed a bit on the high side. It was only later I discovered its £500 pricetag, which rather took the shine off things for me. Surely, if you're touting a product as a Lite model, it really should be light on the wallet too – and especially so if you've something to hide.

Samsung's Ativ Book 9 Lite is only around one-third the price of the Plus model. This means a plastic chassis and cheap screen and processor, while keeping an impressively thin and light form factor. Component downgrades mean this laptop is no powerhouse but it does the job well and few laptops at this price are so thin and light.

Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite is an interesting, but failed, experiment. There are many things that we like about it; the keyboard is easy to love, the chassis is slim, and build quality is good for the price. If the Lite sold with a fourth-gen Intel Haswell processor, even a slow one, it’d be a serious contender in the budget Ultrabook market.

At £600, the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite is a rather expensive bit of kit for general use such as web browsing and word processing: these are tasks you can do with a £300 entry-level notebook, for example. However, what you're paying extra for with the Ativ Book 9 Lite is its slimline design, portability and, unfortunately, its touchscreen, which is let down significantly by mediocre display quality. It just depends whether you think portability is worth the extra money or not.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus

Samsung is one of the pioneers in ultrabooks and have been a major force in this sector for a good reason; they make excellent ultrabooks. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is dark and smooth with rounded corners. The slim body, which is only 0.53 inches (1.35 cm) makes it look very impressive. Not only is the body of the ultrabook beautiful, is 13.3 inch screen has an amazing 3200 by 1800 pixel resolution which makes other devices' HD screen look pale. The high resolution screen has breathtaking colors, above average viewing angles and responsive touch response.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with a processing speed of 1.6 GHz as well as 4 GB RAM. It also comes with a 128 GB SSD. As a result, performance is no issue.

Despite being thin, it comes with 2 USB ports, a mini VGA port, a micro HDMI port and a typical headphone/microphone jack. It is capable of wireless connectivity with both Wifi 802.11 b/g/n as well as Bluetooth 4.0 but has no Ethernet port for wired connections.

All in all, Samsung has always been one of the best ultrabook manufacturers and the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is definitely one of the better products. The only downside would be the hefty price tag. If the user can stomach that, this laptop is a great buy.

Pixel frenzy. Retina is a thing of the past. Samsung stirs up the competition with a sensational QHD+ screen and even beats the MacBook series from Apple. Comprised of an energy-efficient Haswell CPU, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD, the ATIV Book 9 Plus fights for the lead in the ultrabook sector - an ambitious undertaking.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is not only lightweight and stylish, but it also has the power to perform well. Its price is also reasonable (around $1200, street) considering all of the machines high-end features. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this system to anyone who is looking for a super-slim ultrabook running Windows 8.

80% Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus review
Source: Stuff TV English
Of course when we start criticising a laptop for having a too-high-resolution screen and not being quite powerful enough for high-end gaming, we are being overly picky. You don't buy an Ultrabook for hardcore gaming - you buy an Alienware 17 or PlayStation Vita Slim. And as far as the screen goes, well, that's more of a Windows 8.1 flaw than any fault of the Ativ Book 9 Plus. That said, this isn't quite the MacBook-beater we were hoping for. It still feels a little underpowered given its high price, and if you're after a Windows 8.1-running Ultrabook, we'd go for the Asus Zenbook UX302 instead. Still, lovely screen.

90% Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
In conclusion, it is pretty clear that Samsung managed to create a leading ultra-thin design on the market. The ATIV Book 9+ is an awesome laptop and it’s not easy to find a real competitor in the PC space because most systems either don’t have a QHD+ display, are significantly bulkier, or don’t have the level of “polish” that this laptop has. I like computers like the Yoga 2, which offers an impressive features/price ratio, but it doesn’t match the design of the ATIV Book 9+. The ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-XH72T (2.6lbs!) is also worth mentioning along with the Sony Vaio 13 Pro… I haven’t used them yet, but they look good on paper.

Overall, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is one of the most well-rounded ultrabooks we've ever seen. The notebook sports a gorgeous 3,200x1,800 display, pitch-perfect audio, and an excellent keyboard and touch pad, all wrapped up in a sleek aluminum design. And thanks to its nine-hour battery life—almost twice as long as many competing ultrabooks—the Plus will last an entire workday with juice to spare.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review
Source: Slashgear English
Utilizing the best in optimized hardware from the past several generations of Samsung notebooks and today’s finest in processing power (save the slightly more expensive Intel i7 version of this device), the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is easily one of the finest laptops on the market today. Even without the value-adding features like the ability to become entirely flat, a 10-point touchscreen, and unique connectivity options with Samsung smartphones, this notebook is well worth your time going into 2014.

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is a great ultrabook with an excellent design, lots of processing power and top-notch sound quality (for an ultrabook). But with screen contrast this low (330:1), we just can't give it five stars. Plus, it has only half the battery life of the Apple MacBook Air.

80% Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus review - Ultrabook rival to Apple's MacBook Air... and Pro
Source: PC Advisor English
The Samsung Ativ Book 9 is one of the nicer Windows Ultrabooks around at the moment with stylish design and impressive-looking specifications. But it comes at a high price and has disappointing battery life. Unless you specifically want Windows 8 and that super high-res display, you should bear in mind that the equivalent MacBook Air has better overall performance and is cheaper.

In terms of performance and battery life, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is in line with other premium ultrabooks, both in performance scores and pricing. What the Book 9 Plus offers that others do not, however, is a higher-than-HD screen that rivals Apple's Retina Display. About the only thing I can knock the Book 9 Plus for is the use of ports that require dongles, but that's not so uncommon on thinner ultrabooks. For the price, it matches the portability and performance of the Editors' Choice Acer Aspire S7 and offers the sort of resolution you'll prize when working with photos or enjoying movies. Add it all up, and the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is the new Editors' Choice for premium ultrabooks.

Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Plus is an amazing ultrabook that features a few annoyances that keep it from being nearly perfect. The super high resolution touchscreen display is its standout feature that rivals even Apple's Retina displays. The battery life has also been helped tremendously but he new 4th generation processor.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review
Source: Ultrabook News English
The Samsung ATIV Book 9 is still one of the most stylish Ultrabooks out there. It combines that with performance and productivity in a well-balanced package with no major issues to speak of. Compared to the previous version of the ATIV/Series9 Haswell it offers big battery life advantages over Ivy Bridge but we question the need for such a high DPI screen considering the issues with some applications on the desktop. Touch, we feel, is becoming more and more useful as users adapt and Windows 8 Modern UI apps evolve. It would have been nice to see AC support on the WiFi, the inclusion of the important port adaptors and maybe next time round Samsung will need to think about WiGig but as it is, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 is an extremely strong Ultrabook offering that, in many respects, leads the way.

Take a beautiful Windows ultrabook design. Add a super-high-resolution touch screen and longer-battery-life Intel Haswell processor. What could be wrong with that? If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is one of the best Ultrabooks on the market, and as of this writing, still one of the few with Haswell. From a design perspective, nothing beats the 9 Plus, and it's more visually daring than the aging MacBook Air design yet it's stately enough for business.

Source: Notebookreview.com English
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 upgrading from a netbook to this model would appreciate the larger screen and much better responsiveness. Samsung have also catered for both those who want a touchscreen notebook and for those who don't. They could well be watching the sales statistics with interest given Intel's view that touchscreen is the only way forward for the smaller notebooks.

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.

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.

Samsung reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Intel HD Graphics 4600:

Integrated processor graphics card found on a number of Haswell CPU models. Offers varying clock speeds depending on the CPU.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

AMD Radeon HD 8250: Integrated graphics card of the AMD A6-1450 APU ("Temash"). Based on the GCN architecture, integrates 128 shader units and is clocked at 300 - 400 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

3337U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 1.8 - 2.7 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1100 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

AMD A-Series:

A6-1450:

Quad-core APU for ultraportables and tablets. Codenamed "Temash", it is based on the Jaguar architecture and integrates a Radeon HD 8250 graphics card.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

3537U: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q1 2013. Offers a core clock of 2.0 - 3.1 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1200 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.

Samsung Exynos:

4412 Quad: Quad Core Cortex-A9 SoC with a ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphics card.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
