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

 

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...

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 a good Ultrabook in its own right: It's well-designed and thin and light for its size, with solid performance, long battery life and a comfortable keyboard-trackpad combo. It's also a clear improvement over its predecessor,...

Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014) review

 

Brilliantly engineered, the ATIV Book 9 is hampered by a CPU that can be found in systems that sell for a third of Samsung's $1,499 MSRP.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition review

 

Samsung's Ativ Book 9 (2014 Edition) certainly looks and feels the part of a premium ultrabook.

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition is an attractive aluminum-clad 15.6-inch laptop made for mobility with a body that's less than 4.5 pounds, barely more than 0.5 inch thick, and all-day battery life. Its backlit keyboard and large touchpad are...

Given its $1,500 price, you may be disappointed by its lack of discrete graphics and smallish 128GB solid-state drive for storage.

A big-screen ultrabook with a long, long battery life, the Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition delivers a high-end laptop experience for its premium price.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition

 

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition should be on your short list if you want a premium, long-lasting ultrabook, but don't need a higher-than-HD display.

Slimmer, lighter design and larger display than previous iteration. Premium materials. Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB solid-state drive keep things speedy. All-day battery life. Full-size HDMI port. Sound technology geared toward...

Full HD rather than Quad HD+ display on previous model. Dongles required for VGA and Ethernet. Slightly higher price than previous iteration.

Conclusion 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...

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014 Edition) packs a 1080p touch screen and long battery life into a slim, elegant chassis.

Thin and attractive design; Colorful screen; Long battery life; Loud, clear audio ; Pricey; Limited graphics power ; The Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014 Edition) crams a 15-inch touch screen into a slim and elegant design with a long-lasting battery.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Best laptop I ever used.

 

Like I wrote earlier, I've used many different Windows XP/7/8 laptops in past 13 years and none of them have even come close to this one. Get this if you can afford it - you won't regret it.

Fast, battery life, touchscreen. Touchpad is the best one I ever used - I've used many different laptops (I work in a computer repair shop). I also have a Mac Book Pro right next to it and I prefer the Samsung's touchpad by far. It's that good. Ultra...

Samsung ATIV Book 9

 

This is a preliminary report on my experiences with this product. I will be following up as time goes by. Having owned this laptop for just a few days, I would say that, so far, I am very pleased with my purchase. I predict that it will only get better...

Great cooling (ventilation) system...NO BOTTOM VENTS ; Solidly built with impressive looks ; Great display, considering that has a glossy (touch) screen

Glossy screen ; Finicky touch pad when it comes to two-finger scrolling ; Also, touch pad (?) jumps to incorrect conclusions about what I am about to do (select). However, I think this is a problem with Win8.1 and its "predictive" tendencies ; SSD...
