Samsung Ativ Book 9 Spin review

 

This featherweight 3K Ultrabook asks for your top dollar

Featherweight frame ; Incredibly thin ; Stunning 4K screen

A bit expensive ; Limited customization options ; Mushy keyboard

Lightweight, high in resolution and performance, Samsung's latest Ativ Book 9 Spin delivers on everything you want from an Ultrabook with an extra hybridization feature.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 (2015) review

 

Samsung's smallest, sharpest and safest Ultrabook yet

Super thin and light ; Cool screen features ; Solid security measures

Pretty expensive ; Short on screen space

Be prepared to pay up for Samsung's would-be Retina MacBook Air rival, filled to the brim with security and style.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 (2015) review

 

Before Apple even announced its slim, lightweight 12-inch MacBook , Samsung had already released a nearly identical product. First seen at CES 2015, the Samsung Ativ Book 9 matches the MacBook nearly spec for spec.

Samsung fits a good number of ports into its very slim 12-inch Ativ Book 9. The system gets the best battery life to date from a Windows system running a Core M processor.

Shorter battery life than Apple's very similar 12-inch MacBook, and a matching configuration costs more. The lack of a touch screen and small touch pad aren't ideal for Windows 8.

This very usable 12-inch laptop is a good, if expensive, tool for websurfing and casual use, but would benefit from better battery life.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 review: Last year's Series 9 with a new name

 

Don't expect anything new in the Book 9, at least in the configuration we reviewed: other than a higher-resolution display, this ultrabook's an unfortunate tweener before inevitable fall upgrades.

The ; is still one of the smallest and best-built Windows 8 ultrabooks around, and has a crisp 1080p display.

It lacks a touch screen, and battery life is disappointing for such an expensive laptop.

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's ATIV Book 9: What all future Windows laptops will look like [REVIEW]

 

Gorgeously thin frame ; Ultra light ; Kickass display with very bright

Pricey ; Occasional slowdowns ; Wonky Samsung software ; Middling battery life

The Samsung ATIV Book is the yin to Apple's new MacBook yang.

Samsung's pricey new Ativ Book 9 Pro and Spin look like worthy MacBook competitors

 

Two machines with sturdy aluminum frames, plenty of ports and ultra-high-res touchscreens.

Samsung's 12-inch Ativ Book 9 is a slim laptop that doesn't skimp on ports (review)

 

The Windows mirror image of Apple's 12-inch MacBook, Samsung adds more ports, but loses battery life.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 2015

 

Both systems have 12-inch displays with better-than-HD resolutions, both use Intel's Core M processor , both have premium-feeling designs and are very slim and light, with each weighing just a hair over two pounds.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 review

 

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. In fact, it seems almost exactly the same as the 2012 Samsung Series 9 . That's because it is almost the same.
