Summary: This laptop is very good. Very good resolution and responsive touchpad. I have upgraded my SSD from 128 to 500. Bought a Samsung EVO and an 8G ram from Amazon and managed to install them correctly. Just watch on youtube the video on how to upgrade this and how to open the back correctly. You might encounter problem in your touchpad (horizontal scrolling will not work) afterwards but this is very easy. Let me know once you encounter such upon upgrade.
Summary: This is one heck of an ultra book. Beautifully designed, perfectly responsive, amazing! Love mine so much! Would recommend to any student or video editor like myself. I did upgrade the memory to 16 GB RAM and it was so easy to do. Not that the original 4 GB RAM wasn't enough, I just do A LOT of Pinnacle Studios and Photoshop.
Summary: After taking the unit to a local retailer of Samsung computers, who checked it out and also found it would not boot up, was told there was probably a hardware problem and that I needed to contact Samsung to have it repaired. Called Samsung and they requested I try several things prior to authorizing me to send it back to them for repair. Nothing worked, and they gave me a repair number and label for free shipping.
Summary: Got a great deal on this in BestBuy. Great quality for the price and the case is aluminum and not plastic. Weighs 3.6 lbs which I think is light in its compact form. Screen is 1080p and has good speakers for an ultrabook. Keyboard is fine, key travel isn't very good but its thin. The biggest benefit to me though is the ram on this machine isn't soldered in. You can open it up and upgrade the SSD or Ram. It has two ram slots with one filled by the factory 4gb.
Summary: With maximum portability you just cant go wrong with purchasing this ultrabook. The great battery life and performance this lovely machine offers is the exact reason why I chose this computer over its competitors.
Summary: I cannot get bit locker enabled, so it is not useful for its intended purpose...traveling. V disappointing. Samsung passed me to Microsoft. Device does have TPM chip so must use other modes. did not work.
Summary: Yeah! The title is true! My ATIV Book 9 was awesome! But I gave it away as a present and kept my Book 7 because I loved it so much. It was a little buggy with 8.1, but Microsoft promptly sent out updates to fix that. Works beautifully now. I use it for editing video, photos, and school work. I love the sleek design (very Macbookish[I know, I know gross] but it is pretty). So... good work Samsung. I am one happy camper!
Summary: I saw this laptop and took a chance having no experience with a Samsung laptop before. I am glad I did. The construction is solid, the finish is sleek, it is a beautiful piece of hardware. I immediately dumped Windowz 8 and put Ubuntu 13.10 on it with no issues whatsoever. Everything worked under Ubuntu with the exception of the keyboard backlight (not a big deal). Its fast and I have had no issues sustaining wifi connections as I have read in other forums.
Pros: Durable, full hd display, metal construction, runs ubuntu, easy to open chassis, easy to upgrade, upgradeable to 16gb ram
Cons: glossy screen has glare, no room for laptop hdd
