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: 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: 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
Summary: Great laptop overall. Love the case feel and look. The laptop is light but relative to the ATIV 9 Plus I own it's a bit heavier. Overall for $400 less this is a great laptop I would highly suggest if you didn't have it to spend.
Pros: Excellent look and feel, Moderately Light, Nice screen, Small Size
Summary: I would recommend this laptop to those who are looking for more school work kind of laptop. It has very nice hd display and the touch screen is responsive. The keyboard gives good feedback. Not the best but good enough. The fan is not too noisy. It only kicks in after watching hd maybe 3 min video. Overall, good laptop.
Summary: I am switching back to Windows after being a Mac user for the last 10 years. I'm still getting used to Windows 8 but I am impressed so far and enjoy using it with the touch screen. The combination touch screen and keyboard laptop definitely makes a lot of things faster. The screen is great quality, my only word of warning would be that older eyes may want a larger computer.
Summary: I got it less than a week ago so I don't no about long term, but for short term it is perfect. Its a little expensive, but being a Samsung product you know your getting a quality product, not just a low priced Ultrabook that will break within a year.
Summary: Have had this laptop for 2 months now. Its almost completely unusable. Laggy, unstable, glitchy, heavy, flimsy, screen bleed thru, unstable, slow, hot...... I am a Samsung fan and purchased this laptop thinking it would have the quality of my last series 9. I was completely wrong. This is a terrible computing experience. In addition to the hardware garbage windows 8 is about as good a a rotten corpse.
Cons: Poor quality, Too big, Did not meet expectations, junk, garbage
