Summary: Samsung has proven that they have what it takes to make some of the best ultrathin notebooks in the industry, but the challenge for them now is to make a device that looks just as good at a more compelling price point. Their answer? The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite.
Pros: Well-built, Long-lasting battery
Cons: SideSync only works with certain Samsung phones
