Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite

AVForums
2 December 2013
  • Conclusion: There is certainly a lot of competition in the 13-14” laptop market, especially with those offering touch screens, and because of that it’s important that a device can stand out from the crowd or offer something different to its competitors. With the rather oddly titled ATIV Book 9 Lite from Samsung they look to be offering a device which is highly portable, thanks to its thin dimensions and lightweight construction.
  • Pros: Responsive touchscreen, Thin and lightweight, Fast SSD, Good on-board audio, Very Quiet
  • Cons: Weak CPU and graphics, Narrow viewing angles, Poor display quality

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite review: What does it take to make an $800 version of a $1,400 Ultrabook?

Engadget
6 November 2013
  • Summary: The ATIV Book 9 Lite sounded like a good idea. In fact, the sales pitch was remarkably straightforward: Here's a machine that looks generally like the high-end ATIV Book 9 Plus, but costs a lot less. The problem is, the Book 9 Lite ultimately rests too much on its good looks. Take away the skinny chassis and you're left with a machine that offers sluggish performance and short battery life.
  • Pros: Thin and light, especially for a machine in this price range, Low-glare display, Comfortable keyboard, Fast disk speeds
  • Cons: Performance hiccups, Short battery life, Touchscreen wobbles when you touch it, Finicky trackpad

CNET
24 October 2013
  • Summary: Samsung’s latest budget spin on a Windows touch-screen, AMD-powered, ultrabook-esque laptop has some flair, but the corners it cuts aren't worth the money saved.
  • Cons: A plastic design, underwhelming display and battery life, and underpowered AMD processing.

  • Conclusion: Even if you have to spend $100 or $200 more, we consider it worthwhile to opt for a Core i3 or Core i5 touch ultrabook. (At this end-of-September writing, Lenovo was offering a Core i7 version of the IdeaPad U310 Touch for $799.) The Lite may trick onlookers into thinking you bought the ritzy ATIV Book 9 Plus, but appearances can be deceiving.
  • Pros: Elegant, lightweight design, Comfortable keyboard and touch pad, Good speakers, Innovative SideSync software
  • Cons: Painfully slow performance, Keyboard not backlit, Installing SideSync is tricky

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite review

Digitaltrends
6 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite is an interesting, but failed, experiment. There are many things that we like about it; the keyboard is easy to love, the chassis is slim, and build quality is good for the price. If the Lite sold with a fourth-gen Intel Haswell processor, even a slow one, it’d be a serious contender in the budget Ultrabook market.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Excellent keyboard, Very thin and light, Cool and quiet operation
  • Cons: Very poor performance, Battery life is only competitive at load, Lackluster display, Overpriced
