-Trackpad sucks -Sound is terrible
12 December 2014
Summary: Pros: -Super thin and light -Decent battery life -Very quiet Cons: -Trackpad sucks -Sound is terrible. You can barely listen to anything unless you use headphones If you want portability and don't need a lot of power then get this. But if you have 400 extra dollars to spend better get a MBA instead.
Summary: I am not an IT expert, hence this review is mainly for those who perform simple everyday tasks with their machines. To begin with, I had this machine for only month before I returned it. One thing to point out first is its gorgeous looks despite being plastic; there wasn't a person who didn't compliment it the first time they saw it (I purchased the white version). That is however where it ends.
Summary: I like the keyboard - a lot. The construction is good and the size is almost exactly the same size as an iPad, but thicker. The display is OK and the trackpad is too sensitive. The problem is that the system is sluggish. I suggest setting power management to maximum performance to get halfway decent performance. I don't like that memory is not expandable beyond 4GB - 8GB would help improve multitasking and graphics. The Samsung bloatware is annoying as well.

Summary: The computer itself is very, very nice. I was really thinking I made a great purchase for the first two days of ownership. Samsung's mistake was putting a Microsoft operating system on it. Win 8.0 looked great and I thought it was significantly better than any other Windows version. That was until early this morning when I started doing the Windows Updates so I could get it to the point where it could be upgraded to 8.1. That was a mistake!

Summary: I'm pretty disappointed; I'm currently typing this review on a 3 year old Macbook Air, base model, that seriously outperforms this brand new Samsung ATIV. I understand that this is the base model as well, but even for logging on, booting up, and opening web browsers this is painfully slow and laggy. Keep in mind this is only contextual, as I haven't used any other laptop than my 3 year old Macbook Air since I've purchased it.
Summary: This one is overestimated... I don't know why but I recommand ATIV Book 4. I bought both of ATIV Book 9 and ATIV Book 4, but for ATIV Book 9, I recovered Window 3 time in 6 month... Use ATIV Boo4....
Summary: I received the laptop today and this is my feedback (Beats me why the memory was not talked about in the reviews) LIKES - 1. Small power brick (fits in the palm of my hand) 2. Touch screen is smooth 3. Performance of apps is good (but not the same for desktop programs) 4. 10-point touch does work albeit slowly 5. Almost instant startup from hibernation DISLIKES 1. Out of the promised 128 GB, windows shows only 102GB in explorer, and only 73GB is available for use.
Summary: Samsung is one of the rising companies in this down economy. With the success of their cell phones and television, they have broadened their horizons to ultrabooks and notebooks. This review of the Ativ Book 9 Lite is more like a first impression as I have only played around with it for two days. On the software side of things, it is a Windows 8 computer, which speaks for itself.
