  • Conclusion: With the ATIV Book 9 Plus, Samsung can still lay claim to one of the best Ultrabooks on the market. As ever, it offers an attractive design and fast performance, but battery life is improved, and the 3,200 x 1,800 display is best in class.
  • Pros: Super-thin, well-made, Gorgeous 3,200 x 1,800 display, Good battery life, runs cool, Excellent audio quality
  • Cons: Trackpad could still use some fine-tuning, Relatively slow I/O speeds, Logos painted onto the device, One configuration

Review: Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus

Wired
16 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s ATIV Book laptops don’t go up to 10. They start at the ATIV Book 2 and they go up to the ATIV Book 9. But if you want one louder, you do have an option: The ATIV Book 9 Plus . Bargain-seekers can stop reading right now.
  • Pros: Touchscreen’s extreme brightness outmatched only by its resolution. Category-busting battery life. Solid performance, stability. Great design.
  • Cons: Expensive, especially with these specs. Weak keyboard. Outer lid attracts fingerprints. Not sure what to do with this embarrassment of pixels.

  • Conclusion: Moreover, though some consumers may balk at its $1,399 price tag, the Core i5-powered ATIV Book 9 Plus isn't much more expensive than similarly configured ultrabooks, and delivers faster performance, longer battery life and a higher resolution to boot. We think that's a fair trade.
  • Pros: Elegant aluminum design, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, Loud and clear audio, Vivid 3,200x1,800 display, Solid performance, Long battery life
  • Cons: Most programs not optimized for QHD+ resolution, Lid difficult to open with one hand

Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 128GB solid-state drive keep things speedy. Long battery life. Dual-band Wi-Fi. Hinge stands up to touch but still opens wide.
  • Cons: Limited storage capacity. Marquee software options have limited appeal. Dongles for VGA and HDMI not included.

  • Summary: If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.
  • Pros: The Ativ Book 9 Plus laptop has a sturdy, slim design, ultra-high-res touch screen, and really good battery life.
  • Cons: Costs several hundred more than we’d prefer; shrunken HDMI port; doesn’t convert to a tablet form -- strictly a laptop.
