  • Summary: - Samsung's ATIV Book 9 Plus is an amazing ultrabook that features a few annoyances that keep it from being nearly perfect. The super high resolution touchscreen display is its standout feature that rivals even Apple's Retina displays.

  • Summary: Two years ago, Samsung launched its Series 9 ultrabook and proved the company could design a thin and light notebook that is both beautiful and powerful. Since the launch, Samsung has unified its Windows PCs under the ATIV brand and continues to innovate and build on the popularity of the Series 9.
  • Pros: QHD+ (3200 X 1800) touch display, Solid construction & very thin, SD slot, micro HDMI port, & Gigabit wired Ethernet
  • Cons: Preloaded apps, Single 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.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus review

theverge.com
13 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Two years ago, Samsung’s Series 9 represented a sea change. It was one of the lightest, thinnest, best-looking laptops ever made, and Samsung made it powerful too. It was the first ultrabook to be both really beautiful and really good, to prove that Apple hadn’t discovered and hidden some magical...
  • Pros: Beautiful chassis, Attractive, high-res display, Solid performance, Good keyboard
  • Cons: Still too much design clutter, Trackpad has a few quirks, Battery life is only average

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus

CNET
15 October 2013
  • 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.

Review Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus 940X3G Ultrabook

Notebookcheck
9 October 2013
  • Summary: Pixel frenzy. Retina is a thing of the past. Samsung stirs up the competition with a sensational QHD+ screen and even beats the MacBook series from Apple. Comprised of an energy-efficient Haswell CPU, 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD, the ATIV Book 9 Plus fights for the lead in the ultrabook sector - an...
  • Pros: First-rate casing rigidness and build, Outstanding input devices, Tremendous screen resolution, Viewing angle stable PLS screen, Good application performance, Low noise development, Long battery runtimes, Easy-to-clean fan, Strong speakers, Does a laptop screen with almost 6 megapixels make sense...
  • Cons: Screen's glossy surface, Middling web cam quality, No display port, High price, The ultrabook inventor Intel hasn't really done itself a favor with the reintroduced touchscreen guidelines. We think Samsung should at least optionally offer a non-touch alternative with a matte surface even if it th...

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus

2 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is one of the best Ultrabooks on the market, and as of this writing, still one of the few with Haswell. From a design perspective, nothing beats the 9 Plus, and it's more visually daring than the aging MacBook Air design yet it's stately enough for business.
  • Pros: Stunning as ever, high quality materials, super high resolution display with wide color gamut, good trackpad.
  • Cons: Not cheap, QHD+ resolution is lovely but Windows 8 and program support varies.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus review

Engadget
30 September 2013
  • 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
