Samsung ATIV Book 8 review: a costly, underwhelming laptop
8 March 2014
Excerpt: I think Samsung is playing a joke on me. Its US$1269 notebook, the Samsung ATIV Book 8 feels like a half-baked idea: one part Ultrabook and one part netbook.

Review Samsung ATIV Book 8 Touch 880Z5E X01 Notebook
27 September 2013
Summary: Touch update. Same chassis and hardware, different name. Samsung adds a touchscreen to a Chronos 7 series model and renames the notebook in the process. Like the predecessor, the ATIV Book 8 Touch still ships with a potent Core i7 processor and a dedicated Radeon GPU.
Pros: Very good overall performance, Handles gaming well, Lots of storage, Outstanding Full-HD screen, Very good keyboard, Pretty quiet most of the time, Good speakers, Appealing chassis, Good battery life, The Full HD display is impressive. The chassis is visually very appealing.
Cons: No SSD or SSD cache., A faster hard drive. Samsung shouldn't have tried to cut costs in this area. At a minimum, we'd like to see a hard drive with a rotational speed of 7200 RPM - a hybrid drive with SSD cache would be even better.
Summary: As we noted with the Samsung ATIV Book 6, the ATIV Book 8 offers a premium design, strong audio, excellent all-around performance, and a host of apps, such as SideSync, that will be useful for Samsung smartphone owners.
Conclusion: The Samsung ATIV Book 8 is the company’s premium effort in the popular 15.6-inch category, and it’s a fine laptop. In every category, from the display to build quality to performance, this laptop is at or near the top of its class.
Pros: Attractive design and good build quality, Good, high-contrast display, Outstanding performance in apps, Adequate game performance, Lots of storage space, Excellent battery life, Good value
Cons: Keyboard is just average, Runs a bit hot at idle
Excerpt: When Samsung released its excellent Ultimate award-winning Samsung Series 7 Chronos earlier this year, it showed that 15.6in laptops couyld combine top-end gaming power with sleek style. The Ativ Book 8 is the successor to the Chronos, but surprisingly little has changed in the intervening months.
