Recently at the presentation event at London, Samsung also showed two ultrabooks including ATIV Book 9 Plus and its younger model ultrabook, called Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. Design of the device is similar to the older version, however, characteristic of the models are very different.
Housing of Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite is made of aluminium, but instead matte lid as in 9 Plus, it has used glossy. Because of this, it quickly attracts fingerprints and is likely to be scratched. Means, fingerprints of users left over it.
The size and weight of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite are 324 x 224 x 16.9 mm and 1.44 kg for the version without the touch screen and with touch screen thickness increases to 17.4 mm and the weight to 1.58 kg. In general, the prefix Lite in the title has no relation to the case.
Display of Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite has a diagonal of 13.3 inches with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels (117 ppi). As already stated above, the screen may be a conventional or touch. However, it shows a pretty good picture results and has good viewing angles, but it could be better if it has resolution of 1600×900 pixels. As of version 9 Plus, the display lid in ATIV Book 9 Lite can also be inclined to 180 degrees.
It is convenient to operate and lets you choose to screen the optimum angle of inclination. The cover is well fixed at any angle, and leaves hope that will last till long time without any problems.
At the core of Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite, there is a 4-core AMD processor with a frequency of 1.4 GHz, which is powered with 4 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory. Subjectively, the performance of the chip will be enough for most tasks and the device works quickly. In wireless specs, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite has Wi-Fi b / g / n and Bluetooth 4.0. Available ports in ATIV Book 9 Lite are one USB 2.0, one USB 3.0, micro-HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet and VGA adapter, and a card reader.
Keyboard in Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite is similar to the older model, but in this case it is made of a different plastic touchpad completely identical, and again, it works perfectly.
In general, Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite gives you a feeling of the budget model in an expensive housing. This causes dissonance, because ultrabook looks better than the characteristics that it can offer to the user. Perhaps by design, Samsung will surprise us with a nice price of Samsung ATIV Book 9, but so far the company is in silence about the exact price, you can stay tuned with us, soon we will update its price.
