Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition review | Engadget

17 Reasons For

Good Brand

Laptops produced by Samsung are some of the better laptops according to average expert and user reviews.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This portable PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on portable PCs of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of similar spec laptops that are a comparable age to the ATIV Book 9 range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz. The ATIV Book 9 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (2.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the ATIV Book 9.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Asus UX303UB (2.5GHz and higher rated) or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£870.00) (2.6GHz and cheaper), or the Lenovo ThinkPad T450 (£996.21) (2.6GHz and cheaper).

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

The ATIV Book 9 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to it. Most comparable spec laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. In addition, this portable PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. The best memory clock speeds supported by processor of all comparable spec laptops that were released around the same time as the ATIV Book 9 is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Battery Life

With a battery life of 12.5 hours, the ATIV Book 9 has one of the longer battery lifes amongst medium processor core notebook PCs of this age. Comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the ATIV Book 9 have battery lifes of between 2.5h and 24h.

Laptops with a longer battery life that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£1,070.40) (14h and higher rated) or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£870.00) (14h and cheaper), or the Lenovo ThinkPad W550 (£1,021.98) (21.8h and cheaper).

Fairly Big Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the ATIV Book 9. Laptops of this age and spec have internal memory of between 2GB and 16GB, and the average internal memory is 6.3GB.

If this medium processor core notebook PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo T450s (£982.61) (12GB and cheaper), or the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 (£1,183.19) (12GB and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most portable PCs of a similar age and type to it. Most notebook PCs that were launched around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium amongst all comparable spec laptops that have been around for around the same time as the ATIV Book 9.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of notebook PC.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the T450s (£982.61), the X250 (£420.00), or the T450s (£982.61) all from Lenovo.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (£1,529.99) (SSD).

Intel Core I7-5xxx Processor Family

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 has a better processor family than most notebook PCs of a similar spec and age to it. This laptop has an Intel Core i7-5xxx processor family, whereas most laptops that have been around for a similar time to it have an Intel Core i5-5xxx processor family. Medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year processor families range from AMD E to Intel Core i7-4xxx.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age, the ATIV Book 9 has a front camera.

We compared all the other portable PCs with a front camera to this portable PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the HP EliteBook 850 G2 (£1,320.70), and the Lenovo X240 (£1,299.89) is also worth considering.

We compared all the other notebook PCs which also have a front camera to this portable PC and we think the HP EliteBook 820 (£1,338.35) is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

Unlike most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year which do not have a touch sensitive screen, the ATIV Book 9 has a touch sensitive screen.

We compared all the other laptops with a touch sensitive screen to this portable PC and we think the Lifebook U745 (£1,183.19), and the Lifebook U745 (£870.00) both from Fujitsu which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen that you might want to consider include the DELL XPS 13 (£899.00).
