9 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Laptop Reviews

On average Samsung medium processor cores portable PCs have good reviews as do all portable PCs built by Samsung.

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

Most medium processor cores portable PCs that have been around 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. Across all medium processor cores portable PCs that were released around the same time as the ATIV Book 9 the best memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,866MHz and the worst is 133MHz.

SSD Storage Media

The ATIV Book 9 has a better storage medium than most notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This Samsung laptop has an SSD storage media, whereas most portable PCs that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage media. 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 media is in fact the best storage medium across all laptops of a comparable type and age to the ATIV Book 9.

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

We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the DELL Latitude 12 E7250 is also worth considering.
