There are mobile devices and then there are mobile devices, and Samsung
’s latest is a doozy. The Samsung ATIV
Book 9 Plus rocks an Intel Core i5-4200U (Haswell
) processor and a 13.3-inch QHD+ touchscreen display with a superb resolution of 3200x1800.
The rest of the choice components include 4GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM, a 128GB SSD, and integrated Intel
HD Graphics 4400. There’s also a 3-in-1 card reader, integrated webcam, built-in microphone and speakers, and for connectivity, the machine offers gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and WiDi. In terms of ports, the ATIV Book 9 Plus sports a pair of USB 3.0 ports, micro-HDMI, mini-VGA (via an optional cable), and 1.8mm headphone/mic combo jack.
The ATIV Book 9 Plus runs Windows 8 (64-bit), and weighs just 2.56lbs. The price tag for all that goodness is $1,399.99; you’ll have to wait until August 20th to get your hands on one, but sites like B&H have them up for pre-order now.
