Latest Samsung ATIVE Book 9 Reviewed

Just recently, I stormed the market in search of a laptop that can guarantee Bright and colorful UHD screen; Attractive aluminum design; Lots of ports; Solid speakers; Good overall performance. Thanks to the shop attendant I got to meet the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Pro, hence you are getting a review as my gift. *wink.

By way of description, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro is a 15-inch laptop designed for power users, The premium ATIV Book 9 Pro packs some noteworthy features, including Nvidia 950M discrete graphics, a 3840 x 2160 UHD touch screen and a top-notch design. Inside, the system is powered by a speedy Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. But the short battery life of the notebook calls for some concern.


When you pick up the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Pro you will be holding a shiny laptop WHICH PROBABLY COMES IN A BLACK ATTRACTIVE CASE. The body is constructed out of aluminum and is thin enough to give the system a pretty sleek profile. However, the matte finish picks up fingerprints and smudges too easily.

 In terms of size and weight, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro measures 14.72 x 9.83 x 0.7 inches and weighs 4.45 pounds, which makes it slightly larger than both the 2015 MacBook Pro (14.13 x 9.73 x 0.71 inches and 4.49 pounds) and the Dell XPS 15 (14.06 x 9.27 x 0.66 and 4.4 pounds),although there's only a tenth of a pound difference in heft.

 Also featuring a healthy amount of ports, including four USB connections (three Type-A and one Type-C), HDMI, a combo headphone/mic jack, and an SD card reader, the ATIV Book 9 PRO DOES ENOUGH TO MEET YOUR CONNECTIVITY NEEDS.


 Powered by an Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU, 8GB of RAM, Nvidia 950M graphics and a 256GB SSD, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus provides plenty of performance for productivity, graphics work or heavy multitasking, but not enough oomph for high-end games. This meant I had no trouble powering an extra 1920 x 1080 display while streaming multiple full HD videos on YouTube and 10 Chrome tabs open in the background.


My configuration of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro (as seen above) goes for N320,000
