A big-screen ultrabook with a long, long battery life, the Samsung Ativ Book 9 2014 Edition delivers a high-end laptop experience for its premium price.
Early versions of the Dell XPS 13 had promise, but lacked must-have features. Over time, the system slowly added a high-res display, then a touch screen, making the new 2014 version an ultrabook that hits nearly all the marks.
For anyone tired of working day-to-day on a small screen, but still wants a high-end, thin-and-light with a long, long battery life, the Book 9 2014 Edition is one sweet system.
If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.
This top-rated touchscreen laptop normally sells for $999.99. And you can sweeten the deal a little further with a cashback service.
This concept design has a detachable 11-inch screen and all-day battery life, and could cost less than $800.
