Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite hands-on
I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a closer look at the US Version of Samsung's new ATIV Book 9 Lite laptop.
Now that lite in the name means that this is gonna be a more budget-friendly version of Samsung's usually pretty fancy, super thin ultrabook laptops that's actually looks a lot like the more expensive version to its maybe a little bit heavier but for a budget-priced laptop, this specifically model is gonna be 799 and it actually look very nice indeed.
Of course you got a touchscreen
because it's a new windows 8 ultrabook style laptop.
You've also got 4 gigs of RAM.
The budget part of it comes in part because instead of an Intel processor, this has what frankly Samsung is basically calling a white-label processor.
What it really is, is a special quad-core CPU that AMD has made specifically for this system for Samsung.
Although it's not gonna say AMD anywhere on the laptop itself.
And with that, you get AMD-- it's a pretty decent integrated Radeon graphics.
The screen is only 1366x768
screen [unk] spending $700 or $800 on the 13-inch slim laptop.
You know, that seems fairly reasonable to me.
This guy should be available at the very end of July and you can pre-order it starting now.
And that is the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite.
