Samsung slims down the Book 9The high-end laptop drops to a 12-inch screen, and under two pounds.
I'm Dan Ackerman, and we're here taking a look at the Ativ Book 9 from Samsung. It's a new entry in their high end Book 9 laptop line, and this guy has got an unusual screen size. It's 12.2 inches, it's a 2565 by 1600 screen. it's, it's not a touchscreen, for that, you're gonna have to trade up to the 13 inch Book 9, but this thing is very light, it's about two pounds. Its one of the first generations of laptops that's gonna run Intel's Core M processor. And its gonna be about $1200. You can trade up a little bit more and get some more ram and a larger hard drive in there. Its gotta a couple of cool extra features in it. If you're outside and you wanna see things more clearly you can actually hit a button combo and that will knock the screen brightness way up. You shouldn't leave it like that it will run down the battery really fast. And if you want a little privacy it's got a, a an odd little privacy filter. You hit this and it'll kinda blur the image and superimpose two screens on top of each other. So if you walk away for a little bit uh,nobody can see what you're doing you know, at a glance. They sit there and stare at it, I'm sure they can figure it out. But that's the cool thing we haven't seen before either. The Ativ Book 9 is coming out in February and starts at about $1200.
