Here’s a quick recap of the 4 part review (including a video for Post #4) of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite notebook on CNET Asia Tech Factor:-
Early in September 2013, Samsung Malaysia Electronics announced the availability of the lightweight, Windows 8 powered Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. “Ease of mobility”, “powerful multi-tasking”, “lightweight material in stylish design” – these were the words Samsung used to describe this mid-range, mass market consumer notebook.
When CNET Asia asked if I was interested to review the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite, I was happy to participate. Having seen the press images, read some good online reviews and heard some buzz about this device, I was so ready to geek out with a new toy!
Last week, I shared the unboxing and first impression of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. This week, let’s take a closer look at the build quality and Samsung’s claims of a stylish design for this thin and light notebook.
Hardware Overview and Build Quality
This AMD-powered notebook is marketed as an ultraportable laptop for the mid-range market. Good for the students and mobile professionals who need a light and functional machine for web browsing, Microsoft Office applications and occasional multimedia functions.
Having done the unboxing and taken a closer look at the hardware of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite, in this week’s post, I cover the features and performance of this 13.3”, AMD-powered, Windows 8 touchscreen notebook.
Power on in 8 seconds, wake up from sleep in 2 seconds
One of the greatest thing about the ATIV Book 9 Lite is Samsung’s promise that the notebook powers on in 8 seconds, and will wake up from sleep mode in less than 2 seconds.
This is one of the most impressive feature, in my books. I put that claim to the test.
Having used the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite for about a month now – at work, for blogging and at play – I can seriously say that I’ve had multiple compliments about the stylish design of this mid-range notebook. This thin and light notebook allowed me to carry it around without straining my back (or shoulder) which is what I’m really most excited about.
Finally, this is the fourth and final post on my review of this ultraportable Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite – fromunboxing, to hardware review , to features and performance – and now, I share some insights on how this has served me very well indeed over the last month.
