Innovative Samsung is one of the greatest brands in the laptop market with reliable and good value computers. Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5E-K03US is a great addition to its ATIV Book range when it comes to build quality, speed, performance, beautiful screen and all the other great features it offers.

You will get great performance- including 3D rendering and quicker media processing from its fast and efficient Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 3230M processor at 2.6GHz speed (3.2GHz with turbo boost). 8GB RAM DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz is quite a bit of memory to multitask with even the most demanding programs. Although ATIV Book is a lightweight and slim unit, they could fit in a large 750GB SATA2 hard drive to save lots of files.

15.6 inch anti-reflective LED screen at 1366 x 768 max pixel resolution delivers impressive picture quality with very sharp images, also with Intel HD Graphics 4000 video for better graphics display. Screen is anti-reflective and has a matte surface so you'll be able to work comfortably even outdoors in sunshine. Sound is HD quality through two built-in 1.5W speakers.
