The new Samsung ATIV book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K01US is Samsung's best notebook so far.. Light, sleek and beautiful in an all aluminium case. Its LED QHD+ screen is the first 3200x 1800 pixel laptop screen we've ever reviewed. It is a little over half an inch thick and a bit over 3 pound weight. It comes with a Haswell i5 processor and a large 128GB SSD as storage. Battery life is very impressive at 7.5 hours in normal use.

You'll get powerful and fast performance with energy efficiency from its Intel Core 4th generation- Haswell i5 processor 4200U at 1.60 GHz speed up to 2.60 GHz with Turbo Boost function, and ease of multitasking with its 4GB DDR3 RAM. You'll be able to boot up in less than 6 seconds and wake up from hibernation in less than a second- so it is super fast! 128GB SSD is rather big too. For those that are not familiar with solid state drives, SSDs are different to SATAs, you may see other computers having 1000GB hard drives and think why this is only 128GB. SSD is a completely different technology that works differently and definitely times faster than SATAs, so your laptop will function much better than a laptop with a standard 1TB SATA.

Very sharp and bright (350nit SuperBright Technology )13.3 inch screen LED QHD+ at 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution, 16:9 cinematic ratio, 10 Point Capacitive Touch Screen with HD Graphics 4400 is simply amazing with the best viewing angles and it lets you have extremely vivid and sharp images even outdoors in the sun. Sound quality is quite impressive too with SoundAlive effect, HD Audio and 2 x 2W speakers. 80 key backlit keyboard with touch pad with multi touch gesture is rather user friendly. It comes with Windows 8 (64-bit) operating system- which is lovely to use with such a beautiful touch screen. Battery Life is up to 7.5 hours in average use from its 4 cell ion battery.
