The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is a premiumultrabook with a high-resolution display, a fast processor, and a thin and light case. Now Samsung is introducing a new model that keeps all those features, but which adds a faster processor and Windows 8.1 software.
It also has more memory and storage… and a higher price tag.
The new Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus goes up for pre-order today, and it’s expected to ship in November.
The laptop features a 13.3 inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel touchscreen display, an Intel Core i7-4500U Haswell processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid state disk.
It measures 12.6″ x 8.8″ x 0.5″ and weighs about 3.06 pounds and the notebook should get up to 7.5 hours of battery life.
Samsung’s ultrabook has a black case with mini VGA and micro HDMI ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader and headset jack. It supports WiFi and Bluetooth, and there’s also an Ethernet dongle included which you can use to connect to a wired network.
At $1800, the new ATIV Book 9 Plus is about $400 more expensive than the previous model, which continues to sell for around $1400. But that model has a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
