Samsung is bringing its super-slim 13 inch ultrabook lineup into the Haswell age. The new Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus has the same styling as the company’s earlier Series 9 ultrabooks, but under the hood it packs a shiny new Intel Core i5-4200U dual-core processor and a qHD+ high resolution display.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is also one of the first ultrabooks from the company to feature a touchscreen and a higher-than-HD display. It has an 13.3 inch, 3200 x 1800 pixel display with a capacitive touch panel.

The notebook features up to 8GB of RAM, a 128GB to 256GB of solid state storage, and the notebook ships with Windows 8.

Unfortunately the new processor and touchscreen don’t come cheap. Samsung’s Series 9 ultrabooks have always been some of the more expensive models around, and the new ATIV Book 9 series keeps up that trend. Prices for Series 9 laptops typically start at $1000 and go up from there, and based on the specs for this new model, the ATIV Book 9 will be not different.

If you’re looking for something a little cheaper, Samsung also offers an ATIV Book 9 Lite with an AMD Kabini processor for less than half the price.

  1. Just checked out their site. W in the F is the new 15in version still not HD? So close samsung. So close.

  2. Good. I’m waiting for the 15″ version of that. Exactly this one zoomed out. But not limited to 8 GB RAM and 256 SSD max. And with physical buttons on the touchpad, best if three of them. And 16:10 matte display.

    I know, I’ll be waiting for years…

  3. Seems to have better features than a MacBook Air. I doubt it’s as well made though.
