The Samsung Ativ Book M is an 11.6 inch notebook with an Intel Celeron Bay Trail processor and up to 8 hours of battery life. It’s available in South Korea for about 790,000 Won or about $767 US.
While that makes this notebook a bit expensive compared with other Bay Trail notebooks, the Ativ Book M has a few features that could help justify the price.
The notebook is powered by an Intel Celeron N2830 dual-core Bay Trail processor and features 4GB of RAM and a 128GB solid state drive. It’s a fanless system which should run silently since it relies on passive cooling and an SSD with no moving parts.
Like Samsung’s recent Chromebook laptops, the Ativ Book M also appears to have fake stitched leather on the lid.
The Windows 8.1 notebook has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, stereo speakers, HDMI output, 1 USB 3.0 port, 1 USB 2.0 port, a microSD card reader, and a 30Whr battery. The notebook measures 0.66 inches thick and weighs about 2.6 pounds.
It’s not clear if Samsung plans to offer the Ativ Book M in the US or Europe or how much it would cost in those markets if it does become available. But don’t be surprised if we hear more about this little laptop at the IFA trade show in Berlin next month.
