Samsung-ATIV-Book-9-Style-back

We hit the German trains in about an hour and head in the direction of Hannover and CeBIT 2014 where we’re expecting to have more business-focused PC experience compared to last weeks consumer-focused MWC. First out of the gate is this Samsung Ativ Book 9 Style that Mobilegeeks has the scoop on.

The Samsung Ativ Book 9 comes with a full-HD screen, 128GB SSD and is available in black or white.  Unfortunately there’s only a 4GB version available and no pricing has been given.  Full specs. below.

WP_20131121_11_05_43_ProThe Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is here and I’ve been using it for four days. It’s a fantastic little machine with a few things that you’ll have to watch for; Micro ports being one of them, the screen being another. Yes, that 3200×1800 screen has not one, but two down-sides.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus (QHD Screen, Haswell) Unbox and Overview

Tags: , , , , , , ,


 

ATIV-Book-9-PLUS

One of the best Ultrabooks of the 2012/2013 phase was the Samsung Ativ Book 9. It got even better with Haswell and a QHD screen in the following version. It’s a stunning bit of kit that I’ll be testing fully over the next week or two.
In the meantime, enjoy this overview video and feel free to ask questions. Price is currently about $1399 for the 128GB/4GB/QHD/Core i5 version. It’s not cheap and one could argue that for that price you shouldn’t have to carry adaptor cables but despite that, the quality, efficiency and style should fit with a lot of customers.

[UK] Bargain – Samsung ATIV 500TC 64GB with Keyboard. 399 Pounds

I’ve got one of these with 3G and I can vouch for it as a very good Clovertrail-based 2-in-1. I’m putting together a more detailed article about the ‘old’ Clovertrail tablets but as I was scanning through prices I found this Samsung ATIV 500T which stands out as one of the best deals by far in Europe. 399 pounds buys you the Tablet with Digitizer and Keyboard dock.

The Samsung Series 7 is, in my eyes, one of the best Ultrabooks out there right now. It combines some of the best elements of Ultrabooks in one tidy package. I had a chance to check it out at CeBIT last week and I’m now sure it will be high on the list of many readers over the next 6 months.

I’ve just got back from CeBIT but there are a number of experiences I still have to tell you about. Most are already in my YouTube channel so check that out. Here’s one that I think many of you will be looking at if you’re considering mobility and flexibility. The hybrid laptop, dockable Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro is effectively an Ultrabook crammed into a tablet and a docking station with keyboard and USB ports.

I must be nuts. I’ve just paid 900 Euro for an Atom-based notebook. Or am I?

2013-02-20-1636

A few days ago I bought the Samsung ATIV 500T after a disappointing time with the Lenovo Lynx keyboard (of all things Lenovo!) The unboxing went well until I spotted a connectivity problem between the dock and the tablet. I really wasn’t very happy. Today I swapped it out for a new one. I also spotted the 3G version in stock so I end up paying 899 Euro. It’s more expensive than at other retailers too although, for you US people, it’s a business sale which is 19% tax-free here in Germany.

Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T Unboxing, Test and another Keyboard Problem.

Tags: , ,


I took the Lenovo Lynx back to my retailer today (because of this keyboard issue) and came away with a Samsung ATIV 500T and docking keyboard. I’m desperately looking for a good, long-battery life Windows 8 Touch writing / blogging laptop and even though the Samsung ATIV 500T is expensive and doesn’t come with an additional battery in the keyboard dock I decided to give it a try. I’ve unboxed it, presented it and tested the keyboard in the video below. I’ve also hit a deal-breaker. The connector between the keyboard and the tablet isn’t working properly and the keyboard disconnects if you move the tablet. You have no idea how annoyed I am at Samsung. The rest of the device was looking near perfect (Note:for me.) Sigh!

At this stage I’ve simply pushed the ATIV to the side of my desk. Clearly it needs to go back to the retailer again but I just can’t face going back-and-forth because of  poor quality control on an 800 EURO ATOM-BASED convertible. Why should I waste my time? You’ll see my frustration on the video.

I’ll continue to try and get hold of test models for UMPCPortal but I’m pulling out my 800 Euros investment until I can be 100% sure of a good product.

The Dell Inspiron 15Z Touch is here for a review (with an Nvidia GT630M GPU) and out of the blue, a Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch (with SSD) turned up today too so as is the law around these parts, I unboxed them for you. Actually I took 15 minutes to take a good look at both and, ahem, dropped the Samsung Series 5 in the process!
