Samsung’s highest spec ATIV Book Plus 9 is now available for people to buy in the USA at a pretty hefty cost, Engadget reports. Samsung’s latest notebook the ATIV Book 9 Plus currently only comes with a Core i5 Haswell CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD but the new higher spec model comes with a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The rest of the notebook remains the same and there is still that beautiful 3200 x 1800 display and the aluminium casing that is both thin and light – weighing in at just 3.06 pounds. You can pre-order the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus for a staggering $1800 in the USA.
As much as I like the Samsung brand the recently announced Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro can offer identical hardware specifications to the new higher spec ATIV Book 9 Plus for a fraction of the cost. I’d choose the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro any day as it can be had with a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 3800 x 1800 panel (which are the same specifications) for $1200.
