Samsung announced the ATIV Book 9 Lite, a 13.3-inch sized laptop offering consumers cutting-edge technology, seamless convergence and unparalleled style in a slim, compact form factor. This Lite model looks about the same as the ATIV Book 9, although it’s slightly thicker, and sheds some performance to get to a lower price point. Because it uses an AMD chipset the laptop cannot claim to be an ultrabook, even though it’s very slim.
Built with cutting-edge technology, including a ten-point touch-screen LCD display, Quad Core Processor and a 128GB SSD, the Book 9 Lite balances exceptional features with overall value. Weighing three and a half pounds and measuring less than an inch thick, the Book 9 Lite is an ideal choice for mobile consumers and business travelers alike.
Samsung customers can enjoy a completely integrated experience across their smartphones, tablets and PCs, thanks to SideSync technology. The SideSync solution creates a synergy between Samsung’s mobile and PC lines, enabling users to seamlessly switch from working on their PC to their Galaxy smartphone by simply connecting the two devices via a USB cable. When connected, users can respond to a text on a mobile phone from their PC keyboard; view maps, photos and multimedia from their phone on their PC screen; make edits to files on their phone via their ATIV PC; and even drag and drop files from one unit to another. The result is a more unified experience, fewer interruptions to work and everyday life, and the ability to utilize the best features of both devices.
