Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro & Spin Laptops

Samsung just announced the ATIV Book 9 Pro (15.6-inch) and ATIV Book 9 Spin (13.3-inch) laptops. The Pro is said to provide the power of a desktop with the practicality of a touch enabled 4K notebook. The smaller, $200 less Spin has a 360° rotating touch display, making it the smart choice for those who demand versatility.

Samsung utilizes real time HDR enhancements to optimize brightness and contrast for all content on both devices, enabling users to see clearer, crisper images and text. The Pro’s 4k display and Spin’s QHD+ display allow for a comfortable and vivid viewing experience. Both new PCs also support Samsung’s Outdoor Mode, delivering up to 700nit of superior brightness on Spin (500nit on Pro), allowing users to see clearly in even the most direct sunlight.

Both the ATIV Book 9 Pro and ATIV Book 9 Spin designs are lightweight with durable aluminum shells, making them easy to slip into a bag, briefcase or backpack to carry between meetings and classes.

Featuring a 360° hinge, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Spin (below) supports three unique modes of use: traditional laptop, tented screen and tablet. Each mode features a touch screen and technology that allows the display and keyboard to quickly adjust based on the mode, instantly increasing the user’s productivity.

Additionally, Samsung has further improved the ergonomic keyboard on both laptops by offering multiple, integrated one-touch activations for security features and easy mode switching. This allows users to shave time off tasks with easy shortcuts. The keyboard curves to fit and cradle the user’s fingers, resulting in a more comfortable and efficient typing experience.

These premium PCs both utilize Intel ultra-fast 6th Generation Core i7 processors, precisely designed for super-slim, ultra-portable and high performance devices with speeds up to 2.50 GHz (ATIV Book 9 Spin) and 2.60 GHz (ATIV Book 9 Pro). With solid state drive storage of 256GB, the devices provide ample space for all of a user’s computing and multimedia needs.

Ideal for entertaining and multimedia, the ATIV Book 9 Pro (pictured above) utilizes Wi-Fi Booster v2, so that streaming can happen even when the environment does not offer a strong wireless connection.
