Slim and light weight have always been the advantages of the MacBook’s, a feature that no serious competition dared to come up with. But the heats on for Apple as Samsung announces their newest in their ATIV Book 9 Ultrabook series.

The processor combines with an Intel HD Graphics 5300 and also joins hands with a 256 GB SSD with 8 GB of RAM (A 128 GB SSD with 4 GB of RAM option is also available)
But above all these stunning features the display is quite something that demands a special mention. The resolution of 2560 x 1440 is quite lavish for a machine of this size but that’s not all.

The sides of the notebook measures at 11.19 inches and 8.37 inches.
The sound system in the laptop is a PC – Fi (Wolfson WM5102) integrated into the board and the notebook is also equipped with a 720p HD camera which sits on top of the HD display.Samsung has also bundled some new software packages with this laptop which includes a drawing pattern on the touch pad and also a one touch hiding facility that lets you select between windows on the press of a button. The specifications relating to the battery capacity of the notebook are not known as of now but Samsung has confirmed that the device will provide a backup up of up to 10 hours which means that you don’t need to search for charging sockets each time you open your notebooks. The ports include two USB 3.0, Micro HDMI, RJ 45 for sound out, and an HP / mic combo.
