Samsung has updated the-inch laptop to the latest Intel Haswell processor and full HD touchscreen along with a name change to the ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition.
The last update to the Series 9 saw it kitted out with a 1600×900 non-touch screen and Ivy Bridge CPU but the latest update brings a name change along with Haswell chips (choice of Core i5/128GB SSD or i7/256GB SSD), a slight larger 15.6 inch full HD screen that now supports touch and a redesigned backlit keyboard which promises to be quieter.
Other improvement include a brighter display at 300 nits (up from 250), full HDMI port, aluminum chassis and a nice touch for audio lovers, lossless audio support though its headphone jack or compatible speakers.
With the newer Intel chip onboard quoted battery life is now up to 14 hours while the addition of the slightly larger display and touchscreen takes its weight up to 4 pounds and 0.63 inches thick compared to last years models 3.5 pounds and 0.58 inch thickness.
