So you fancied the wicked design of the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and its vibrant 13.3-inch 3,200 x 1,800 pix res touchscreen, but felt a little underwhelmed by the processing speed, RAM and storage departments, eh?
First of all, let me say you’re one tough to please son of a gun. Second, it’s time to rejoice, as Sammy holds the answer to all your prayers. It’s an upgraded ATIV Book 9 Plus, which can be pre-ordered already via a number of online retailers and will start shipping sometime next month.
And while the spanking new 13-incher is even pricier than the base ATIV Plus config, it probably deserves every penny of the $1,800 asked.
Not only does it retain everything that was cool and premium about its predecessor, from the display to the metal chassis and heaps of connectivity options, but it doubles the RAM (from 4 to 8 gigs), does the same with storage (256 GB now) and swaps the already zippy Intel Core i5 “Haswell” processor with a screaming fast i7.
All in all, things really can’t get much better than this in the Windows landscape, especially with the new ATIV Book 9 Plus running Win 8.1 out the box. Now it’s just a matter of who can afford it and who can’t…
