Two new premium laptops

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Pro

Did you know that Samsung on Thursday updated its portfolio of laptops with two new models? one of which is the Ativ Book 9 Pro, the company's first notebook to boast a 4K resolution display.
That 3840x2160 resolution is packed into a 15.6-inch touch panel with real time HDR enhancements. It supports an "Outdoor Mode" that delivers up to 500nit brightness for better viewing in direct sunlight or otherwise bright environments, Samsung says.

The Ativ Book 9 Pro takes advantage of Intel's Skylake architecture by pairing a Core i7-6700HQ processor with 8GB of DDR4 RAM. A discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 950M with 2GB of GDDR5 memory add graphics muscle to the setup, while a 256GB solid state drive keeps data transfers and load times from bogging down the operation.

It's a thin laptop that measures just 0.70 inches high. Nevertheless, Samsung found room for four 2W speakers, a 720p webcam, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a single USB 3.1 Type-C port, HDMI output, headphone/microphone combo port, and an SD card reader. The Ativ Book 9 also features 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a backlit keyboard, and up to 6.5 hours of battery life (measured with MobileMark 2014).

Samsung also announced the Ativ Book 9 Spin, a 13.3-inch laptop with a QHD+ display (3200x1800). Like the Pro, it sports real time HDR enhancements and supports an Outdoor Mode, with brightness cranked up to 700nit.
The standout feature is a 360-degree hinge that gives the Spin its name -- it supports three orientations, including that of a traditional laptop, a tented mode, and tablet when folding the display all the way back.
Skylake arrives courtesy of a Core i7-6500U processor with integrated Intel HD Graphics 520. It also has 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, two 2W speakers, 720p webcam, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, microSD card slot, headphone/microphone combo port, power and volume buttons, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a backlit keyboard, and up to 7.3 hours of battery life.
Both systems come with Windows 10 Home.
"Our new laptops show Samsung’s continued dedication to providing the best options for consumers so they can stay fully connected and productive from anywhere," said Gary Riding, senior vice president, Mobile Computing at Samsung Electronics America. "The Pro and Spin both feature gorgeous touch screens, lighter designs, and seamless connectivity within the Samsung ecosystem and represent our continued effort to innovate in the PC market."
Samsung says the Ativ Book 9 Pro and Spin will be available this month for $1,599 and $1,399, respectively.
