Best Cheap Laptop for Battery LifeKey features

We loved the more expensive Samsung Ative Book 9 Plus
, but the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite
is a great much cheaper alternative. Available with a touchscreen (£599) or without (£499), the Book 9 Lite is as stylishly built as the 9 Plus and a far better looker than most £500 laptops on the market.
The 13.3-inch ultrabook packs a 1,366 x 768 resolution, quad-core 1GHz AMD A6 APU and 4GB of RAM. In general use it’s very nimble, but does struggle to handle gaming. In the battery department it manages around 5-6 hours beating a host of £1,000-plus laptops we’ve tested.
We'd opt going for the non-touchscreen one to bag yourself a great £500 laptop.
