Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite

Originally reviewed by 20 September 2013

Best Laptop for Students

Key features:
  • 13.3-inch, 1,366 x 768 resolution touchscreen display
  • Comfortable backlit keyboard
  • Decent 5-6 hour battery life
If you can't afford the Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus, 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.
