If you read our review of Samsung's new flagship Ultrabook, the ATIV Book 9 Plus, you know we mostly adore it: it's exceptionally thin, runs cool and rocks a best-in-class display. Unfortunately for some of the nerds reading Engadget, the laptop launched in the United States with just one configuration option -- a Core i5 model with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. Not good news for people who want bragging rights, or who need more storage, or who just like having choices. Now, at least, you get two options. Samsung just announced it will start selling a Core i7 version in the US, complete with 8GB of memory and a 256GB drive. Those specs bumps aside, this is otherwise the same laptop, with a low-glare, 3,200 x 1,800 screen and an aluminum chassis weighing in at 3.06 pounds. It won't actually be on shelves until early November, but you can pre-order it today for $1,800.
