Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition review: big screen, even bigger price

The ATIV Book 9 Edition is one of the only 15-inch Ultrabooks available right now, and it's a fine product indeed, with long battery life, a thin and light design and unmatched audio quality. It's expensive for what it is, though, particularly considering cheaper models offer superior screen quality and similar performance.

Pros
  • Best-in-class audio quality
  • Thin and light for a 15-inch laptop
  • Long battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard and trackpad
  • One of the few 15-inch Ultrabooks available
Cons
  • Expensive, even for a flagship Ultrabook
  • Screen isn't as sharp as what you'll find on competing 13-inch Ultrabooks
  • You could enjoy the same performance on a much cheaper machine
