Samsung updates its Ativ Book 9 Lite notebook

Every new year brings new challenges to hardware makers around the world and in most cases these challenges are in the form of software with higher demands. So if you want to stay competitive you must update the hardware that you sell.

This is exactly what Samsung plans to do with its Ativ Book 9 Lite notebook. In fact an update is more than mandatory since the first version of this nice little notebook came out full two years ago – in November 2013. As expected the new version of the Ativ Book 9 Lite will offer more powerful hardware inside, which will take it closer to its more powerful brother – the Ativ Book 9 Plus. Here are the changes – Ativ Book 9 Lite 2.0 (code name NT910S3L) will bring an Intel Pentium 4405U Skylake dual-core processor at 2.1 GHz with Intel HD 510 graphics inside, instead of the current AMD APU. The new notebook will also have twice as much RAM – 8 GB instead of the current 4 GB. The display has also been updated from 1366 x 768 pixels to Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), although this might be a problem for some people on the relatively small 13.3-inch display. The rest of the changes include a 128 GB SSD, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a 30 watt-hour battery and a SDXC memory card slot. In addition to this the updated Ativ Book 9 Lite has USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, an RJ-45 connector and a HDMI port. Perhaps the best part is that the hardware changes have not taxed the device dimensions – the Ativ Book 9 Lite 2.0 is 1.78 cm thick and weighs around 1.4 kilograms.

The new Ativ Book 9 Lite is now on the South Korean market and will likely reach North America, Europe, Japan, Australia and other countries very soon. No word on pricing as of now.
