Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite has AMD under the hood

  • Samsung’s new ATIV Book 9 Lite is a thin and light notebook powered by an AMD A6 (Kabini) APU - pairing a 2 GHz quad-core processor with Radeon HD 8400 graphics.

    Additional key specs include a 13.3 inch touchscreen display, 4GB of RAM,and a 128GB solid state disk (SSD).

    "While the chip uses more power than a typical Intel Haswell laptop processor, AMD is positioning this chip as a competitor to Intel’s latest Core i3 or Pentium processors, so basically you get mid-range performance and lower battery life than you’d get with a Haswell chip," Liliputing's Brad Linder explained.

    "The good news is that the ATIV Book 9 Lite should be cheaper than a typical ultrabook with an Intel Core processor - [and] it’ll probably sell for less than half the price."

    Which isn't bad at all, especially considering the slick device boasts a 1366 x 768 pixel display, measures 0.66 inches thick and weighs just 3.2 pounds.
