Falling apart in less than a year
Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 9 Mineral Ash Black Laptop Computer:
Pros: Very Fast Great comfortable full keyboard Thin sleek design Beautiful display Cons: Less than 1 year of use and the lid near the hinge is falling apart...poor design. Cannot expand memory Trackpad is buggy...right clicks are sometimes registered as left clicks and gestures work inconsistently. Battery life (not user replaceable) substantially depleted after 1 year. In short, it's a very nice laptop but has a lifespan of about a year. Considering the steep price of these laptops, I would expect a better quality product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Lake County, CA
This is the best laptop I've ever owned. It is quick to start up, update, and download software. The picture is amazingly clear for anything you could possibly want to watch or play. The keyboard features make everything easy to adjust without the need to search everywhere. Another outstanding product by Samsung.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
very nice design, short on software
from north Texas
i have the i7 15.6" touch book 9. it's amazing in many ways. the boot time is incredible and performance is solid. although i'm a power user on my other machines, i use this one for business, so the graphics and general processing power are not pushed in my case. but if boot time of the OS and application processing speed is any reflection, this laptop is super fast, and the battery lasts me all day with continual screen on time and 90% brightness. the screen in super bright, very accurate, and evidently efficient. qhd would be nice, but at the expense of battery life. all that's the hardware side. on the software side I'd say it's too weak and not supported enough in terms of driver development and general Samsung application quality. but two things: 1) windows 10 should offer a driver that should work with gesture based window toggling for workflow, which was totally overlooked by Samsung here, and 2) Samsung NA has said their laptop business is at its end, so...

I just bought this laptop for college in August and it has been amazing. I've had no problems with it at all and it's incredibly fast. Only complaint is that the speakers could be louder, but that's really just searching for a problem. Awesome, awesome laptop.

Beautiful powerhouse, the only 15inch Ultrabook
I love this Ultrabook, great value, slim and sexy, and everything I was looking for. No one else makes a comparable product, this machine is top-class.
BEWARE - This Product is Heavier than Spec.
Seems to be a quality product. The main issue I have is that the weight of my laptop is much heavier than stated on the Samsung website. Mine weighs 4.38lb not 3.92lb as in the spec. This is a massive 0.46lb heavier than claimed and not what I expected from Samsung. I wish I could exchange it for one that ACTUALLY weighs 3.92lb.
Amazing features but...

I have to wash my hands to prevent oil spots on the exterior since the material is very easily glossy. And it's carefully open the labtop, since LCD panel and the body (under keyboards) are really thin.
Excellent laptop, worth the expense
from Myrtle Beach, SC, USA
After researching several manufacturers and numerous models, I selected this machine though it cost more than I wanted to spend. I wanted a battery that lasted most of a day, an SDD drive, backlit keyboard, newer wifi, and liked the speed and memory that was included. I was willing to purchase a 13" model, but the cost difference didn't justify reducing the screen size for me. Samsung has earned my trust with their cell phones and tablets (I have had numerous models over the years, and I am glad to see their computers are also superior. So far, the machine has delivered all that I expected and more. Should any problems develop I will update this rating, but don't foresee that at this time.
