While we wait for Samsung to unveil new products to the world, Notebook Italy has managed to get hold of some information and images of the ATIV Book Q, ATIV BOOK 9 LITE and ATIV Book 9 PLUS. These Windows 8 devices looks very much like other Windows hardware already available, which isn't a bad thing. Let's jump in and take a look.
The website shows off a sliding tablet / laptop with a bracket enabling the screen to move into 4 positions. Say hello to the ATIV Book Q (see above). Some specifications were also bundled, including a Quad HD 13.3-inch (2560x 1440pixels, 600 nits and 276 PPI) display. With a weight of just 1.2Kg, we're looking at some serious components. Intel Core i5 (4200U), integrated graphics, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. Running Windows 8, owners will be able to take advantage of a HD camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 40, USB 3.0 and HDMI.
The ATIV Book Q from Samsung is a convertible and is said to be launching in the coming week and will be priced at €1,500.
Next up is the ATIV Book 9 LITE and PLUS. These two ultrabooks will offer a choice between power and mobility, with the lite and plus variants sporting respective specifications to match the customer's requirements. Starting with the ATIV Book 9 LITE, we're looking at a 13.3-inch multi-touch display, AMD A6 APU, 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. Pricing is said to be around €497.83 excluding taxes.
As for the ATIV Book 9 Plus, you're looking at the exact same setup as the LITE version, but this ultrabook will sport a dual-core i5 (4200U) - same as the ATIV Book Q, as well as the same high resolution as the ATIV Book Q. Pricing will also be the same as the Q and will hover around the €1,000 mark.
Stay tuned for more details as the events progress.
