Samsung announces the ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition, a 15.6-inch Windows 8 laptop with 14 hours of battery life

CES doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, but that doesn’t companies from announcing all their products. Samsung didn’t announce anything new for Windows Phone, but there are a handful of new Windows devices from the Korean tech giant. Here are the specs and details for the Samsung ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition and the ATIV One7 2014 Edition.

Up first is the 2014 edition of the Samsung ATIV Book 9. This laptop features a 1920 x 1080 resolution on a 15.6-inch display. You’ll have your choice of either Intel Core i5 or i7 processors when configuring this machine. You can also throw in a 1028GB SSD, of course smaller storage options will be there. Port wise we’ve got 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0, HDMI, mini VGA, and more.

The craziest part of this machine? The listed battery life at 14-hours for the ATIV 9 Book 2014 Edition. If that battery life is even three quarters of what’s listed… that’ll be impressive. It’s also not too beastly in terms of size. The laptop weighs in at 1.85 kg (about 4lbs). We can’t wait to check this machine out in person.

For the fans of all-in-one’s there’s the Samsung ATIV One7 2014 Edition. This all-in-one PC offers a 24-inch display running a resolution of 1920 x 1080. You have your choice of either an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor. You’re also looking at 8GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and the usual plethora of ports.

We’ll be on the CES show floor this week to check out all the offerings from Samsung. The ATIV 9 2014 Edition looks really interesting with its all-day battery life. What do you guys think?
