Bottom Line

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 NP930X2K-K04US is a great ultraportable for mobile users, though you may want to pack your charger as well, just in case.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 NP930X2K-K04US is a 2015 12.2-inch ultraportable praised for its slim design and light weight. It comes in a stylish Imperial Black aluminum frame that is smooth to the touch. It is powered by an Intel Core M processor, which sips a measly 4.5W of power while still performing all your daily tasks. The 8GB RAM offers ample multitasking headroom and the 256 GB SSD is fast and offers short load times. The crisp text and beautiful images produced by the WQXGA (2560 x 1600) display will leave you in awe, and rated at a maximum 700nit; the display offers excellent outdoor visibility even in the sun. However, despite the miserly Core M processor, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 NP930X2K-K04US still only manages 6.5 hours of regular use, and the price is a bit high considering the performance it offers.

    This very usable 12-inch laptop is a good, if expensive, tool for websurfing and casual use, but would benefit from better battery life.
