The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K05US is an early 2015 laptop praised for its gorgeous looks, aluminum design and solid battery life. If features an anodized, brushed finish that switches between purple and black at different viewing angles, and the all-aluminum finish gives it great premium style. It is not quite as light as other ultraportables, but it is nowhere near heavy and is easily carried around. The QHD+ screen offers a great viewing experience and is touchscreen enabled. However, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus NP940X3G-K05US’ older 4th gen processor is not quite as fast as ones on newer models.

    If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.
