  • Good performance
  • Bright and vibrant 4K display
  • Great quad-speaker setup
  • Sleek, professional design
  • Rigid aluminum frame
  • Touchpad that rivals even the MacBook Pro’s


  • Poor battery life
  • Expensive
  • Discrete graphics could be better

Bottom Line

The ATIV Book 9 Pro NP940Z5L-X01US is a great all-purpose laptop with excellent performance and design but with less than average battery life.

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro NP940Z5L-X01US is a 15.6-inch laptop which impresses with its all-aluminum unibody that makes it rigid and gives it a premium feel. The sleek, professional design impresses and its excellent performance will impress when throwing tasks at it. It has a good keyboard, a responsive touchpad and the clear and vibrant 4K display is to die for. It, however, is somewhat expensive, and Samsung unfortunately fit a battery that can’t match the power draw of the premium parts. The older discrete GPU does not really cut it as well and will struggle to keep up with competing laptops fitted with the better GTX 960M.

    Samsung’s Notebook 9 Pro is comforting. Its formal, elegant design, pleasing keyboard, and strong processor make for a system that’s immediately likable, and one that crosses genres.

    Samsung's 15-inch ATIV Book 9 Pro features an attractive aluminum body and a bright UHD screen, but weak battery life and underpowered graphics prevent it from being a top pick.
