Here's more info on the newest configuration:
Powerful Performance The new Book 9 Plus configuration adds the power of Windows 8.1 and an Intel Core i7 processor to the already lightning-fast laptop. The Book 9 Plus wakes up in less than one second and boots from cold in less than six seconds, giving consumers instant access to everything they need. Up to 7.5 hours of battery life (MM12) ensure that users can enjoy the Book 9 Plus on cross-country flights or during a busy business day without needing to find a power source.
Premium Screen Quality The ATIV Book 9 Plus features an incredibly precise 13.3-inch QHD+ (3200 x 1800) scratch-resistant touch-screen display. The screen is 2.8X sharper than full HD and with 350nit SuperBright technology; users will never miss a detail. The panel also tilts back up to 180-degrees and has viewing angles up to 170*, so users can change or share their perspective with just a touch. Additionally, the display locks at approximately 110-degrees to ensure a comfortable touch experience without wobbling.
Striking Design The ATIV Book 9 Plus delivers on the iconic design legacy of the award-winning Book 9 with a full aluminum body, slim profile and sleek lines. The Book 9 Plus weighs just over 3 pounds and measures just over a half-inch, despite its powerful internal components. The premium and refined aerodynamic frame is sand-blasted to achieve an elegant matte finish, which is accentuated by a sophisticated Mineral Ash Black color.
Ultimate Mobile Convenience Samsung SideSync is available on the ATIV Book 9 Plus, enabling users to seamlessly switch from working on their PC to their GALAXY smartphone by simply linking the two devices via a USB cable or even over WiFi. When connected through USB or wirelessly, users can effortlessly work across devices, including responding to a text on a mobile phone from the PC keyboard; viewing maps, photos and multimedia from their phone on their PC screen; making edits to files on their phone via their ATIV PC; and even dragging and dropping files from one unit to another. The result is a more unified experience, fewer interruptions to work and everyday life, and the ability to utilize the best features of both devices.
Availability: The laptop is now available for pre-sale exclusively from Samsung.com for an MSRP of $1799.99 and will hit shelves in early November. The previous ATIV Book 9 Plus model, which features Windows 8 and an Intel Core i5 processor, will remain available for $1,399.99, offering consumers a choice of features and price points.
