      As a pre-med student, I spend a lot of time doing school work on a computer in and in-between classes. My old laptop was about 5 years old and the battery life was terrible, so I figured it was time to upgrade. I actually am writing this on my new Ativ Book 9 Plus right now. The overall design of this laptop is incredible. I knew it would be thin, but I didn't realize how thin this computer actually is! The touch screen is very intuitive and has a better response than I've ever dealt with on a computer. The aluminum body makes this feel not only light, but extremely durable. When you have a backpack full of books, this feature is extremely important. I also love the quality of the screen. I wish my desktop PC monitor looked this nice. Even though the graphics card in my desktop is nicer, the HD of the screen just makes that much more difference on this laptop. The picture also seems to be very close to the glass itself and helps make the screen really pop. The mouse pad has been something to get used to (single click as opposed to the right and left click designated buttons I was used to) but the size of it is great. The fan is also very quiet. Sometimes it doesn't even need to be on, but when it does come on, it is extremely quiet. One problem everyone seems to have is the auto brightness for the screen. It did bother me a little, but since I've turned it off, the screen can get very bright if I want it to. Honestly, the higher brightness setting is brighter than I can handle, so I usually have it at 50-60%. The performance of this ultrabook is just what I would have expected. I've had 8 different tabs open on Internet Explorer, multiple PDF's open, Microsoft Word 2013, and a YouTube video open and it ran flawlessly. I also love that I can sync my phones screen as a widget type thing on the computer and just keep my phone in my pocket as I use the computer during class. The QHD+ is a cool feature, but is a little ahead of its time right now. I hope that Microsoft will adjust to this so it will be something more useful in the future. This is exactly what I needed and I know this computer is going to be a great companion though my next few years of school. If you are someone on the go a lot and need a good solid and very fast computer, this is for you. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I am always impressed by Samsung products and will continue to watch them and use them throughout the years.

      Samsung does not seem to understand that UEFI is a standard, booting other OSes in pure EFI mode doesn't seem to work well. Hopyfully this gets fixed by a firmware ipdate. Disabling the secure boot does not seem to help. Ubuntu for example is only detected with CSM(legacy BIOS compatible mode.) Somehow this system is bundled with software that should not being run outside X labeled gaming consoles. Killer screen however, so it could have potential if the design team only knew how to follow standards, like UEFI.

          Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus 940X3GI - 13.3" - Core i5 4200U - Windows 8 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 128 GB SSD:

          This laptop is the best I have used in the past 7 years. The slim design makes it easy to carry, the screen is very sharp and bright. The video connections are micro so some adapters are necessary. The touchpad needs adjustment when first used but then functions well.

            Has been a pleasure using this ultrabook. The touchscreen makes entering foreign languages a breeze, and the high resolution and easy manipulation of photos makes multimedia a pleasure. Only ran into a problem when I realized accessories might be difficult to find outside of where this product was purchased (USA). In Seoul, at a Samsung service center, I was told I had to buy the HDMI adapter on the internet--they had no such thing in stock there at the service center; same story in Taipei.

              I am a most happy camper, thank you so much! Just wondering for the future; Would there be a way to manufacture the back just a tiny bit less sexy/less smooth, so it would be easier and more secure to grip? There might just be a way for this compromise to help for those of us who are somewhat clumsy? My other thought is just nit-picking since I have no way of knowing at this point; wondering how the build of the power plug into the machine would withstand the daily grind - given it's super-sleek design?

                  I have this ultrabook for 3 weeks now. So far I have encountered no problem. However, I do have some suggestions. The screen brightness was dimmed too dark automatically in low lighted room. I have to turned off this feature to be able to see the letters. The Samsung softwares that comes with this laptop takes a lot of SSD space: I am left with 72 GB out of 128GB for my files. I know that the partition for OS recovery takes some 20ist GB but 56GB for OS and Apps are a bit much. I believe all the apps amount to 5GB. I would try to delete some softwares and apps to free some spaces. Samsung should offer 256GB or higher storage for i5. Sound from built-in speakers is acceptable. No problem with Wifi either, connection is good and I have experienced no drop. Letters in native resolution are tiny but I have no problem reading them. However, other users might find them too small.
