Today, Samsung announced the US launch date of its highly anticipated ATIV Book 9 Lite. The ATIV Book 9 Lite is built around the same strikingly beautiful design features as the ATIV Book 9 but is designed for customers on a budget. The ATIV Book 9 Lite comes in a stylish white marble finish or black ash trim for a sleek and modern look.
"With the ATIV Book 9 Lite, we created a device that fits the needs of a larger consumer base, while preserving the remarkable design and overall experience delivered by the Book 9 lineage," said Mike Abary, senior vice president of consumer IT product marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "To further streamline the computing experience and offer convenience to users, we built an integrated solution, SideSync, to bring together the mobile and PC ecosystems."
The ATIV Book 9 Lite features a touchscreen LCD that is able to receive input from up to 10 points at once as well as a quad-core processor and a 128 GB SSD. The device weighs in at just 3.5 pounds and measures in at under an inch thick. The ATIV Book 9 Lite is available for pre-order now through major online retailers at a pricing point of $799.99. In-store purchasing will begin on July 28.
