CES 2014 - Samsung has made some modifications to its new Ativ Book 9 ultrabook, where it has dropped the high-resolution display, and instead pushed more battery life into the machine. Something that Samsung estimates will give consumers around 14 hours of battery life.

The previous model featured a 3200x1800-pixel 15.6-inch display, but the new model turns the heat down on the resolution to 1920x1080. This is something that should provide more battery life, but I don't see why we couldn't see two models on offer - one with the high-res display, one with the Full HD panel.

We have a choice between Intel's Core i5 and i7 processors, either a 128GB or 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM minimum.
