When Samsung revealed the ATIV Book 9 Plus specs it was clear that it was more comparable to the MacBook Pro, while having a clear design resemblance to the MacBook Air. However, at the time of the unveil we had no idea at which price bracket the new Ultrabook would be placed in, that is until now.
We now have the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus price and will start at $1,399 for the base model, which comes with a 1.6GHz Haswell Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, Intel HD 4400 graphics, 128GB SSD and 3,200 x 1,800 touchscreen display.
However, you can bring those Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus specs up by going for a faster Haswell Core i7 processor, increased RAM or more storage, and this will likely bring it up to a price similar to that of the MacBook Pro with retina.
As for the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus release date, you will not have that long to wait because Engadget reports that Samsung will make their latest Ultrabook available from August 20.
There are fears that the price of the ATIV Book 9 Plus could hurt it because of being too close to that of the MacBook Pro with Retina, but do you think this will be a worry for Samsung?
