Exclusive: Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite goes on preoder for £599, lands on 12/8

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite was announced last month and it has already been put on preorder at online retailer Very for £599 with the expected delivery date set on 12 August. As expected, it borrows a number of features from its more powerful brother, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus. This includes 4GB of RAM, a 13.3in display, 128GB onboard storage and a similar chassis/form factor.

The display of the Book 9 lite however has been downgraded to a standard 1,366 x 768 pixel LED model (although it retains the touch capabilities) and the Intel Haswell processor has been swapped for a much slower quad-core AMD processor clocked at 1.4GHz with an integrated AMD Radeon HD graphics onboard.

Other features include a 2-second fast start from sleep mode, a fast browsing feature, USB 3.0 connectivity, up to nine hours battery life, a HD webcam, Sidesync (which allows features of a recent Galaxy smartphone to be replicated on the Book 9 Lite), a 17mm thickness and a weight of 1.6Kg.
