RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the addition of two premium laptops to the award winning ATIV Book 9 line: the ATIV Book 9 Pro and ATIV Book 9 Spin. The Pro is the ultimate performance powerhouse, a smart investment for anyone looking to balance the power of a desktop with the practicality of a touch enabled notebook. The Spin has a 360⁰ rotating touch display, making it the smart choice for those who demand versatility.
“Our new laptops show Samsung’s continued dedication to providing the best options for consumers so they can stay fully connected and productive from anywhere,” said Gary Riding, senior vice president, Mobile Computing at Samsung Electronics America. “The Pro and Spin both feature gorgeous touch screens, lighter designs, and seamless connectivity within the Samsung ecosystem and represent our continued effort to innovate in the PC market.”
Stunning Touch Displays
Samsung utilizes real time HDR enhancements to optimize brightness and contrast for all content on both devices, enabling users to see clearer, crisper images and text. The Pro’s 4k display and Spin’s QHD+ display allow for a comfortable and vivid viewing experience. Both new PCs also support Samsung’s Outdoor Mode, delivering up to 700nit of superior brightness on Spin (500nit on Pro), allowing users to see clearly in even the most direct sunlight.
Built for maximum portability and productivity
Both the ATIV Book 9 Pro and ATIV Book 9 Spin designs are lightweight with durable aluminum shells, making them easy to slip into a bag, briefcase or backpack to carry between meetings and classes.
Featuring a 360° hinge, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Spin supports three unique modes of use: traditional laptop, tented screen and tablet. Each mode features a touch screen and technology that allows the display and keyboard to quickly adjust based on the mode, instantly increasing the user’s productivity.
Additionally, Samsung has further improved the ergonomic keyboard on both laptops by offering multiple, integrated one-touch activations for security features and easy mode switching. This allows users to shave time off tasks with easy shortcuts. The keyboard curves to fit and cradle the user’s fingers, resulting in a more comfortable and efficient typing experience.
Incredible performance and multimedia experience
These premium PCs both utilize Intel® ultra-fast 6th Generation Core™ i7 processors, precisely designed for super-slim, ultra-portable and high performance devices with speeds up to 2.50 GHz (ATIV Book 9 Spin) and 2.60 GHz (ATIV Book 9 Pro). With solid state drive storage of 256GB, the devices provide ample space for all of a user’s computing and multimedia needs.
Both devices feature easily accessible ports for HDMI, headphones, microphones, memory cards and USBs. For additional convenience, the ATIV Book 9 Pro features a USB Type C Connector, tailored for a variety of ports and connection to multiple devices.
Ideal for entertaining and multimedia, the ATIV Book 9 Pro utilizes Wi-Fi Booster v2, so that streaming can happen even when the environment does not offer a strong wireless connection. The PC also features NVIDIA graphics and a 4k display, bringing all content to life. Dynamic quad-speakers boost the audio, delivering perfect harmony.

The ATIV Book 9 Pro will be available for an MSRP of $1,599 beginning in November 2015. The ATIV Book 9 Spin will be available for an MSRP of $1,399, also beginning in November 2015. These 2 models will be available exclusively on Samsung.com and Best Buy.
