The Samsung Ativ Book 6 line of laptop computers is simply impressive. These laptops are stocked with premium components that are meant to give you the most out of your laptop. With the exception of one real shortcoming, this laptop is in the running with the best laptops that we reviewed.
The Book 6 series comes with an Intel Core i7 3635QM processor that runs at speeds of 2.4GHz with turbo boosts up to 3.4GHz. This helps your computer reduce lag time when you are pushing the limits of your laptop’s capabilities.
There is plenty of RAM and storage on the Book 6 laptop. Like other top-rated laptops that we reviewed, this series of laptops comes with 8GB of RAM stock with the option to upgrade up to 16GB. You should have little to no lag when running multiple programs or multimedia software. You also get 750GB of hard drive storage, which you can upgrade to 1TB. The one thing that really disappointed us was the short battery life. On one charge you can only get around four and a half hours. Other premium laptops with similar specs get much more.
The 15-inch Ativ Book 6 comes with a built-in 720p HD webcam. The screen is a full HD display at 1900 x 1080 pixels. This laptop measures out to be 14.8 x 9.84 x 0.89 inches (W x D x H) and weighs 5.38 pounds. That’s pretty light and portable for a 15-inch model.
With the crystal clear 1080p display, coupled with an upgraded AMD Radeon HD 8770M graphics card, which is an upper mid-level graphics card, you can enjoy playing games on high- to mid-resolution setting or watch your favorite movies or streaming videos without a hitch.
There are plenty of ports and connectivity options on the Book 6 series including two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, a 3-in-1 multicard reader, headphones, VGA and HDMI ports. You will also have built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options.
The Samsung Ativ Book 6 series of laptops are strong, fast and fairly portable. The short battery life causes this series to fall out of our top three, but that by no means should steer you away from this incredible laptop computer.
