There’s a lot to like about the Samsung ATIV Book 6. The device may not offer an incredibly thin form factor, but it’s built well and the cobalt blue casing provides a nice unique aesthetic that is all too hard to find in today’s market. Best of all the Samsung ATIV Book 6 boasts incredible performance along with its sleek visuals. Equipped with a 2.4 GHz processor, 8GB of Ram and an AMD HD 8770M GPU the ATIV Book 6 offers performance deserving of the notebook’s price point, and its glossy 15.6″ display makes the Samsung ATIV Book 6 great for watching movies and television.
The inconsistent performance of the touchpad can be an annoyance, and the lack of a SSD along with a fourth-generation Intel processor is somewhat disappointing; but these shortfalls don’t deter from the well-rounded offering provided in the Samsung ATIV Book 6.
Users concerned with performance first and foremost may want to opt for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, which offers more video memory and a hybrid drive for better performance at a comparable price. However, users who want a nice aesthetic in conjunction with overall performance will be well served by the Samsung ATIV Book 6.
