Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite NP915S3G-K01 13.3-inch Touch Screen Notebook Review - PCSTATS
Samsung's ATIV Book 9-Lite slots in somewhere between mainstream laptop and tablet on steroids, though at first glance it looks unassailably like an Ultrabook.

Sysmark gives the Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite notebook a real run for its money and quite pointedly illustrates how much this is not an Ultrabook. The ATIV Book 9-Lite is a clearly an entry level laptop that straddles the line between tablet PC and ultra compact computer. With 4GB of fixed memory and a 1GHz quad-core (AMD A6-1450 APU) processor with zero L3 cache, the ATIV Book 9 Lite is no where near the same performance category as the Samsung 900X4C Ultrabook and its Core i7 processor. The Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite notebook gets it's computer chips handed to it in Sysmark, an overal score of 37 is quite low.... the ATIV Book 9-Lite may look like an Ultrabook, but it is clearly an entry level laptop, a notch up from a tablet PC judging by this system-level benchmark.

PCMark Vantage results are next.

The latest version of the popular PCMark series, PCMark Vantage is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance.

This allows PCMark Vantage to maintain a smaller installation size while still giving accurate results.

PCMark Vantage experienced difficulties completing its entire benchmark set on the Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite notebook. This may have been due to touch screen enabled Windows 8 components or the abundant amount of pre-installed software. The benchmark failed to complete about half the tests, but based on the available results it looks like performace was a good 50% - 30% below the Intel Core i5 based Samsung 540U3C and Intel Core i7 based Samsung 900X4C notebooks. The only test where the Samsung ATIV Book 9-Lite notebook achieved a good result was the HDD sub-test, thanks to its 128GB solid state drive.
