Launched in London back in June, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite has finally reached local stores with a starting price of Php29,995. The ATIV Book 9 Lite features an SSD storage with an S Quad Core 1.4GHz processor.
We got a quick look at the ultrabook last June and was curious about the S Quad core processor that turned out to be an AMD A6-1450 1.0GHz quad-core processor (Turbo Frequency 1.4GHz) after tweaking around the Device Manager in Windows.
The ATIV Book 9 Lite is probably the first locally-available laptop using SSD to be priced at under Php30k.
