Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite lands for Php29,995

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.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite specs:
13.3 inch display @ 1366×768 pixels
Quad-core 1.0GHz processor (up to 1.4GHz)
AMD Radeon HD 8250 Graphics
128GB SSD storage
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
Gigabit LAN
720p webcam
3-in-1 card reader
2-cell 30Wh battery
Windows 8 64bit

There are actually two variants of the Book 9 Lite. One is the NP905S3G which is the basic one and retails for Php29,995 while the other variant is the Samsung NP915S3G which has a capaitive touchscreen display and priced a little higher at Php33,990. Both units are listed on Asianic’s website.

      Very nice my ass. Mas capable pa nga yung dual-core ko na Android tab kaysa dito sa basurang quad-core ng AMD. Yung android tab ko kayang maglaro ng HD games at smooth framerates, eh eto…baka nga kahit SD games hindi kayanin kasi naka-Windows yung OS, lol.

      Hahaha, kawawa naman yung mga PC users dyan kasi kahit anong bangis ng specs ng PC nyo, hindi pa rin kayo makapag-run ng HD games hahahaha, sucking losers users ROFLMAO!

      Admins/mods, akala ko ba namomoderate na yung mga comments? Nakakawalang gana lang bumaba sa comments section kung panay abuzalzal lang ang laman. Nakakasawa din, parepareho sinasabi.

  2. Jay says:

    interesting. is there a 256 GB version?

  3. meh says:

    Terrible screen res, processor im sure does not compare to haswell and only 4g of ram. THis is just simply not good enough

    • There is a Haswell version of this, the ATIV Book 9 Plus. Comes with Intel Core i5/i7 Haswell, 256GB SSD, QHD 3200×1800 pixels and touchscreen.

    • Rocky says:

      try to be a bit more realistic Mr.Meh, there is no FHD notebook for 30k. Plus at the thinness of that notebook I’m sure its not expandable in memory size.

      Maybe your BUDGET is higher so you’re expecting more specs.

  4. Rocky says:

    The processor is AMD A6 and even underclocked, probably the reason why just says “Quad-Core Processor” even on their unpacked event.

    Anyways its good that its using SSD but Core i3 haswell will kick the butt of this notebook for sure in terms of overall performance.

    Sorry AMD you’re too late again and again

    Price and specs are not bad for some internet surfing & office work.

  6. abuzalzal says:

    Meh, my dual-core android tab beats this piece of sh!t quad-core laptop anytime of the day because my tab can play hd games at smooth framerate while this POS barely runs SD games at smooth framerates.

    Hahahaha fvcking pc users losers!

    Android is the only os you’ll need if your a real professional!

    Oh ano sino gustong magpabili sa akin ng gadgets, madami akong pera na kinita sa car aircon repair business ko, lolz.

    • Kaloka says:

      ndi nmin kelangan yang cheapangga mong android.. hampaslupa! XD

    • Rocky says:

      You can’t really do MS Office on an android tablet, not to mention adobe applications

    • migs says:

      @abuzalzal Your stupidity knows no bounds. So you’re saying that all hardware running Windows is insufficient for gaming? And what is? Your ARM powered dual-core excuse for a tablet? Microsoft Office 2013 on Android? Still not available. Professional software? AutoCad 2013 and full blown Photoshop isn’t even on the Play Store, probably due to the fact that ARM processors are too weak to handle those. The only tablet that I know of that can handle those tasks is the Razer Edge Pro. But then again, maybe your repair business doesn’t really demand that high of a standard?

    • secret says:

      anu bang brand ng tablet ang pinagmamalaki mong peste ka? cherry mobile? kainin m tablet m peste! maka comment ka lang e tuwang tuwa ka na sa tablet m?

    • Mark says:

      This guy knows nothing about computers. LOL. Baka di nya alam na nung nilagay ang PC Hardware sa isang Android device, nabura lahat ng records na ginawa ng Samsung? Hindi nakakpaglaro ng HD Games? LOL. Baka on-board graphics lang sinasabi mo? Intel nga may HD Graphic card na. may tinatawag ding nVidia na pang HD at high speed gaming. kawawang nilalang naman to. nakahawak lang ng android, nagmagaling na. Sa spec sheets nakatingin ampness. Eh sa architecture at structure ng hardaware? ay, di yata nya alam.

    • bajigjig says:


      funny how some idiot talks about professionalism when he can’t even put out proper punctuations. Kung ako sayo, isave mo nalang yang 20 pesos na pangbayad mo sa comp shop at magaral ka nalang ng tamang English.

    • ativbook 9 says:

    problema dito sobrang liit na battery lang kinabit. para saan pa ung ultra voltage kung sobrang liit na battery lang ikakabit mo, eh di same battery life lang to sa normal full size laptop kaya nga lang mabigat yun, pero ewan ko ba sa mga tablet umaabot ng 6800mah dito malamang asa 2000mah lang.

    • PinkyHeart says:

      Di naman siguro 2000mah lang ang battery nito, our old Asus Atom Netbook has a 5000mah battery and it’s still thin.

    Is this computer worth it? I was wondering about the macbook pro, idea pad or Ativ 9… But I’m still unsure! I know they are for different uses, but I want it for university.

    Anyway, I was wondering if the Ativ 9 is already in stores? cos I usually check here, but they have nothing yet
    :s Thanks guys!

  10. When will the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus hit PH stores? What is its final PHP price? So excited to buy one, either Intel Core i5/i7 Haswell processor + higher SSD capacity.

    Never underestimate the power of AMD processor. AMD APU consumes less energy than Intel given that the majority of the time the processors are in low-active state + AMD has more muscle in GPU compared to Intel. I love them both (AMD & Intel). I love Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite (White), looks better than black.
