    Bigger screen -> smaller battery life. Where're you, mitchellvii?

    Samsung undercuts Retina MacBook Pro with $1,399.99 Ativ Book 9 Plus | The Verge

    Back when the company first showed off the (horribly named) laptop in June it promised an excellent 12 hours of battery life, which would make the Ativ Book 9 Plus a mighty competitor to the much lower-resolution MacBook Air. In today's press release, however, Samsung has dropped that estimate to a far-less-impressive 7.5 hours, and on its website it's quoting 11 hours of battery life. It's not clear what's changed, and we've reached out to Samsung for more details.

    Don't worry, he'll be back to defend it.

    Um, ATIV Book 9? I am going to buy the ATIV Q, completely different animal. Have nothing in particular to say about the ATIV 9.

    Yes the ATIV-Q is still not on the market as far as I know.

    Right, waiting waiting.

    Was feeling tempted by the Sony Duo but don't like the hinge on that one. Would like to see the new Dell XPS 11 too before doing anything but who knows when that will come out? Plus my GF thinks its cute I have a Papa Surface and she has a Baby Surface, lol, yeah I know, right. Lame.

    Ok, it's not the same computer. But the ATIV Q will have the same screen and weight...

    I still think you should lay hands on an Ativ-Q before taking the plunge. These devices can be seriously disappointing and we all know what a slick video editing department can do to an otherwise craptastic device.

    On another note, the Touch Screen Monitor I got for my now returned Pro works wonderfully in Windows 7. Whodathunkit?

    According to Samsung's Facebook page the Q has been delayed indefinitely...
