Compact notebook machines with effective design and pocket friendly price are among the most popular ones on the computer market. Their price is kept low mainly at the expense of a more powerful hardware set.

However if you need a machine mostly for browse, watching movies and playing music you are good to go with an entry-level machine. Today we are going to take a closer look at one of the good offers on the market this is Samsung Ativ Book 2.
The black and silver color mix of the housing looks very sleek and beautiful despite the fact that it’s an entirely plastic chassis. But of course who would expect more from a budget entry-level machine. The glossy finished surface attracts lots of fingerprints and dust but at least doesn’t look cheap and weakly build.
15-inches are the perfect display diagonal for an all-around home machine like this one here. More specifically it’s a 15.6 – inch LED display panel with 1366×768 pixel resolution.

The inches and resolution ratio create 100ppi density which is pretty satisfying for a mid-range performer like this one here. The anti-reflective surface on the screen is very much welcomed especially with entertainment machines.
The overall performance on the Ativ Book 2 is handled by the dual-core Intel Celeron 847 using 2MB cache at the work frequency of 1.10GHz. The system memory that ensures the processes on board is 4GB DDR3. The integrated Intel HD graphics on board is in charge of the video streaming here.
The keyboard is a full-sized standard one – with island-style keys. Their wide surface and soft plastic material used contribute to the comfortable and easy typing. The touchpad is placed to the left of the center. It is very sensitive and has a standard shape with the two auxiliary keys on the bottom.

Just above the display there is a Webcam that works at 720p. During video calls it performs decently but you’d better ensure there is enough light around you so that the picture is clearer. The Sound Alive stereo speakers are ok to deliver good sound as long as you don’t boost the volume level to the maximum.
Now it’s time to say a few words about the ports and slots available on the Samsung Ativ Book 2. For video sharing there is a VGA and an HDMI ports, of course USB ports, a microSD card slot 3-in-1 and finally something we don’t already see on every device – a Super Multi Dual Layer optical drive.
