Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5G-K01US reviewThe Samsung ATIV is another flagship series for the company in the market of laptops. Today we will be taking a good look at the Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5G-K01US which is a new entry in the same line up. Every feature in this laptop is well designed to give a really good user experience and whether they find it useful; we’ll see that shortly.

The design of the Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5G-K01US is clean and there is nothing very special to boast about. But people will feel that this simple design will leave an everlasting impression about the same. The finish is premium and doesn’t sound or look like a cheap product (why don’t they do this to their smart phones?). The laptop weighs just around 4.8 pounds and hence is very portable helping people who commute a lot daily.

The processor that rules the insides is an Intel Pentium one and it clocks about 1.8GHz. The performance of the processor is good meaning the operating system runs smoothly and the applications are fast during opening, use and during closing. But some high end applications like video editors may suffer from a little lag.

The 4GB DDR3 RAM equips the memory area. The memory is more than enough for doing some purposeful multi tasking. More than one day to day activities can be run at a time and there will still be very little lag (usually lag free for such applications). The operating system supports multi tasking in a big way and if you how to use this machine you will boost your productivity to the next level.

The 500GB hard drive could help you with the media and other data in your hands. It does come with Windows 8 and some other pre-installations that will take up some space. Talking about the operating system, you get Windows 8 but there is a free upgrade to Windows 8.1 through the Windows shop. So make sure you register and avail it.

There isn’t much to talk about gaming. The Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5G-K01US comes with a default Intel HD graphics card and does support most of the games that are hot with gamers right now. But if you are a hardcore gamer you are better off looking for a complete gaming beast rather than one that can also support games.

There are only 3 USB 2.0 ports and not even one USB 3.0 port. We think it as a disadvantage because the latter can transfer data at about ten times faster than the former. There s also a super multi DVD drive that can take care of your DVDs (if any).

The best part about the Samsung ATIV Book 2 NP270E5G-K01US is that it is tailor made for the day to day activities and some light gaming. If you are a casual user you should be very interested in this one.
