So what exactly will a PHP 30,000 notebook get you? For one, it is powered by a breakthrough processor called ‘S Quad Core’ and will have 128GB SSD storage. Not bad. Not bad at all. For something that hails the ‘9’ series of Samsung devices and costs a fraction of the price, definitely not bad at all.

We got hold of this information from an earlier briefing during the SideSync unveil and if you look at the foreign press releases, the material only references the processor to be a ‘Quad Core processor’ but upon further inspection it seems like a partnership with AMD. Will Samsung be able to break away and manufacture their own processors in the future?

Specs include:

(1) custom quad-core AMD processor that runs up to 1.4Ghz
(2) 4GB RAM and has a
(3) 128GB SSD storage
(4) 13″ 1366×768 ten-point touch screen
(5) runs on Windows 8
(6) 0.69″ thin and weighs 3.48lbs

I’d hold the benchmark to be similar to the Atom line of Intel providing great battery life and functionality, where the inspiration was definitely derived from their Galaxy smartphone line. Samsung will be launching the Book 9 Lite before the end of the month of July in the Philippines. Like the rest of the ATIV line, it will support SideSync.
