As of 2015, some well-reviewed models of Samsung notebooks include the ATIV Book 9, Chromebook 2 and Series 5. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus was given a four-star editor's rating from Laptop Magazine, while many of the various versions of this model have also received four-star user ratings on Amazon.com.
In its review of the ATIV Book 9 Plus, Laptop Magazine specifically praised this model for its stylish, aluminum-clad design. This review also recommended this model for its powerful speakers and Quad-HD+ touch screen, which provides super sharp picture quality. The only real negative aspect of this review was in terms of the laptop's weight; at 3.06 pounds, it is slightly heavier than many of its closest competitors.
The Samsung Chromebook 2 is the company's best-rated model on Amazon.com, and CNET.com gave it a 3.5-star rating in its 2014 review. This review noted that the Samsung Chromebook 2 offered much sturdier construction than most Chromebooks. This model also offers impressive performance and more than seven hours of battery life. However, the Chromebook 2 suffers in terms of display quality, as the screen only looks good when viewed straight on. The review also noted that this model suffers from a lack of memory, as it is fixed at 2 gigabytes.
