Samsung New Zealand has unveiled four new Windows 8 PCs under the recently expanded ATIV brand: ATIV Book 9 Plus, ATIV Book 9 Lite, ATIV Book 9 Lite Touch and the ATIV One 5 Style.
These new PCs continue to deliver on the promise of ATIV by extending the mobile experience across mobile phone and PC environments for a seamless work and life balance.
