This is a thin and light laptop? Where did you get that info? Or is that what the ATIV line is all about?

This is like, spec for spec equivalent to the Samsung Series 7 Chronos that best buy is selling, which is a pared down version of the normal SS7C. The normal one is < an inch thick with an 8870M, and Best Buy's matches this one. So it isn't insane to assume it is thin. I would bet it is. As for the ATIV line as a whole, I imagine so just due to the fact that before this, ATIV was tablets.

Yes, that's what the ATIV line is about. It is also a "6". Samsung's numbering system seems to indicate that it gets thinner and lighter as the number goes higher.

EG. The 3 is pretty much a regular notebook. The 9 is the ultrabook.

Suffice it to say I don't know much about laptop specs. Thanks much for the info guys!
