The AB9+ uses the new Haswell CPUs, giving it better battery life. But I do want to say that the 3200x1800 panel isn't as awesome as it sounds. It doesn't use a traditional RGB layout where each pixel is made up of three subpixels. Instead it only has 2 subpixels per pixel, and the colors, especially yellow, aren't too great as a result.

Considering their similar pricing, I'd be way more interested in the Asus Zenbook UX301LA. It has a 2560x1440 display from Sharp that I'm assuming is RGB. The glass covered body is sexy and functional, you get RAID 0 SSDs, WiFi ac, and the faster i7-4558U CPU. It's just an all around better machine IMO.

The things i liked about the ativ book 9 plus was SideSync with my galaxy note phone and the 3200x1900. but its a bit beyond my $1000 budget. I saw a AB9 for $1000 thats why i asked What the difference is.

Other than the AB9 i was looking at the surface pro as i wanted the Wacom Screen.
