I am a college student looking to buy an ultrabook. I will be using this ultrabook for taking notes in class, writing papers, web browsing and light gaming. I am looking at the Dell XPS 9333 and the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, but I am unsure of which one I should buy. What are your thoughts? Do you have any pros or cons to buying either ultrabook? Do you recommend a different ultrabook? Thank you for your time!

What will I use it for?
Light gaming(Minecraft, low graphics Starcraft II)
What is my Price?
Battery Life needed?
5 Plus hours of runtime

I have a DELL XPS 9333 and it has a problem to the left USB port(it is a well known problem between xps users). Trying to solve the problem, i wasted a lot of time with support, jumping from the technical support to the customer service and viceversa. They replaced USB port, motherboard, display(which they have damaged during a maintainance work) and still the problem isn't fixed. Now i have a hand-assembled xps! So, if you are lucky and you won't have any problem, dell xps would be a good machine, but if you have some issue then.... good luck with the support :)
