Premium slim case. Amidst Samsung's Series 9 refresh, there is no

That the cooling system has not been modified much. We would have appreciated a more quiet and efficient solution. Perhaps the Ivy Bridge update will supply new findings.

Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4B-A02US)

 

Samsung gets a jump on Apple's anticipated 15-inch MacBook Air with the super-slim and -sexy Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4B-A02US).

Incredibly thin and light for a 15-inch laptop. Bright, hi-res display. WiDi

Expensive. Shallow keyboard. Slippery touchpad. Only 57GB of 128GB SSD available at startup. VGA and HDMI dongles not included

Samsung Series 9 NP900X4B-A02 (15-inch)

 

Are larger-scale ultrabooks the laptop version of "Dead man walking"? Well, it's a disconnect if you like ultrabooks for what they were originally promised to have: small-scale portability. Taking the thin splendor of a brilliantly executed 13-incher...

Beautiful, sleek design and a razor-thin all-metal body make the 15-inch Samsung Series 9 the most stunning and portable larger-screen laptop we've seen; the keyboard and big, bright screen are great, too.

A lack of higher-end features, such as an optical drive, and the dongle-requiring Ethernet and HDMI ports mean that this larger Series 9 isn't all that much different under the hood from its tinier 13-inch sibling. Also, it only has 128GB of SSD...

The latest Samsung Series 9 goes extra-big, and the gamble pays off with the most portable and comfortable 15-incher you're likely to find. However, its high price and lack of higher-end features don't make it the best value.

Samsung Series 9 (2012; NP900X4B)

 

Ultrabooks are definitely not anything new. However, Samsung hopes to do better than the rest with their updated 2012 model of the Series 9 laptop, which comes in either 13.3- or 15-inch models. We reviewed the 15-inch one and were amazed by its...

Only medium res display for 2012

 

Only slightly higher res than MacBook Air 13". Expect MBA 15" will have quite a bit higher resolution. As iPhone 4 and iPad 3 have shown, high res displays really make a big difference.

Wish it performed as-designed

 

If it performed as-designed, I would recommend it.

Light, thin, portable

The keyboard backlight on my device does not function correctly, I believe the ambient light sensor is not functioning. Sometimes the backlight is on in full light and other times not. I can use it in bed at night with no ambient light and the...

Fastest Bootup I\'ve ever had

 

Great laptop with super fast boot up and restart when you lift the cover from closed postion about 2-seconds. My only complaint is that the illuminated keyboard is not as bright as the mac or Dell XPS but a great value for what you get.

High expectation, but beyond that.

 

I use primarily for documentation, web browsing, and watch movies etc. Basically, I can do everything that can be done on any other laptops, but just thinks it is 2~3times faster due to the SSD. Very light so very convenient to carry around. Samsung...

I love this laptop. Love it. It is just beautiful and elegant and not a mac. Samsung should take a cue from Apple though with DVI connectors and power connector. Also the software drivers they provide could be better. The volume and brightness controls...
