Review Samsung Series 9 900X4B-A01DE Notebook


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

High-end aluminum unibody; Chassis' workmanship and feel; Up-to-date connectivity; Components' easy maintenance; Pleasant input devices; Screen's matte surface and HD+; Good multimedia performance; Samsung's fast mSATA SSD; Emissions in idle; Available...

Slim scope of delivery; Keyboard light fairly weak; Weak screen measuring data; No Turbo Boost 2.0 on battery or stress test; Load noise and temperature; Poor stereo speakers

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 review (15-inch, early 2012)


One year ago, Samsung released the Series 9 laptop, and at the time, we'd never seen a more premium Windows machine. It was thin, light, visually striking, and choice components filled the svelte...

Strong, sexy design ; Solid battery life ; Cool and quiet ; Matte screen

Shallow keyboard ; Muted colors and iffy viewing angles ; Weak hinge ; Terrible speakers

The Samsung Series 9 is a status symbol, rather than a comfortable user experience

Samsung Series 9 NP900X4B-A02 (15-inch) review:


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...

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...

The best lightweight computer. The screen size is perfect and the quality of the picture is outstanding. It is quiet and is the nicest looking computer on the market. I would highly recommend this to others.
