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 machine, including a comfortable backlit keyboard, a...

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

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

Is the thinnest 15-inch laptop worth $1,500?

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...

Awesome Laptop

 

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...
