Lovely & Light


As light and sleek as any Airbook, this will be my main traveling machine (once I get a decent cord.) Really nice design, and quite attractive. I wish it came in i5 or 7, but it's fast enough considering its size.

Sleek, lightweight design, fast enough to do the job, good wireless connectivity

The adapter is chintzy and dangerous. I like the configuration of the "wall wart" itself but was worried when I saw the headphone-weight cord. It's smaller (around) than a USB, and sure enough, in less than two months the covering of the cord (going to...

Stylish, ultra-portable laptop


I've had my series 9 for a year now, and I love it. It's super-light and very portable... after years of lugging around big, heavy laptops, the series 9 is a treat. Processor is fast, and the SSD is a big plus when you're constantly moving around....

This computer is a honey. However, for the price it should have had the i5 or i7 processor for improved speed and multitasking capabilities.

Samsung 900X1A-A01 11.6" Notebook, Intel Core i3-380UM (1.33GHz), 2GB DDR3 Memory, 64GB SSD, Intel GMA HD, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit


The ultrabook seems cute and runs well except a problem with the touchpad, which was fixed by updating the driver. The big issue is though a 3-year international warranty was included in the description, the seller didn't supply it actually. So don't...
