Samsung Series 9 Review (NP900)

 

The Samsung Series 9 2012 (aka NP900) is presented by Samsung as a laptop line that “pushes the envelope”, and the company has certainly up the ante by introducing a new design that is 20% thinner and more robust than the […]

I hope that this review gave you a good feel for how it is to use the Samsung Series 9 (2012) in the real world. If there is something else that you want to know, leave a comment below, and I will try to address it ASAP.

Samsung Series 9 Review

 

Samsung has only been selling its laptops in North America for the last few years, and while those machines haven't been bad, they haven't been remarkable either. But with the Series 9, the company is putting forth a laptop that demands notice. From...

Apple-esque style on a PC; Sandy Bridge CPU with improved integrated graphics; good battery life

Design costs a premium; other ultraportables offer better performance

This raises the question of values. If a stylish, stand-out design is of paramount importance, the Series 9 brings it—more so than any other ultraportable PC around—while offering respectable features and performance. But better features and...

Review Samsung 900X3A Subnotebook

 

Endurance with style. As slim as a MacBook, as fast as a workstat

Very stable in relation to its low weight; Long battery life; High application performance; Fast SSD memory; Perfectly suitable outdoor display; Good contrast; Wide horizontal viewing angles; Feedback strong keys; Illuminated keyboard; Large...

No VGA, HDMI only with adapter; No docking port; Long battery recharge time

Sandy Bridge subnotebook power isn't yet available from other manufacturers. Acer Travelmate 8372 and Aspire 3820, Dell Vostro V130, Samsung QX310 all have inferior displays; Sony Vaio S13 and Apple MacBook Air aren't as expensive; Sony Vaio...

Samsung Series 9 review (13-inch, mid-2012)

 

Samsung's Series 9 laptops have a lot to prove. Since the day Samsung showed the first one off at CES last year, they've consistently been priced higher than the equivalent MacBook Air, and that...

Strong, stunning design ; Excellent matte screen ; Half an inch thick

Runs uncomfortably hot ; Stiff keyboard ; No upgrades

Samsung nearly nails the gold... but will take bronze home

Beautiful, exceptionally thin design ; Best-in-class battery life ; Fast boot-up ; Bright, matte display

Trackpad could use more fine-tuning ; Pricey compared to similar Ultrabooks

With a smart design, fast boot-up and long battery life, the Series 9 is among the best Ultrabooks you can buy right now.

Samsung Series 9 review (15-inch, mid-2012)

 

More Info Samsung Series 9 (NP900X3A) laptop review Samsung unveils redesigned Series 9 laptops with 13- and 15-inch displays,

Remarkably thin and light for its size ; Long battery life, fast performance ; Bright, matte display

Shallow keyboard, so-so trackpad ; Narrow viewing angles ; Unimpressive audio for the money

The Series 9 dazzles with its performance and striking design, but a machine this pricey deserves a comfier keyboard and even nicer display.

Review: Samsung Series 9

 

Samsung's Series 9 laptop has the looks to compete with other ultrabooks on the market, but its premium price doesn't match its sub-par performance.

An all-around capable ultrabook, with thoughtful features and a quality design. Dazzlingly bright screen. Average battery life (about 4.5 hours)

Much too expensive. Surprisingly lackluster performance, particularly at graphical tasks. SOL if you need a full SD card reader. Bummer clickpad problems

Samsung Series 9 (13 in) review: Samsung Series 9 (13 in)

 

If every action has an equal and opposite reaction, then consider the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A to be a direct response to Apple's MacBook Air . It's been a long time since we've seen two laptops so seemingly intertwined--in purpose, design,...

A thin, stylish design, long battery life, excellent screen, and a new second-generation Intel Core i5 CPU make the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A one of the best ultrathin Windows laptops we've ever seen.

The Series 9's way-too-high sticker price makes the MacBook Air look downright affordable by comparison; the flexy case design doesn't feel as good as the MacBook Air's, either.

The $1,649 Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A certainly won't be for every wallet, but this light, well-featured, and striking 13-incher is the closest the Windows world will ever come to a MacBook Air. However, its higher-than-the-Air price will be hard to...

Samsung Series 9

 

Sexy, sturdy, and pricey, the 13-inch Samsung Series 9 makes a statement and backs it up with plenty of power.

With its sleek and strong design, ultra-bright display, excellent keyboard and touchpad, and fast performance, the Samsung Series 9 is one of the most compelling premium ultraportables we've tested. However, $1,649 is a lot of money to spend on a...

Samsung Series 9 (NP900X3A) laptop review

 

Back at CES, Samsung pulled out quite a few surprises, and no, we're not referring to its Zoll-infused press conference -- although, that performance

Beautiful, thin, and light chassis ; Backlit keyboard ; Speedy Core i5 and SSD performance

Expensive ; No SD card slot or higher res display option ; Touchpad lacks palm rejection
