Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C Review


The Samsung Series 9 is one of the most well-rounded Ultrabooks we've seen with excellent performance, decent speakers and a great display.

Fantastic high-res display ; Excellent performance ; Good backlit keyboard ; 7.5 hours of battery life

Limited amount of ports ; Loud touchpad clicks ; Pricey

The Samsung Series 9 is the most well-rounded Ultrabook we’ve reviewed to date. It gets almost everything right – it even has decent speakers. The 1600×900 PLS display has fantastic picture quality with unlimited viewing angles and an anti-glare...

Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C-A01 (13-inch, 2012)


The first version of the Samsung Series 9 debuted before the word "Ultrabook" had even been coined by Intel. It was a proto-ultrabook, a thin-and-light 13-inch laptop that looked like a Windows variation of the MacBook Air , clad in black duralumin....

The new 13-inch Samsung Series 9 is incredibly light and thin, with excellent battery life, and a bright matte 1,600x900-pixel screen.

It lacks bells and whistles (discrete graphics, more storage, faster processor) seen in higher-end Windows ultrabooks, and the base model costs $100 more than a MacBook Air.

If you're looking for a beautifully built, extremely thin, light, and portable ultrabook, the Samsung Series 9 rises above the competition. It may lack a few top-end features, but it's a perfect ultraportable for those who can afford it.

New Series 9 (NP900X3C-A01AU) Ivy Bridge laptop

Samsung Series 9 Notebook (NP900X3C)


The past few months has seen the rise of the tablet PC, which has some pundits intimating that it might be at the expense of the laptop/netbook/notebook genre of PC. Then Samsung comes along and releases its latest Series 9 notebook, gviing you second...

Super portable, excellent speed, reasonable battery life

Speakers are a let down, slightly expensive

Overall, this is a nice number for many reasons – the look, the size, the weight and the oomph it gives when under pressure. We liked – a lot. My only other bugbear is the price. At just under $1600, it does seem a tad expensive, but we’re not too sure...

Samsung Series 9 900X3C


Samsung's has managed to cram a lot of computer into the world's thinnest notebook: their Series 9 (900X3C).

Chiselled good looks; Incredibly functional form; World's lightest notebook

More expensive than Ultrabooks

"Another technological failure for an expensive cost."


I this computer wasn't my present, I would have never even looked towards it. I don't actually see the point of such computer at all.

The speakers produce some pretty decent sound.

-Gets REALLY hot

"Touchpad is TERRIBLE!!"


I would NOT recommend this product to a friend. If you don't mind carying an external mouse and turning off the touchpad, then I would recommend this computer.

This computer is extremely durable! It has survived multiple drops. Battery life is excellent. Computer is extremely light and keyboard touch is excellent. Screen is crisp and clear and computer is very fast.

The touchpad is so extremely sensitive that you cannot type on it without turning it off. There is no way to have the touchpad deactivated when typing so you are relegated to using an external mouse. I have multiple coworkers with the same problem.
