Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D Windows 8 ultrabook review

 

Samsung has been offering a line of ultrabooks since before they were called ultrabooks. The Samsung Series 9 line of laptops including thin and light cases, solid state disks, and Intel Core family processors.

The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D-A01US has a list price of $999, but you can pick one up

Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D review

 

The Windows Ultrabook to beat?

128GB SSD ; Good performance ; Impressive design ; Thin and light ; Good image quality

Older Core i5 CPU ; Screen resolution could be better ; More powerful and cheaper rivals

Despite some issues, we believe the NP900X4D is a good buy, if not a truly excellent one. You won't walk out of the shop feeling like you've been ripped off, but you certainly won't feel like you've got the steal of the century, either.

The price has been cut, but so has the quality - this laptop is a little underpowered and battery life isn't as good as we'd expect

Samsung NP-900X3D review

 

The original Series 9 that launched back in 2011 was expensive, but it was one of the first Ultrabooks created for Intel and its strikingly slim and stylish design really stood out from the crowd; all Ultrabooks owe their existence and their style to...

A weight of just 1.2 kg for a 13.3-inch laptop is still hard to beat, and the Series 9 may appeal to someone who needs an ultra-portable laptop for everyday use. You may find it discounted now by £200 or more but it’s still not especially competitive....

Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D

 

Laptops don't get much thinner and lighter than this.

Very slim, very light ; Attractive design ; Versatile matt screen

CPU not hugely powerful ; Low screen resolution

Fitting a discrete graphics chip into a shell this small without the whole laptop melting under use would be tricky, but be aware that the integrated Intel HD 4000 can only handle older games or less demanding newer ones at lower settings. However,...

Slim sleek sexy. Pure in simple

Mousepad sticks when right clicking. Charging port lacks the design seen in the overall laptop. It is extremely delicate and absolutely horrible. That aside you are looking at a high end product

Sleek, fast, but frustrating at times

 

I love this thing, but it's given me some frustrations since I've purchased it 4 months ago. Initially, most of the problems came from Win 8, an OS with a pretty big learning curve even for someone like me who considers herself computer-literate. I...

Small size ; Screen is very bright in on low settings ; Really long battery life (plus, an option to charge to 80%) ; Nice backlit keyboard ; Touchpad gestures

Speakers situated on back ; Problems with google chrome *fixed (IMPORTANT - delete Samsung Support Center to fix google chrome loading errors) ; High resolution (Easily adjusted) ; Loaded with junk apps

Awesome laptop despite windows 8

 

This is my 4th Sammy laptop and probably the best, though the np700 for the money was no slouch.This thing fly's, very little heat and noise for such a compact package. Screen is awesome and sound is beautiful.I will upgrade the ram to 16gb for VM's...

Exactly what I wanted

 

The computer is tiny, but the screen is big and the picture clarity is fantastic. It is lightning fast. I am not having any issues with the trackpad. It would be nice to have an extra USB port, but the number it has seems fairly standard with the truly...
