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. We'd advise you...

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

Consumer review by: Locket (newegg.com)

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
