Review Samsung 900X3A Subnotebook


Endurance with style. As slim as a MacBook, as fast as a workstation and as portable as a netbook – series 9 reaches for the superlatives and is surprisingly successful in doing so. Why a "very good" is justified even without a VGA port can be read in...

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, To stay stylish, more ports don't have to be installed into the chassis. A native docking that make plugging and unplugging superfluous could make such a subnotebook perfect

Samsung Series 9 (NP-900X3C) Review


The Samsung Series 9 is one of the most amazing laptops that we have tested recently. It has everything to be called an ultrabook, yet it has been branded as a notebook by Samsung. Nevertheless, the blazing performance, the ultra slim form factor and...

Unbelievably well built, Stunning form factor, Slimness defies all common logic, Very good system performance, Excellent battery life, Crisp & bright display

Costs a hell lot of money, Heats up quite a bit

Expert Review


Incredibly thin, light, Very good performance, Sturdy feel, Bright display, Long warranty

Pricey, Mediocre battery life, No optical drive, Limited port selection

Editors' Note: This review was updated March 30th, 2011. The change reflects an error in the initial specs, which said the notebook had WiDi (Wireless Display technology). In fact it does not, so we have changed the rating from 8.8 to 8.7 and adjusted...

Samsung Series 9 900X3A


Samsung's metal-clad MacBook Air equivalent packs in a 2nd-gen Core i5 processor, USB 3.0, a backlit keyboard, an excellent screen and an amazing touchpad!

Thin & light, Duralumin construction, Amazing screen, Sandy Bridge internals, Superb glass touch pad

Not as sexy as the Macbook Air, Fingerprint magnet, Expensive

Samsung Series 9 900X3A review


Super-lightweight laptops fall into one of two types: the MacBook Air, and everything else. There are plenty of small-scale notebooks that come close to matching the Air for size or performance, but no one other than Apple has quite managed to build a...

Eizo Foris FS2333 review


This 23in IPS display breaks the gaming monitor mould with its superb IPS display and outstanding colour accuracy

The Eizo FS2333 is a great monitor. It's one of the best gaming monitors we've tested and has by far the best colour accuracy of all the 23in monitors we've tested. Its looks won't be for everyone, and it doesn't have any 3D capabilities, unlike the

Samsung NP900x3EB Ultrabook


Its not often the weight on something is the first thing I mention, this notebook is 1155grams and is also extremely thin. But it still has a 13.3inch screen and good connectivity. The only thing missing is an optical drive.

It is 31x21.5x1cm and that last figure the thickness is at the back, at the front it is only just more than half that. Because of the extreme thinness some connections such as VGA, HDMI and Ethernet are made with the help of adapter cables (all...

The second generation of Series 9 is a beautiful machine, with a good amount of power, but a few little niggles and could have better battery life making it an attractive, yet not quite perfect machine.
