Review Update Samsung 900X4C-A04DE Notebook

 

Longer battery life - courtesy of Ivy Bridge. Samsung's Series 9

sleek aluminum unibody; construction, look and feel; up-to-date port selection; connections via adapter; input devices are a pleasure to use; non-glare display with HD+; high TFT brightness; good multi-media performance; reliable Turbo Boost 2.0;...

low contrast levels; narrow viewing angles; "slow" mSATA-SSD; high temperature levels under load; mediocre sound from speakers

There isn't a lot. An example of a 15" laptop with a slim aluminum chassis is the Acer Aspire Timline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook. The Asus Zenbook UX32VD is equally well-built, but has a 13.3" display. If you are prepared to spend a lot more money, get...

Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C User Review

 

The Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C is one of the few large screen notebooks in the Ultrabook format and offers a 15" matte display with 1600 x 900 resolution in an exceptionally thin chassis.

Exceptionally thin and light for a 15-inch notebook ; Excellent battery operation time ; Robust and stylish construction ; Exceptionally large trackpad

Non-premium display in a premium notebook ; Needs special dongles for the network and display devices ; Weak Wi-Fi performance and fairly noisy fan when under load (for me, not everyone) ; Expensive

The concept of a lightweight notebook with a large display should appeal to many users who value portability but struggle with a small screen, perhaps due to aging eyes. I hadn’t consciously noticed that I was sitting closer to the 13.3″ display on the...

Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4C-A02US)

 

The Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4C-A02US) is a high-powered ultrabook with a large screen, very good battery life, and a thin portable shell. It's good for travelling artists or power users who want to compute untethered without waiting for a hard...

Equipped with solid-state drive. Long battery life

Expensive. Limited free storage space. VGA and HDMI dongles not included. Ethernet dongle is proprietary

Samsung's updated Series 9 ultrabook gives you multimedia power and battery life, but its high price and prefilled SSD may turn you off.

Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4C)

 

The Samsung Series 9 15-inch (NP900X4C) improves upon the original 15-inch Series 9 in almost every way.

Click to EnlargeAlthough we're disappointed with Samsung's decision to downgrade the 15-inch Series 9's SSD, the $1,399 NP900X4C boasts improved audio and retains the series' svelte design, beautiful 1600 x 900 display, fast boot time and long battery...

Samsung’s New Series 9 Notebook Is the Best of the Big Boys

 

If ultrabooks had a 15-inch category, the 2012 edition of Samsung's Series 9 would be the leader of the pack.

Amazingly portable and powerful, with a screen to die for. Surprisingly sturdy, tough design. “Silent mode” kills fans

Keyboard backlighting too dim to be useful, even at highest brightness setting. Thin profile means very shallow key travel

Samsung Series 9 (NP900X4C)

 

The Samsung Series 9 15-inch laptop does a lot to improve upon the previous model from last year and it certainly shows. It has a very portable and attractive design and a nice-looking display. It has solid performance thanks to the third-gen Intel CPU...

Great product, great deal

 

Picked this up for my wife's small business and we absolutely love it. It was a replacement for a MacBook Pro and has been a major step forward. Was a bit concerned about the switch to Windows 8 but it hasn't been an issue -- in fact, like it better...
