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...

Review Samsung Series 9 900X4B-A01DE Notebook

 

Premium slim case. Amidst Samsung's Series 9 refresh, there is now a model featuring a matte 15 inch screen available. In return, the smallest member has not been updated. The South Korean manufacturer demands steep EUR 1999 (RRP) for speedy hardware...

Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C User Review

 

The 15-inch Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C is a larger-than-average Ultrabook with a thin profile, beautiful design and excellent battery life. Is that enough to make it a great laptop? Keep reading to find out what one owner has to say about this Ultrabook.

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) Review

 

Although 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 life, all for...

Very thin and light, Bright, crisp 1600 x 900 display, Good audio, Quick boot time, Long battery life

Shallow key travel, Very slow SSD transfer speeds

Review: Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C-A01US (2012)

 

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 9-Series NP900X4C-A02 15.1-inch Ultrabook Laptop Review

 

Design wise, Samsung have done well by their 9-Series Ultrabook; the system is wrapped in dark cobalt blue aluminum chassis that adopts many of the design elements of an Apple Macbook Air, yet posses the large screen size of a MacBook Pro (albeit with...

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...

Samsung 900X4C review

 

Is this Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook a MacBook Air killer? We put the 15incher through the Stuff.tv laptop torture chamber

Too expensive – but with a better screen it'd be a MacBook killer

Samsung 900X4C review

 

Samsung's Series 9 notebook range includes the NP900X4C-A01UK, a 15in screen model now packing Intel Ivy Bridge power and familiar Air-like styling.

That great anti-glare display and crisp all-aluminium shell lift the Samsung Series 9 15-incher above the ultrabook rabble, and speedy Intel silicon inside keeps the notebook fast and very far from ephemeral. If you need a light and limber laptop with...
