Samsung second generation Series 9 NP900X4D


Coming out a year after the first Series 9, the second generation, now in ultrabook form, boasts a new design and a superlative screen.

Beautiful screen, Expansive 15 screen size, Still portable and light

Shallow keyboard, Keyboard backlighting quite dim, Fairly expensive

Nice laptop


Not bad for $899 (promo) and free shipping. I paid an additional $65 for 16gb of memory. I wanted something light and thin to carry around school with a good viewable screen. A month prior I bought an Asus x202 (11.3 inch screen) and realized it was...

Thin, nice battery life, upgradeable memory (upgraded to 16gb as soon as I received it) ; Bootup is fast, about 9 seconds I think and is ready to go. Sleek and I get compliments everytime

Sometime it crashes, hasnt happened often, but after it hibernates/sleeps ~ its done it a few times. I'd say 1 out of 25 times ; Also, unlike an Asus I bought a month prior, I have to keep reconnecting to my schools WIFI everytime after it goes to...

As Promised - upgraded the RAM


Successfully upgraded the RAM today from 4gb to 8gb. I just replaced the one 4gb DIMM with an 8gb DIMM. There are two slots so I could go to 16gb. Not sure if I need that in a laptop and since performance is better with matched DIMMs I will probably...

No cons, upgrading the memory was easy

Great Product


I know they are trying to keep the weight down but the screws on the bottom are TINY. I broke the tips off of two screwdrivers trying to get them off and I am hoping I didn't strip any in case I ever have to take it off again. I think they could have...

Super lightweight ; Incredible start up time (few seconds) ; Screen looks awesome ; 3 USB ports (for such a small laptop I thought that was pretty good) ; Price - This was a pro for me because I bought it on sale for $200 off. Though $1099 is a little...

4GB of RAM - On initial use I was listening to music and surfing the internet and it would start making the music sound "robotic" when it lagged. I added a 4 gig stick and deleted some bloatware and it runs fine now ; Windows 8 - Although I still am...

Only Ultrabook with 15" screen Very light Very fast

Lack of ethernet port and flimsy adapter Wireless connection constantly dropped, despite router and laptop being in same room Huge recovery partition (containing loads of bloatware), takes up 1/5 of the available space on the 128GB SSD
