Samsung Series 9 review (15-inch, mid-2012)

 

The Series 9 dazzles with its performance and striking design, but a machine this pricey deserves a comfier keyboard and even nicer display.

Remarkably thin and light for its sizeLong battery life, fast performanceBright, matte display

Shallow keyboard, so-so trackpadNarrow viewing anglesUnimpressive audio for the money

Hundreds of executives have signed the open letter in support of DACA.
