Samsung Series 9 13.3-inch Ultrabook review

21 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Samsung's Series 9 is definitely one of the best-looking Ultrabooks. It's extremely sleek and comes equipped with an excellent 13.3-inch matte PLS display with a resolution of 1600x900. The chassis is made in aluminium which makes the Series 9 both light and sturdy. Today we are taking a closer look at the NP900X3C / NP900X3E model.

Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D Windows 8 ultrabook review

19 December 2012
  • Summary: A year ago most ultrabooks sold for around $1000 and up. Today you can find models priced as low as $600 or as high as $1500. The Samsung Series 9 sits somewhere in the middle — and the model I purchased offers pretty strong performance for the price. It doesn’t provide a no-compromise experience. The battery isn’t replaceable. The RAM and storage aren’t upgradeable. You need dongles to connect an external monitor or Ethernet cable. There’s no touchscreen.

Samsung Series 9 (NP-900X3C) Review

1 November 2012
  • Summary: 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 the exquisite build quality are truly awesome. It costs a lot of money, but then again, this is the best option for a Windows ultrabook which actually competes with and beats the MacBook Air, overall.
  • Pros: Unbelievably well built, Stunning form factor, Slimness defies all common logic, Very good system performance, Excellent battery life, Crisp & bright display
  • Cons: Costs a hell lot of money, Heats up quite a bit

Samsung Series 9 review (13-inch, mid-2012)

6 July 2012
  • Summary: In recent weeks, we've been receiving an uptick in emails from readers, asking for help in choosing an Ultrabook (not the most affordable Ultrabook, but the best -- our fans do tend to be spec-obsessed, after all). While we can't outright make a decision for you kind folks, we've taken to suggesting a very small handful, and the 13-inch Series 9 always makes that list. Here's why: it's carefully made, with an exceptionally thin and light build.
  • Pros: Beautiful, exceptionally thin design, Best-in-class battery life, Fast boot-up, Bright, matte display
  • Cons: Trackpad could use more fine-tuning, Pricey compared to similar Ultrabooks

This slimline laptop has good battery life and decent performance, but the screen is not as attractive as the design.

14 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The Series 9 is Samsung's ultraportable model, with a slimline profile and sleek design. We found that, while it was lightweight, it was a little lacking in performance power and battery life.

  • Excerpt: Facelift. Under the name 900X3C-A04DE Samsung offers the well-known 13.3-inch Premium Subnotebook with fresh hardware from Intel. In addition to the matte display with a resolution of 1600x900 pixels, an Intel Core i7-3517U dual-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD will be offered. Prices start from around 1500 Euros (~$1940). With the 900X3C-A04DE Samsung is offering their third generation of premium subnotebooks.
  • Pros: Design, workmanship and balance, High quality unibody case, New communications options, Maintenance without much effort, Good input devices and illumination, Impressive PLS-Display, Matte screen surface, Good application performance, Very good battery life, The slim case in 'Mineral Ash Black', the matte PLS display (1600 x 900 Pixel) and the system performance.

  • Cons: Limited expandability, Straightforward interface equipment, Card reader is hard to reach, No VGA or HDMI adapter included, Emissions while under stress, A second USB 3.0 port and the possibility to upgrade the RAM. An integrated WWAN module in this clase would be an excellent selling point.

Samsung's Series 9 ultra-slim notebook

6 September 2011
  • Summary: By for the base Series 9 model, and thereby going toe to toe with Apple, Samsung is showing bold confidence in its product. For the most part, I'd say that confidence is warranted. The Series 9 looks great, feels slim and slick, and doesn't weigh much. The solid-state drive makes it fast and responsive, and the low-voltage Sandy Bridge processor more than holds its own—even catching up to last year's regular-voltage CPUs in certain tests.

Review Samsung 900X3A Subnotebook

4 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Samsung's 13.3 inch 900X3A supplies state of the art technology and the best mobility qualities to an equal amount for 1600 euros. An economic ultra low voltage core with incorporated Intel HD Graphics 3000 is onboard with the Sandy Bridge processor , Core i5-2537M. Together with the swift 128 GB SSD from Samsung, a system performance is created that outshines many gaming notebooks without an SSD (only in PCMark Vantage, not in 3D performance).
  • Pros: 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 Apple-style mouse pad, Concealed interfaces, Once again, the accurate deployment of an SSD shows what potential can be drawn out of a mediocre system with ULV CPU.
  • Cons: No VGA, HDMI only with adapter, No docking port, Long battery recharge time

Expert Review

28 March 2011
  • Conclusion: 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 the text to reflect that change.
  • Pros: Incredibly thin, light, Very good performance, Sturdy feel, Bright display, Long warranty
  • Cons: Pricey, Mediocre battery life, No optical drive, Limited port selection
