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.
Excerpt: Very rarely do we get a laptop that is completely unique and leaves us awe-struck. Quite frankly, we cannot remember when it last happened, till we got my hands on the Samsung Series 9 laptop.
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

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.
Summary: Granted, the fresh Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C-A01 does not really live to the expectations of the original one. But it has many pros. So the fact that it doesn’t pack that many features or a smaller price is not something to really make on stay away from this model.
Summary: The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3B has many attributes to make it desirable. Design, performance, portability and screen are all points in its favor. But battery life – 5 hours – and few ports count as its major faults.
