PC Magazine

Samsung NP900X3C Review

Review guidelines
13 June 2013
  • Summary: The Samsung NP900X3C is a great notebook features a stunning design, however, its main strength, and remarkable technical specifications. The display is of the highest quality. Connectivity is complete, and also includes an HDMI port. The audio surrounds sound and features quick-start functions that allow you to start working immediately. If you want to find the right-a defect is the storage capacity, 128 GB is few, although it is a solid state disk.
  • Pros: Screen Resolution, Design, Door microHDMI, memory card reader, HD webcam; Connectivity
  • Cons: Storage capacity

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.

13 October 2012
  • Summary: 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.

  • 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. The fast mSATA SSD (SATA III) contributes its fair share aswell.
  • 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 Ativ Book 9 review: Last year's Series 9 with a new name

14 April 2012
  • Summary: Formerly the Samsung Series 9, the rebranded Ativ Book 9 got little more than a change in name; the laptop feels dated, as it lacks a touch screen and the benefits of newer Intel processors.
  • Pros: The Samsung Ativ Book 9 is still one of the smallest and best-built Windows 8 ultrabooks around, and has a crisp 1080p display.
  • Cons: It lacks a touch screen, and battery life is disappointing for such an expensive laptop.

Samsung Series 9 (13 in)

8 April 2012
  • Summary: The $1,649 Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A certainly won't be for every wallet, but this light, well-featured, and striking 13-incher is the closest the Windows world will ever come to a MacBook Air. However, its higher-than-the-Air price will be hard to stomach.
  • Pros: A thin, stylish design, long battery life, excellent screen, and a new second-generation Intel Core i5 CPU make the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3A one of the best ultrathin Windows laptops we've ever seen.
  • Cons: The Series 9's way-too-high sticker price makes the MacBook Air look downright affordable by comparison; the flexy case design doesn't feel as good as the MacBook Air's, either.
