Samsung Series 9 NP900X3B
28 November 2014
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.
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.
Conclusion: But if you want a desktop replacement that's easy to pick up for travel, and that offers a terrific typing, video viewing, and music listening experience to boot, the ATIV Book 9 2014 Edition is a splendid choice. It boasts everything we look for in a premium laptop, and then some.
Pros: Elegant aluminum design, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, Loud and clear audio, Vivid 1080p display, Long battery life
Cons: Only 128GB of storage, Middling benchmark performance
Summary: The purchase of a handset like the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D be carefully considered because it is all too easy to fall in love at first sight, dazzled by the stylish design and thin profile, without carefully assessing whether what hide beneath this beauty is really what it does to his case.
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

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.
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
