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.
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
