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 Samsung NP900X3C is a great notebook features a stunning design its main strength, and remarkable technical specifications. The display is of the highest quality. Connectivity is complete, and also includes an HDMI port.
Pros: Screen Resolution, Design, Door microHDMI, memory card reader, HD webcam; Connectivity.
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
Summary: Endurance with style. As slim as a MacBook, as fast as a workstation and as portable as a netbook – series 9 reaches for the superlatives and is surprisingly successful in doing so. Why a "very good" is justified even without a VGA port can be read in this review.
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...
Cons: No VGA, HDMI only with adapter, No docking port, Long battery recharge time, To stay stylish, more ports don't have to be installed into the chassis. A native docking that make plugging and unplugging superfluous could make such a subnotebook perfect.
Excerpt: There's something undeniably beautiful about Samsung's Series 9 (900X). It's not that it's just thin; I've reviewed many ultrabooks where the adjective has merited use, but whereas ultrabooks remain wide and tall, the 900X doesn't.
Pros: Chiselled good looks; Incredibly functional form; World's lightest notebook;
