Excerpt: As we learned with the Acer Timeline M3 we reviewed last month, Ultrabooks are not only growing in number, but in size. That’s the case with the Samsung Series 9 , which comes in both 13.3- and 15-inch flavors.
Excerpt: Samsung Series 9 Monitor review Manufacturer: Samsung UK Price (as reviewed): £799.99 (inc VAT) US Price (as reviewed): $999.99 (ex Tax) It can be easy to overlook a monitor when going through an upgrade cycle – after all, you won’t get more frames per second by simply changing out your display.
Excerpt: Samsung's Series 9 laptops have a lot to prove. Since the day Samsung showed the first one off at CES last year, they've consistently been priced higher than the equivalent MacBook Air, and that can be a pretty hard sell.

Pros: Stunning and elegant design, excellent matte full HD display, fast and light.
