Excerpt: To be a great choice for a business laptop , a device needs to offer both power and portability. The Samsung Series 9 business laptop nearly meets the requirements, but falls flat in a few key areas. While its portability is great and the battery life is excellent, this business laptop's performance and connectivity options could use some improvement.
Pros: The Samsung Series 9 is lightweight and slim, and it has an attractive design.
Cons: This device does not have a built-in optical drive.
Excerpt: Samsung’s Series 9 was one of the first Windows-based ultrabooks out of the gate during the 2011 revival of the category, and little has changed since its launch early this year. And who can blame Samsung for its unabashed focus to out-design the MacBook Air with a different, snazzier, curvier, blacker look?
Pros: An all-around capable ultrabook, with thoughtful features and a quality design. Dazzlingly bright screen. Average battery life (about 4.5 hours).
Cons: Much too expensive. Surprisingly lackluster performance, particularly at graphical tasks. SOL if you need a full SD card reader. Bummer clickpad problems.
