  • Summary: Design wise, Samsung have done well by their 9-Series Ultrabook; the system is wrapped in dark cobalt blue aluminum chassis that adopts many of the design elements of an Apple Macbook Air, yet posses the large screen size of a MacBook Pro (albeit with better hardware) and a sticker prices that won't cause heart failure.

  • Excerpt: One of the best Ultrabooks currently available is without a doubt the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C, a model that now has bigger sibling in the form of the Series 9 NP900X4D. The new series 9 has a larger screen of 15 inches but has kept all of the advantages of the smaller model, including the sleek design and low weight.

Samsung Notebook Series 9 NP900X4C Ultrabook Review

APC
3 October 2012
  • Excerpt: You’ve gotta hand it to Samsung the vendor’s taking the Apple chase seriously. Of all the competitors in the consumer technology race we think Samsung is the one that most consistently nips at Apple’s heels and sometimes gets ahead. Bearing in mind that our current Intel notebook of choice comes from ASUS — the excellent UX31A — this is another strong showing from Samsung.
  • Pros: Great built quality good performance upgradable storage and RAM.
  • Cons: Only includes 128GB SSD.

LAPTOP Magazine
24 July 2012
  • Summary: Although we're disappointed with Samsung's decision to downgrade the 15-inch Series 9's SSD, the $1,399 NP900X4C boasts improved audio and retains the series' svelte design, beautiful 1600 x 900 display, fast boot time and long battery life, all for $100 less than the original.

  • Summary: Premium slim case. Amidst Samsung's Series 9 refresh, there is now a model featuring a matte 15 inch screen available. In return, the smallest member has not been updated. The South Korean manufacturer demands steep EUR 1999 (RRP) for speedy hardware in a slim case.

The screen's matte surface and the resolution are a good start. Also, we miss the HDMI and VGA adapter in scope of delivery.

Samsung Series 9 review (15-inch, mid-2012)

Engadget
9 April 2012
  • Summary: More than anything, the 15-inch Series 9 makes us giddy about what laptops will look like a year from now. After all, if the original Series 9 foretold a market full of skinny Ultrabooks, might this machine be a harbinger for other larger-screened Ultrabooks with fast performance and extra long battery life? As the only such laptop around right now , the Series 9 is impressive in its own right, though not quite the magic bullet we thought it would be.
  • Pros: Remarkably thin and light for its size, Long battery life, fast performance, Bright, matte display
  • Cons: Shallow keyboard, so-so trackpad, Narrow viewing angles, Unimpressive audio for the money
