  • Conclusion: Bundled software in the Series 9 was kept to a minimum, so you get a trial version of Office 2010 as well as Norton Internet Security. There’s also a slew of Wild Tangent games, which I highly recommend you uninstall as they have been known to cause more harm than good. Samsung also bundles a few of its apps for multimedia, file migration, and restoring the system, as well as their software launcher which looks suspiciously familiar – any guesses where you’ve seen it...

Samsung Series 9 (March 2012)

CNET
22 April 2012
  • Summary: The new Samsung Series 9 has received a boost in power over its predecessor as well as a considerable makeover. Sadly though, its high price makes it difficult to recommend over similarly performing ultrabooks.
  • Cons: Expensive; average performance not justified by price; underwhelming battery life.

Samsung Series 9 (13.3in, 2012)

HEXUS

  • Conclusion: Samsung's Series 9 continues to serve as an indication of what tomorrow's computers will offer; strong performance, ultra-fast responsiveness and lush visuals in an exquisitely-thin and luxuriously-crafted form factor. This is, quite simply, the most beautiful laptop we've experienced and only in person will you get a true feel for how impossibly thin and light it really is.

Samsung Series 9 15 inch

LAPTOP Magazine
23 March 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Series 9 15-inch is a notebook that straddles multiple categories. It has the screen size of a mainstream laptop but is light and thin enough to be considered an ultraportable. We love its spacious 1600 x 900 display, amazingly fast boot time, and long battery life. Yet, for a $1,499 system, there's a few things that are lacking.
  • Pros: Very thin and light, Bright crisp 1600 x 900 display, Long battery life, Fast SSD, Very quick boot time
  • Cons: Shallow key travel, Mediocre speakers

  • Conclusion: Samsung does well with the specs of Series 9. It is equipped with the Core i5-2537M CPU that is dual core and runs at 1.40GHz. Along with that, my review unit featured 4GB of RAM and a 120GB SSD which made booting up the system and launching applications really fast. The Integrated Intel HD Graphics aren’t necessarily the best for 3D games but this laptop isn’t really designed for gaming.

Samsung Series 9 2012 Review: Who Said Samsung Can't Do Cool?

Gizmodo
11 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Samsung Series 9 was one of the best Windows ultraportable laptops last year. Even though it didn’t quite keep up on specs or benchmarks with some of the top-end machines, it was the most usable of the bunch. This year, as ultrabooks have made massive improvements over the past generation, the Series 9 remains one of the best.

Review: Samsung Series 9 13" inch ultra-light notebook

Canadian Reviewer

  • Excerpt: actively competed in the North American notebook space. Their models back then were austere in looks, safe in styling and swathed in glossy plastic, nothing special really. Their Series 9 notebook , however is one of the most impressive Windows 7 thin-and-light notebooks we've seen this year. Offering a perfect balance between portability and power never before seen in this class of notebook.

  • Excerpt: Samsung introduced its thin-and-light Series 9 laptop last year, well before Intel came up with the Ultrabook initiative. As such, you won't find Samsung touting the latest version of the Series 9 as an Ultrabook on its Web site, even though it basically can be classified as one, and is the best in the category. The 13.3in "new" Series 9 that we are reviewing here really is a thing of beauty, both to look at and to hold.
