Samsung Series 9 900X3A


Samsung's metal-clad MacBook Air equivalent packs in a 2nd-gen Core i5 processor, USB 3.0, a backlit keyboard, an excellent screen and an amazing touchpad!

Thin & light ; Duralumin construction ; Amazing screen ; Sandy Bridge internals ; Superb glass touch pad

Not as sexy as the Macbook Air ; Fingerprint magnet ; Expensive

Samsung Series 9 Review: Hands-on


Samsung have tarted up their exceptional Series 9 ultrabook, we stopped by to give it a test drive at CES 2012.

This is a beautiful computer, a luxury option and a suitable alternative to a MacBook Air. Of course it's expensive, good things are.

Samsung 9 Series notebook (900X3A) review


The Samsung 9 Series notebook (900X3A) is beautiful on the outside and smart on the inside. With its super-responsive screen and 4GB of ram, it's the ideal laptop for any technophobe

Sandy bridge tech ; Slender and gorgeous body ; Beautiful screen to finish

Touchpads ; 128GB of storage is stingy

Samsung Series 9 900X3A


Before you get your hands on the Samsung Series 9 you know it's going to be thin and light, but it's only when you lift it out of the box you realise just how thin and how light it really is and how sleek it feels. The stunning design of the Series 9...

Beautiful, practical and powerful enough to be worth the investment, screen and battery life superb, great backlit keyboard

Pricey, touch pad is finicky, replaceable battery would have been nice

The stunning design of the Series 9 is sleek, slim and sturdy all at the same time. It's amazing that Samsung can pack performance, battery power and the ports you actually need in, along with a great keyboard and screen, plus surprisingly good sound....

Samsung Series 9 900X3A review


Thinner than a MacBook Air, but can the Series 9 justify the extra cost?

An excellent laptop, but the higher performance doesn't quite justify the extra cost compared to a MacBook Air

Samsung Series 9 review


Simply super-looking. But power is sacrificed

Great looks ; Featherweight ; Excellent screen ; Fast resume from sleep ; SSD

Mediocre battery life ; Fiddly trackpad ; Poor graphics ; Pricey

When you think of the thinnest and lightest laptops in the world, a few names immediately spring to mind. For most people, the Apple MacBook Air would be the first, and for those in the know, the first Samsung Series 9 900X3A would be second.

Samsung Series 9 Ivy Bridge laptop review


A thin base that tapers towards the edges allows the Series 9 look impressively thin, and it's not just an illusion: even when taking the rubber feet on the base into consideration, the notebook is only 14mm thick with the lid closed. (If it wasn't for...

Samsung's Series 9 is a stunning laptop that's superbly built, has an excellent screen and which feels good to use. It's the thinnest notebook on the market and among the lightest. Even so, it runs an Intel Ivy Bridge CPU that supplies more than decent...

Samsung Series 9 review


The original Series 9 ultra-portable was the first laptop we'd reviewed which adhered to Intel's Ultrabook specification, even though Samsung wasn't allowed to officially label it as such. We thought it was an exciting sign of things to come, but a few...

The best Windows Ultrabook there is, and an Ultimate award winner

Samsung NP900X3A-B01 review


The Samsung Series 9 notebook was an early attempt to emulate the Apple MacBook Air, and now the Samsung Samsung NP900X3A-B01 has had a small processor boost.

It's such a shame that the Samsung can't squeeze a bit more speed from its processor or more life out of its battery, as it is a rather nice laptop. The backlit keyboard and non-reflective screen make it very easy to use in all kinds of environments....
