Reviews for the Samsung 900X3C-A01AT

80% Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C-A01 review (13-inch, 2012)
Source: CNet English
The first version of the Samsung Series 9 debuted before the word "Ultrabook" had even been coined by Intel. It was a proto-ultrabook, a thin-and-light 13-inch laptop that looked like a Windows variation of the MacBook Air, clad in black duralumin. If you're looking for a beautifully built, extremely thin, light, and portable ultrabook, the Samsung Series 9 rises above the competition.

The Samsung Series 9 is a bold move by the company, and the range certainly turns heads with its slim design and mostly quiet operation. But underneath all of that finesse lies a few gaping omissions, such as the absurd use of dongles, average screen, dismal speakers, and a keyboard that will take a while to get used to. While it does provide better than average performance and delivers on its promised battery life, it seems that the Series 9 still has a little bit further to go before it can really make a lasting impression.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
