Reviews for the Samsung 900X3A-B01RU

70% Samsung Series 9 review
Source: CNet English
Samsung's first Series 9 was a stunning piece of kit, offering slim, light and powerful computing before the word ultrabook had even slipped out of Intel's mouth. 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.

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. We especially like the ports at the side which can be hidden away when not in use.

This is a machine very much for the professional show-off to be seen with – a salesman or a designer. If you’re not in this group, you still might appreciate the power and weight combination on offer here. I was extremely sceptical of the Series 9 concept to begin with, as I am wary of all “look-at-me!” designs. But by the end of the review period, it made perfect sense. It's a nice machine to use.

Now that Samsung has corrected some of its original pricing issues thanks to the ultrabook compeition, the Series 9 is a much more attractive 13-inch ultraportable than it previously was. The performance is exceptional and the display is one of the best for using outside in bright light. Add in a nice keyboard and great warranty and it is a very attractive option.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
