A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Review date: 13 February, 2012. Review by: Jamie Carter January’s International CES may have been dominated by a new generation of ultrabooks, but Samsung has been playing the super-slim game for some time – with its 16.3mm-slim Series 9 laptops. Styl...
Good Keyboard layout; ambient light sensordriven backlighting; design; USB 3.0; screen; solid state HDD; powerful...
Bad microSD card support; uses adaptor for LAN; connect to VGA, Micro HDMI to VGA converter cable not included.
Bottom line On the face of it this beautifully designed, slim and feather-light laptop is a business laptop extraordinaire, for Windows devotees. Its design, keyboard and Intel i5-powered performance is awesome, though we’re not sure it’s suited to anyone than the...
Lets start with the positives: the NP9's screen is matte and has decent resolution (1366 x 768 pixels). It also has a decent average contrast ratio of 760:1. This is more than respectable when you compare it to the majority of laptops that are generall...
Good Matte panel, Nice design and finish, Good CPU performance, Battery life 5h15...
Bad Poor colour accuracy, Low gaming capacity, Very reduced interface connectivity...
Bottom line While it's more powerful than the MacBook Air, it suffers from the same faults, namely limited connectivity and very low capacity in games. It is nevertheless a light, well finished, low quality model that'll make an excellent alternative for those who...
The Series 9, much like the MacBook Air, has a sealed design, which means that the battery is housed inside the chassis and is not accessible externally. It has a 6-cell battery with a 5900mAh rating and it lasted 3hr 16min in our rundown test, in whi...
Good Excellent built quality and design Fast SSD Excellent screen...
Bad Wi-Fi adapter is not dual-band Ambient light sensor is sometimes erratic HDMI adapter isn’t supplied...
Bottom line The Samsung Series 9 has strong build quality, a sleek design and many great features that make it comfortable to use. It's high price tag definitely makes it a luxury item, but if you want excellent mobility and usability in the same package, it's har...
Well, it certainly kicks the competition to the kerb when it comes to specifications, connectivity and performance. But as it's aimed at the designer crowd, let's take a look at its visual appeal and build first. Though Samsung quotes its laptop as bei...

It's sleek, light and pretty impressive on the outside, but is the new Samsung 9000 series notebook a Mac Killer?Well, it certainly kicks the competition to the kerb when it comes to specifications, connectivity and performance. But as it's aimed at th...

Today we’ve managed to get the Samsung Series 9 ultra-portable laptop to review for you guys. With a very thin and lightweight design, the Samsung Series 9 900X3A laptop is very similar to the Apple MacBook Air.As well as this, some very impressive ha...
Good Great design, Powerful, Backlit keyboard, Battery life...
Bottom line Overall, the Samsung Series 9 900X3A ultra-portable laptop has been an absolute joy to both test and review. The build quality is out-standing and the included hardware has made the Series 9 laptop a great alternative to the Apple MacBook Air for all o...
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 basical...
Bottom line 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...
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 first time you see it, you’re al...
Good Beautiful, practical and powerful enough to be worth the investment, screen and battery life superb, great backlit keyboard...
Bad Pricey, touch pad is finicky, replaceable battery would have been nice...
Bottom line The Series 9 gives the MacBook Air real competition, at a really high price. You'll want it, but you may not be able to afford it...
Before ultrabook became the new buzzword in mobile computing, the Samsung Series 9 was the pinnacle of ultra-thin laptop PC.Exhibiting style, portability and premium specifications, it was arguably the closest thing to a MacBook Air a Windows user could g...
Samsung is better known for its phones and televisions than its computers, but that may well be set to change with the release of the Series 9 laptops. The Series 9s are beautiful; with their unique tapered base, fold out ports, backlit keyboard and l...
Good Beautiful design; Speedy and usable;...
Bad Crazy expensive against the competition;...
Is the Samsung Series 9 an alternative to Apple's money-no-object MacBook Air? In the world of high-end ultraportables, few Windows laptops can rival Apple’s MacBook Air. It’s an exclusive club: Sony's VAIO Z Series and Dell’s now defunct Adamo have pr...
Samsung's currently going through the courts for copying Apple's smartphones and tablets, and we're sure Cupertino isn't too happy about the Series 9 either, which is doing its best to mimic the MacBook Air, from its oversized, buttons-integrated t...
Good Impressively light, Backlit keyboard, Large touch pad, Good battery life, SSD is reasonably fast, Bundled software is unobtrusive...
Bad Multitouch touch pad still dismays...
Bottom line Samsung's Series 9 is a gorgeously thin piece of equipment, which would be great for any traveller looking for something light, thin and portable. If the MacBook Air is out of the question due to OS X, this may be your next port of call — just be prepa...
Samsung had a great 2010, producing a series of highly impressive machines. But it got a little left behind in the ultraportable stakes. Here to rectify this is our long-awaited Samsung 900XSA review - otherwise known as the Samsung 9 Series. Boasting...

When it comes to designer computer hardware, few companies are as emulation-worthy as Apple. Its 13in Macbook Air has been the standard by which sleek ultraportables have been judged since the original Air came out in 2008. Few companies are in a better a...
Good Thin & light, Duralumin construction, Amazing screen, Sandy Bridge internals, Superb glass touch pad...
Bad Not as sexy as the Macbook Air, Fingerprint magnet, Expensive...
Bottom line Lighter and arguably thinner than Apple's Macbook Air, the 13.3in, Series 9 900X3A may not be as pretty and attracts more fingerprints, but offers far more power and connectivity. Combined with a truly excellent screen, surprisingly good speakers, the bes...
Good Thin, stylish design, Long battery life, Excellent screen, Secondgeneration Intel Core i5 CPU...
Bad High price makes the MacBook Air look downright affordable by comparison, Flexy case design doesn't feel as good as the MacBook Air's...
Bottom line The Samsung Series 9 certainly won't be for every wallet, but this light, well-featured and striking 13.3in. notebook is the closest the Windows world will ever come to a MacBook Air. However, its higher-than-the-Air price will be hard to stomach.…...
Whether you're an Apple hater or a fruity fan boy, there's no doubting how impressive the MacBook Air is. A number of PC manufacturers have attempted to mimic this ultra-slim notebook's combination of gorgeous aesthetics and usable everyday performanc...
Good Wonderful aesthetics and great performance...
Bad For this price, we'd have liked a better screen.
Bottom line A stunning slimline laptop that provides a realistic Windows-based alternative to the Apple MacBook Air...
The year of the Ultrabook is well and truly here and anything within a rulers length and processors whirr of certain paradigms is titled excitedly with the moniker. Samsung's Series 9 arrives in its second beautiful incarnation to exclamations of the u...

Bad Touchpad takes getting used to, Lower Resolution than we'd have liked, Battery Life...
Bottom line The second generation of Series 9 is a beautiful machine, with a good amount of power, but a few little niggles and could have better battery life making it an attractive, yet not quite perfect machine...
Samsung's Series 9 laptop is looking to take on the Apple MacBook Air. Although few manufacturers can manage to match the Apple for style, Samsung has managed it with the tiny Series 9, and it's an absolute cracker. Read on to find out more. The goodTh...
Good The design of the Series 9 is the most impressive part of this laptop, and although it's not quite as thin as the MacBook Air, it's easily as attractive. It's also incredibly slim and lightweight, making it a machine that you really can take with you wherever you go. The 13.3-inch screen gets a 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. It's relatively sharp, and offers excellent colour reproduction. It's also...
Bad With a machine this thin, there's no space for an optical drive. We didn't find this a problem, but it's worth considering before you buy. The Samsung also lags slightly behind the MacBook Air when it comes to the design of the bottom of the machine – while the top is finished in brushed aluminium, the bottom is a rather cheap feeling plastic.
Bottom line Overall, however, the Series 9 is an excellent computer. It's a great choice for those seeking a Windows alternative to the Apple MacBook Air, even if there's not a lot in the specs or designs to differentiate the two machines. Samsung Series 9 laptop...
Thinner, lighter than AirThe 900X3A, also known as the Series 9, is nearly identical in size to the 13inch MacBook Air. It's ever so slightly thinner and lighter, but you'd never notice it unless you came armed with calipers and scales.First impressions a...
Apple seems to have had the monopoly on stylish looking computers for quite some time. That's not to say there aren't nice Windows-based PCs out there, but Apple still leads the way in design. As we've come to expect from the Koreans, though, Samsung w...
Good Thin and light, great screen, powerful processor and plenty of RAM...
Bad Expensive, Windows 7 Home Premium, limited ports and docking options...
Bottom line The Samsung 900X is, in many ways, a perfect laptop. However, it is missing some key features that make it less than ideal for business customers. If you can work around these, though, it's a powerful and useful machine...
The Samsung Series 9 laptop turned heads at CES back in January. Here was an ultra portable that for the first time might match the second generation MacBook Air for looks, and even beat it in power. Has it lived up to those claims? Find out here i...
Good Stuffed full of power...
Bad It isn't the super sexy MacBook Air slayer you might have hoped for...
Bottom line The Samsung Series 9 is packing more power than any other Windows ultra portable, and it does so in an attractive looking shell. That said, the £1299 pricetag is something you need to give a long hard think about.If size and reasonable (rather than max...
Though Apple didn't invent the thin and light market, it did change it from a hugely expensive and slow as treacle ‘executive’ product segment to something that humans would probably like to use.And then it stagnated.Since the launch of the Air in...
We were intrigued when Samsung announced its ultraportable 9 Series at CES, a competitor with a similarly steep price. The Samsung 900X3A’s slender chassis is made from the same stuff as military aircraft, but this laptop is a lot more attractive th...
Good Sandy bridge tech, Slender and gorgeous body, Beautiful screen to finish.
Bad Touchpads with integrated buttons, 128GB of storage is stingy...
Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors aren’t just faster than the previous generation, they’re also more power efficient. For a laptop the main benefit this gives is less heat, allowing thinner and lighter designs. The Samsung Series 9 laptop is the firs...
Bottom line A great example of how Intel's new processors let manufacturers build powerful and slim laptops, but it's expensive and not quite as well built as the MacBook Air...
Samsung's NP900X3A has been around longer than Intel's ultrabook campaign, though it would fit comfortably into the category anyway – Samsung was an early imitator of Apple’s designs. In fact it was the original pretender to the MacBook Air throne as t...
Bottom line 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. W...
The Apple MacBook Air has got competition in the eye-candy stakes, as the Samsung 900X3A nearly matches up to the Apple's slender chassis and classy finish. Samsung has deliberately copied the Air to make a laptop as slim and light – and has half succe...
Bottom line Overall, we can't help feeling that the Samsung promises more than it delivers. It's also more than £200 more expensive than the equivalent MacBook Air, so while the Samsung is well-matched with Apple's contender, it doesn't do enough to beat it...
In the world of high-end ultraportables, few Windows laptops can rival Apple's MacBook Air. It's an exclusive club: Sony's VAIO Z Series and Dell's now defunct Adamo have provided stiff competition in the past, but few have perfected the formula. Now, it'...
Bottom line Samsung takes on Apple at its own game, but the Series 9's slender physique comes at a serious cost...
The first version of Samsung's Series 9 laptop wasn't an official Ultrabook, but this refreshed version brings it into line with Intel's specification. With a dark brushed metal finish, curved hinge and rounded corners, it has a distinctive appearance...
Bottom line A great looking laptop, but with some frustrations and a high price it's difficult to recommend...
Samsung's Series 9 laptop arrived in a blaze of publicity, with a glamorous unveiling party at Harrods attended by models and, bizarrely, an England international cricketer.What prompted such a lavish affair? The Series 9 is certainly different: it's t...

Bad Computing power isn't great; expensive; needs adapter cable for wired networking...
Bottom line A stunning-looking laptop, but we'd like better performance for our money...
The Series 9 is Samsung's ultraportable model, with a slimline profile and sleek design. We found that, while it was lightweight, it was a little lacking in performance power and battery life...
Good Sleek, Comfortable...
Bad No very powerful, Expensive...
Bottom line The Samsung Series 9 is a sleek machine backed up my middling performance. Housed within its duralumin body are a Intel Core i5-2467M, 4 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of storage. We still can’t get over how good looking the Samsung Series 9 is. And with a travel...
Samsung claims that the Series 9 owes its design to fighter jets. Well, maybe: It has bay doors and a sleek exterior. However, based on its test results, you wouldn't want this laptop anywhere near the front lines. Its 13.3 inch, 1600 x 900 pixel screen h...

Earlier this year Samsung introduced their new Series 9 notebooks which strive for industrial design excellence while sparing no costs. In layman’s terms this means Samsung has tried to shoe horn leading edge technology into a beautiful, yet razor thin...
Bottom line To many of our readers the Series 9 will look like an almost desperate attempt by Samsung to create a bona fide Macbook Air competitor or at the very least make their presence known in the ultra portable market. Well, a statement has certainly been mad...
Of all the new Windows laptops that have made it to the market this year, Samsung’s Series 9 has me most excited. A clear competitor against the MacBook Air, the Series 9 manages to succeed where Apple has so far failed with the Air: it’s packing an In...

Many manufacturers are trying to equal Apple when it comes to the thinnest and lightest laptop out there, a performance that Apple succeeded with their MacBook Air. If you ask me, an extra inch or 100 grams are not that important if you feel comfortable w...
Bottom line The Samsung Series 9 is a very classy and versatile computer, being probably the lightest 13.3 inch computer out there and probably also the thinnest in its class. It has great hardware and is utterly enjoyable to use, but comes at a pretty steep price...
Bottom line The Samsung 900X3A is a promising ultra-portable laptop. It closely matches the latest MacBook Air, our current favourite, with similar weight, size and features. The 900X3A could be a good alternative if you want to stick with Windows, but much will d...
Samsung, for me, is one of the world's top three manufacturers, alongside Apple and Sony. So the Series 9 should be as special as its peerless TVs and Galaxy tablets. And it is a very nice laptop – if you have some compelling reason to need Windows. I wou...
Of the three, the Samsung Series 9 is in the middle weight-wise, but can lay claim to being the thinnest – even if the Mac could also clinch that title if you averaged out its slenderest and fattest bits. Clearly, things are getting a bit silly as manufa...
The first impression given by Samsung’s new 900X notebook is that it is the Windows equivalent of the MacBook Air. It’s thin and light at 1.31 kg, but feels solid and firm to the touch. While the all black finish made it minimalistic in its appearance...
Lenovo’s monolith-like ThinkPads have traditionally been the antithesis of sleek and hip computer design. Purposefully business-y in both form and function, they’re not the sort of notebooks one whips out at Starbucks in hope of generating a little gee...
We liked the look of the original Sandy Bridge-based Samsung Series 9 laptop, so the slimmer, even-more-lightweight Ivy Bridge-powered model had us salivating when we saw it at a preview in Sydney last month. But as always, the question with laptops i...
The ultraportable laptop market seems to be going gangbusters at the moment. Between the lovely MacBook Air , luxury thin-and-lights like the Sony VAIO Z and Samsung Series 9, and the recently launched ultrabooks , most of the action in mobile comp...
Bottom line With the newest 11.6” Samsung Series 9 notebook, Samsung has successfully demonstrated that you can indeed have a sexy ultraportable computer without ripping off the MacBook Air design or charging an arm and two legs like Sony did for the VAIO Z. It's a...
