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...

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...

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...

The Series 9 is a tantalizing machine that fills the niche of the 15-inch Ultrabook, but I know Samsung can do a better job on the keyboard and...

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...

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...

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...

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...

The Samsung 900X3A is one of the sleekest notebooks we've ever come across, wtih the exception of the Macbook Air. And that really is what this fabulously stylish product is modelled after, in a sense, so we think it's quite a compliment to...

4.00 As for its position vis-à-vis the new crop of ultrabooks, the NP900X3A-B01UB's display can't match the 1,600 by 900-pixel panorama of the Editors' Choice ($1,099, 4 stars), but it has a backlit keyboard like the ($799.99, 3.5...

It's not technically an ultrabook, but the updated, 2.9-pound Samsung Series 9 (NP900X3A-B01UB) is a highly attractive ultraportable....

Samsung’s Series 9 was one of the first Windows-based ultrabooks out of the gate during the 2011 revival of the category, and little has changed since its launch early this year.And who can blame Samsung for its unabashed focus to out-design the...

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...

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...

Though Apple was not the first to create an ultra slim notebook, the popularity of the Macbook Air did not go unnoticed. PC makers have been clamoring to produce a suitable rival and Samsung seems to be the first to succeed in its endeavor. The...

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...

Saying that the Samsung Series 9 is a deadly assault weapon, is putting it mildly. This slinky little machine actually assaults us from all sides, it’s sexy black duralumin body assaults our senses, our old preconceptions of what a notebook should...

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...
