Last year we tested the entry-level model of the Series 9, but were disappointed that Samsung used a very slow SSD. Samsung made up for that decision but finally using one of its own SSDs, and combined with the faster Core i7 processor it results in a...

The Samsung Series 9 2012 is a great laptop with a stunning design. It’s not always easy to see how things really “feel” in the real world when all you have are photos and videos, and Samsung should do anything it can to put these in people’s...

Video Review: Samsung's new 13 inch Series 9 notebook promises both portability and power with an LED display, Intel Core i5 processor, 4 GB or RAM and measures only a half an inch thick. Michael Kosta and Matt Mira take a closer look at the $1,300...

The Samsung Serie 9 900X3C-A04DE packed with fresh hardware has left a good impression here. We were pleased by the case, the matte PLS display with a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels is just about perfect, the input devices are well designed and you...

The problem we've had with Intel's Ultrabook initiative is one of consistency. We've seen Ultrabooks we'd be happy to carry around, and others that bore more bulk than we expected. Because those more rotund models employed larger displays, though, they...

The Samsung Series 9 is the most well-rounded Ultrabook we've reviewed to date. It gets almost everything right – it even has decent speakers. The 1600×900 PLS display has fantastic picture quality with unlimited viewing angles and an anti-glare coating...

Samsung's 13.3″ Series 9 is a great laptop. It's got strong features, excellent build quality, and performs well, with the exception of its speakers, which need a bit more bass. According to Samsung Australia's website, it retails for AU$1,599, which we...

Intel might have written the Ultrabook spec, but Samsung is making it sing. For the latest case in point, look no further than the Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook , a thin, lightweight powerhouse that's about as stylish and feature-rich as an ultraportable...

Samsung has been experiencing nothing but success in the portable market for a while now. Truth be told, this applies to tablets and mobile phones much more than portable computers, but things are starting to balance out, it seems. We’ve been seeing...

If you're after an ultraportable laptop then this should surely be on your shortlist. However, whether or not it wins you over is whether you can work past the sometimes irritating trackpad, the smudge attracting aluminum chassis and the rather large...

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 Series 9: Now This Is an Ultrabook [REVIEW]Too many so-called Ultrabooks render the label nearly meaningless. The thrust of the idea is a category of extremely thin and light laptops that also perform well. However, Intel owns the trademark,...

AND NOW THERE ARE TWO] by terry on 7 August 2012 Back in May we confessed to buying a MacBook Pro 13” laptop because we couldn’t find a Windows-running portable with a decent screen suitable for viewing and editing photos and videos. Well, now we...

As far as Ultrabooks go, the Samsung Series 9 has got to be right up there near the top of the heap, as it looks good, feels solid and most importantly, has a very impressive high-resolution screen. Too many notebooks these days skimp on the quality...

Samsung can be proud of its new Series 9. The company has optimised the space available without sacrificing sturdiness or performance. We were pleased to see that the screen also got an upgrade and provides high-quality images....

If you're looking for a beautifully built, extremely thin, light, and portable ultrabook, the Samsung Series 9 rises above the competition. It may lack a few top-end features, but it's a perfect ultraportable for those who can afford...

Rather than condemning the 900X to the dark quarters of your bag, you'll gladly brace it under your arm with the Samsung logo pointing outwards. It's not a powerhouse computer—nor was it meant to be—but it will browse the web, handle multimedia and...

Design There's something undeniably beautiful about Samsung's Series 9 (900X). It's not that it's just thin; I've reviewed many ultrabooks where the adjective has merited use, but whereas ultrabooks remain wide and tall, the 900X doesn't. Samsung has...
