Product Description

Product Description

Thinnest and Most Compact*

The Samsung Series 9 is so easy to carry - and so unique - you won't want to be without it. It’s uniformly flat and only 0.5 inch (12.9 mm) deep thanks to Samsung's engineering craftsmanship. Its super-slim components, like the LCD panel, fan and memory, are tailor-made just for the Series 9. And an innovative single shell body enables them to be seamlessly and precisely built into the frame.

*Compared to 13" laptops of major manufacturers, as of March 2012

Never Before Seen Design

Complement your own sense of style with an exclusive premium look unlike any other and the refined aerodynamic design of the Samsung Series 9. Its sleek, 100% aluminium body has been sand-blasted to achieve an elegant matt finish. And it’s accentuated by a sophisticated Mineral Ash Black colour and beautifully crafted features.

Visually Richer, Instantly Faster

Add more excitement into your life with the Samsung Series 9, featuring the new 3rd generation Intel Core processor.* Enjoy speedy and dramatic performance gains, including 10~15% more efficient CPU processing, plus 2x faster media processing and 3D rendering. So everything you love to do, like watching HD movies, editing contents or creating powerful presentation, is quicker, crisper and more life-like.

*Factory option

Fastest Booting

Say goodbye to wasted time and stress with a blazingly fast performance. With Samsung Fast Solutions, the Series 9 boasts the world's fastest boot-up time in just 8.4 seconds*. So you’ll never left waiting around when you need to get things done.

Fast Start

You can work and play even more efficiently with an "instant on". Fast Start wakes your notebook from sleep in 1.4 seconds*. This innovative hybrid sleep mode combines the fast start-up of sleep with the stability of hibernation.

Fast Data Access

Get the information you need – when you need it! A Solid State Drive (SSD) provides significantly faster start up and data access times compared to a HDD. And with no moving parts it's less prone to errors and damage.

*Speed will vary depending on the CPU and SSD configurations, applications used and wireless settings.

HD+ Display

You no longer have to struggle to see everything on the screen. A HD+ high resolution display gives you much more viewing area and images and text are incredibly sharp. So you can multi-task and get things done with ease and enjoy every little detail of your favourite pictures and films.

SuperBright Plus Screen

Every photo, video, website and document looks stunning with the SuperBright Plus screen with 400 nit brightness. It's 2x brighter* and also anti-reflective, so you can see everything clearly even outdoors in the sunshine. Plus its wide 170º viewing angle means that you see what’s on the screen from almost anywhere.

*Compared to a 200 nit screen

Auto-Sensing Screen & Keyboard

With the Samsung Series 9 it's easy to get things done – night and day. Its screen and backlit keyboard automatically adjust to the light conditions using an auto-sensor. So they always provide the optimum brightness for maximum comfort and ease of use, even in particularly dark or bright environments.

Superior Multi-Touch Clickpad

You can enjoy better control and fewer accidental palm movements using a large multi-touch clickpad. With a glass coating and image sensor it provides a stylish and convenient way to use your notebook. It supports various gestures (such as pinch, swipe, and rotate) with advanced 3D image sensing for sophisticated and intuitive navigation.

Easy One-Click Control

Setting-up your notebook has never been easier. Bypass the Control Panel and simply take control of your notebook and optimise performance with Samsung’s Easy Settings. It provides one-click execution using keyboard shortcuts and minimal steps to adjust simple functions. It also unifies Samsung’s utility software, so your notebook will start-up and run faster.

Having owned the one year old Samsung 900X3A I upgraded to this model. There are some significant improvements mainly in the display and graphics card. The colours look a lot brighter and more accurate. The resolution has been increased to 1600 x 900, meaning you need good eyes or reading glasses. The processor is faster. The matt non-reflective screen is superb. The X3C is also slightly smaller (but with the same screen size) and even lighter than the X3A.

Appearance wise the interior and exterior are now entirely a matt powdered-grey finish, far more elegant than the X3A.

However I am having trouble with the wi-fi card (Intel centrino 6235) which is a new card compared to the Broadcom card on the 900X3A. I find it does not hold the wi-fi connection when connected to some 'n' routers when configured on the 'dual channel' setting (i.e. 20/40 MHz) at 300 mbs. The connection drops after just a few minutes.
But, curiously, it does work on dual channel with some routers.
It does work consistently when it (or the dual channel router) is configured to single channel (i.e. 20 MHz) at 144mbs.

Samsung tech support are currently not able to address this issue. So, for now I am using it set on 'single' channel until a solution is forthcoming.

I'd like to know if other owners of this product have experienced this issue, although if you have either the notebook's wifi card or the router configured to single channel you wouldn't know there was an issue.

Were it not for this I would give it 5 stars, and may yet if the wi-fi card issue is resolved.

I upgraded to this from a ThinkPad Edge which had been struggling to keep up with my demands, and I honestly think it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm a big ThinkPad fan and really wanted an Utrabook, but the X1 Carbon simply didn't seem to be delivering, especially for the prices they're asking.

The NP900X3C on the other hand is near perfect.

The screen is easily the best I've ever seen on a laptop. Great viewing angles, no glare, fantastic deep blacks and bright whites. I think 1600x900 is perfect for this size screen. It's high enough for me to code in Eclipse without difficulty, something which I really can't do on a lower resolution screen.

The keyboard is good, it's not fantastic, but I have absolutely no issue typing for long periods of time; coding isn't an issue either. There's a little bit of response in the keys, just enough to make it comfortable, however it's not the best typing experience on a laptop ever. One issue I do have with the keybaord is the tab key. It feels just a bit too "clicky". There's something not quite right about it - maybe it's the noise it makes, but it feels slightly different from all the other keys.

The keyboard backlight is really nice. It's not bright, and you'll actually question if it's on or not, however it's just bright enough so that you can see what's written on the keys when it's dark and no more. It's not bright enough to distract, and it does the job well. I think it's a really nice touch.

The touchoad is a bit of an odd one. It's not bad by any stretch, and actually using it to move the cursor and scroll is really nice, however clicking is a tiny bit stiff. I find myself making a lot of mistakes.

Got it just today, and it looks awesome!
Delivery and packaging: There was a bit of an issue with Home Delivery Network (HDNL)/Yodel, as their tracking said that the package was delivered yesterday. And I hadn't received it, nor was any card left for me, so I had no idea who had the package! But a phone call to Amazon customer service quickly solved it, so good job, Amazon! The product is really securely packed.

Features: Other than the features mentioned on the product page, you get a small connector for the ethernet cable. I bought a neoprene case for this from Amazon separately (iGadgitz Red/Black Reversible Neoprene Sleeve Case Cover for Apple MacBook Air & Pro 13.3" 13" (Models from 2006 +)), which fits this ultrabook nicely. Sound is not bad, for a laptop. Hard disk space is only ~90 GB (the rest probably is taken by a recovery partition), and of this, there is a usable space of only about 60 GB. The laptop comes pre-installed with MS Office Starter (with MS Word starter and Excel starter) which is not all that bad, IMO. Pre-installed Samsung software includes the Software Launcher which seems nifty, at first glance. Start-up times are fast, and recovery from sleep is 1-2 sec. Keyboard is backlit, which is really handy. The touchpad is really responsive and gesture-enabled. Mini HDMI port, but no VGA port.
It's a bit odd though, that the recovery software is on a CD, when this ultrabook has no CD drive!
Looks: really thin! Haven't seen it next to a Macbook Air, but looks comparable in dimensions. Looks sturdy and strong. Really light-weight, weighing at about 1.1 Kg.

Overall, I am really happy with the product.
Other accessories you may need:
1. A portable hard disk, because you will quickly run out of space on the SSD
2. Case (mentioned above)
