4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly perfect, 10 Dec. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 9 NP900X3C 13.3 inch Ultrabook (Intel Core i5 3317UM 1.7GHz, 4Gb RAM, 128Gb SSD, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
For many years I've used Acers and moved accross an SSD drive (then installed drivers)to get going quickly without ghosting across and I have loads of power supplies and accessories that made me hesitate buying the Series 9, but it had such good reviews and looked so cool I couldnt resist, so here's the lowdown...
Looks 10/10
Its a beauty and everyone who sees it loves it.
Size 10/10
At 1.1kg and waffer thin it's as small as it gets, and tucks into any case.
Power 8/10
Core i5 power and moderate graphics, perfect for everything except intense full graphics gaming and video editing
Startup 8/10
Very fast but fiddly with Samsungs own software to get the startup/sleep/hibernate all working properly (see below), although their software is good.
Screen 10/10
Matt screen, very bright, perfect outdoors, no reflections, huge viewing angles, autobrightness a bit of a law unto itself and very high resolution (small writing), so if you're over 40 try before you buy, or set the text size in windows to 125%/150%. Found loads of useful settings in outlook to boost the text size in the 2010 version.
Battery 6/10
Not as long lasting as my last Acer, hmmm... but the charger is tiny so what the heck, take the charger.
Keyboard and pad - 8/10 sensitive and the no button approach takes some getting used to but good overall and backlit of course
Upgrades - 9/10 good due to normal screws for the underside (vs Apple's special ones) - the battery can be replaced to. Sata drive which screwed up my plan to move the SSD from the Acer but my fault for not checking.
Sound 9/10 very good for such a small lappie.
Ports 6/10 obviuosly limited and micro versions of hdmi, vga and ethernet so if you present a lot then order the vga adapter from samsung (tried the cheap no name versions but mainly useless.

Brand new machine setup no probelm, but be careful ghosting accross as getting the function keys working and the drivers up and running was a headache, but got there in the end. For 850 quid plus a free Galaxy tab 2, it must be a bargain.

Great review. Thank you. Have you struggled with only 128GB of space on the hard drive?

Also is it a Galaxy Tab 2 or an original Galaxy Tab? Can't see it on the website.
