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.

Fast Data Access

Anyone looking at ultrabooks (and yes, despite Samsung distancing themselves from calling it an Ultrabook it is one) for power and ultra performance needs to think again. However I was wanting something good enough to let me write my programs using Eclipse, play back HD video, play audio and stream HD video content from my home NAS for when i was at home. This laptop does all of that with grace.
Windows 8 is a nice addition. Anyone not scared of change will find it easy to adapt to from Windows 7. Although Windows 8 is clearly a tablet OS and this is not a tablet so scrolling in places tends to get quite enthusiastic. But this is no fault of the laptop.
My only real issue was the amount of RAM installed and size of the SSD. I was able to restore much of the SSD by removing the recovery partition - but dont expect to be storing your HD content on this. However, the RAM I had to order more on day two of purchase. 4Gb RAM just inst enough for Win8 - Samsung should realise this fact and pack at least 6Gb. Although at £15 its not expensive and considering the next laptop up in the price bracket isnt significantly better (not when considering price to performance ratio) its a cheap way to get extra memory.

So I have been using this laptop for several weeks and I absolutely love it - apart from the WiFi which I will come to later, despite the downgraded hardware the machine is actually pretty fast. Boot up takes about 2 seconds. I don't do anything graphics intensive on the machine but the laptop handles HD videos with no problem. Battery life is a godsend and if you only browse the internet and use Microsoft Office you will get around 5 hours from it.
For me, this is the first truly portable laptop and I love it. My recommendation is that if money is not an issue then get the NP900X3C otherwise you will be happy to have saved an few hundred pounds.
WiFi Issue and Solution
So this is a problem that I have been having with the WiFi taking a long time to reconnect and constantly dropping to "limited" connection. Updating the driver does not fix the problem. The solution that I finally found is to:
1. Update to the latest driver
2. Go to Device Manager, Expand Network Adapters
3. Right click on "Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235, select Properties
4. Select Advanced tab, go to Preferred Band in the list of options and change value to "Prefer 2.4GHz band".
This should fix the problem. It seems to be a problem with some routers and the technology used in this wireless adapter.
I see some reviews saying the trackpad is dodgy. I had this same problem but then updated the driver using SW Update which comes with the laptop and it works really well now.
Only thing is I would recommend getting an external hard drive as well though if you plan to use this laptop for much more than Office because only about 95 GB of the SSD is usable. Now that I have a 500 GB external hard drive there's nothing more I can really ask for in a laptop.

I thought it's only fair having benefited from many people's reviews over the years to give something back today. Read morePublished on 4 July 2013 by black swan
I appreciate that giving a brand new Ultrabook only two stars won't endear me to anyone, but I honestly wish I'd bought a different machine. Read morePublished on 26 Nov. 2012 by Rosey Lea
