Samsung 900X3A notebook
Top customer reviews
Very lightweight and can feel a little loose and almost floppy when picking up one handed.
Ive never had any issues with it and is the best laptop ive used - keyboard layout is good, never use another key by mistake like on some others.
Could perhaps do with a larger hard drive.
Unfortunately, while that means you get a stylish machine and a reasonable warranty, you are paying over the odds compared to the likes of Acer and MSI. So the question is, is it worth it?
Well it depends. Buying a laptop from a high end brand is a lot like buying insurance, you expect a better quality of service if something goes wrong. And Samsung won't disappoint, I've never had a problem getting something replaced or returned with them, whereas I have waited ages for Acer to sort out a faulty machine (althought they are getting better.)
That aside, the other reason for buying a Samsung is they really know how to style. The picture on here really doesn't do the 900X3A justice. Apart from being obscenely thin, the 900X3A has a glossy finish and bits of chrome making it look almost futuristic and absolutely stunning.
Of course the other reason this is so expensive is because it falls into the ultra portable range of notebooks, with a 13.3" screen and weighing only 1.3Kg. The LED screen has a matte finish so it performs really well in normal light and reflects a lot less than standard screens, great for viewing in HD (resolution is 1366 x 768).
It has a SSD (solid state drive) hard drive, which are generally lower in capacity than standard hard drives but have the benefit of being more stable if suffering an impact, so you're less likely to lose your data if the tiny glossy machine shoots out of your hands. Also, they consume less power so you get a decent amount of battery life out of it.
Overall this a stunning offering from Samsung, with a decent spec although focusing on high quality components rather than big beefy specs. It certainly won't be underpowered for the target user, the business person on the go who's carrying it around with them and needs to access the internet, show presentations and write documents etc. A nice machine, but not for the average user unless you have cash to burn.
