Solid State Drive to Start Even Faster

It boots up 60 percent faster than a hard disk drive (HDD) and you'll use less power with faster data access. Fast Start Technology saves your data and system configurations to your hard drive and PC memory, so in an instant you can power back on right where you left off.

Connectivity without Compromise

The power of networking is important, but with the new Series 9 it's all about connections.

The Series 9 delivers mobility and freedom with its power efficient performance and extensive battery life of up to 10 hours on this 15-inch model. Its advanced lithium-polymer battery and Samsung's innovation PowerPlus charging technology make the battery lifespan last up to three times longer than the typical notebook battery so you can keep going, without worrying how much battery life is left.

With Intel Wireless Display (WiDi), you can sit back and experience your favorite videos, photos, movies, online TV shows, and more--all with great image clarity up to 1080p.

Simply connect an optional adapter for Intel Wireless Display (such as the Netgear Push2TV PTV2000 and Belkin ScreenCast adapters) to your TV, follow a few simple steps, and you're off and running. Set it up once, and sharing your screen is as easy as pushing a button.

I received this laptop as a gift from the Microsoft Intern Signature 2012 event. It was a close call since I was about to buy a new ultrabook and wasn't really even considering this one. I had been really hyped up on the new Asus Zenbook UX32VD, which is i7 and discrete graphics with a price tag a slight cheaper than this one.

But when I saw the design and form factor of this Samsung, I guess my initial impression was to give it a shot before maybe trying to sell it in for the Asus.


* Display is extremely bright and vivid, even better than the Asus LED back-lit monitor that I have. I seriously just use it at half brightness because it is THAT bright.

* FAST BOOT. I boot from cold at around 5 SECONDS. And less than 1 SECOND from sleep. THAT BLEW MY MIND. This is under the new Windows 8 though, which is supposed to be much faster than Windows 7.

* EXTREMELY THIN, it is the thinnest and coolest looking laptop arguably out there. It is made of PURE aluminum and it is freezing cold to the touch :D.
The brush aluminum is very nice, and it truly feels like it was carved out from a solid block of metal.

* Gaming is OK. I could play SCII on native resolution, with all texture set on low. This laptop is not made for gaming, so if you are planning to do so, expect the fan to run very loudly, and the heating to increase significantly.

* During regular use, it stays very cool and SILENT LIKE A NINJA.

* Battery life is powerful, I can easily get 6+ hours for regular activities (web, reading, word). This is considering that the brightness is so high.

* Versatile power saving controls (even has light sensitive controlled back-light). You can also control whether the fan turns on or not.

I bought one of these last week and have been using it pretty heavily ever since. I was looking at buying a regular Notebook computer because I do a lot of video editing (not Steven Spielberg stuff, but simple instructional videos for YouTube) and wanted something that would do the trick as well as my old desktop pc.

However after looking at the specs and talking to a few IT buddies they convinced me that this Ultrabook would be just as good only way more portable. And they were right. The 15 inch screen is certainly big enough for my purposes and after testing it with my favorite processing power hungry programs (Camtasia and Dragon Naturally Speaking) it didn't miss a beat.

So now I have a sleek, awesome looking Ultrabook that does everything I need and handles my programs with ease. I thought it was going to be a pain in the butt to keep storing things on external hard drives but have found the process of saving working files to and from my 1TB external drive via USB 3.0 to be much better than I expected. My old desktop didn't have USB3.0 so I was used to much slower file transfer times (I love upgrading to newer technology and being pleasantly surprised).

All in all the Samsung series 9 looks amazing, like all Ultrabooks is light and portable, and from the point of view of a user who doesn't do anything too crazy on it besides surfing the web, watching the odd movie, writing articles for my site (using voice recognition software mostly), and editing a few HD videos for YouTube channel, I have found it to be an excellent purchase.

Bought the latest version of the Series 9 Samsung series 9 15" i7 processor model from Australia (AU). I was planning on buying a MacBook Air but when I went to the shop I found this Samsung laptop that had just landed in AU. Looked great and the shop keeper raved on about it, so I decided to buy it. What was not to like, 15" screen, 8Gb of RAM, i7 Processor.. seemed too good to be true and yes it was.

I found the laptop very fast locally when doing things, but as soon as you start using the WiFi it becomes extremely slow. I am a network guy by profession and have built some very large WiFi and LAN/WAN networks for some very large corporates, therefore I know what I am talking about. I tweaked all the settings on the laptop, tried to find the latest driver for the Intel Centrino but here was none. Tweaked my Apple Airport Extreme settings and still no luck, I then also took the laptop to work and also tried with another WiFi router but still no luck. The issue was that I always got a very good signal, but the traffic throughput was extremely slow. I even compared the throughput with a very old HP Laptop running only 802.11b and it was still a lot faster then the Samsung.

Googled the issue after mucking around for two weeks on this and then found that others were having the same issue too and the only way to resolve it is by connecting up an external WiFi dongle. This is not what I wanted, therefore called Samsung for a refund but they just wanted to fix the laptop, extremely frustrated I sold the laptop on e-bay and recovered my outlay. I have now bough another brand laptop and am extremely happy.

BTW. I called up the shop from where I bought the Laptop and they said that they have had several other complaints about the same issue..
