Product Description

Designed with mobility in mind, Samsung's durable, ultra premium, lightweight Series 9 laptop (model NP900X1A-A01US) offers mobile professionals and power users a sophisticated laptop equally suited for work and entertainment. Featuring a minimalist look that is both simple and sophisticated, it's highlighted by a dramatic enclosure made of super-strong duralumin. This Series 9 laptop also includes a brilliant 11.6-inch LED display with HD resolution, 64 GB Solid State Drive (SSD), 2 GB of system memory, and built-in 4G WIMAX capabilities (for optional on-the-go wireless connectivity).

Samsung Series 9
Made from durable, lightweight duralumin
(see larger image).

Burn through the hottest new digital media, content creation and advanced 3D gaming with the breakthrough performance of the ultra-low voltage Intel Core i3 UM processor--with 4-way multitasking processor power to work on four tasks simultaneously. The advanced micro-architecture powers smart performance while you get significantly faster performance by harnessing both speed and efficiency by using less energy.

This Series 9 comes pre-installed with the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. You'll also experience new ways to deliver your best work with Office Starter 2010 (learn more below).

Key Features

Duralumin, the New Definition of Lightweight

The Series 9 laptop features the dramatic duralumin enclosure complete with arching curves and remarkable durability. Typically found in advanced aircrafts and offers construction quality, duralumin is twice the strength of aluminum, despite being light in weight--and helps keep the Series 9 laptop under 3 pounds.


The naturally flowing design takes cues from the sleek styling and sophisticated beauty of a premium sports car. The silhouette evokes thoughts of speed and performance with an ultra-thin 0.65 inch profile. Additionally, the naturally flowing arch maximizes the laptop's ergonomic appeal, making it easier to use and a natural fit for the human grip. Elegant from every angle, the Series 9 also includes backlit keyboard, a brilliant LCD display screen and a large multi-touch SuperButton clickpad.

See Vivid Content, Wherever You Go

If you live for the latest HD movies and games, then Samsung's SuperBright screen, with 340nit brightness, will transform your mobile experience. You can enjoy HD movies, games and other favorite media even when viewing in direct sunlight with no annoying reflections.

Powerful Processing

The 11.6-inch Series 9 has a state-of-the-art Intel Core i3 processor with Hyper-Threading Technology. This uses the processor resources more efficiently, enabling multiple threads to run on each core. It will enable better graphics and allow you to run demanding applications, simultaneously.

Power up fast
64 GB Solid State Drive

A 64 GB solid state drive (SSD) provides plenty of storage, lower power consumption and improved performance with less noise and heat output. The chance of losing data is also decreased due to the SDD having no moving parts. And it boots up 60 percent faster than a hard disk drive (HDD). You'll get less power usage, faster data access and higher reliability.

Power Back up in 3 Seconds with Fast Start

You no longer have to shut down your Samsung computer, just close its lid and it goes into a special powerless sleep mode. When you open the lid your computer comes back to life in 3 seconds and you are exactly at the same place as when you shut the lid. Fast Start saves your data and system configurations to your hard drive and PC memory. So, when you power it back on it is just like you left it.

Intuitive navigation
Longer Battery Life and Life Span

The Series 9 delivers mobility and freedom with its power efficient performance and extensive battery life of up to 7 hours. 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.

Intuitive Navigation

Samsung's new multi-touch clickpad is stylish, user-friendly and convenient. It features a glass coating and image sensor, which means no more cursors disappearing or jumping around on the screen. This intelligent multi-touch gesture pad, which is located in the center of the palm rest, features 21 types of gesture support such as pinch, swipe, and rotate, and also has advanced 3D image sensing for intuitive navigation.

The design is very sleek & elegant, sexy even.
Mike Lovelace
Conclusion: It's a great laptop if you want something ultra-light and appealing to the eye but don't need a ton of computing power.
You get an error message at the beginning of install that says 'a required cd/dvd device driver is missing'.

I'm coming to this laptop from an 11" Macbook Air. I'm a PC person at heart but I couldn't resist the MBA's form-factor when it was the only thing on the market. Now that Samsung has produced a legitimate competitor, I jumped at the opportunity to return to a Windows environment. I have spent very little time with the laptop so far so I reserve the right to add to or modify this review as I learn more. There are initially more negatives than positives in my review, but the positives I mention are, for me, very important. The negatives I list are mostly nit-picks.

Here are my initial thoughts:

[*]Size, weight, build quality feels equal to the MBA. The material is certainly different but it feels just as solid and just as sleek. I find the color of the metal more appealing than the bright aluminum.
[*]Matte screen. I don't know why so few companies still offer matte screens. Everyone I hear talk about them prefers them to the glossy ones. This screen is fantastic. Sharp text, good colors, and excellent (best I've ever seen) brightness.
[*]The keyboard and trackpad are comfortable to use. The position of your wrists is always going to be a challenge on a notebook this small. I had gotten used to it on the MBA and feel no difference here. The keyboard backlight is a plus.
[*]Speed. It's not as fast as my desktop, nor should it be. It's fast enough for everything I want to do on it. The SSD helps a great deal and boot time and wake from sleep time is excellent.
[*] USB 3.0 port

[*] No real home, end, page up, and page down keys. I use them a lot and they're functions of the arrows on this keyboard layout.
[*] No two-finger tap to click for right click.

I love this Samsung Series 9 11.6". The matted screen and build quality are superb, possibly the best screen I have ever witness. The keyboard and trackpad are very easy to use, and the backlight keyboard is a nice touch. I love the fact that it has a modern i3 processor unlike Apple's offering with the 2 years outdated core 2 processor. Restart/reboot/wake-up times are almost instant. For normal use, ie internet and word processing, I have been getting almost 6 hours of battery usage. Wireless speeds have been fast, too bad it doesn't have 5Ghz, only 2.4ghz (planning to upgrade this myself). The fast SSD hard drive could also be larger, but fortunately Samsung placed the recovery on a DVD and not the drive. Highly recommend this laptop if you have the money.

Update 5/28/11

Random notes

- With stock Broadcom wifi card, I did not notice any wifi problems as discused with some 13.3". On, I get comparable speeds as my other laptops, maxing the internet speeds of my wifi connection. No drops, so this is a non-issue.

- Removing the base is easy, remove the 8 screws under the 8 rubber stubs. Carefully pry open. I start from the area between the screen, easiest for me.

- Upgrading to wifi Intel 6230 is easy, just swap. Removed all wifi/bluetooth drivers, then install the wifi and bluetooth drivers from Intel for Windows 7 64-bt. Although the device manager shows 3 bluetooth yellow ticks, both wifi and bluetooth work fine without any issues. Speed on 5Ghz is faster than 2.4ghz, insanly fast.


- Swapping to 128GB SSD is easy too,

- As far as I can tell, memory is not upgradable. There are no memory slots visible.

-- update 3/5/2012 --

I had this same error popping up on a new computer I purchased (dell xps 13 ultrabook), and it seemed strange that Windows 7 would not install. It turns out if you plug an external cd/dvd drive into a usb 3.0 port it wont work; this is because Windows 7 and older os's do not ship with a usb 3.0 driver. So while the drive does work it doesnt work sufficiently to install Windows. So while the error says it cant find the cd/dvd drive its more the problem that the usb port the drive is plugged into isnt fully supported with a driver. MS likely will fix this with Windows 8. The solution is to simply plug your cd/dvd drive into the other usb port which is a usb 2.0 port and it works fine! So apologies to samsung for the harsh criticism regarding the missing driver; however I still feel bloatware should not be included on these machines when you are paying that much upfront.

I'm coming from a macbook air 11.6 model using Windows under bootcamp. This series 9 is a little thicker in the front than the macbook air, but the back portion of the laptops are the same size. The backlit keys and the feel of the keys on this machine are excellent! The core i3 is blazing fast and boots up instantly - under 7 seconds, whereas windows boots up in about 35 seconds on the macbook air (bootcamp) - attributed likely to poor drivers by apple. The screen quality is excellent, bright display and vivid colors. The touchpad is very responsive and is actually one of the best multitouch touchpads I've used on any Windows laptop - being able to support gestures perfectly that I havent found on other windows laptops.
