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 I love the fact that it has a modern i3 processor unlike Apple's offering with the 2 years outdated core 2 processor.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.

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.

Three obvious problems.

- As everyone else says, wifi connection is horrible.

- When using Skype, serious noise to the recipient. Disconnecting the power line may help, but not always. (After 5 months, it is getting worse and worse. Disconnecting the power line reduces the noise just a little bit.)

- When the power line is connected without ground connection (earth), you could be electrocuted. Of course I am exaggerating, but I am not kidding. Disconnecting the power line always helps.

I bought this pretty laptop in the US and broght it to Samsung headquarters, a newly built beautiful glass-tower at Gangnam District in Seoul Korea for repair. What did I hear from Samsung headquarters?

- They knew about the wifi issue. They will find a solution.

- They knew about the leaking electricity to the surface of laptop, but they insisted that no one would be killed by such a low voltage. They said that any product with metal outfit would have the same problem. Then, why did they use DURALUMIN from the beginning? Didn't they know that many hotels in the world do not have ground connection?

- The noise issue? It was not worth it.

I visited Samsung three times and let their technicians and CS people feel the leaking electric shock. They tested other laptops in their warehouse and felt the same electric shock. They finally admitted that this product has serious defects and said they would consider a worldwide recall. But they still refused refund because I bought it from Amazon. I came back to the States and found out that it was too late for refund.

I am now stuck with this pretty shocker (literally) waiting for a recall. Then today I found out that Samsung reduced the price substantially. Has Samsung decided to get rid of this product from their sight just as HP did? A desperate step before the worldwide recall?
