Alright, I wanted to be the first one to review this specific version of the Samsung S9 so here I am. First off, I'd like to say i'm a college student that was in need of a solid Laptop, as i'm majoring in Graphic Design next year. I researched this product endlessly before I bought it, and after working with it for some time I wanted to write a more full review than from what I've seen.

My Experience: I'm 20 and have been using a PC my whole life, I was glad to see an Ultraportable Windows computer on the market. I am extremely skilled with W7, and have no biases against the Mac OS X having used it as well. My main reasoning behind my decision by choosing the SS9 over the MBA (Macbook Air) is my skill with W7. If you are a dedicated Mac user I wouldn't bother reading my review at all, buy the MBA V2 (second generation). Whereas the SS9 seriously out-specs the MBA V1.

The Design: To kick my review off I'm going to get into the design first. Destruction, this Laptop destroys all other PC's design in a single look, but this isn't anything new. The duralumin is clearly strong, lightweight, and clean. I've read complaints about it being a fingerprint magnet, however, I haven't had any issue with fingerprints. Personally, I don't have a lot of oil off my hands and am generally a clean person, I'm not sure if this is the issue constituting that argument. And even if you do have this issue the laptop is black, not much shows up, and if it does it's an easy clean due to the material. One of the things that makes this laptop for me, ontop of the matte screen, is the ability to hide the ports on the side. Not only does it increase portability and look cool, it protects your ports from damage and dust.

I was shopping for new laptop and decided that I want one with SSD - much faster, lighter, quieter and consumes less power. The choices were: ss9 and MacBook Air. After reading all negative reviews about the horrible WiFi issue with the ss9, and also some display flickering, I chose the Mac - beautiful HW, but took me a couple days to realize that I'm not a Mac OS person.
So I ordered the SS9, despite all negative reviews. It holds its ground really well against the MBAir, and even aesthetically looks better, except for the surfaces - fingerprints stains all over. However, the WiFi issue was still there: ~1/10 of other laptop's bandwidth test in downloading speed, and terrible reception. I was sure in my gut that they simply used poor quality antenna, because the Intel WiFi adapter is top notch...

To resolve the WiFi issue: go to Samsung website and download under "Drivers" tab WLAN_Intel_64bit_14.1.1.3 - COMPLETELY RESOLVES THE WIFI ISSUE

To resolve the annoying auto dimming of the display: press Fn+F1 and uncheck "Adaptive brightness"

One more issue to be aware of: to replace the battery you'll have to ship the laptop to one of their service locations (I know of one in Buena Park, CA and another one in TX). The replacement takes 5-10 biz days + the shipping. Doing it on your own voids Samsung's 3yr warranty. This really sucks due to 1)the long time w/o your favorite tool, and 2) you'll have to remove all sensitive info from the computer, including your cookies, browsing history and saved passwords, and then put it all back. I wish they had a batch file to perform all that for you.

My job supposes a lot of mobility. Have few offices to visit regularly, sometimes have to work virtually anywhere (outside of the Town, in my car, in a plane etc.) At the same time I need my work device to be able to run graphical and sound software (which might be quite demanding in terms of performance). I have to say Series 9 totally handles my every need. Here's the list of pros that in my opinion make this laptop the best of ultrathin mobile laptops at the moment:

* Incredibly fast boot: it boots whithin 3 seconds if in sleep mode, and less than 15 seconds if shut down allowing to start working immediately.
* Lightweight, slim and slick. Can carry it wherever I go. I'm not really the guy loving to show off with my stuff but no matter whether I want it or not, it does attract other's attention.
* Really bright screen: my previous laptop (ASUS M50VM) had a real dim display and it was glossy making it a real pain in the ass when I tried to work outside, uptown, breathing fresh air. The display at S9 is bloody awesome, you can work with sun shining right into it and still be able to see everything.
* Powerful and blazing fast: can run graphical software (like Photoshop or Flash), sound software (like Audition or FL Studio) 2d and 3d games, and because of SSD and USB 3.0 file management (copying/pasting internal/external) is really fast.
* Quiet. In some reviews before buying I read that it makes a lot of noise. It's not true: even if I put my ear right to it I hardly can hear the sound of coolers.
* Backlit keyboard. Too late, Apple.
* It's not MacBook Air: explains itself.

Now despite all pros there still are few cons (which is normal), and if these are cruical for you, you should consider another laptop.

* Really bad touchpad.
