The Samsung Series 9 2nd Gen (SS9) is a beautifully crafted piece of machinery. This system is presented gorgeously straight right out of the box in its packaging and presentation. So far, I have no regrets on my purchase although it is quite a pricey system. Considering many people are familiar with the Macbook Air 13.3" (MBA), I will frequently compare the SS9 for the rest of the review to it. Also, I did not purchase this system through Amazon but through a local Comp USA who was selling the system at $1299.00.

The display is 400 nits of brightness with a matte finish. It can easily be used in any environment whether it be dark in a room or outside on a patio in near direct sunlight. The MBA has a reflective screen with an anti-glare finish that still offers glare. The SS9 also comes with a higher resolution screen at 1600 X 900 compared to the MBA's 1440 X 900. Honestly, higher resolution isn't always better because it becomes more difficult to read text at higher resolutions. The display colors appear natural, bright and vivid. This is the nicest screen I've ever seen on any system. I do prefer this screen over any and that of the MBA.

The sound is loud and crisp with a little bass to it. The MBA has a little more bass, but doesn't go as loud. The sound is great for watching any streaming media and ok for listening to music. It's a way better experience with audio watching movies on the SS9 than the MBA. The sound is seems more directional.

The keys are shallow, square and flat. They're not overally shallow like the Toshiba Portege, but I would say it has an acquired feel to it. Typing is smooth, quick, responsive and natural. Typing on this machine is different than the MBA. The MBA has more curvature and give to the keys.

I love the Samsung Series 9 2012. I upgrade about one laptop a year (out of boredom, not necessity), and this has been one of my favorites. I had the previous 2011 model too. The 2012 is built solid and sexy. It is incredible thin, a smaller footprint then the Macbook Air even. What I love the most is probably the PLS screen... it is matted, great colors and viewing angels, high resolution, and has a tiny bezel - you probably won't find a better screen then this. Images and videos come alive. The latest Samsung SSD inside is incredibly fast. The touchpad works very well for me, one of the best on a PC. The keyboard is a bit shallow, but after some time, I have gotten used to it. Ultraportable laptops aren't for everyone, but if you are looking for one, I would recommend this.

I won't go into the detail that some of the other posters have gone into, but will make this one short. This is the best Windows ultraportable available. It may be the best light notebook period (only Macbook air is close), but I won't ignite a flame war by declaring a winner. If you are into the Apple ecosystem, then get the Air, but if not this second generation Samsung is what you've been waiting for.

The pros: ultrafast boot, good battery life, high resolution and high quality screen, backlit keyboard
The cons: trackpad can be a bit glitchy at times, battery life may be less than advertised, small and nonupgradeable hard drive

The trackpad issue seems to improve with each iteration of the driver (although you have to redownload 100+ MB to upgrade it). The battery is still good enough that I can get light use for a week without plugging it in. Otherwise, the hard drive can be a bit tight, but just put your media on an external drive, USB stick, or SD card and you'll be fine.

If you've been ogling the Macbook Air for a while but wanted a windows pc for whatever reason, get this computer.

I was really excited about this computer but after having it for a few days I realize that it is not worth the premium price and here is why?

1. Better build quality than last years model.
2. Better display, but still not as bright as the ASUS Zenbooks. good viewing angles.
3. Very light for a 13" system.
4. Quick charging.

1. Terrible keyboard, very loud and plasticky keys. Not great for a touch typist and keys don't always register a press.
2. Poor video performance. It has the Intel HD 3000 graphics but still stutters when playing video compared to other computers I have with he same specs.
3. Due to matte screen, text looks fuzzier than with a glossy or semi-gloss display. Even with he 1600x900 resolution. My ASUS UX31 has a much crisper display.
4. Poorly designed SD card slot. You can't fully insert an SD card to leave in he computer s extra storage because it sticks out halfway. If you tried to leave it in it would break off. What were they thinking?
5. Very cheap, plasticky power button.
6. Poor trackpad. Not very precise, even after a driver update. Click areas are very loud. Pinch to zoom is slow.
7. Finger print magnet on this color. The silver is much better but his darker color is not.
8. Poor battery life. You will never get close to the 7 hours that Samsung claims. The best I could get was about 4:30 on % 30 screen brightness and power save mode running WiFi. This battery life is worse than most of the competitor products.
9. Very cheap charging port and power adapter. The tiny pot adapter does not fit tightly in he port and will easily bend or break off if bumped even slightly.
10. Small storage capacity with no option to increase the storage through SD.
