And you'll enjoy a rich set of new features for a stunning and seamless visual PC experience with no additional hardware.

This Series 9 laptop features one super-speed USB 3.0 port--the latest development in USB data transfer technology. Perfect for transferring and retrieving large files between your PC and an external hard drive or digital camera, USB 3.0 offers the speediest, most efficient way get what you need from external devices. (It also has a standard USB 2.0 port, plus USB 3.0 is backward compatible.)

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

Note: This Samsung laptop does not include an integrated optical disc drive, but you can connect an optional CD/DVD drive via one of its USB ports.

A Display that's Twice as Bright

Form meets function in the Series 9 display screen. It's twice as bright as a standard screen, has an unmatched viewing angle at 170 degrees, and features SuperBright Plus display HD+ technology that transforms your viewing experience with 400-nit brightness so you see brilliant color and images even when viewing in direct sunlight. And with HD+, you can fit more of what you really want on your screen and do less scrolling.

Set Your Laptop to Stun

While striking to look at, the Series 9 laptop also sets a premium performance standard. With startup speeds and an extremely fast resume from sleep, you'll get even more done and it leaves every other PC in the airport lounge or conference room behind.

Solid State Drive to Start Even Faster

The Series 9 features a 128 GB solid state drive (SSD) that offers plenty of storage. And, with no moving parts, your data is more secure. 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 is equipped with a full line of ports for ultimate connectivity--even a full size, masterfully designed SD card slot. And to keep you plugged into what's next, it also features mini Ethernet, HDMI and VGA connectors that are ready and set to go with an adapter dongle.

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 9 hours on this 13-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.

Your Favorite Content on the Big Screen

Stop crowding around a laptop screen and enjoy all of your personal and online content on your big screen by wirelessly connecting your laptop to your TV. 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 considered a wide range of ultrabooks, buying this one b4 I could see it, although I did play with the prior Sandybridge version. My biggest hesitations were twofold, based on both on-line reviews of the predecessor and my hands-on playing: 1) so thin that keyboard not great, and 2) poor battery life. I am happy to say that while yes the keyboard is not great for touch-typing, it is largely true you get used to it. It's not nearly as good as my old Lenovo X series, I do still make more typing mistakes, but I think probably just below par for most ultrabooks. On battery life, I am very happy to say it's fine, much better than the predecessor it seems. I can get a good 5+ hours of it doing regular Microsoft Office work and wifi surfing. I have not tested it playing videos though, as I just use my laptop for that.

Other pros: you likely heard the screen is very bright and clear, and it's true. It's also matte, which I prefer. And yes it's just about the thinnest and lightest ultrabook (maybe Toshiba technically beats Series 9 here?). Lastly, I didn't place much importance on looks when choosing, but after I unpacked it, I realised how really gorgeous it is!

Other cons: The need for proprietary ports puts it behind say the HP. I decided that as I almost always use wifi, I can just leave the extra dongles in my travel bag (e.g., VGA dongle to present to clients), so not a big negative to me. Backlighting is only visible in totally dark rooms, not dim rooms, unlike Macbook air or some other ultrabooks. And yes the 128G version seems to largely (or only) come with the Sandisk SSD, which is slower than the competitors.

Just got this ultrabook and so far I am impressed.

Pros:
Fast and efficient Ivy bridge processor 5/5 stars (latest and greatest CPU)
Aesthetically pleasing 5/5 stars (which i could give more stars here)
Extremely thin and light (lightest and thinnest laptop I have seen, including 13.3 inch new Macbook Air) 5/5 stars
Windows 7 PRO 64-bit standard (difference between A01 and A02) 5/5 stars
Pretty quick charging (~1 hour from close to no charge to almost full) 4.5/5 stars
Screen is BEAUTIFUL (1600x900 is really amazing to see in person) and matte screen works well. 5/5 stars
Backlit KEYBOARD YES!!! 5/5 stars

Cons:
Touchpad is not the greatest and takes a little getting used to. I'd give it 3.5/5 stars
SSD - Be aware the SSD in this model is the Sandisk U100 128GB. This is a slow SSD, but still loads better than a HDD in terms of performance. 3/5 stars
4GB soldered RAM to the motherboard; non-upgradeable. N/A stars

Ports:
1x USB 3.0
1x USB 2.0
Headphone jack
Displayport
MicroHDMI
mini LAN port(requires included adapter)

So far, in my limited time with this ultrabook, it is indeed among the best I have seen (I checked out UX31A DB51 as well). The good news is that the SSD is upgradeable. Be aware, this laptop uses a mSATA SSD. My perfect laptop would be this one with a 512GB mSATA and SSD performance rivaling my desktops' Vertex 4. Alas, I will wait for SSD prices to continue to drop like a bag of bricks so I can cheaply upgrade the SSD. Right now it looks like Mushkin makes a good 240GB mSATA drive if you have-to-have the fastest SSD.

pros: light, powerful full computer (not just a netbook), short boot up time (SSD)
cons: sligthly glitchy touchpad, cost

Have had tons of desktops and laptops in past. Needed a new laptop but this time decided to get something more portable as my typical "desktop replacement" laptops in the past were, in retrospect, a hassle to lug around. Read a great cnet laptop review and decided the 13 inch was the way to go (not too small of a screen, not too heavy of a weight). Got it and love it. The screen is not too small, and if i need to i can zoom in on the touchpad. The weight is perfect. It does NOT get too hot for me as another reviewer suggested. The touchpad is a touch glitchy, but just a touch, and not a deal breaker. Reading the reviews before purchase i planned on getting a mouse, but I wont anymore b/c its not the touchpad isnt THAT bad. I gave Samsung an extra look when it came to laptops b/c of my great smartphone experience, (note 2) and I'm glad i did. OnSale seller did great and got it to me earlier than expected.

I am an owner of a MacBook. Therefore, saying that I have "high standards" when it comes to laptop computing almost goes without saying. I bought this laptop because I needed it for law school, specifically since you cannot download OneNote onto Apple and that program ROCKS (Shame on you Microsoft: Apple users can get almost every Office program but OneNote? Really? Please change this policy immediately).

I digress, so let me get right to the details:

Pros:

-The matte non-glare screen is amazing! I have yet to experience any problems.
-Keyboard is wonderful and incredibly functional for typing.
-Touchpad can be configured to be more OR less sensitive!!! THIS IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT for professional students such as myself who find ourselves from time-to-time accidentally "palm-swiping" the Touchpad while typing. The result is that the pointer would move to another part of the page while typing (causing headaches). The Touchpad is visibly embedded into the computer and that reduces the likelihood that this will happen.
-Easily rivals the Macbook Air for lightness.
-Very intuitive controls (esp. on the keyboard).
-Boots incredibly fast.
-Samsung software can easily configure updates/problems on their proprietary PCs and their support staff has been very helpful thus far.
-Design is STUNNING.
-Does not easily get scratched and has a very nice texture.
-The screen hinge feels great and stays stable.
-An ultrabook in every sense of the word.

Cons:

-Battery life can be improved (but maybe at the cost of how ridiculously light it is).
-Screen brightness could be increased (but this may affect the aforementioned battery life).
