****UPDATE 8/20/2013****
My job role has changed a bit in the past year and I'm traveling and doing presentations to potential clients. The thinness of the Series 9 is awesome for traveling, as is the battery life, but I decided to ditch the dreary no-frills Samsung and for an Acer Aspire R7. I'll put up a review of that whenever (if) it becomes available from Amazon.


I'm replacing my 2009 model Dell Studio XPS 1640 that died on me with a bad motherboard hard drive connector :/

I'm a consultant for several clients in San Diego and I use my laptop for EVERYTHING, so not having one meant work stoppage for several days and I needed a new one QUICK. I went to best buy, frys electronics and for whatever reason, costco. I needed to try out every model I could to make a quick, but informed decision.

I went with the Samsung Series 9, mostly because the Series 7 they had at Best Buy caught my eye and nothing else I got my hands on really compared.

The Good:
Battery Life - The battery isn't nearly broken in yet, I have been downloading and installing software like crazy, and I'm getting about 7 hours with brightness set to the middle setting. (See below). I'm used to about 1 hour and 45 minutes with the XPS, so 7 hours is astonishing, and when the battery is broken in I'm sure it will be a few hours longer.

Matte screen & brightness - I can actually use this thing outside! It was absolutely impossible using my XPS outside because of the gloss screen and good-for-indoors brightness. OK so I'm not joking when I say this thing is bright. On full brightness it's actually somewhat painful to look at it if you're in a dark room.

First of all, I want to address some common criticisms of the 15 inch Series 9 (NP900X4C-A01US) in other reviews:

Screen. Several have said the screen is "horrible" with very poor contrast and limited viewing angles. Perhaps Samsung has made some improvements but mine is just fine even with the out-of-the-box default settings. Yes it's sensitive to viewing angle in the vertical direction but you just adjust the angle of the screen and it looks quite good. Pictures, movies, and any combination of text and background colors I've yet seen all look reasonably good. The screen is better, overall, than a few Dells I have. Like any mat (vs glossy) screen the blacks are not as black but I prefer that over lots of annoying glare and reflections.

Touchpad. Some have said the touchpad is a problem. Again, I've had no issues with mine. The cursor doesn't randomly jump around, I didn't have to turn off the gestures or upgrade the driver, and it generally does what I want it to do. Again, it works vastly better than the multi-touch pad in my newest Dell. It's made by Elan.

WiFi. A few have complained the WiFi performs poorly. Granted I have a great WiFi router, but the Series 9 has equal or better signal strength anywhere in the house compared to my other laptops and devices. It's always 4 or 5 bars.

Upgrade Options. One negative review here complains the SSD can't be upgraded without voiding the warranty. I'm not sure that person is aware that most Ultrabooks, the Macbooks, etc. have the same issue and often use proprietary OEM SSD boards (as the this one does) rather than regular 2.5" drives. Sometimes the SSD is part of the motherboard. Laptops designed to use only an OEM SSD can be made thinner and lighter.

I had the np900x3b (2012 non-ivybridge 13.3" series 9) since it was released and have loved it. Loved everything except the 4gB RAM. Being a Chrome user who likes to have 100s of tabs open, I couldn't do much else other than 'browse' the web.

The np900x4c, while significantly heavier-feeling than its younger brother, is still extremely lightweight and sexy (3.5 pounds).

The 8gB of RAM is user-upgradeable//replaceable, and the 10 hours of battery life is awesome (note: I have not tested it yet. Windows reported that I would have about 6+ hours with a full charge while running High Performance mode with maximum brightness).

ivy-bridge processor
graphics are excellent - it can play Diablo 3 without a problem
micro-HDMI out so you can watch Netflix on your TV with ease
good number of ports (2xUSB 3.0, micro ethernet, 1xUSB 2.0, micro HDMI, SD slot)
excellent build quality (very sturdy duralumin)
15" screen
touchpad worked well out of the box (very impressed with that :)

feels kind of heavy compared to other ultrabooks
the enter key is not the furthest right key (makes it harder to press quickly/easily/at night without a day of getting used to)
128gB SANDISK mSata SSD - still 440 mB/s read/write speeds but not as fast or as high quality as the Samsung SSD found in the np900x3b
SD card sticks out thus cannot be left inside the laptop (which would be nice because you can get a 64gB//128gB SD relatively cheap, effectively doubling the storage capacity of the machine)
