fyi - you must change the power setting via the Control Panel power settings, the Samsung provided Easy Systems Settings does not allow you to change the wifi power setting.
More and more, computer marketing is all about mass market appeal and has moved away from technical specs, but technical specs DO still matter, ESPECIALLY in ultrabooks, which thanks to improved Intel graphics in Ivy Bridge are right on the cusp of being able to play modern games (albeit at lower settings). Nobody cares about paying more for 10-15% extra performance on desktops anymore, but that can make a huge difference in an ultrabook if you suddenly get the urge to use it like a real computer, and is worth a premium IMO. And the specs on this Series 9 model A03 should ensure such a performance advantage over most other ultrabooks on the market.
This model of the Series 9, the NP900X4C-A03US, simply has it all:
* 256GB SSD (most models have either a hybrid SSD/HDD, or only 128GB SSD)
* 8GB RAM (the number of ultrabooks on the market offering options with >4GB is woefully small).
* Decent screen resolution of 1600x900 that's a nice fit for a 15" screen.
* Core i7 CPU
I think most people can grasp the benefits of the first 3 items (which are clearly significant and may be enough to pay extra for just the bigger SSD and RAM alone), but there are significant benefits of the i7-3517U processor that's offered in this model, over the i5-3317U that's offered in the lower-end A01 and A02 models (and most other ultrabooks).
1.7 GHz base clock frequency
2.6 GHz max turbo clock frequency
3 MB cache
1050 MHZ max Gfx clock frequency
1.9 GHz base clock frequency (12% faster)
3.0 GHz max turbo clock frequency (13% faster)
4 MB cache (33% bigger)
1150 MHz max Gfx clock frequency (10% faster)
All of the above, combined with the 8GB RAM, should result in an across-the-board 10-15% performance increase in both processor-intensive apps, as well as graphical-intensive apps (ie, games). And this is all done within the same 17W power envelope, with the same excellent battery life and no battery penalty from using an external graphics chip.
I'm afraid I can't offer any benchmark comparisons as proof (I only bought one computer after all), but I can tell you that there are many reports of Diablo 3 barely being able to run on Intel HD4000 graphics, especially in later acts with lots of background action going on. But I can report that D3 runs great and smooth on this system in both Acts 3 and 4, with medium textures, low shadows, and high physics in the native 1600x900 resolution.
(As a sidebar, I should also mention the good news that my model came with a Samsung SSD, and not the slower SanDisk SSD that was in the 128GB model that I looked at in a retail store. No guarantees if this will always be the case, though).
I'm not going to go into usability aspects, other than to say that our family is very satisfied with the screen, keyboard, trackpad, build, etc. It's a sweet machine. Honestly, if you're concerned about those kinds of things, you'll likely go see and feel a Series 9 model for yourself at a local retail store (any 15" Ivy Bridge model will suffice for evaluating this aspect, of course). That's what we did, we liked it, and we are liking it more every day as we continue using it after about a week.
The downside to this model is that nobody is selling it, and even Amazon lists a 3-5 week wait for shipment. Fortunately, Amazon appears to be under-promising here, as ours shipped in about 1.5 weeks, and arrived a little over 2 weeks after we ordered it.
Bottom line: Don't let the extra money or the extra wait scare you away from the A03 model. This laptop is going to be the workhorse in our household that does everything, from general productivity to homework to surfing to on-the-move mobility to moderate gaming, and on and on. If you're looking to make a similar investment, go for the best and get this laptop.
I bought the Samsung Series 9 to replace a Lenovo T510 (aka "the beast"). I travel a lot and I use the laptop for business when I'm traveling -- Powerpoint, Word, Excel, Lotus Notes, Acrobat, encrypted volumes, projectors and lots of files and directories. I've used the Thinkpad/Microsoft combination forever and it's always been pretty predictable and reliable. Then I saw one of these Series 9's and I had to ask myself: can this thin, light, good lookin' thang replace the beast, and did I want to spend a lot of money to find out?
Well, as it turns out: 1) it can, and 2) it was worth the money. First, I was worried about whether all of the Windows, Office, Notes, Adobe, Verizon Access Manager, itunes, etc stuff would play on the Samsung. All of the software (even Notes!) loaded without a hiccup, and it's operating as well as it did on the Thinkpad. Second, I was worried about a hard drive with "only" 256 GB capacity. After loading all the software, and a 30 GB music library, I still have a little more than 100 GB free on the SSD. And the SSD is fast.
I've had no trouble with the trackpad (although I do kinda miss the Thinkpad "mouse") and the wireless works fine (except I still can't get the "turn your latop into an access point" feature to work). Surprisingly, the speakers, which must be microscopically thin, sound pretty good even at relatively high volume. The display is the same resolution as the Thinkpad, and side-by-side I don't see much difference -- they're both bright and clear with great colors. You need a dongle to connect to a projector that uses a VGA interface. I bought the Samsung dongle and it works. For HDMI, you need an adapter. For wired LAN you need a dongle (it comes with one). It uses a 40W power supply that's about a third the size of the one used by the Thinkpad.
What do I dislike? The Samsung "easy" software update manager isn't anywhere near easy to operate, but it will tell you what drivers etc need to be updated. Other than that the machine didn't come with much bloatware.
Bottom line -- a great Windows business machine that's half an inch thick, weighs three pounds, and looks great. Sorry Steve.
After a few more weeks, I still love the laptop -- no problems and every time I lift my carry-on I appreciate the weight (or lack thereof) of this thing. HOWEVER, I have on four different occasions contacted Samsung technical support. Each web page, chat window, email and telephone call associated with Samsung technical support should be titled, in big red bold letters, "Abandon all hope ye who enter here." It is by far the worst, most unresponsive, least caring, technically challenged "support" organizations I have ever encountered, and I have seen some doozies. And it was not just one interaction -- phone, email, chat -- they're all the same -- totally frustrating and completely unhelpful.
