What You Need To Know

  • The new 13-inch Samsung Series 9 Notebook shares a similar unibody aluminum construction as the MacBook Air.
  • The footprint is 12.3" by 8.6" and weighs only 2.6 pounds, measuring 0.5" thick.
  • The new design also doesn't have the hard edge that used to stick out, which we like.
  • The screen is very good with a resolution of 1600x900 and a matte finish, which a lot of people prefer.
  • There is also really good color saturation and top-notch brightness with great viewing angles.
  • This is one of the best ultrabook screens we've seen.

  • The trackpad has a great feel and is fairly responsive with a nice, tactile feedback.
  • We did have problems towards the top of the trackpad.
  • The keyboard is also very responsive, which is a nice change of pace for a lot of ultrabooks.
  • The keys are nicely backlit with a subtle blue light.
  • There are only two USB ports (one 3.0 and one 2.0), along with a SD card slot and microports for VGA and Ethernet.
  • The number of ports isn't as extensive as most and having to use dongles is an added hassle.
  • The performance was pretty good with third generation Intel i5 or i7 processors and 4 GB of RAM.
  • I also comes with Windows Home Edition but that can be upgraded to Professional for another $100.
  • If you're looking to play games, this notebook can handle it to a certain extent.
  • This has Intel integrated 4000 graphics, so it will certainly be useable.
