Samsung Series 9 has earned quite a lot of fame. Many say that it is the best windows ultrabook laptop out there. The latest models in the series 9 ‘series’, NP900X4C-A01UK and NP900X4C-A04DE feature 15 inch display, a category unoccupied by Apple notebooks since it does not offer a 15 inch Macbook Air (yet). Both of the new ultrabooks feature exactly the same specs.
This Samsung ultrabook offers amazing anti-glare display and all aluminum chassis along with the speedy Intel Core i5 3317U processor and amazing pixel packed display make it a very useable business laptop. If you need a light and sleek notebook with an amazing 15 inch screen, you should definitely have NP900X4C-A01UK (or NP900X4C-A04DE, depending upon your country) on your short list.
Folks at notebookcheck were able to get do a review of the unit and they adore its aluminum unibody construction and overall look and feel. The keyboard is backlit and has good key feedback. While its 1600 x 900 pixel screen is excellent for working on documents, its usability is shortened by its low contrast levels and narrow viewing angles.
Even though the unit comes with mini HDMI port, no adapters are included in the box. Good alternatives include Asus UX32VD R4002V (13.3 inch screen, 1920 x 1080 resolution) and Acer M5 ultrabook (14 inch screen, 1366 x 768 resolution).
