Ultrabook Envy: Samsung Series 9 NP900X4C 15″

Even though I am a Mac user these days, my interest in computers and career began with PCs.  Perhaps that is why I still am drawn to ultrabook PCs and so keep looking for a PC laptop that could work for me daily.

The [amazon_link id=”B0082PZ1JU” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Samsung Series 9[/amazon_link] 15″ has caught my eye.  Unlike too many PC laptop clones, it actually looks and feels well constructed.

Although the series 9 barely weighs much at 3.63 pounds and is 0.58 inches thin, the hardware inside Samsung NP900X4C isn’t a joke.

There are three different models available in the US, all 15″:

  • the entry level A01US
  • mid-range A02US
  • and top-of-the-line A03US

 Both Samsung [amazon_link id=”B0083S3NC8″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]NP900X4C-A01US[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”B0082PZ1DQ” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]NP900X4C-A02US[/amazon_link] come loaded with:

  • Intel 1.7 GHz Core i5-3317U Processor
  • 8 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 128 GB Solid-State Hard Drive
  • 15.0-Inch Screen
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Samsung NP900X4C-A03US comes loaded with:

  • Intel 1.9 GHz Core i7-3517U Processor
  • 8 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 256 GB Solid-State Hard Drive
  • 15-Inch Screen
  • Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)

The computer is Not without flaws

  • It has no mini display port video output
  • 1600 x 900 resolution is not the best out there

I hope I will be unboxing one soon.

Good luck in your Ultrabook shopping!
