Many Samsung 9 series review stated that Samsung has been differentiating itself with a mouthwatering range of ultrabooks recently and the cutting-edge edition of the Ultrabook Samsung Series 9 is no exception, promising an elegant screen, a decent specifications and one of the slimmest profiles out there. Lets start with our samsung series 9 ultrabook review.
The new Ultrabook Series 9 Design and Portability
The original Samsung Series 9’s brushed dark metal surface has been advanced to a bluish grey. It is very efficient and appears to be stylish, even with the less-than-subtle embossed logo on the surface. It is designed to resist fingerprints—though this does not mean it can shrug off overly oily hand mauling. Furthermore, the model feels very sturdy, regardless of the light weight, and Samsung lays it down to the casing that is basically from duralumin, an advanced technology material that is commonly used in fighter planes.
It is a little lighter and slimmer than the former model that measures 13 millimeters at its slimmest. It is a difference that is not easy to feel, or see, but it is undoubtedly a step in the right track. The sides of Samsung Series 9s come with two USB ports (2.0 and 3.0), and a combined mini HDMI port, SD card reader and mic-headphone jack. There are also VGA ports and mini Ethernet, which has a dongle connector to preserve the slim shape.
The interior of the model comes with considerable backlit keys, which are suitably spread out and sit just pleased of the casing. They are sensitive and provide enough travel for easy typing without slowing you down.
The mouse pad supports commands that are multi-digit, but it could be fairly unreliable when classifying presses on the right and left buttons, which are not marked, causing in several missed presses.
The 13.3-inch screen appears exquisite with its resolution of 1600 by 900 pixels and excels in terms of sharpness and brightness. The detail looks stunningly crisp and colors are very vibrant- even better. It has also a wide viewing perspective, so sharing is not a problem. Furthermore, it is carrying a 12 gigabyte state drive that would usually agree in its price range.
Under the covering, it is operated by a Core i5-2467M 1.6GHz dual-core processor that comes with a four gigabyte of RAM and 3000 graphics chip of Intel’s HD–not a bad system actually. It provided a PCMark performance standard rating of 2,263, which places it behind the Asus Zenbook, but restfully in front of its Series 5 little predecessor. It took a comparatively slow ten minutes and ten seconds to encode an 11-minute motion picture for iTunes. As for the gaming (on Portal, with the use of default settings), however, it provided some striking frame rates soaring around the 130-140fps mark. Furthermore, battery can be disappointing as it only last for about three hours. This is maybe because of the demands of that striking screen.
The innovative Samsung Series 9 i7 is indeed one of the best Samsung laptop, and it manages the trick of being exceptionally light and thin. Although its performance is quite disappointing, but its screen is attractive and the keyboard is very comfortable to use. It also feels durable enough to withstand damages. While the Samsung Series 9 price starts from $1,299.99– particularly considering that is for just 128 gigabyte of storage and 4 gigabyte of Ram—you are paying for one well-designed device.
