What’s in the Box
Series 9 laptop with 15-inch screen (model NP900X4C-A06US), AC adapter, rechargeable battery, operating instructions 1-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
Environmental Energy Star (5.2) EPEAT Gold
I understand what the reviewers are saying. The colors DO wash out if you tilt the screen forward or backward. However, tilting the display far enough to uncomfortably wash out the screen poses bigger problems, like the fact that the screen is at a horribly awkward angle. It was fine out of the box, but I calibrated the display (took 3 min) and now it’s quite good.
Back to the good, this laptop is THIN. It’s hard to appreciate its size until you truly see it. At 15 inches, it’s easily one of (if not the) thinnest 15 inchers on the market. It doesn’t hurt that it’s a looker too.
The windows experience index is 5.9, with the lowest being the graphics (5.9) which is expected. The rest of the specs are in the high 6′s or low 7′s
I recommend working your way through a clean install and getting all the crap off, considering you don’t get too much harddrive space with all of the preloaded crap.
I love this laptop, and gave it 4 stars mostly because of the bloatware, and that windows 8 is meh on a laptop without a touchscreen. However, it’s certainly a great laptop and the reviews don’t do it justice
– 6-8 hours of battery life with heavy use of Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Google Chrome simultaneously
– Really light and sleek design that’s much much better than the hefty Toshiba A505D I had before
– It doesn’t heat up much at all, especially when kept on a hard non-insulating surface. Insulating surfaces (i.e. your bed or lap) tend to heat it up much quicker
– Boots up in about 12-14 seconds
– The wi-fi has not cut out for me yet (this is the New Series 9)
– 8gb RAM
– Trackpad is awesome and works perfectly fine for me (only issues came up when I mistakenly rested my other palm on the pad…just have to get used to it)
- 128 GB SSD which actually = 60 gigs out of box
- Text and image display on the screen isn’t Amazing, but is manageable
- Speakers strangely on the bottom of the laptop…doesn’t really make sense to me, but I use headphones and external speakers 99% of the time anyways so not a deal braker.
Overall I love the Samsung 9 performance wise. It’s fast, light, and efficient. It’s perfect for my use and why I gave it a 5 star rating. If the most important factors to you for your laptop are screen resolution and/or SSD space (which can be changed, but I believe voids your warranty) then I would not go with this laptop. Otherwise, it’s a great choice!
I do not have any problem with the keyboard or the trackpad like other reviewers claimed. There is a side swipe in windows 8 that got annoying but then I just turned it off. I was worried that this only being an i5 processor that running photoshop, aptana, WAMP, eclipse, and many chrome tabs would slow it down. Well, I was wrong. It kept up pretty well with everything that I was doing. If I had a bad experience at one point, it at least wasn’t bad enough to stick in my head.
Bad notes: The screen does look a little washed out compared to my alienware. I also really, really wish it had a better screen resolution. But in actuality, I don’t even think or notice it at all in my normal daily activities.
I got this thing on amazon for an almost $400 discount because of a free $200 amazon gift card that came with purchasing the laptop, and the laptop was already marked down $200 on sale. I love it especially for its battery life and looks. Processing power though is also good.
I know a lot of folks have complained about the display and the wifi connectivity.
The wifi did not connect at first. After rebooting the router, modem and clearing the dns cache, it connected and worked fine.
The display controls can be set very easily, and the interface is built very well. It takes you step by step (through color settings, gamma, brightness, text etc) and you can set it to your convenience.
There is some bloatware which I uninstalled.
The keypad is similar to MacBook, and frankly I really like it. It takes lesser effort to type.
I am really happy I bought this laptop. Good luck finding the right laptop for you!!
