A Display that's Twice as Bright
Form meets function in the Series 9 display screen. It's twice as bright as a standard screen, has an unmatched viewing angle at 170 degrees, and features SuperBright Plus display HD+ technology that transforms your viewing experience with 340-nit brightness so you see brilliant color and images even when viewing in direct sunlight. And with HD+, you can fit more of what you really want on your screen and do less scrolling.
Set Your Laptop to Stun
While striking to look at, the Series 9 laptop also sets a premium performance standard. With startup speeds and an extremely fast resume from sleep, you'll get even more done and it leaves every other PC in the airport lounge or conference room behind.
Twice as bright as standard notebook screens and with a 1600 x 900-pixel resolution (view larger).Solid State Drive to Start Even Faster
The Series 9 features a 128 GB solid state drive (SSD) that offers plenty of storage. And, with no moving parts, your data is more secure. It boots up 60 percent faster than a hard disk drive (HDD) and you'll use less power with faster data access. Fast Start Technology saves your data and system configurations to your hard drive and PC memory, so in an instant you can power back on right where you left off.
Connectivity without Compromise
The power of networking is important, but with the new Series 9 it's all about connections. The Series 9 is equipped with a full line of ports for ultimate connectivity--even a full size, masterfully designed SD card slot. And to keep you plugged into what's next, it also features mini Ethernet, HDMI and VGA connectors that are ready and set to go with an adapter dongle.
Longer Battery Life and Life Span
The Series 9 delivers mobility and freedom with its power efficient performance and extensive battery life of up to 10 hours on this 15-inch model. Its advanced lithium-polymer battery and Samsung's innovation PowerPlus charging technology make the battery lifespan last up to three times longer than the typical notebook battery so you can keep going, without worrying how much battery life is left.

Very slick and lightweight
from Simi Valley, CA
Overall, this machine is great - so lightweight and good looking. It boots up fast and has good visibility. I use it periodically for charity work, and the only two downsides I've experienced is no security (K-slot) to lock the laptop and the touchpad is ultra sensitive if your palm brushes it while you're tying something. Overall, I would highly recommend this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product, but nothing flashy
from Washington, DC
This is a pretty great computer. It's our first ultrabook and replaces a dying brick laptop. While I'm not "wowed" by it, it's solid, was a good price, and I think was a good purchase. I'm sure other models are faster, have better battery life, etc., but this was a good purchase for our basic needs.
The thin monster!
By Fjordi the student!
from Waterbury, CT
I use this product in my everyday life. I bring it to school, take notes there, bring it back home, go on the internet, do projects/research papers/ essays and it still runs so so smooth! The fact that I even watch movies on it through Netflix and it NEVER lags is a con and definitely a factor for users to buy. It is very east to transport as it is the size of a notebook and its thickness is extremely small.
