As expected, Samsung is now offering a version of its Series 9 ultrabook with a 1920 x 1080 pixel display. But the good news is that it’s less has a lower starting price than expected.

You can now pick up Samsung’s 2.6 pound laptop with an Intel Core i7 processor and an Ivy Bridge display for as $1350 and up.

Samsung Series 9

That’s the price Staples is charging (although it’s not yet in stock), and Quill charges the same price. Amazon is selling the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3E-A02US for the manufacturer’s suggested price of $1400.

The laptop features an Intel Core i7-3537U processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB solid state disk. It gets up to 5.8 hours of battery life.

You can probably find cheaper notebooks with similar specs, but you probably won’t find one that’s as thin or light as the Samsung Series 9.

The notebook measures 12.4″ x 8.6″ x 0.5″ and weighs just 2.56 pounds.

I own a cheaper model of this laptop, and while I actually prefer a 1600 x 900 pixel display to a higher-resolution display on a screen this size, I’m a big fan of the form factor.

  1. Too many pixels for windows on this size screen. 1600×900 is pushing the upper amount. I’m zooming in on webpages by about 110-115% on my older samsung 9 with 1600×900.

    1. There is no such a thing as too many pixels. You should not zoom the browser (I agree it’s a pain), you should zoom the font size in the OS instead. Even Windows XP allowed to do that somewhere in the control panel.

      The problem with Samsung’s Series 9 is that these computers are limited. 8 GB max RAM and one can’t probably upgrade the 256 GB SSD to something bigger one or two years from now.

      1. It doesn’t zoom all elements and becomes a little messy. Also increasing the size of elements in windows screws with certain work apps I use. Windows just isn’t cut out for high pixels so yes there is such a thing as too many pixels. When windows catches up then higher pixel screens can be a good thing.
