Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook goes HD

Since it was first introduced the Samsung Series 9 has been one of the most popular and best looking Ultrabooks you could buy and now Samsung has increased its appeal even more by upgrading the screen to a full HD 1920×1080 resolution panel. The model number is NP900X3E

While the 13.3″ screen has been bumped from 1600×900 to full HD 1920×1080 the Samsung Series 9 still packs the familiar features of earlier models, including the slim .51″ body, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit LAN, however the CPU has seen a minor upgrade in the new Core i7-3537U Processor running at 2.0 GHz. Ports remain the same with 1xUSB 3.0, 1xUSB 2.0, micro HDMI,  SD card slot, VGA out and earphone jack.

Arguably the one thing missing in the screen upgrade is the addition of a touch screen which would be particularly useful with Windows 8 and goes against the current trend towards more touchscreen Ultrabooks  but that will be something to look forward to in the next iteration.

The Full HD Series 9 is already available in some areas with the entry level NP900X3E with Core i5 and 128GB SSD coming in at 1199 Euro.  A core i7 version is showing at Amazon.com for $1399

    Any information about a full hd 15inch version?

    It would be nice to have encreased the RAM from the Standard 4GB to 8 or 16 GB .. in the meantime Retina Display is the Appeal of
    apple (although no matt Screen). I bought my Samsung 9 13.3 i5 last year and I must say I am still very pleased:-) full HD would have been nice .. alas:) and for most things i watch or see the 1600 x 900 is more than enough:-) It is matt and a lovely Screen indeed.

    i wish they would actually launch a 15 inch ultrabook that competes in spec with the macbook pro.

    I don’t care at all for a touchscreen (that won’t help to get work done). 8 or 16GB RAM, a 256 or 512GB SSD and 2x USB3 is what I am waiting for. The FHD screen is great, though!
