  • The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus goes toe to toe with the best premium ultrabooks, then tops it off with a jaw-dropping high-resolution display.


  • In any case, the 940X3G has overall really earned a purchase recommendation, although potential buyers can choose among many, not less attractive alternatives. Another serious contender might be the soon to be released Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro that features an even better configuration for a similar price. Samsung should not rest on its laurels.


  • The ATIV Book 9 Plus keeps the slim and sleek chassis of its predecessor and adds a Retina-like display, long battery life and swift Haswell performance.


  • The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D is an attractive 13-inch laptop that is easy to cast as Samsung's alternative to the MacBook Air. However, it shouldn't be dismissed as being all about style. Its combo of low weight, thin frame, a matt screen and SSD storage makes it incredibly portable and convenient. This helps to offset that it doesn't offer a great amount of power for the price.


  • You can tell, can't you? I really like the Samsung Series 9 and it's hard to beat as one of the most ultraportable 13" Ultrabooks for style, quality, performance and extreme light weight. The only drawback? It lacks a touch screen, and Windows 8 is easier to use with touch. That said, if you spend most of your time in the traditional Windows desktop UI with Word, Excel, Visual Studio, Photoshop and other Windows staples as your constant companions, you probably won't miss the touch screen.

    The Samsung Series 9 2012 is a great laptop with a stunning design. It's not always easy to see how things really "feel" in the real world when all you have are photos and videos, and Samsung should do anything it can to put these in people's hands. It is amazing to see that a 15" laptop can be so light (3.63lbs), and yet feel so well built.

    As nice as it is, it's not perfect: the display view angle and the touchpad driver would be the main thing that I would like to see improved in a subsequent update.


  • The Samsung ATIV Book 7 (NP740U3E-K01UB) ultrabook offers style and substance with solid performance, all-metal construction, and a 1080p touch screen.


  • The Samsung Ativ Book 7 has a high-resolution touchscreen display and fabulous battery life, but its wonky Wi-Fi performance is a problem and its keyboard will drive touch typists bonkers.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The ATIV Book 7 is a good value among touchscreen Ultrabooks, with a reliable trackpad, fast SSD and lovely display. The main trade-offs are a shallow keyboard and a relatively heavy frame.


  • The Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch NP540U3C-A01UB is a solid touch-enabled ultrabook with decent performance and battery life.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The Series 5 UltraTouch is a solid mid-range Windows 8 Ultrabook, with decent battery life, a responsive touchscreen and a tasteful design. If you wanted, though, you could get the same specs for less money.


  • Samsung's midprice Series 5 UltraTouch looks and feels like a more expensive machine, but keeps it simple by skipping the complex hybrid mechanics of so many new Windows 8 systems.


  • The Samsung Series 3 NP300E5E-A05CA balances performance with price, making it a smart bet for mainstream shoppers.


  • It could have been perfect: low weight, decent enough build quality, long battery life, good looks, a dedicated graphics card, and a good price-performance ratio - we even would have overlooked the lack of stability and rigidity in the design. The multimedia notebook manages to get most things right and could have been a very good solution for watching movies, editing videos, and the occasional gaming.
