When you see a new Samsung computer release, you know there must be something in it. Such is the case with Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D-A04US. It's new lightweight laptop solution utilizing the Solid-State Drive storage system. It's cool addition but can you somehow benefit from it? Or from this laptop at all? Let me try to answer that question.

You can get these lightweight Samsungs at least from Amazon.com. Might be they have lowest prices around. Anyway they have very lucrative prices and this laptop is also eligible for free shipping. Provided you order it to an US destionation. You can also check out the current price situation straight from Amazon.com!

Main features

The speciality of this Samsung is the storage solution. It's backbone is the new SSD technology. They are smaller and faster drives and cost bit more than conventional hard disks. They also have limited storage capacity - at least if you don't pay for big one that costs a lot.

So how's the drive in Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D-A04US? The size is 128GB. It's not very impressive size. For basic home users it might be enough. For office and power users it's definitely not enough. You will probably reach the limit at some point. A traveling person would also benefit from it since the laptop is lightweight. It weighs just 2.5 pounds.

Other features

  • Lightweight
  • Looks professional yet trendy
  • Expensive

Other features include Intel Core i5 processor. It's your typical dual-core CPU which can handle most tasks easily. Anyway, the processor typically isn't the bottleneck. Two cores are also enough. Even though quad-core CPU might give slight boost in performance it's not something you'd notice - especially in normal home use.

The 4GB RAM of this Samsung is a minor disappointment. For this price I'd have expected 6GB or more. The 4GB is fine for your every day tasks, like Internet browsing, Skyping and emailing, though. Even occasional resource-intensive tasks and gaming can be done. But if you are looking for a primary power or gaming laptop, get a one with at least 6GB RAM

Speaking about gamers, for them this laptop doesn't bring a lot of joy. The graphics card is integrated one and while it's not crap, it's not your best gaming choice either. Older games can be played with it like newer games with low settings. For serious gaming experience, look for special gaming laptop.


If I could think somebody who would benefit from Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D-A04US it'd be businessmen, trendy people and travelers. The laptop looks extremely good and it's very light. You can easily take it away with you wherever you go. And you can make your friends jealous too, heh. The downside is the price. While it doesn't cost arm and leg it's not something a basic home or office user would want. Instead, for casual use, I recommend something else.
