Presented in understated design with cool gray color and built from the premium alloy, Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X3N-K04US is design to response the market demands of thinner, lighter and stylish ultrabooks and as expected, this notebook becomes a good option to the same models from other popular brands.
Samsung NP900X3N-K04US comes with Intel Core i7-7500U processor, a 7th generation of Intel processors. This processor is a dual core model with a frequency of 2.7 GHz up to 3.5 GHz in turbo mode and 4 MB of cache size. It is one of the best ultrabook processor which offers great power with small power consumption. It will support you to work faster and longer.
This Samsung Notebook also comes with an installed 16 GB of on-board DDR4 RAM. This memory modul is soldered to the mother boards, so there is no chance for users to upgrade it further. However, it won’t become an issue as the size is plenty enough for working with intensive tasks and large of data.
As storage space, this ultrabook has a form of SATA3 256-gigabyte Solid-State Drive. For most majorities of users, this SSD is wonderfully well, although it doesn’t have the extra speed boost like the more advanced PCI Express M.2 SSDs. Still, it will be speedy enough for using Windows 10. If you think that 256 GB of storage capacity seems too low, then you can use an external hard disk drive or micro SD for expanding the capacity.
The integrated graphics chipset that comes with Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X3N-K04US is the Intel HD Graphics 620. This graphics technology from Intel is almost as good as entry-level dedicated graphics card so for those who need to stream 4K content or FHD, this graphic card will help them. So does with editing photos or videos. It is not design for gaming laptop however you can play a limited palette of games at decent framerates.
As for the display, this notebook has a 13.3″ LED IPS FHD display panel, not QHD. The colors are brilliant and the resolution actually could be better like the same model from other brands. Well, this is my only complaint about this laptop; the display has been great, however it actually could be better even perfect.
Samsung NP900X3N-K04US has enough I/O ports. There are USB 3.0 ports and also HDMI ports so the user doesn’t need to bring the adapter all time. Here are the all options:
• 1 x USB-C port
• 2 x USB 3.0 ports
• 1 x HDMI-out port
• 1 x COMBO Audio jack
• 1 x MicroSD card reader
And for connecting to the internet, this Samsung ultrabook uses the Intel Wireless-Ac 8260 (2×2 802.11ac) wireless card and Bluetooth v4.1.
As an ultrabook, Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X3N-K04US weighs only 1.8 pounds. Its dimension is 12.18 x 8.19 x 0.55 inches. It is incredible for me since this device can be lighter than many 11.6″ model and with its measurement which is just 0.55 inches, from top to bottom, it is one of the thinnest ultrabook in the market. Well, it is absolutely a portable device so you can take it with you along traveling distances without any matter. It doesn’t need much space and you only need to slide it into your bag or backpack.
The battery life is in line with its thinness and weight. It will last up to 10 hours of moderate use for a full charge. That is enough for a full day’s worth of work.
And I believe that it is safe for me to say that this ultra-portable device is true travel companion.

It is really lightweight, powerful, long lasting and not forget, stylish.
