Bottom Line

The Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X5N-X01US is an elegant Ultrabook that boasts powerful hardware and offers great features. However, the smaller storage drive will fill up quickly and it does not feature an Ethernet port or a full size SD card slot.

The Samsung Notebook 9 NP900X5N-X01US is a bestselling laptop that has been praised for its elegant metal design, fast solid state drive, dedicated NVIDIA graphics, fingerprint reader and for its thin screen bezel. However, the 256GB of SSD will fill up quickly if you have a larger collection of media files. You also do not get a VGA or Ethernet (LAN) port and you will need to purchase an adapter separately. The Samsung Notebook 9 also features Fast Charging, meaning that you can get around 2 hours of use off of a super quick 20 minute charge. This will come in handy when you are pressed for time and need a bit of battery life for a quick meeting or presentation at work.

    Falling into the category of a traditional Ultrabook with no touchscreen, the Notebook 9 15 is a stunning achievement in design and efficiency by a company that deserves more credit for its Windows 10 PCs than it gets.

    The Samsung Notebook 9 offers fast performance, a colorful display and long battery life in a crazy-light design, but it feels a bit cheap.

    A 15-inch laptop with many of the benefits of an ultraportable, the Samsung Notebook 9 is a chameleonic computer capable of being almost anything you need.
