Samsung 9-Series NP900X4C-A02 15.1-inch Ultrabook Laptop Review
Samsung 9-Series NP900X4C-A02 15.1-inch Ultrabook Laptop Review - PCSTATS
Design wise, Samsung have done well by their 9-Series Ultrabook; the system is wrapped in dark cobalt blue aluminum chassis that adopts many of the design elements of an Apple Macbook Air, yet posses the large screen size of a MacBook Pro (albeit with better hardware) and a sticker prices that won't cause heart failure.

FutureMark PCMark Vantage - HDD Suite Source: FutureMark

PCMark Vantage is the first objective hardware performance benchmark for PCs running 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows Vista. PCMark Vantage is perfectly suited for benchmarking any type of Windows Vista PC from multi media home entertainment systems and laptops to dedicated workstations and hi-end gaming rigs. Regardless of whether the benchmarker is an artist or an IT Professional, PCMark Vantage shows the user where their system soars or falls flat, and how to get the most performance possible out of their hardware. PCMark Vantage is easy enough for even the most casual enthusiast to use yet supports in-depth, professional industry grade testing. Higher points are better.

On the whole, PCMark Vantage positions the 256GB Samsung SSD well. There is no sense in comparing these results to desktop SSDs... but we should mention that from power off to Windows 7 desktop takes about 9-10 seconds. Going into Hibernation mode is ~3 seconds, coming out of hibernation is less than 1 second.

Next up, AS SSD results...

The AS SSD benchmark determines the performance of Solid State Drives (SSD). AS SSD benchmark is made specifically to test SSD performance. It is a synthetic benchmark that gauges bandwidth and latency speeds for solid state disks. Higher bandwidth (MB/s) is better, lower latencies (ms) are better.

Windows 7 x64 is installed to a 256GB Samsung MZMPC256HBGJ SSD in the Samsung NP900X4C-A02 ultrabook. AS SSD gives us a true measure of the SSDs performance, placing it very well with a Sequential Read result of 459MB/s, Sequential Write value of 253.79MB/s and slightly higher than expected Read 4k-64 Third result of 284.47MB/s

These results are competitive against SATAIII OCZ Verex 3 and SanDisk Extreme SSDs PCSTATS has recently reviewed.
