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.

These scores come as no surprise considering that the older Samsung R480 notebook is equipped with a Geforce GT 330M videocard that has 48 shader cores, while the new Samsung NP900X4C-A02 Ultrabook uses a bog-standard integrated graphics core ( Intel HD 4000 IGP ). The 'R480 is understandably going to be faster in FPS oriented games, and is. The Samsung 9-series is perfectly fine for desktop work and will output video to a second monitor or HDMI display, just don't expect really any gaming performance from it.

Next, 3DMark Vantage results.

Similar results in 3DMark Vantage -- although the Intel HD 4000 stacks up better in this benchmark to the 'R480's Geforce GT 330M graphics card, the Samsung NP900X4C-A02 weighs in with an anemic GPU score of 2879.

3DMark 11 failed to complete its test run on the 900X4C-A02' Intel HD 4000 IGP. Next we have Sandra CPU + Memory benchmarks.
