This laptop meets every requirement for a top of the line machine. It is sleek. It is light weight. It is sturdy. The screen is so nice it is almost too bright, and it is a perfect screen to use in direct sunlight. The keyboard and back-light are both very comfortable. An ambient sensor auto adjusts the back-light and the screen while on battery. The battery, on conservative power consumption settings, gets close to nine hours. As I am writing this review, 82% on the battery meter says 7hrs and 3mins. It is quite impressive. There is one small issue. Out of the box the wifi signal was awful. Very, very slow speeds and a constantly oscillating link connection to the router not only ate up battery but had me thinking about sending this gorgeous machine back. There is an easy fix though: Click on more power options. Click on Change power settings, and then click on advanced power settings. Scroll down to the Wireless Adapter Settings and open it. Then open the Power Saving Mode. There you will find two modes. One for Plugged in and one for On battery. The On battery mode is set at Maximum Power Saving. Ticking it up one level to Medium Power Saving changed the entire connectivity of the laptop. It is now both a stable and fast signal, and i daresay more battery efficient. If you have the money, there is nothing better available than this laptop, and that includes, imo, the mac air and pro.

Samsung made a beautiful machine. One that from the specs and looks would be a good alternative to the mac products. Unfortunately, they failed drastically with the keyboard. Anyone who thinks differently is going from a typewriter to this keyboard and finds it to be an improvement. If they would fix the keyboard it would be one of the best UltraBooks on the market.

      Comments about Samsung Series 9 Black Ash Laptop Computer:

      I was looking for a laptop to replace my Lenovo W500 and MacBook Air. I needed something quick, a good sized screen and high performance. So far (2 months in...) still loving it! As the screen is larger this made my MacBook Air a shelftop and my W500 has not been powered on since. 1st world problem - my laptop boots up, logs in and opens Internet Explorer (and all my home pages) before WiFi has finished connecting... Touchpad is kinda flakey when the system gets warm, change of drivers improved this. This is a definate upgrade over every other laptop I have used.

          What's not to like??? Fast, sleek, W7, SSD and big bright 15" screen. It could use a port or two more, a numeric keypad and a larger optional SSD as I worry the 256GB will fill up. Other than that, it's the BEST UB out there and only 3+ lbs.

            I used to be a Sony Vaio customer for years until I gave Samsung a chance and tried their products and I must say I was very impressed. Samsung S 9 15" is the best laptop out there.

                Comments about Samsung Series 9 Black Ash Laptop Computer:

                I love my laptop. I researched it extensively and decided it was worth the money for a long-term, next 3-5 year laptop (assuming that I can upgrade the RAM and 256 SSD). Everything you have read about the build quality and design is true. I was grinning from ear to ear until 1 week later, the touch pad acted up. It’s not sensitive, it was/ is uncontrollable: highlighting , selecting, moving things and not moving where I needed it to be. A reboot does NOT resolve this and I have not installed any 3rd party software. Currently, it has been considered a hardware issue with the pad. I am waiting for the part to have it serviced by Samsung. The slow WiFi stories are true. You need to simply amend the power settings. The speakers sound hollow and baseless. Using it at high levels vibrates the casing, producing an awful noise. The Samsung Update Manager tells me that updates I made, my it's recommendation, have not been updated and them asks me to update them again. After the update, to see if the driver,/ software have taken place and it always does, but the Manager still prompts me to do so. I can’t think of anything else. I had higher expectations for a pricey laptop.

                  I'm very pleased with my new ultrabook computer. It's fast, the keyboard is well designed, and I got it at a great price given all that it can do. I've shown it to several of my friends, and they are so jealous with what a superior computer I have. Thanks Samsung, another one of your products has blown me away. I'm a Samsung brand guy for keeps now.
