Readers of my review of the 13.3" Samsung NP900X3B will recall that I was uncertain how that notebook would cope with my usage pattern. In the event the two biggest constraints proved to be lack of storage capacity (fixable now that larger mSATA SSDs have reached the retail chain) and the computer temporarily freezing once the 4GB of RAM was full and Windows needed to dump RAM contents to the SSD while concurrently trying to load more data. I hadn't anticipated this as being a major constraint but with the RAM being non-upgradable then I needed to look around. Given that I was well satisfied with the build quality and general usability of the NP900X3B, want better than HD resolution and dislike a glossy display then the logical upgrade was its larger sibling. The 15-inch NP900X4C bears a strong family resemblance to the smaller 13.3-inch version. The "4" in the model number indicates that Samsung considers it to be the equivalent of 14-inch notebooks rather than those with the larger 15.6-inch displays. In reality, the width is in the same range as the older 15.4-inch notebooks (see, for example, my review of the Samsung X60) and the height (and pixel size) is about the same as on a 14.1" 1440 x 900 pixel display but an inch wider.
The outstanding 13" Series 9 isn't the only ultrabook in Samsung's new range. There's also this 15", known as the Series 9 9004XC. In theory, it's just the larger version of the same computer. But, skeptics that we are, that just wasn't good enough for us. We had to dig deeper. We had to poke our nose around and find out the truth: is the super-sized version really on par with the 13"? Opening the box, we found the same contours and materials that pleased us on the 13". The 15" is elegant with refined finishings. Our only very minor reservation might be the wrist support, which tends to collect fingerprints despites its non-glossy surface. The keyboard is also similar to the 13" version, with low-lying, quiet keys. One addition in this model is a shortcut column on the right. Samsung has also made use of the 15" format to enlarge the touchpad. The entire surface is clickable, except for a one-centimetre band at the top. The touchpad allows for smooth, precise finger movements and features multitouch functions such as zooming and two-finger scrolling.
