Comment: I bought the old Samsung 9 about 10 months ago and while it is a great computer in terms of its stunning light weight, and the impressive bright screen it has one major design flaw. The screen touches the keypad when closed and as a result of that I have scratches across the screen from the rim of the keypad. It looks to me as if they have redesigned this in the new model but the old one sucks because of that. This is just too basic an issue to recommend this machine (old 9 series version).
Comment: A resolution of 1600x900 is expected? On a 13"? I'm not sure that resolution can be called 'average' on a screen this size? Even the Macbook Air only has 1440 x 900 and Dell's new model is a 1366 x 768 screen in the 13.3" form factor (compare the 13" Macbook Pro which has a resolution of 1280 x 800). Not sure why you'd expect Full HD 1080 at this screen size or what it would add? Also this is the review does not mention that it's not a TN panel as with most screens out there.
Definitely torn between this and the Air, although Samsung currently has a VAT Rebate offer so this works out to £999 which is tempting! Both great machines, so hard to choose!
Good: Weight, build quality
Bad: Trackpad difficult to come to terms with
Comment: Bought for travel so weight and build quality the top prorities. It's a pity no separate graphics controller can be included in the package. Speed of reawakening is impressive!
