Samsung has good average ratings for its ultrabooks as well as across its entire notebook PC range compared to other manufacturers.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Samsung NP900X4D has a full-size keyboard. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that have been around for around the same time as the NP900X4D do not have a full-size keyboard.
Has a Front Camera
Like most of the other comparable spec notebook PCs that were released around the same time as the NP900X4D, the Samsung NP900X4D has a front camera.
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Samsung NP900X4D supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than the 133MHz processor memory clock speed supported by most ultrabooks that were launched around the same time as it. In addition, this notebook PC supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all laptops that have been around for around the same time as the NP900X4D.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst similar types of laptop is 133MHz.
SSD Storage Medium
This laptop has an SSD storage medium, which is the most commonly found storage medium on portable PCs of this age and spec. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
Fairly Big Screen Size
The NP900X4D has one of the bigger screen sizes (15 inches) amongst ultrabooks of this age. The screen sizes of comparable spec laptops that were released around the same time as the NP900X4D range from 11" to 18", and the average screen size is 14".
+9 More reasons for
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to it.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This portable PC has an 802.11a|802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is typical of many portable PCs that have been around for more than two years.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This notebook PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many portable PCs of a similar type and age to it.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory
Notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the NP900X4D have maximum internal memories of between 16GB and 33GB. At 32,768 megabytes, the NP900X4D has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the NP900X4D.
Very Bright Display Brightness
At 400 candellas per square meter, the NP900X4D has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other portable PCs of a similar spec and age to the NP900X4D. The average display brightness of portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the NP900X4D is 280 cd/m², and the display brightnesss range from 200 cd/m² to 500 cd/m².
Eight Battery Cells
The Samsung NP900X4D is a eight battery cell count portable PC.
Very Big Battery Capacity
At 62 watt-hours, the NP900X4D has a fairly big battery capacity compared to most of the other ultrabooks that came out more than two years ago. Across all the portable PCs of a similar age and type to the NP900X4D the battery capacities range from 23Wh to 72Wh.
2x SO-DIMM Memory Slot
The biggest memory slots of the Samsung NP900X4D is 2x SO-DIMM. That's over two times the memory slots of a 1x SO-DIMM notebook PC, which is the most common memory slots.
This laptop's memory slots (2x SO-DIMM) is in fact the best memory slots across all laptops of a comparable age and spec to the NP900X4D.
Across comparable types of laptop the worst memory slots is 1x SO-DIMM.
6 Reasons Against
Only One PCI Express Lane (max)
The NP900X4D is a one PCI Express lane (max) laptop.
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
When compared to other ultrabooks that came out more than two years ago, the total storage capacity of the Samsung NP900X4D of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Comparable spec laptops that were released more than two years ago have total storage capacity of between 64GB and 1.1TB, and the average total storage capacity is 360GB.
The weights of portable PCs that were released more than two years ago range from 870g to 3.3kg, and the average weight is 1.6kg. With a weight of 1.8 kilograms, the Samsung NP900X4D is quite heavy compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity
Ultrabooks that are a comparable age to the NP900X4D have hard drive capacity of between 120GB and 1TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 550GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the NP900X4D has a very small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age.
+3 More reasons against
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Samsung NP900X4D does not have a touch sensitive screen, although it is worth noting that most of the other ultrabooks that have been on the market for a similar time to the NP900X4D also do not have a touch sensitive screen.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This notebook PC Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently found Ethernet LAN data rate on laptops that are a similar age to it.
5 Other reasons to consider the Samsung NP900X4D
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Samsung released the NP900X4D.
Intel Core I5-3xxx Processor Family
The Samsung NP900X4D has an Intel Core i5-3xxx processor family which is better than most portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it. Most notebook PCs that are a comparable age to it have an Intel Core i5 processor family.
Average Battery Life
At 8 hours, the Samsung NP900X4D has a fairly typical battery life compared to most of the other ultrabooks that came out more than two years ago.
+3 Other reasons
