Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D Windows 8 Ultrabook on pre-order at £1000

The Samsung Series 9 NP900X3D, which is very similar to the NP900X3C, costs £1000 at Currys and will be available for delivery as of 26 October.

The main difference between the two Ultrabooks is the processor used. The former uses an i5-2537M clocked at 1.4GHz (turbo boosted to 2.3GHz with 3MB cache), while the latter adopted a Core i7-3517U processor clocked at 1.9GHz with a 3GHz TurboBoost and 3MB cache.

The rest of the features are identical - both laptops have an all aluminium chassis, a 13.3in 1,600 x 900 400nit anti-reflective HD+ LED Display equipped with auto-sensors, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, two USB ports, GbE, Bluetooth, HD camera, VGA and HDMI ports plus the promise of a 1.4 second wake up and an 8.7 second boot-up.

Samsung has bundled a few applications with the NP900X3D, including Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Samsung Recovery Solution, CyberLink YouCam and WildTangent Game console.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
