"itting a discrete graphics chip into a shell this small without the
whole laptop melting under use would be tricky, but be aware that the
integrated Intel HD 4000 can only handle older games or less demanding
newer ones at lower settings."

The HD4000 is found on ivy-bridge chips, this is a sandy-bridge chip with HD3000 graphics.

I was gonna say, this reviewer is confused about Intel's Processors...

Not only that, he must also be half blind, thinking that this looks like a Macbook Air... if he said that about an Asus Zenbook, I'd say alright, close enough... but this? pffft... He fails to recognize that this design has its own unique way of being cool.

Better to get a deal on its predecessor, the 900X3C, which has a better (newer) Ivy Bridge processor and a few other small details that are better, cause the 'D' model was made by Samsung to be the stripped down affordable version.

The lack of an (always glossy) touchscreen is very welcome to me. I find vertical touch screens on laptops useless. They don't even have proper digitizers with pressure sensitivity for creative uses with a stylus. Any old school user will find them a glary waste of time, weight and money, unless they can be folded to rest horizontally.

Briefly wanted to talk about the dead zones on the Samsung touchpads. I'm using one right now a cheaper Win 7 laptop Series 3 NP300E5A-A02UB and over on the entire left portion of the touchpad seems to losing sensitivity. When I try and move the mouse cursor or tap it to open a link on webpages it doesn't do so on first motion. Its been about a year since buying the laptop and already the cheaper materials are breaking down? I had another Samsung last year which lasted about 15 months before the touchpad stopped responding. Rather annoying knowing Samsung is using cheaper materials even though they are lower end models.

So does the 900x3c lack anything (e.g. a non-glassy screen)? The ATIV 9 I was looking at did not have a touch screen. Do you know what model that is?
