You may remember last year, I wanted to buy a Windows laptop, but I gave it up, just because all those I saw were so futt-bugly!
Well, Samsung is doing well in many areas now, and the Series Nine certainly upgraded the aesthetics of Win laptops! That's a damnable handsome machine! And only the size/weight of the 13-inch MacBook Air too.
Windows is still Windows at heart, but the pleasant looks of Win7 and the beauty of this machine makes it a lot more inviting, I think.
This is also an example of where I think Apple's current ultra-minimalism is doing them no good. Samsung just added a few soft curves to this machine, and it made it so much more beautiful.
Of course it's not exactly cheap at 1300 Sterling (almost $2k), it's a luxury machine for the well-heeled (or those working for well-heeled companies). I guess you won't get good design if you ain't got the coin for it!
Not that the price is unjustified, it has a fast processor, a 128GB SSD, and 4 gigs of RAM. Well equipped for a super-compact.
