    Wow, just noticed 13.3" screen in a 12" chassis. Now THAT's what I like. I always thought there's way too much bezel in most machines.

    And I'll order if I can talk to her :p:

    Physically the NP900X3C is identical to the NP900X3B which is already in circulation. See my review here. to say that it uses a 12" chassis Samsung must have found a 12" machine with extremely wide bezels. My NP900X3B is only fractionally narrower than the Toshiba R700 and is about 1.25" wider than the old 12.1" Toshiba R500.

    Samsung's marketing claim that the 15" NP900X4* is in a 14" chassis is nearer the truth. However, in addition to avoiding wide bezels, Samsung are using a 15.0" panel instead of the standard 15.6".

    Why would you need 8GB ram? AutoCAD or Photoshop? on 13" screen??

    virtualisation primarily, i run xp mode and W8 CP for testing and my ultrabook is currently my main machine. 4gb isnt enough, if they get the S9 to 8Gb in 13" flavour i'd consider trading up for my Z830

    Oh man, I might have to get this one. An 8GB with an i7 would be perfect (I'll upgrade the ssd later). It's gonna be a real blow to my wallet though. I'll hold off as long as I can...

    On the 13.3" I don't really need it, but if there is no price difference from the Sandy Bridge to the Ivy Bridge model and I get 8GB instead of 4GB, I am not going to complain about it.

    wow. i can't imagine how all of you folks are getting around with just 4gB. i'm constantly maxed out!

    i'm used to my old 16gb RAM dell 15z where i never had to worry about ram - so i constantly have 50-100 tabs open + spotify + photoshop + sketchup and maybe a few terminals

    ps if anyone wants to buy it it's for sale again (first buyer couldn't pay)

    1920x1080 15.6" Dell 15z (1" thick, 8hr battery), 16gb ram quad core

    Cannot wait for Ivy Bridge, its going to be even thinner compared to NP900X3B, 16.3mm vs 12.9mm
