    about bios
    how would you recommend? to leave it on or off
    [​IMG]

    could this be the reason that the CPU frequency sometimes gets stuck on 0.8 Ghz

    First check (using HWiNFO or similar) the current CPU speed range for both mains and battery usage, then change this setting and try again. Please report on what you find.

    About 900X3L...
    what colors is available?
    The mineral ash black looks much better for 900X3L but missing
    what is the size for SSD M2 - 22x60, 22x80 or longer?
    What you thinking about upgrade to that model

    There's another thread for the NP900X3L and there's a lot of useful information in Lisa's review (and the internal photo indicates that the M.2 SSD is 2280).

    From Amazon: Review 250GB Samsung 850 EVO mSATA
    What do you know about Samsung Magician Software and RAPID for NP900X3G,
    do we need install it for better perfomance?
    any recommendation about this two programms for 900X3G?
    or any others from Samsung download page

    P.S. I changed my mind about NP900X3L as there is no "Mineral Ash Black" anymore available,

    I don't know why they made only in silver, I prefer dark colors for my laptop
    Looking more to LG side now - 15" or 14" Ultrabooks ("Gram")

    1. Samsung Magician is useful as the interface for drive configuration, statistics and also any firmware updates. RAPID uses some RAM as a cache and makes the SSD appear much faster in benchmarks but real life behaviour can be different.

    2. If you want a small dark coloured 13" notebook then look at the Dell Latitude 7370. I bought one recently as the successor to my old NP900X3B. The 7370 isn't exceptionally thin but the weight is about the same as the old X3B and it has a very good keyboard with decent travel plus a top quality FHD panel. However, at Dell's normal prices it's expensive but if you have access to Dell Outlet (or resellers of Outlet stock) then it will be reasonably priced. One drawback is the relatively low capacity battery.
