The Series 9 13" is a near-perfect ultrabook. If Samsung could run a full-HD display with a more comfortable keyboard and slightly better speakers, this would be a perfect 10 machine. I won't gripe about the features/hardware that isn't as I'd like it, because they're not a big hinderance to my computing experience. But I love what Samsung has done here. It's the step before perfection. Perhaps a Windows 8 refresh model could capture every aspect of a premium-quality ultrabook. I certainly would love to see them up the SSD to 160GB - 256GB just to give people some wiggle room, even if they have to add one or two-tenths of a pound. The only other ultrabooks I'd recommend are the Vizio CT15-A2 and the ASUS Zenbook Prime (although neither the CT15 or the Prime get it perfect either, but they're worth looking in to).
