At CES 2011, Samsung revealed its answer to the Apple MacBook Air--the Series 9 notebook. This ultraportable laptop has some impressive hardware (Intel Core i5 CPU, 128GB SSD, and 4GB of RAM), but it also has an impressive price tag.
Samsung sent TechRepublic a 13" Series 9 to test, and I just couldn't resist taking it apart. I'm glad I did. Unlike the MacBook Air, the Series 9's case is easy to open, you can upgrade the RAM, and it uses standard Phillips screws. Follow along as I crack open the ultrathin Samsung Series 9 laptop.
Check out the TR Dojo blog, for my observations about the Series 9 and our teardown process.
