Earlier this year Samsung launched the second generation Series 9 notebook. It’s a beautiful machine. Today I noticed the Microsoft Store has the 13.3” Sandy Bridge model discounted $500 down to $799. See http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/en_US/pd/Samsung-Series-9-900X3BA02/productID.247107300 and use promo code SUMMERPC2.
That is one excellent deal. I’m sure there are limits to the number of units available or when the code expires so don’t delay. I didn’t. Someone in my family is getting a new machine. Let’s see, who has been naughty and who has been nice?
See http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/laptops/NP900X3B-A02US for the official specs. See the link above on the Microsoft Store ecommerce site to see the changes they made to the software mix.
[UPDATE for 7/20] Looks like the promotion is already over. I’m sure they got slammed with orders and cleared the inventory.
