13.3inch Thin-Light Notebook NP900X3A-A03AU

NP900X3A

Get the right look with Samsung Notebook 900X3A, which is simply oozing with sophistication. Its stunning slim design with flowing curves features the premium and specialised Duralumin, which is the same material used to build aircrafts and stronger than aluminium. Within this slim and lightweight design is a huge mobile performance. The SuperBright Plus LED screen delivers 16 million colours and a market-leading 400 nit brightness viewing experience that is significantly brighter than a normal 13.3" notebook with a 220 nit brightness. Use your Series 9 in day or at night with a beautiful backlit keyboard. Adding to the outstanding performance and the improved Solid-State Drive, Samsung Notebook 900X3A is definitely the one to watch.

Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Duralumin, The New Definition of Lightweight.

Duralumin, The New Definition of Lightweight.
Samsung Notebook 900X3A utilises the lightweight yet strong material Duralumin to create a slim and aerodynamic design. Used in the building of military aircrafts and other highly-specialised equipment, Duralumin is stronger than aluminium despite being light in weight. This allows for a design that is like no other, with premium finishes and a lightweight arching curved design that is beautiful from every angle. Other stylish features include a backlit keyboard that is always easy to see regardless of the environment and an edge-to-edge LCD design for visual impact. It’s a minimalist look that is both simple and sophisticated.
