Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Finger friendly

Keyboard and touchpad reflect the considered design. The touchpad is a one piece affair, but one of the best I’ve tried and is clearly delineated for right clicks.

Samsung bundles a Pontipine-House full of little apps – these are frowned upon by grown-ups but Samsung’s selection is generally quite helpful: including Easy Content Share; File Share (the former is for P2P access for users on your LAN), Network Manager, and SpeedUP Manager. Experienced users will probably have their own tools for the job.

Makes the right impression

Verdict

This is a machine very much for the professional show-off to be seen with – a salesman or a designer. If you’re not in this group, you still might appreciate the power and weight combination on offer here. I was extremely sceptical of the Series 9 concept to begin with, as I am wary of all “look-at-me!” designs. But by the end of the review period, it made perfect sense. It's a nice machine to use. ®
