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 offer twice the strength of aluminum 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.

The Intel Core i5-2537M (2x1.4 GHz) is an ultra low voltage CPU with a low TDP (maximum amount of thermal power loss) of 17 watts. The clock rate is variable via Turbo Boost 2.0. It can be as much as 2.3 GHz (2 GHz when both cores are loaded). The system is based on an Intel HM65 Cougar Point chipset (Cougar Point 2.0, B3 stepping).
Turbo Boost 2.0 means that there is a kind of overhead above the fixed maximum clock rate (2.3 GHz). Intel calls it "Dynamic Range @ Turbo Frequency Limits". For example, the processor clocks up to 1x2.5 GHz (Dynamic Range), that is if the cooling system can dissipate the temperatures. Should the temperatures get too high, it limits itself to its defined standard again (2.3 GHz, Turbo Frequency Limits). The performance consequently sinks marginally when the temperatures increase. The period where a subnotebook with a limited cooling system remains in Dynamic Range should be very short.
Alike the Arrandale i5 CPUs, the Core i5-2537M has a memory controller for a DDR3 RAM and an Intel HD 3000 onboard. The dual channel DDR3 memory controller can address a maximum of 8 GB DDR3-1333 MHz. 2x2048 MB are installed in the test system. Alike the Samsung SSD (MZMPA128HMFU, 128GB), the RAM can't be replaced. At least not by a technical novice. Others could disassemble the entire chassis.
