Yesterday we received at the office the new Samsung 9 Series notebook that was first introduced at CES. I should confess that the first time I saw this notebook I immediately fell in love.
Samsung has done a great design exercise with this device. The external case is very slick with almost no sharp angles, instead the lines follow a nice subtle curve. All the connectors, which include Micro HDMI, headphone, mic-in, RJ45, 2 USBs and even a MicroSD slot, are hidden in small slots that you can open only when needed.
The weight, 1.3 Kg and the size 32.7 cm x 22.6 cm with a thickness of only 1.7 cm are just amazing and places this computer in the same range of the MacBook Air or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1.
The display follows the same high quality pattern with a 400 nits, HD Led Backlit anti-glare display with an Intel HD Graphics 3000.
This is not just a small computer, it’s a serious and powerful device with 3 year warranty and great specifications:
- Intel Core i5 Processor 2537M
- 4GB DD3 (8GB Max.)
- 128 GB Solid State Drive
All this and more for approx. $1600 and a battery life that gives you up to 7 hours to go.
