Samsung’s Notebook 9 laptop gets an upgrade

Samsung Notebook 9

It’s easy to forget, but Samsung still manufactures Windows-based laptops. To make sure people remember, the company updated its high-end Notebook 9 with better specs and an even sleeker body.

While there’s no information about pricing or availability yet, we’ll probably get a closer look at the refreshed lineup at CES 2017 in early January. For now, we have specifications and a few product shots to talk about.

The biggest highlight is the lightweight housing, which Samsung says makes the 13-inch model the lightest laptop of its kind at 1.8 pounds (roughly 810 grams). We’ll have to double-check that claim, though, as there are convertibles out there that are less hefty and could count as notebooks.

Closer to two pounds or 900 grams, the 15-inch variant is also quite the featherweight, although Samsung hasn’t claimed any world records for it yet. All credit goes to the incredibly slim bezels and trimmed chassis.

For greater performance, Samsung made sure to slot in the latest Intel processors, specifically seventh-generation Kaby Lake Core i5 and i7 chipsets. Memory and storage options will vary depending on how much you’re willing to spend, but rest assured, no chunk of change will allow a graphics card to fit inside.

In even better news, all the vital connectivity options are available, from the pair of USB 3.0 ports and single USB Type-C port, to the microSD slot and HDMI port. There’s also a fingerprint scanner for quicker logins.

And since no company can get away with poor battery life these days, Samsung promises seven hours of continuous use on a single charge, plus fast charging to full within 80 minutes.

We’re glad Samsung is trying to keep up with the big boys. Lenovo, HP, Dell, Apple, and ASUS currently lead in market share, but tides could easily change faster than those of the smartphone industry.
