One of the most eye-catching gadgets showcased in this year’s Consumer Electronics Show was the Samsung Notebook 9. It is a premium 13-inch notebook packing the 2nd generation Intel Core processor on a light but durable body.
Here’s a rundown of some features that makes this laptop something Samsung should be really proud of.
Compact and Light
The Samsung Notebook 9 Series is crafted from material known as Duralumin, a lightweight material that is twice as strong as aluminum and normally used in advanced aircraft design. It only weighs 1.31kg (2.88lbs.) and measures only 16.3mm (0.64inches) in depth at its thinnest point. That’s light as a MacBook Air (2.9lbs.) folks!
Ultra Vivid Display
The notebook has a SuperBright Plus display with 400nit brightness, which is two times brighter than conventional displays, as well as its vibrant Color reproduction (16 million colors) and Super Contrast ratio (1,300:1), makes it one of the most beautiful notebook displays on the market. Have to take the word from the makers of the Super AMOLED.
The Notebook 9 Series is equipped with Microsoft Windows 7 and the 2nd generation Intel Core i5/i7 Processor with up to 8GB memory. It comes with a 128 or 256GB SSD that powers Samsung’s Fast Start instant-on feature which allows users to start working within 12 seconds, or 3 seconds from sleep mode.
It also has a 1.3megapixel HD webcam and a larger, fully touch sensitive advanced gesture pad, providing a new, stylish and convenient way to use the notebook.
Long Battery Life
The new Intel Core processors promises a better battery performance and according to Samsung, their Notebook 9 Series’ battery lasts up to three times longer than a typical notebook battery.
The Samsung 9 Series is scheduled to be available in February 2011, starting at $1,599. That’s as expensive as the 256GB 13-inch MacBook Air.
