Super slim Samsung Series 9 laptops set to shine
Samsung’s new Series 9 13.3-inch and 15-inch laptops have been rumoured to arrive in stores this month. That rumour looks one step closer to coming true, after the slim Series 9 laptops appeared for pre-order at a U.S electrical retailer.
A lightweight construction, and proportions thin enough to make Apple MacBook Air owners look twice has already seen the Samsung Series 9 gather fans looking forward to getting their hands on it.
Whisper it quietly, but the Samsung Series 9 laptops may be those so-called ultrabooks – a new category invented to describe laptops with impossibly thin dimensions with top specs. Ultrabooks were a common theme at CES 2012 last month. Their portability and lightness make them a worthy compromise for those still deciding on a tablet or a laptop. Just don’t call them ultrabooks. We’ve yet to hear anyone call them that in public.
The Samsung Series 9 comes with a minimum 1.6GHz Core i5 processor and 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) for its 13.3-inch models. The laptops have been elusive up to now, except in South Korea, where a 15-inch version is available with an Intel Core i7 processor and 256GB (SSD).
A February 27th date has been reported, but North American store J&R can only confirm that the laptops will be “coming soon”. We will also be hoping for a UK launch date. So if you’re on the hunt for a thin laptop with good specs that won’t weigh you down, keep an eye out.
