Samsung has announced a couple of new laptops in the Notebook 9 series. These midrange machines appear to be aimed at productivity minded individuals and lack the kinds of bells-and-whistles approach that Samsung usually throws on its higher end products.
The 13.3- and 15-inch Notebook 9s have identical specifications. They are both fitted with Full HD displays, and go up to an Intel Core i7 processor. Other specifications are a choice between 4GB and 8GB RAM, and a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Being on the budget side of things, the Notebook 9 series uses integrated graphics instead of a discrete graphics card.
The only real difference between the two (aside from the size) are the I/O ports. The 13.3-inch model has two USB 3.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, mini Ethernet port, mini VGA, and a 3-in-1 card reader. On the other hand, the 15-inch model has a USB type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI port, mini Ethernet port, and a microSD card reader.
Samsung is set to begin selling these machines in select markets in early 2016; although that certainly does not include Malaysia. The company has long since stopped selling laptops in this country and does not seem to be looking to change it any time soon.
