Samsung has launched the 2nd generation of the Samsung Notebook Series 9. Following the former model, the new Series 9 represents Samsung’s advanced innovative craftsmanship in the premium notebook sector.
The 2nd generation Series 9 boasts the world’s thinnest and most compact chassis. Its refined aerodynamic design represents the best of Samsung’s design with top performance and functionality.
Craftsmanship meets Design
To achieve the highest premium design aspects without compromising performance or functionality – 9,000 hours of design sketches and mock-ups, 24,000 hours of R&D, a total of 33,000 hours were spent by Samsung designers and engineers. Key components such as the LCD panel, keyboard, motherboard, cables, fans and battery have been customized with precision to fit into the new Series 9’s extra flat single shell body.
Samsung’s MaxScreen technology has been implemented to minimize the bezel size while maximizing the screen by up to more than an inch. For the first time, the new Samsung Series 9 offers the world’s thinnest and most compact 15″ premium notebook, featuring a vivid 15″ display fitted into a stylish 14″ chassis.
The truly flat 14.9mm thin design weighing just 1.59kg makes the 15-inch Series 9 almost 50 percent more compact than any existing 15-inch thin and light notebooks. The 13″ Series 9 measures only 12.9mm and weighs just 1.16kg, which is 28 percent smaller than its previous model.
The Mineral Ash Black color of the main body, with sides left in natural matte aluminum creates a surprising contrast. To accomplish such visual perfection, the new Series 9 has been sand-blasted, which provides fingerprint resistant surface for use.
Prestige Features and Performance
Power and performance is assured with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor, 4GB/8GB* memory and 128GB/256GB* SSD. With Samsung Fast Solutions, the new Series 9 boots in 9.8 seconds while Fast Start ensures a 1.4-second wake-up and Fast Browsing provides a 2-times faster web browsing. In addition, the new 15″ Series 9’s battery lasts up to 10 hours.
The 180 percent brighter HD+ SuperBright Plus screen with anti-reflective display ensures clear vision even outdoors. In addition, the 160-degree wide viewing angle guarantees a comfortable viewing experience.
The auto-sensing screen and backlit keyboard adjusts itself to match the surrounding lighting conditions, providing optimum brightness for maximum ease of use, even in particularly dark or bright environments.
