Wednesday, February 9th, 2011 - LAPTOP, Samsung

As we know so far that MacBook Air is the thinnest notebook ever then you can say that Samsung 9 Series Series is a head to head competitor to MacBook Air. The differences in size and weight may amount to not much more than a rounding error—2.89 pounds to the Air’s 2.9, and profiles of .64 inches versus .68.  Samsung 9 Series is said to be the thinnest and lightest 13-inch notebook available.


The 13.3-inch 9 Series features a LED-backlit screen, offering the highest quality visual experience from SuperBright Plus display with 400- nit brightness. Digital images and multimedia are brought to life on Samsung 9 Series, assisted by a 100,000:1 contrast ratio and true-to-life color reproduction (16 million colors), enriching the computing experience for end users. It brings together new Intel Core i5 2537M processor, 128GB SSD, and 4GB of RAM.

Ensuring to be ready to use anytime anywhere, the 9 Series uses Samsung’s new power-efficient lithium polymer batteries, and achieves up to 6.5 hours of battery life on average.
