Samsung’s Series 9 notebook line feature laptops which are thin, light, stylish, and rather expensive. The company introduced a version with a 13.3 inch display earlier this year with a starting price of $1599 and an 11.6 inch model for $1200. Now, Samsung is launching new models at lower prices.
They’re still not exactly cheap though. An 11 inch Samsung Series 11 will run $1049 when configured with 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD, and an Intel Core i3-2357M processor. A model with the same CPU but 4GB of RAM and a 128GB solid state disk will run $1249. Both models are scheduled to ship in August.
Samsung is also lowering the price of entry-level 13.3 inch Series 9 laptop. A model with an Intel Corei4-2467M CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB hard drive is now available for $1349. For an extra $300 you can get a 256GB SSSD and a top-of-the line model with 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and an Intel Core i7-2617M CPU runs $2049.
The 13 inch laptops weigh 2.89 pounds and measure 0.62 inches thick. They get an estimated 7 hours of battery life. I haven’t seen detailed specs for the dimensions or battery life on the 11 inch models yet.
