Samsung introduced a sleek new line of notebooks at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, including the super-slim and light-weight Samsung Notebook 9 and Notebook 9 Spin convertible laptops. But if the $1000+ price tags for those laptops seems a bit steep, now the company has more affordable options.
The Samsung Notebook 7 Spin is a convertible notebook with a starting price of $800.
The “spin” in the name refers to the notebook’s 360-degree hinge, which lets you fold the screen back and hold the notebook like a tablet.
Samsung will offer models with 13.3 inch and 15.6 inch display options. Both versions feature 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreens and backlit keyboards. Other features include HDMI and USB Type-C ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and one USB 3.0 port.
The 13.3 inch model features an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD graphics, and 8GB of RAM, while the larger version has a Core i7 chip, NVIDIA 940MX graphics, and support for up to 16GB of RAM.
Samsung will offer up to 1TB of hard drive storage or an optional SSD for some models.
The laptops also feature quick charging support. Samsung says a 20 minute charge should get you two hours of battery life. It takes 90 minutes to fully charge the 15.6 inch model or 100 minutes to give the 13.3 inch Samsung Notebook 9 Spin a full charge.
While Samsung hasn’t provided details about the dimensions or weight of the new notebooks, they certainly look a lot bulkier than the premium Notebook 9 series, which start at just under 1.9 pounds.
The Samsung Notbeook Spin will be available starting June 26th from Samsung.com and Best Buy.
