Samsung unveiled a new line of thin, light, and convertible laptops with pen support last month. And now the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro models are just about ready to go.
You’ll be able to place pre-orders online starting June 11th, and the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro should be available in stores starting June 26th.
Prices start at $1099.
That’s the price for a 13.3 inch model with 8GB of RAM and Intel HD graphics. A 15 inch model with 16GB of RAM and AMD Radeon 540 graphics will set you back $1299.
For the most part, the rest of the specs are the same for both laptops. They each feature 1920 x 1080 pixel displays, Intel Core i7-7500U processors, 256GB of SSD storage, and a 54 Wh battery with fast charging support.
Both feature two USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, HDMI, headset, and microSD card ports, and stereo 1.5 watt speakers.
And both come with a Samsung S-Pen with support for more than 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, allowing you to write or draw on the screen. Unlike a lot of convertible or 2-in-1 tablets on the market these days, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro also has a slot for storing the pen inside the laptop when it’s not in use.
There’s a 360-degree hinge on the laptops, allowing you to switch between notebook and tablet modes by pushing back the display. And each model supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, a backlit keyboard, a 720p webcam with IR support for Windows Hello facial recognition, and a dual-array microphone.
But obviously the 15 inch model is bigger. It measures 13.7″ x 9.4″ x 0.7″ and weighs about 3.8 pounds and comes with a 60 watt AC adapter.
The 13.3 inch version of the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro measures 12.2″ x 8.5″ x 0.6″ and weighs 2.9 pounds. It comes with a 40 watt AC adapter.
