Samsung is refreshing its Notebook 7 line of thin and light laptops with new models including a compact 13.3 inch model that measures half an inch thick and weighs 2.8 pounds… and a premium 15.6 inch model that weighs 4.1 pounds and packs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics.

The new Samsung Notebook 7 series notebooks should be available July 26th with prices starting at $1000.

All of the new Samsung Notebook 7 series laptops feature solid metal frames, full HD displays with slim bezels, 8th-gen Intel Core “Whiskey Lake” processors, backlit keyboards, precision touchpads, fingerprint readers, and stereo speakers with Dolby Atmost audio.

But there are a few key differences.

The 15.6 inch Samsung Notebook 7, for example, features a slot that allows you to add a second SSD. The 13.3 inch model has only a single PCIe NVMe solid state drive. Samsung also offers the option of NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics for the larger model.

There’s also a more powerful Samsung Notebook 7 Force model, which is a bit thicker and heavier. But it supports up to¬†three storage devices, supports more RAM, and featuress NIVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics. That said, it has the smallest battery of the bunch, despite the fact that it uses more power-hungry hardware. Don’t expect stellar battery life from the Notebook¬† 7 Force.

Samsung also includes a numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard for its 15.6 inch models.

Here’s an overview of key features for each model.
