Samsung Notebook 9 Pro Ready for Sale This Month, Priced Up From $1099

By James A.

Samsung debuted a new series of convertible laptops last month and now they’re ready for sale. We’re talking about the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro devices, that will be sold from this month, priced at $1099 and up. They will be found in stores from June 26th.

Preorders will commence on June 11th and the newcomer is available in either a 13.3 inch or 15 inch version. The bigger model also brings 16 GB of RAM and AMD Radeon 540 graphics, at a price of $1299. The smaller unit gives you 8 GB of RAM and Intel HD graphics only. The rest of the specs sounds pretty good, including Full HD screens, Intel Core i7 chipsets, 256 GB of SSD storage and a 54 Wh battery.

Connectivity is also modern enough, with two USB 3.0 ports, one USB Type-C, HDMI, audio jack and microSD. Of course WiFi and Bluetooth are also a thing. Stereo 1.5 watt speakers are offered, too. Obviously, the selling point is the addition of the S-Pen stylus in the mix, with over 4000 levels of pressure sensitivity. Samsung Notebook 9 Pro can also store the pen inside the device when the S Pen isn’t being used.

Since it’s a convertible, there’s also a 360 degree hinge for the rotating screen, so you can alternate between tablet and laptop mode. Specs are rounded up by a backlit keyboard, HD webcam with IR support and dual array microphone. I find the prices to be more reasonable than the ones of the Galaxy Book, especially if you compare bang for the buck.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C213NA Now Official, as New Touchscreen Laptop for the Classroom

By James A.

There’s a new Chromebook in town, one made by ASUS and known as the ASUS Chromebook Flip C213NA. It’s meant for the classroom and it’s a convertible machine, that’s pictured below.

This device packs an 11.6 inch touchscreen display with a 360 degree hinge and its body has been seriously ruggedized. The “brain” here is an Intel Celeron Apollo Lake N3350 processor and we also get 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, two USB Type-C ports and two USB 3.0 ones. Stereo speakers and microphone are also part the specs, plus expandable storage.

The resolution is an atypical 1600 x 900 pixels and there’s a camera integrated within the top side of the keyboard, which is also odd. The idea is to put the device in tent mode and have the screen facing you, while the camera faces away, so you can firm a classroom lecture. Don’t worry, as there’s also a front facing webcam. Asus Chromebook Flip C213NA arrives with WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and an audio jack.

A 46 Wh battery is also here and the whole thing weighs 2.8 pounds, plus it measures 0.8 inches in thickness. No official price or debut date has been given.

Computex 2017: Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is an S-Pen Totting Notebook With 13.3 inch and 15 Inch Diagonals, Up to Core i7 CPU

By James A.

Samsung is also at Computex 2017 these days, announcing some new products, like the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. This laptop comes in 13 inch and 15 inch versions and is available with a special S Pen slot.

An interesting piece of functionality is the 360 degree hinge, that lets the Notebook 9 Pro be used as a tablet, not only a regular laptop. The stylus offered here has 4000 levels of pressure and it’s able to detect tilt for shading, like the brand new Surface Pen from Microsoft. Samsung’s own Air Command software is available here, for purposes like drawing, writing and editing stuff.

As we said above, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro comes in 13.3 inch and 15 inch versions, both with up to a Core i7 processor. The 13.3 incher will arrive with 8 GB of RAM, which is boosted to 16 GB on the bigger model. 256 GB of SSD storage are also here and the 15 inch Notebook Pro uses an AMD Radeon 450 graphics card, too. Connectivity-wise, things are kept modern by an USB-C port with fast charge, as well as regular USB ports and a HDMI.

Windows 10 is the OS Of choice, in case the Air Command thing threw you off towards Android. Windows Hello is available and microSD storage too. Sadly we have no price or launch date, but I’m guessing the product should be out before IFA 2017 time.
