CES 2016: Samsung unveils ultra-light Notebook 9 laptops

Ahead of CES 2018 where we usually see these laptops, Samsung has announced its refreshed the Notebook 9 series of convertibles with spec bumps in almost every area. The South Korean tech giant will unveil at least four new devices, including three premium Notebook 9 laptops and a special Notebook 9 Pen. For one, the 13-inch Notebook 9 2018 model has the 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, accompanied by 16 gigabytes (GB) of random access memory (RAM) and up to 512 GB of internal storage, giving the 2017 MacBook a serious competition. The Metal12 is made of magnesium-aluminium alloy which makes the device durable and light.

Samsung's Notebook 9 2018 series models don't look much different to last year's and weigh no more than 2.84lb (1.29kg) but pack the latest Intel Core i7 processor and bigger batteries for what the company calls an "always-on" experience. The company also announced the new Notebook 9 Pen, which comes with its own S Pen stylus.

This is all the more impressive considering that the "Pen" in this laptop's moniker stands for an included S Pen stylus accessory that's embedded inside the device and works without batteries. It also supports S Pen with 4,096 levels of pressure to doodle or write down on the notebook.

The devices will be available in select countries starting in December 2017 in Korea, and in the first quarter of 2018 in the U.S. These models feature 720p HD front-facing camera and are fitted with fingerprint scanner for security.

The port selection on the 13-inch model includes one USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port and microSD card slot.
