Though Samsung exited the PC market in many regions, it continues to launch a handful of Chrome OS and Windows laptops every year in select markets around the world. At this year’s CES, the company once again refreshed its Notebook 9 laptop lineup by announcing the Notebook 9 Pen (2019) and Notebook 9 Pro (2019) models. They are now set to go on sale in the US on March 17, the company said in a press release.
Both the Notebook 9 Pen and Pro are premium Windows 2-in-1 convertible laptops with a 360-degree hinge. Design-wise, they are slim and light laptops, made out of metal with diamond-cut edges and small display bezels. These are high-end laptops with Intel 8th Gen Core i7 CPUs, up to 16 GB of RAM, NVMe storage, Thunderbolt 3 ports, AKG-tuned speakers, and more. Samsung is promising up to 15 hours of battery on both these devices.
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is the more expensive model
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen, the more expensive model of the two, will be available in 13.3 and 15-inch display sizes. It comes with an S Pen in the box and has a slot in the laptop to store it. The Notebook 9 Pro, on the other hand, sports a 13.3-inch display and trades the S Pen for an Active Pen that supports up to 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The Notebook 9 Pro will be available for purchase on Best Buy and Samsung.com at a starting price of $1,099. The Notebook 9 Pen starts at $1,399 and will be available on Amazon and Samsung websites. Customers purchasing the Notebook 9 Pen on Samsung’s online portal between March 17 to 31 will get a $100 eCertificate from the company that can be to buy PCs or PC accessories.
