At Computex 2017, Samsung announced their latest notebook, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro.
This notebook is a 2-in-1 convertible that has a 360-degree hinge that allows for it to close completely and to open all the way into a tablet. It also comes with a Samsung S Pen built-in, which is great for using while the laptop is in tablet mode.
The S Pen has 4,000 levels of pressure sensitivity and the ability to detect tilt like Microsoft's Surface Pen. Samsung also uses their Air Command software for quick launching drawing, notes, and editing documents. The S Pen is also compatible with the latest Windows 10 Creator's update feature, Windows Ink.
Samsung will make the Notebook 9 Pro available in two sizes, 13.3" and 15" with both coming equipped with an Intel Core i7 CPU.
The smaller of the two will feature 8GB of RAM while the larger will ship with 16GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon 450 dedicated graphics chip. All versions will come standard with a 256GB SSD, USB Type-C port, two regular USB ports, HDMI, and microSD.
The keyboard on all versions of the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro will be backlit as well.
One nice feature of the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is that it will come standard with a Windows Hello camera so that users can log in without a password. Thanks to the facial recognition of Windows Hello, users can log into the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro quicker and more securely.
There is still no availability or pricing for either version of the Notebook 9 Pro yet.
