Slim, Intel Core i7, Super Bright HD Screen: Is this an ultrabook?
No, but as good as.
Meeet Samsung’s new Notebook Series 9.
Samsung 15″ / 13.3″ HD+ SuperBright Plus screen Notebook unleashed in Oz today is powered by Intel Core i5 or i7 processor.

The new Samsungs boot up faster than their predecessor with Fast Solutions technology. Its reflective resistant display means its good to go even outdoors, has 8GB memory and a 128GB SSD (no bigger than an Australian 20c coin).
Users also get “outstanding control” with the large multi-touch clickpad with image sensor, say it makers.
33,000 Hours of R&D went into the Series 9 development, says Samsung, and components such as the LCD panel, keyboard, motherboard, cables, fans and battery have been crafted with absolute precision to fit into the thin single shell body.
Samsung’s compact chassis technology, MaxScreen, minimises the bezel size and increases the screen by up to an inch more than its predecessors.
“The Samsung Series 9 is part of an evolution in engineering and design, almost every piece both inside and out has a story,” said Tony Ignatavicius, Director – IT Division at Samsung Electronics Australia.
“The Samsung Series 9 is one of the first Samsung notebook available with 3rd generation Intel Core i5/i7 processor making it easy for Australian’s to enjoy performance and usability.
“The Mineral Ash Black body of the new notebooks has been sand-blasted to achieve a fingerprint resistant surface.”
Notebook Series 9 is going for A$1599 for the 13.3 inch and $1899 for the 15″.
