One of the buzzwords for CES this year is “ultrabook”. Most of the big computer companies are gunning for Apple’s MacBook Air niche and Samsung is no exception.
Last year the company released the original series 9 but they’ve seriously updated the new one. It comes with a Core i7 processor and a high resolution 1600 x 900 display. It’s also smaller than last year’s model at 12.3 x 8.6 x 0.4 inches and weighs 2.6 pounds. That .4-inches is how thick the laptop is.
They’ve made it sleeker and shinier looking as well with all new metal hinges and a matte gray aluminum look. The designer of the new Series 9 discusses the design and the build of the new laptop in the video above.
