Samsung Notebook 9 Design
The sleek, light chassis of Samsung Notebook 9 is a good MacBook impression, but there is not much. I am a big fan of simplified, silver design of laptops – nothing more than a bright Samsung logo on the lid – but its magnesium-alloy chassis is very cheap and bandaged for a premium notebook
Fortunately, Samsung Notebook 9 ‘s wing makes it an excellent travel companion with a 2.73-pound body and impressive slim 0.61-inch edges. Compared to similar speeds MSI Prestige PE60 (5.4 pounds, 1.1 inches) compared to HP Specter X360 (4.4 pounds, 0.7 in.) And low winters, it is very thin and lightweight. In 15-inch machines, only LG Gram 15 (2.16 pounds) is lighter than Samsung.
Considering how many laptops are locking in favor of slimness, I get a healthy amount on the thin edges of notebook 9. On the left side, USB 2.0 port, headphone jack, a USB Type-C port and a power input, while two USB 3.0 ports, a MicroSD card reader and one HDMI port sit on the right.
