Samsung has announced that the Series 9 Premium with a 128GB SSD is now available to purchase in the US for a price of $1,399.99. The laptop comes with a full HD display and a polished edge, differing from the one we saw release towards the end of March just in its hard drive storage capacity and processor.
Staying on the topic of the screen, the device packs a 13.3-inch display offering up visuals at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. It incorporates the company’s SuperBright technology for a 300-nit brightness coefficient, and runs on an Intel HD Graphics 4000 chipset which ensures that users are kept content in terms of their multimedia experiences.
Besides, the laptop runs on the power of an Intel Core i7-3537U processor (with 4MB of cache) which ticks at a speed of 2.0GHz. Just like the 256GB SSD variant, this one gets 4GB of DDR3 RAM for speedy performance and is attached to the specific model number NP900X3E-A02US. It further comes with 64-bit Windows 8.
802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 are also present and the list of ports includes one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 socket, as well as a micro HDMI port and 4-in-1 card reader. The laptop has a 44Wh, 4-cell, Li-polymer battery which is considered capable of about 9 hours of usage. This stat is cut down to 5.8 hours by the MobileMark 2012 PC benchmark.
The Ultrabook is slightly more than half an inch thick and weighs about 2.56 pounds, making it easy to carry around. And thanks to its aluminum shell body, it is thin and stylish. Several key components including the keyboard, fans, cables, motherboard and battery have been reportedly customized to fit into this sleek body.
In addition, the device will comes with a 1.3MP webcam which can capture stills in HD resolution. And for those who like to get their fill of multimedia crammed into a portable solution, it has two 1.5W stereo speakers for a more immersive experience.
The 128GB Samsung Series 9 Premium Ultrabook can be picked up from several retail channels in the US. Through the device, the company offers a cheaper alternative to those who are willing to sacrifice storage.
