We just published our review of the Samsung Series 9 (NP900) last month, and Samsung is already updating it to make it even more awesome than it already is. Samsung is announcing its flagship laptop will be receiving a 13.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 LED display which is combined with the company’s SuperBright technology to provide a 50 percent increase in its brightness compared to competing screens. Touchscreen has been left of the cutting room floor for the new Series 9 laptop, which could certainly be a deal breaker if that’s what you’re looking for in your laptops these days.
The new Series 9 still retains its astounding slim frame, even though it’s now equipped with a 1080p display as it’s a half-inch thick and weighs in at 2.56 pounds. Its internal specs also include an Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD with Windows 8 as the operating system. Samsung says the new Series 9 will provide up to eight hours of battery life, which is a slight improvement over what we saw with the NP900’s 7-hour battery life. Retailing for $1,899.99, hopefully its 1080p-touchless display will entice you enough to spend that kind of cash.
