Samsung 15-inch Series 9 ultrabook up for preorder

Written by Peter Scott



14-inch footprint, hefty price tag


Ultrabooks are the new black these days, but users who need a bit more screen acreage are not catered for by the slim and stylish 13-inchers.

Samsung is hoping to change all that with its 15-inch Series 9 ultrabook. It features a 15.0-inch 1600x900 antiglare display, but thanks to a very small bezel, the Series 9 is said to have the footprint of a 14-inch notebook. There is still no word on the exact dimensions or weight, but it looks like the smallest 15-incher to date.

The spec sheet is equally impressive. It is powered by a 1.6GHz Core i5-2467M processor which can hit 2.3GHz on Turbo. It ships with 8GB of DDR3 and a 128GB SSD, along with a single USB 3.0 port and even WiDi support.

It is truly an impressive piece of kit, and we also love the understated design, but it also comes with a hefty price tag - $1,499 in the US.

You can check out one of the listings here.
