Samsung Ships $1160 Series 9 Core i3-Based Ultraportable
Samsung's Series 5 Chromebook
stole the show last week, but it's clear
that the Series 9 is a more premium machine. Samsung
's new ultraportable
flagship is finally on sale in America, with a stiff starting price of
$1160. The company just launched pre-orders on the device last month,
and now they're shipping. Great news for those who pre-ordered! The body
is aluminum, and inside there's a Core i3-380UM processor, 2GB of
memory, and a 64GB solid state drive.
It weighs 2.3lbs., and has a 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth 3.0, WiMAX support
and a screen resolution of 1366x768. Enough to warrant a nearly $1200
price tag? Up to you, but boy, it does look beautiful.
