While it is impossible to tell at times who is better in the race of smart phones, Samsung is clearly starting to broaden its technological horizon by paying a considerable amount of efforts in perfecting its Notebook range. Samsung’s sleek and advanced Svelte Notebook 9 has been making headlines all over the world. So, does it really live up to the hype?
The Verge had raved about the “thin-and-light” Samsung Notebook 9 range when it was introduced in the market. It was a mystery to everyone as to how a battery could fit into the cardboard thin Notebook since the creators had mainly focused (and aced) on making it almost weightless. Hence, battery backup was definitely the main issue that needed to be addressed. The Windows 10 powered Notebook 9 did promise one close to 12 hours of battery back-up, though.
- Feather-light: The light-weight of the Notebook 9 is definitely one it’s biggest advantages as it is super-portable, without making one’s backpack bulky, like a normal 15-inch laptop is used to doing. In fact, it is even thinner and lighter than MacBook Air!
- A Good number of ports: One would think that with the Notebook 9 being so thin, it would hardly have the side space to incorporate more than one or two ports. But the genius behind its design has managed to squeeze in 8 ports into its sides, 5 on its left and 3 on the right, including 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, and a microSD port!
- Oh-So-Speedy: Equipped with 256 GB of storage, 8GB RAM and an Intel Core i7 processor, there is no slowing down this beast of a machine.
- Battery-life Okay-ish: Meeting its target of delivering half a day of battery life is a tall ask from such a cardboard-thin device. But it does deliver a decent 8-10 hours after which it needs to be recharged. Recharging it is a breeze, however, since it only takes about 90 minutes to reach its optimum potential again.
