Samsung expands its PC lineup with two new laptops

Samsung is expanding its PC lineup with two new Windows laptops: the Samsung Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force. These are slim and lightweight laptops, but lack touchscreen and 2-in-1 capabilities which are becoming increasingly common on Windows devices. Samsung seems to be keeping those features for its more-expensive Notebook 9 series.

The Samsung Notebook 7 comes in 13 and 15-inch variants and sports what the company calls as ‘Solidity’ design with a metal chassis, diamond-cut edges, and small display bezels. The internals are mostly what you would expect from a modern laptop with Intel 8th Gen CPUs, multiple RAM and storage options, fingerprint scanner, Gigabit Wi-Fi, stereo speakers, etc. The Notebook 7 13 is limited to internal graphics, whereas the 15-inch model offers optional Nvidia GeForce MX250 discrete graphics.

The Samsung Notebook 7 Force is a more powerful machine and is aimed at creators and gamers. It packs Intel 8th Gen CPUs, NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics, up to 24 GB of RAM, Gigabit Wi-Fi, and more. Both the Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force come with FHD displays with no option for a 4K upgrade, which again seems like an odd choice given that these are fairly high-end laptops.

Pricing for the Notebook 7 starts at $999 and Notebook 7 Force at $1,499. They will be available for purchase in the US starting July 26 on Amazon and Samsung.com. Pre-orders begin from July 12 on Samsung’s website. These laptops will also hit the shelves in Korea, Hong Kong, Brazil, and China (only the Notebook 7).

Aren’t they overpriced? No RJ45 in other laptops except the Notebook 7 force. Even $300 laptop has this port.

Even when copying Apple, they still managed to make it look ugly. Also, why is the bottom bezel so large? Just make the screen 3:2.

Samsung don’t copy Apple.
