Back in December, Samsung officially unveiled the Notebook 9 (2018) series of Windows-powered laptops. Samsung has now officially announced the pricing and availability details for its new notebooks in the United States. The new series will be available for purchase starting February 18.
There are three different models in the Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) series: 13-inch Notebook 9 (2018), 15-inch Notebook 9 (2018), and the Notebook 9 Pen. Each model is available in multiple configuration options, and pricing varies accordingly.
Available for purchase from February 18
The Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) is a traditional clamshell laptop available in both 13.3-inch and 15-inch screen sizes. It sports Intel’s 8th Generation Core processors with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD storage. The 15-inch model adds NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete graphics to the mix. Pricing for the base configuration starts at $1,199.99 and $1,299.99 for the 13-inch and 15-inch models respectively. Both of them will be available on Samsung.com and Amazon.com.
The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is a 2-in-1 360-degree convertible laptop with a 13-inch screen. It comes with Intel’s 8th Generation Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD storage. It sports an embedded S-Pen to take advantage of Windows 10’s inking features. It borrows many pen tricks from the Galaxy Note line-up. It will be available on Samsung.com and Amazon.com as well at a starting price of $1,399.99 for the base configuration.
Samsung also announced the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) in December last year. It’s another 2-in-1 Windows 360-degree convertible laptop with support for Active Pen (sold separately). It’s a cheaper alternative to the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen with a starting price of $899.99. It will be available for purchase at Best Buy (online and in stores) and on Samsung.com.
It goes without saying that pricing for all the models go up if you opt for higher configurations.
