Samsung announced its refreshed Notebook 9 Pen in December, followed by a refresh of the Notebook 9 Pro in January. Today, the company announced availability of the two new PCs, and you’ll be able to pick one up this Sunday on March 17.
Designed for “creators and doers”, both machines are convertibles with Intel’s Whiskey Lake CPUs, or more specifically a Core i7-8565U. The Notebook 9 Pen comes with a built-in S Pen, which is stored in a pen garage that’s placed in the front of the device. The Notebook 9 Pro focuses more on design, with “an exquisite metal exterior, diamond-cut edges, and an ultra-slim body”.
The Notebook 9 Pen comes in three flavors. There’s a 13-inch model for $1,399 that weighs in at just 2.47 pounds, including a 13.3-inch 1080p display, 8GB LPDDR3 memory, and 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD. There are two 15-inch models as well, which also have 1080p screens. For $1,599, you’ll get 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD, and for $1,799, you get dedicated graphics in the form of an Nvidia GeForce MX150 and a 1TB SSD.
The Notebook 9 Pro comes with a 13.3-inch 1080p display, and there are two configurations. For $1,099, you’ll get 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and a 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD, or for $1,299, you’ll get 16GB RAM and 512GB storage.
The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen will be available from Amazon and Samsung.com, and the Notebook 9 Pro will be available from Best Buy and Samsung.com.
