SideSync lets you beam your smartphone’s screen to your PC, while PC Gallery and PC Message are useful for quickly accessing your Galaxy phone’s photos and texts. A built-in online support tool provides fast customer service. On the downside the keyboard can seem to be a bit shallow. The lighter design may also cause some to feel the machine sort of sink as they type a document or answer a bevy of emails.
Pricing for the Notebook 9 starts at $1199.99, which gets you the aforementioned Intel Core i7-7500U CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and Intel HD 620 graphics. The extended model adds 16 GB of RAM and a graphics card upgrade for a few hundred dollars more. While some may be set off by a chassis that seems a little too flimsy and flexible, others will appreciate the high level of performance the Samsung Notebook 9 will deliver. All in a thinner and lighter package.
