Samsung Series 9 comes in 11.6″ too!
When Samsung launched their ultra-thin Series 9 laptop in the Philippines last week, they only showed the regular 13.3″ variant. I thought it’s such a waste they didn’t include a 11.6″ variant that would go head-to-head with the 11-inch Macbook Air.
Turns out they did a 11-incher too (as reported here) with better specs than the Mac Air equivalent.
The specs is similar to the 13.3″ Series 9, though with lower SSD capacity:
Samsung 9 Series 11.6
11.6â€³ display at 1366Ã—768
Intel Core i5 Processor 2537M @ 1.40 GHz (Turbo Boost up to 2.3 GHz)
Intel HD GT2 Integrated Graphics
4GB DDR3 RAM
64GB Solid State Drive (SSD)
Windows 7 Home Premium/Professional (64 bit)
3 watt (1.5watt x 2) stereo speakers & 1.5watt sub-woofer
Lithium Polymer, up to 6.5 hours
The 13-inch model has a suggested retail price of Php79,999 ($1,599 in the US) so I’m guessing the $1,199 price of the 11.-inch variant will end up selling for Php59,999 when it hits the local market.
