Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) Launched at CES 2018: Specifications, Features

Samsung Electronics America will unveil at CES the Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018), a notebook designed for working professionals, students and those looking for entertainment. There is no update on the pricing of the hybrid laptop. However, the Active Pen will not be bundled along with the notebook.

The Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) sports a 13.3-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) PLS display. The 2-in-1 laptop is incredibly light at just 995g (2.2 pounds) and thin at just 0.64 inches, making it easier to carry around when you are traveling. The moments I spent with the Notebook 9 Pen were perfectly snappy and indicated that it would slot into my daily workflow without issue, but this since this still non-final hardware, you'll have to wait for a more complete verdict.

The Notebook 9 Pen has a sturdy all-metal magnesium aluminum design and runs Windows 10. Similarly, I had no real issues with the 13.3-inch 1080p display - my only real concern is that at max brightness, it's not quite as bright as either of the other Notebook 9 models Samsung talked up ahead of the show. Its battery is also said to provide long life, so users could stay connected all day. At the heart of the device is an 8th-gen Intel Core i7, backed by generous amounts of RAM-up to 16GB depending on the model-and a 512GB SSD. Connectivity-wise, you get 1x USB-C, 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI, and 1x headphone/microphone port. It also features a precision touchpad and a backlit keyboard with 1.5mm keystroke and curved keycap. And what better way to while away those precious moments between classes than using the S Pen to make GIFs by capturing snippets of video on-screen. Think of its tablet mode as a convenient bonus.

The stylus may feel too small for people with big hands. You can record lectures and conversations using Voice Note and jot down notes using the S Pen simultaneously. Considering it will be competing against Microsoft's Surface Book series, we expect the Notebook 9 Pen to undercut Microsoft's laptop.
