Been hanging out to pickup one of those sexy new Series 9 laptops from Samsung ? Well it looks like Harvey Norman has landed an exclusive deal to be the only retailer in Australia. I’m not quite sure why Samsung would go in this direction, but personally I seriously hope this isn’t a trend that takes off.
The Samsung 900X3A is made from Duralumin, that’s the same material used to build aircrafts and twice as strong as aluminium. So feel free to throw it around, it should be fine. The LED screen is just bright, its SuperBright Plus (double the normal brightness of a 13” laptop) so you may want to dawn the sunnies when using this baby. Like rain sensing headlights on a car, the Samsung 900X3A also has light sensors to adjust the keyboard backlighting for different times of the day. This premium laptop naturally comes with a Core i5, 4GB RAM and a Solid-State Drive, a 120GB drive no less, that makes it boot in just over 20 seconds. Weighing in at a tiny 1.31kg, its actually lighter than a Macbook Air.
So if all that sounds like your next laptop, don’t bother shopping around for the best price, competition is dead.
By the way.. The Samsung Series 9 Laptop sells not for US$1649.99 but an astonishing A$2,498. Wow! indeed Mr Harvey.
