Samsung goes super slim with Notebook 9 series
Tries to bite into Apple
Samsung released a super-slim notebook today in a bid to compete with Apple's MacBook Air. The company also said it will increase laptop sales by 80 per cent in 2011.
The 13.3in Notebook 9 Series is 16mm thick and weighs 1.3kg. It runs on a Core i5 processor and comes with a seven-hour battery life.
Samsung says it will cost ₩2.49m (£1370) in South Korea, although there's no word on pricing for its European launch, expected in March.
The company has also confirmed it will market an 11.6in Notebook 9, which runs on a Core i3 processor instead, Engadget reports.
In a press conference in Korea yesterday, Samsung said it intends to raise annual laptop sales to 18 million - an increase of eight million units - and aims to move up a notch in the mobile PC market from last year's seventh place in sales rankings. ®
