The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is the convertible laptop that screams for you to draw with your S Pen
Samsung has long been developing a line of really competent laptops, but now it has made a singular qualitative leap: the launch of the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is a convertible model that stands out for the protagonism of the S Pen that debuted with the Galaxy family smartphones Note that now also comes to these models.
That is the differential feature of a notebook with a screen that rotates 360 degrees to become a tablet in which to take notes or draw with that pen that offers in Windows all the features that already offered in Android, including the support of Air Command.
Hard to ask for more in hardware
The Samsung Notebook Pro is available in 13.3 and 15 inch versions, and in both cases we will have Intel Core i7 processors from the Kaby Lake family. Memory ranges from 8 to 16 GB, while a 256 GB SSD is included and the 15-inch model features a dedicated graphics card AMD Radeon 450.
The connectivity section also highlights the use of the USB-C port, but in Samsung do not forget to include two traditional USB 3.0 ports (that is, with the USB-A connector), plus an HDMI port and a slot for microSD cards.
The presence of a webcam with support for Windows Hello completes some really remarkable solutions that of course do not forget a backlit keyboard and touchpad of more than decent proportions for that pure productivity experience.
Welcome to laptops S Pen
The big star is however the S Pen, which is coupled thanks to a hole in the bottom of the notebook to not lose it at any time. This pen offers 4000 levels of pressure and even that inclination sensor that we saw in the new Surface Pro and allows shading when drawing.
In Samsung have even moved the Air Command feature, which coupled with the technology Windows Ink allows you to take notes quickly at any time in all kinds of documents we are working.
We are therefore faced with a proposal especially interesting for those looking to go beyond the convertible tablet format of the Surface Pro. Samsung gives here the lap of the tortilla with a team that gives prominence to that facet without forgetting his personality of traditional laptop.
The company, yes, has not yet given availability dates and prices for laptops that undoubtedly strengthen its good reputation in this segment.
