Samsung at CES announces 2nd Gen Series 9

Samsung announces 2nd Gen of the Series 9 as thin as ordinal tablets

This is going to be the year of the UltraBooks or Copies of the Apple Air??? :)

Samsung follows suit by announcing the 2nd Generation of their Series 9 Ultra-Books or thin and light series.

Weighing in at 2.5 lbs and only 1/2 inch thick

reduced 30% in size from the first generation

30,000 hour worth of development all crunched down in only 1 year to market

Ultra Fast 8.9 sec boot 2 sec to wake

"More important, is the new 1,600x900-pixel resolution display, which will be available in both 13.3- and 15.6-inch models (the original Series 9 came in 13-inch and 11-inch variants). Samsung says the 15-inch version is squeezed into the equivalent of a 14-inch laptop chassis, making it the "world's thinnest and most compact 15-inch premium notebook."

Unlike some ultrabooks that have been announced but are waiting on some combination of next-gen Intel CPUs and Windows 8, the new Series 9 systems will be available starting February 27, using the current line of Intel Core i-series processors. The 13-inch Series 9 NP900X3B-A01US will be $1,399, while the 15-inch NP900X4B-A02US will be $1,499. These are still premium prices for non-Apple laptops, and with increased competition from $799 ultrabooks, the new Series 9 may still be deemed too expensive by the laptop-buying public."
