Samsung has come up with two new laptop devices which it has named Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force. The laptops, however, do not break any new grounds with its looks. On the contrary, the laptops could well be mistaken as the MacBook Pro given its similarity with the Apple device, which runs down to even the indentation just in front of the trackpad which makes lifting the display easier.
Then there are 13 and 15-inch models that are identical among themselves too, something that applies to the internal build of the two laptop devices as well. Among the common bits that applies to both the PC includes an 8th gen Intel Core CPU along with a full HD display.
A 720p HD camera and a dual-array mic is also common across the range, as is a backlit keyboard with a dedicated key for fingerprint scanning. A Dolby Atmos-enabled stereo speaker too applies to all the models. All models support a max of up to 512 GB SSD memory though advanced models have an extra SSD expansion slot. The top-end Notebook 7 Force, in fact, features twin slots to accommodate an extra SSD and HDD memory.
Further, all models support up to 16 GB of LPDDR3 memory, save for the top-end Notebook 7 Force which can accommodate a max of 24 GB DDR4 storage. The Notebook 13 and Notebook 15 come with Intel UHD Graphics support while the top-end Notebook 7 15 and Notebook 7 Force NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 1650 respectively.
All models come with a 55Wh battery save for the top-end Notebook 15 Force which has an even smaller 43Wh battery. This leaves some more to be desired given the specs the laptops come with which can be quite demanding on the battery; specifically the models with high-end Nvidia graphics that can be a battery hog.
Prices start at $999.99 for the 13-inch Notebook 7 and $1,499 for the 15-inch Notebook Force. Samsung said the new laptops will initially be available in South Korea, Hong Kong and China while a launch in Brazil and the US is expected sometime later in the year.
