Samsung 11.6-inch Series 9 now in stock

The thin-and-light laptop now available for $1159 and will not include an Intel Sandy Bridge processor
Allen Ngo,

While the Samsung 13.3-inch Series 9 has been available for quite some time, its smaller 11.6-inch sibling has only been available for pre-order online.

Today, the thin-and-light 11.6-inch Series 9 is now in stock both online and in certain nationwide retailers. Users may have to act quickly, however, before they become out of stock or backordered. For those who are interested, the laptop is currently listed on Amazon for $1159. Although the notebook is on the expensive side, it is nowhere near as outrageous as the $1649 price tag of the 13.3-inch model.

For the premium price, users should definitely expect premium hardware. The 11.6-inch model comes in a durable aluminum chassis, which allows for a thickness of just 0.64-inches (1.62cm) and a total weight of 2.88 pounds (1.30kg). Oddly enough, a Sandy Bridge option is not available as the laptop is equipped with a 1.33GHz Core i3-380UM CPU. Other than that, the notebook ships with a 64GB SDD, 2GB RAM, Intel HD 3000 graphics, 4G radio, HDMI, and a 6-cell battery.

The Samsung Series 9 lineup mainly competes with the Apple MacBook Air in the thin-and-light category.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
