A 15-inch laptop with many of the benefits of an ultraportable, the Samsung Notebook 9 is a chameleonic computer capable of being almost anything you need.

Samsung Notebook 9 Review
Source: Laptop Reviews English
Power and portability both come at a price, and how you balance it matters. And with Notebook 9, Samsung did it quite well, dominating $1500 LG Gram 15 inch in almost every way, and competing well with the MacBook Pro. Also speaking of portability, the Notebook 9 is both thinner and lighter than the MacBook Air.

70% This feature-packed 15-inch laptop makes a few compromises
Source: PC World English
As mentioned earlier, the one area where Samsung prevails is price. A base Dell XPS 15 with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD will set you back $1,500. For the same amount, the Notebook 9 Pro gives you a 4K panel and touch capabilities. To get the same kind of screen on the Dell, you’ll have to fork over almost $2,000. That Dell does give you 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a PCIe SSD, a bigger battery, and a faster GPU. You’re still out another $500, though.

Power and portability both come at a price, and how you balance it matters. The $1,700 Dell XPS 15 and the $1,500 Asus Zenbook UX501 both beat out the Samsung Notebook 9 15-inch in benchmarks, but were considerably more expensive (as-tested) than the $1,200 Samsung is asking for our review unit.

If you want a highly portable laptop with a large display for serious work, web browsing, video watching and more, the Samsung Notebook 9 15-inch is a very good choice. This notebook offers heavy-duty Core i7 power in a superlight design. And while it's not as ridiculously light as the LG Gram 15, this Samsung laptop lasts more than an hour longer on a charge.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
