All that said, if you're primarily looking for a convertible laptop with good performance and battery life, will only use the pen occasionally, and are hopeful about updates improving pen input, the 13-inch Notebook 9 Pro is worth considering, especially if the price remains at $899. But at the $1,099 price that you'll find if buying from Samsung directly, we think this convertible is a bit overpriced for this crowded market.
