Under 1 kg. The 13.3-inch Samsung Notebook 9 Pen focuses on three strengths: weight, brightness, and S Pen support.

A letdown. Dell's new convertible is a bitter disappointment, at least in the configuration we have tested. It is even more frustrating that the device has the potential to be a great laptop, but it has been let down by several vital failings.
