Samsung confirms high end Macbook Air competitor

Tonight in Korea, Samsung has confirmed the release of their new ultra-thin laptop Samsung 9 Series aiming at directly competing with Apple’s Macbook Air and staking their claim in the high end mobile computing market. This announcement comes as Apple announces their “special event” on March 2nd most likely to confirm the Apple iPad 2 release.

Originally leaked at the International Consumer Electronics show, it was originally believed to be a 13.3 inch device with an Intel Core i5 processor but was confirmed just a little while ago as an 11.6 inch device with an Intel Core i3 processor with 2GB of memory, Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI output, USB and microSD ports.

We know how you Realtors love new gadgets, so hold on to your socks- this sexy device is only 0.7″ thick and weighs under three pounds with Samsung claiming it has superior battery life! It is reportedly offered at $1165 (although we have not confirmed this is the final shelf price).

The Samsung 9 Series is set to launch in Korea this month followed by Europe and the United States next month.


Many Apple competitors are stepping up their game to reclaim market share ranging from low end to high end and several devices have been announced for a 2011 release. Our research here at AGbeat shows that many real estate insiders are waiting until these devices hit the market and the proverbial chips fall before making their next electronic purchase, and this is certainly a possible contender for the real estate industry.

    🙂 linking my chops 🙂
    I’m a fan of Samsung products. I have the Galaxy S phone and a TL220 camera. I’ve never owned a MAC and the Air is SOO sexy, but I skipped it when I got a new computer recently. I went for the affordable Toshiba Poretge R705 which is also very light weight. I like it so far, but the keyboard is a little chintzy.
