New Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Offers Affordable Business Option

Samsung has just announced two new versions of its Notebook 9 Pen 2-in-1 PC with a built-in S Pen will be available in 2019.

The revamped versions come shortly after the 2018 release, which didn’t have the traction Samsung was hoping for. The choice of material was primarily responsible for the negative press, but the hefty $1,400 price tag and less than desirable battery life didn’t help either.

For small businesses looking for an affordable 2-in-1 [1] device in 2018, the Notebook 9 Pen didn’t tick all the boxes. The 2019 version seems to have addressed these issues.

This time around Samsung started out with an all metal and aluminum frame to create the durability and ruggedness users were looking for in a portable device. It did this without adding too much weight.

At 2.47lbs and 3.44lbs respectively, the 13” and 15” are not the lightest in the field, but they are also not the heaviest.

In the press release, YoungGyoo Choi, Senior Vice President and Head of the PC Business Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, explained the goal of the company with the new model.

Choi said [2], “With improved design and performance, along with our Notebook’s most advanced S Pen yet, the new Notebook 9 Pen is perfect for contemporary professionals who put especially high demands on their technology.”

In addition to the new metal frame, Samsung says you can now get up to 15 hours of battery life. This is in part made possible with the latest 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor.

Long battery life has become a great differentiator for a workforce which today works outside of the office just as much as they do inside.

It seems like Samsung fixed the issues from the previous version. The only thing missing is how the company will price the Notebook 9 Pen.
