A book you definitely judge by its cover

Nov 19, 2012

The shell of the Series 9 is an incredible feat of engineering in itself. Created from a single sheet of aluminum, this notebook is an exquisitely streamlined business tool. The ash black casing was inspired by the natural hues of minerals and has been given a sand blasted finish that resembles grains of sand glittering in the sun. The case is strong and durable and the matt finish has been selected not just for its beauty, but to cut down on fingerprints. And as for the inside, we could go on to tell you how so many different components have been customised for the Series 9, but that's another story.

The shell of the Series 9 is an incredible feat of engineering in itself. Created from a single sheet of aluminum, this notebook is an exquisitely streamlined business tool.

And as for the inside, we could go on to tell you how so many different components have been customised for the Series 9, but that's another story.

 

A big accomplishment,

…in fact our biggest to date. Our engineers, in their infinite wisdom, created the Series 9 memory chip with excellent data capability for advanced business functionality. This means a 128GB SSD Drive that provides plenty of storage and without moving parts, it boots with impressive speed. What's more, all of this power is in a chip around the size of a twenty cent coin. And that's just where the story starts.

 

Passion

It drives people to create truly amazing things. Our dedicated team of Samsung engineers spent the equivalent of 275 days crafting the LCD screen for the Series 9. What's even more impressive though is where they started on day one. They set about creating a screen that displayed the natural colours of life. So they looked to nature for inspiration. The end result is a tailor-made LCD screen that displays over 16 million life like colours, bringing perfect vision to your business. And that's only part of the story.

 

A story 33,000 hours in the making.

Simple stories can be incredibly powerful. None more so than they story of Series 9. The design inspired by simply folding a piece of paper in half marked the first chapter in the creation of our thinnest laptop. Super-slim components have been tailor-made to work seamlessly in our most streamlined notebook to date. With meticulous attention to every detail, it's no wonder it took around 33,000 hours of crafting, research and testing to bring you the professional advantage.

 

A piece of paper inspires our thinnest notebook yet.

However, this time it wasn't what was sketched or written down. One of our engineers simply folded a sheet of paper and thought that it was a really clean, slim-line look. And that's how Samsung's thinnest laptop was born, crafted from a single sheet of aluminum. This simple idea created an exquisitely portable business notebook.

 

There’s always more to the story.

It's amazing how the more you look, the more you'll find inside the Samsung Series 9, like our cooling system. Now you can breeze through your work with not one, but two quiet-running fans. Just another reason you'll love every piece of the Series 9.
