Notebook 9 Always is available in two sizes, 13.3-inch and 15-inch. With a cool, streamlined magnesium alloy body, this notebook is elegantly sleek and light. Security and endurance is heightened with fingerprint log-in and innovative charging capabilities, bringing users both efficiency and comfort. Notebook 5 offers 15.6-inch and 13.3-inch options, with Full HD detail and easy memory upgrade.

 

Light yet strong notebooks built with extra comfort

The all-new Notebook 9 Always is easy to carry anywhere. Made of a super light metal magnesium alloy, the weight has been minimized to just 799g for the 13.3-inch and 980g up for the 15-inch. The Single Shell Body design compacts components and maximizes hardness and durability, making the notebook more robust. Samsung has also employed Micro Arc Oxidation technology on computers for the first time. This technology causes the alloy surface to react and generate a ceramic-like coating, enhancing strength and resistance to corrosion.

 

Innovative charging for an expanded mobile experience

Samsung understands consumers’ expectations of battery endurance, and has therefore equipped Notebook 9 Always with innovative battery and charging. Notebook 9 Always supports innovative portable battery pack charging and fast charge. Notebook 5 13.3-inch also supports Fast Charge. Users only need to charge 90 minutes for a 10-hour usage[1], perfect for outdoor engagements.

Like every Samsung product, the notebooks are designed with comfort in mind. Both the Notebook 9 Always and the Notebook 5 are equipped with ergonomic curved keycaps that enhance the typing experience. Furthermore, the Notebook 5 keyboard equals that of a full-size desktop keyboard. An aluminum palm rest improves typing accuracy and offers a more relaxed experience overall.

 

Powerful security and connectivity

The Notebook 9 Always comes with a fingerprint sensor that enables quick login through Windows Hello with a gentle touch. For speedy data transmission and connectivity to other devices, it has a USB Type-C port and special software that helps users to better share life’s special moments.

 

The Notebook 9 Always and Notebook 5 also enhance connectivity between a user’s computer and smartphone for the ultimate mobile experience. With PC Message, users can send and receive messages as if using a smartphone. PC Gallery allows auto-synchronization of pictures in the smartphone to the computer. TeamPL (Team Play) lets users share a screen with up to 6 other users for a group meeting, while Simple Sharing can be used to send and receive supported files on a user’s notebook to people in their phone contacts via Windows 10. Notebook 5 has an additional feature, Wi-Fi Transfer, allowing users to share directly to another compatible PC or mobile device without Internet connection.
