Today at CES 2016, Samsung has announced two new laptops running Windows 10 in both 15- and 13-inch varieties. These are full-powered Ultrabooks with Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors – no Atom or Core M here to be found.

The 13-inch Samsung Notebook 9 comes in at exactly 1.85lbs (840g) and uses an Intel 6th-generation Skylake-U Core i5 or Core i7 CPU with Intel HD520 graphics. There is no word on battery life delivered from the rather meager 30Wh battery, but Samsung says "all day" and highlight the rapid charge system that can give two hours of power in with just a 20-minute charge.
