Samsung has launched the Notebook 7 spin in the U.S. The 2-in-1 notebooks are available in screen sizes of 13.3 inches and 15.6 inches, and are sold in both enterprise and consumer editions.
The notebooks offer Windows 10 Pro out of the box (consumer version comes with Windows 10 Home), with the 13.3-inch model powered by a 2.30GHz Core i5 6200U CPU, whereas the 15.6-inch version runs the 2.50GHz Core i7 6500U CPU. The 13.3-inch variant has a Full HD display, Intel HD Graphics 520, 8GB of RAM at 2133MHz, and a 500GB mechanical HDD.
The 15.6-inch model also has a Full HD display and 8GB of RAM at 2133MHz, along with a 1TB HDD and a 128GB SSD and an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX video card with 2GB DDR3L memory.
Both variants offer stereo speakers, backlit keyboards, one HDMI out, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, and a USB-C port. The 13.3-inch Notebook 7 spin is now available for $899 and the 15.6-inch for $1,299 from Samsung's business site (opens in new tab).

I see Samsung is still shameless as ever.
That's not a gaming computer by any means
The design. LOL
It's like they somehow found a way to take the worst elements of an Apple and a Chromebook and turn it into a simi-functional product.
Thank you for getting it. So many lawsuits later (and this extremely obvious attempt to imp the MacBook), I hoped specifying wouldn't be necessary.
I'm seeing it for $799.
No SSD is a nonstarter.
Who makes laptops without SSDs these days? The SSD should be standard with the option to swap to a high capacity HDD if needed.
+1000 on the issue of the lack of an SSD option on the 13" model and the SSD topping out at 128GB on the 15.6" model. Is this 2014 or 2016? I mean, if the 13" model were $499, okay, maybe.
Way too expensive for what you get.
