Samsung's S Pen-equipped Notebook 9 Pro is now available

Samsung's new Notebook 9 Pro, which comes equipped with the company's signature S Pen stylus, is now available. Anyone interested in Samsung's latest entry in the notebook sphere can pick one up through Best Buy (opens in new tab) now.

The biggest draw with the Notebook 9 Pro is the inclusion of the S Pen. Built to work with Windows Ink, the S Pen packs 4,000 levels of pressure, which nearly matches the Surface Pen's own 4,096 levels of pressure. Samsung has also thrown in its Air Command software for easy access to taking notes and drawing. When not in use, the S Pen can be tucked away in a dedicated spot under the keyboard.

As for specs, the Notebook 9 Pro comes in 13.3-inch (opens in new tab) and 15-inch varieties (opens in new tab). Inside, you can get up to Intel's Core i7 processors and 256GB of SSD storage. The 13.3-inch model packs 8GB of RAM, while the 15-inch model comes with 16GB. Finally, the larger model packs a little extra graphical horsepower with AMD Radeon 540 graphics.

Both models are up for grabs now at Best Buy, with prices starting at $1,099 for the 13.3-inch model or $1,299 for the 15-inch variant.

  • Definitely a beautiful laptop and solid build. But considering for just $100 more than the 15" you can get the HP Spectre x360 15.6" with everything this has plus a thunderbolt 3 port, and UHD 4k display, and a PCIe SSD, then that makes this seem about $200 over priced. I would suggest waiting till it drops to $1,100 then would be good for that price.
  • And for just another $100 more you can get the Lenovo Yoga 720 15" I got, which has everything the Spectre x360 has... plus an Nvidia 1050 and a quad core. Further showing the Samsung is over priced by at least $200.
  • You have a good point here.
  • I had to look that lenovo up, no idea a quad core had been put into a 2 in 1 with stylus support. Does it include the stylus? And everyone should know by now samsung devices tend to carry a premium like Apple and Microsoft compared to the competition. Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo tend to have better bang for buck products.
  • Yep it supports a stylus! But sold separately. The Lenovo WACOM stylus are on Amazon for just $27. The Lenovo Yoga 720 is definitely the best deal of any quad core lap top on the market. Not just 2 in 1 laptops, but best deal of ANY quad core laptop. I highly recommend you check it out. I love my 4K Lenovo Yoga 720. Basically identical specs to the $2,000 XPS 15 for $500 less. Sure HP and Dell and Lenovo and Asus and Acer all have cheaper less quality stuff. However over the past 3-4 years every single one of those manufacturers has come out with 1 or 2 very premium laptops that competes with Apple and Microsoft. For example Dell's premium line is XPS, and HP's premium line is Spectre, Lenovo's premium line is the Yoga 910 and now the Yoga 720. I don't think anyone can pick up a XPS13, or XPS15, or Spectre X360 or a Lenovo Yoga 720 and say they are not very premium. Unless they just have no clue what they are talking about or lying through their teeth lol.

    As someone who values build quality and reliability above all else, and after using all of the ones you listed, I personally wouldn't use any of them. Each had stupid little flaws (again, to me) that I just couldn't look past. Apple's perfect build quality has ruined me.
  • Just cause each had 1 little thing tjat bothered you doesn't mean they arent premium. But i understand your point. I know you complained about the track pad on like every windows laptop. But thats mostly a preference thing as you said.
  • I had forgotten about the Yoga 720. Lenovo's site is currently running a web special for $1099 that is unbeatable. Latest i7 QC, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD and a 2GB 1050 GTX GPU. The $1499 version gets you a 512GB SSD and 16GB of RAM, still an amazing deal for these set of specs.
  • I personally do not like the FHD 1080p display on the Yoga 720. Its not bad, but its also not very good. Way better than any TN panel, but theres lots of better IPS 1080p displays on laptops today. But their 4K display I got on my Yoga 720 is gorgeous!!! Also It might be only $1400 again for july 4th weekend sales.
  • I know you complained about the track pad on like every windows laptop.
    LOL. I see I've made a name for myself.
  • Looks nice, but is still overpriced for what you get. SATA SSD, no Thunderbolt 3, no RAM or screen options, etc.
  • Exactly. Minus $200$-300 would be more fair. Preferably $999. That would be right on point for the 15 inch.
  • I like how everyone is realizing the lack of Thunderbolt 3 in something this expensive in 2017 makes it feel overpriced. Same applies to especially the Surface Laptop.
  • True, but is it really that useful right now? The external GPU is one of the main reasons I see people wanting it but the mobile processors aren't powerful enough for high end gaming anyway.
  • People forget that thunderbolt 3 is NOT only for an external GPU. Anyone who wants to run two 4k displays from their laptop can not unless it has a thunderbolt 3 port. Two 4k displays is not a uncommon need today for photographers, graphic designers, and videographers. So many people need it for a thunderbolt 3 port for reason.
  • I was reading that it is shipped with Windows 10 Home, kinda funny, Pro model with Home :) But I guess to keep the price down it is a good move.
