Ultra Slim Series 9 Laptop Boasts Stunning Superbright Plus Display,
Long Battery Life and Durable Design
MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 21, 2011 /CNW/ - Samsung Electronics Canada, a
leader in IT innovation, today announced the Series 9, a durable, ultra
premium, lightweight laptop computer. The 13.3-inch Series 9 offers
mobile professionals and power users a sophisticated laptop equally
suited for work and entertainment.
"Style, power, function - the Samsung Series 9 has it all and completely
redefines what a laptop should be," said Peter Grady, Director of Sales
and Marketing, IT Division, Samsung Electronics Canada. "When designing
the premium Series 9 laptop, Samsung wanted to offer an unforgettable
PC experience that didn't compromise on either style or functionality.
The Series 9 laptop successfully combines sleek styling reminiscent of
a sports car, business-class performance and ease of use in an ultra
thin and lightweight package."
The Series 9 is made from Duralumin, which is typically found in
advanced aircrafts and offers construction quality twice as durable as
aluminum, all while keeping the laptop weight under 3 lbs. To develop
the Series 9 with this new material, Samsung created an exhaustive
testing process to ensure that the notebook is not only extremely
sturdy, but also constructed with the perfect look and feel for
technology savvy users.
The Series 9 flowing design takes cues from the sleek styling and
sophisticated beauty of a premium sports car. The silhouette evokes
thoughts of speed and performance with an ultra-thin 0.64 inch profile.
Additionally, the naturally flowing arch maximizes the laptop's
ergonomic appeal, making it easier to use and fit comfortably in the
Ultra Vivid Display
The 13.3-inch Series 9 features a LED-backlit screen, offering users the
highest quality visual experience, thanks to Samsung's SuperBright Plus
display with 400-nit brightness. Digital images and multimedia are
brought to life on the Series 9, assisted by a 100,000:1 contrast ratio
and true-to-life colour reproduction (16 million colours).
Additionally, the wide 160-degree viewing angle allows users to
appreciate superb screen images from a variety of vantages points,
making the Series 9 easy to use whether in a user's lap, on a desk or
shared in a communal space. The laptop's ambient light sensor adjusts
the display brightness based on surrounding lighting conditions and
reduces user eye strain. This innovative feature is complemented by an
auto-adjusting backlit keyboard that adapts to darker light conditions
with greater illumination.
The Series 9 integrates the second generation Intel® CoreTM i5
processor, affording users the latest in performance computer
technology. Intel HD graphics, combined with the new processor, deliver
crystal-clear visuals, vibrant colours and smooth high-definition (HD)
video and audio playback.
Ensuring users are ready anytime anywhere, the Series 9 makes use of
Samsung's new power-efficient lithium polymer batteries, and achieves
up to 6.5 hours of battery life on average. Lithium polymer batteries
extend the life of the product with double the lifespan for up to three
years or 1,000 charging cycles. Additionally, various charging
settings, like a "Battery Life Extender Mode" and "Express Charging
Mode" empower users with options to get the most from their experience.
Plus, avoid time when booting the Samsung Series 9 with Fast Start
technology which starts the laptop in just seconds.
