Apple's Macbook Air has been widely praised for its smart, attractive industrial design. Samsung, not to be outdone, showed off their own super lightweight laptop at CES a few months ago. The Series 9 is a great looking laptop with reasonable specs, and it is on sale now .
The Series 9 is a 13-inch PC that weighs under 3 lbs. it is a scant 0.64-inches thick, which is actually slightly thinner that the Macbook Air. The Series 9 has a 128GB SSD by default and 4GB of RAM. At its core is the battery-friendly Core i5 2537 at 1.45GHz. This PC isn't going to light up the night with its speed, but should chug along respectably.
The price may be a deterrent for some at $1649 with Windows 7 Home Premium. The corresponding Air is $50 less. Would you consider spending that amount on a slim and light notebook?
