Samsung has stolen the title of the thinnest laptop in the planet from Acer Aspire S5 by revamping the Series 9 premium laptop at CES 2012.
The new Series 9, the Samsung Series 9 900X3B, measures just 14.9mm thick at the thickest and 1.59kg, if you go for the 15″ model, and a mere 12.9mm and 1.16kg if you’re happy enough with a 13-inch screen.
Either way you’re looking at a second generation Intel Core CPU with a Core i5 at the very least. There’s up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage on an SSD and as narrow a bezel as possible to maximise your screen size while minimising the chassis. In fact, even the screen itself has been improved and is now labeled an HD+ SuperBright Plus that promises to be 180 per cent brighter than the last incarnation with a 160 degree viewing angle.
When it’s coming and how much for, we don’t know, but luxury brand Valextra will be creating a customised leather case for you to buy along with it just in case the price tag isn’t enough already.
