Remember we brought you news last week of the Samsung Series 9 super-svelte 13.3in, duralumin-encased ZX310 laptop shipping in the States, well get ready to meet its even smaller brother, the 11.6in 900X1A.
The 11.6in display on the 900X-1A comes with a resolution of 1366 x 768 and is encased in the same black duralumin as the ZX310. It will come with the Intel Core-i3 processor, 2GB of RAM, a whopping 128GB SSD (the same as its older brother), a backlit keyboard and Windows Home Premium pre-installed. Connectivity-wise the 11in model has all the ports hidden behind sliding panels on either side, containing two USB ports (1 x 2.0, 1 x 3.0), a microSD card slot and a HDMI port.
While we still await European pricing for the larger model, the 11in laptop will go on sale next month at a price of €1,200 (£1,050) which is around £350 less than what we believe the price of the 13in model will be. The 11in Macbook Air which was released just before Christmas retails for about £850 making it considerably cheaper – though that only gets you 64GB of storage, rising to £999 for the 128GB model.
We await official UK pricing for both models and official release dates, but we are currently awaiting delivery of the 13in model in the office to carry out a full review (the first in the UK) and will let you know our thoughts as soon as possible.
