Here's the new premium notebook from Samsung. I want one if the WIFI issues from the previous generation are resolved. 1600x900 400nit screen, backlit keyboard, no Apple on the lid. I'm in. See the product area at http://www.samsung.com/us/article/the-new-series-9-thin-fast-smart. See the press release for the second generation Series 9 at www.samsungces.com/Common/Include/Download.asp?FileSEQ=1687.
The picture above is of the striking 13" Series 9 model. The new 15" model was demonstrated on stage at CES and sports a couple of USB 3.0 ports and a DB15 VGA port on the left side. We'll get the full specs eventually but Samsung says the 15" model is just over 3 pounds and it's packing a 1600x900 screen in a 14" chassis with their MaxScreen thin bezel design.
