Samsung 9: Meet the MacBook Air's Evil Stepbrother

The new Samsung 9 laptop has PC enthusiasts going gaga.

Many computer users complain that they have so few choices when it comes to stylish, lightweight computers made from strong materials. The Samsung 9 may be the computer that fits the bill. It is lighter and thinner than the Apple MacBook Air. It packs a 1.4GHz second-gen Core i5 processor and a battery that lasts up to 6.5 hours, along with 4GB RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive. Gizmodo said that with its "black metal finish and sleek curves, it looks like it belongs on the deck of the Death Star."

The material used for the body looks very unique, so you might be interested to learn just what the 9 is made of. The material is called Duralumin, and it's typically found in high end aircrafts and is twice as durable as aluminum. It looks freaking awesome, as well.

The more you dig the more you find that the Samsung 9 is well equipped. For just one of many possible examples, its screen is LED-backlit with a high quality SuperBright Plus display featuring a 160-degree viewing angle. That means its easier on your eyes when you're banging out that midnight brief.

High style and performance doesn't come cheap, however. The Samsung 9 is $1600, but for that price, it may be the most stylish and powerful option. Don't get too excited just yet, however, as the 9 doesn't go on sale until February.

Samsung said in a press release that the, "9 Series offers mobile professionals and power users a sophisticated laptop equally suited for work and entertainment ... The 9 Series laptop successfully combines elegant styling, performance and ease of use in an ultra thin and lightweight package."
