Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) announced

Ahead of CES 2018 where we usually see these laptops, Samsung has announced its refreshed the Notebook 9 series of convertibles with spec bumps in almost every area. While the Notebook 9 Pen is a 2-in-1 PC with the S-Pen, the Notebook 9 (2018) is a more conventional laptop. It's a pretty versatile and powerful one, though, with a 360-degree hinge allowing you to rotate the keyboard behind the 13.3-inch "RealViewTouch" display, 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processing muscle, up to 16GB RAM, and a maximum of 512GB storage. In spite of the jam-packed specs, the laptop only weighs 2.2 lbs since it is made of the light material known as "Metal 12", an alloy made of magnesium and aluminum. Both also have 1,920 x 1,080 displays and Intel HD Graphics, while the 15-inch model can be configured with Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics. The all-new S-Pen offers 4.096 levels of pressure with a fine 0.7 mm tip and provides tilt detection that's fit for natural writing and drawing experience. S Pen shortcuts are automatically available when the stylus is removed from the laptop; the system also automatically launches Autodesk's Sketchbook app and Samsung Notes. Unique among the three, it features an IR camera that supports Windows Hello facial recognition sign-in.

The Samsung Notebook 9 (2018) will be available first in South Korea and in select countries sometime later this month, while the United States will get them sometime during the first quarter of 2018.

The 2018 Consumer Electronics Show isn't technically set to begin for three more weeks, but it's never too early to start building excitement around new products headed for Las Vegas exhibition stands. These models feature 720p HD front-facing camera and are fitted with fingerprint scanner for security.

Additionally, there's two USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port, an HDMI port, and a microSD card slot on both models, while the 15-inch variant gains another USB 2.0 port.

Snow, Icy Roads Could Impact Friday Rush Hour Commute
Light snow (with potential large impact due to sub-freezing road temperatures) is POSSIBLE between 1pm and 5pm Friday afternoon. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Lake and Porter counties through 11 a.m.

In 2016, the Samsung Notebook 9 didn't have any particular improvements in its design.

Samsung and LG are both focusing on the battery life this year, just a week after the launch of the first two Windows on ARM devices from HP and Acer that claim to offer up to 20 hours of battery life.

LG is revealing the 2018 Gram notebook today.

Samsung has updated its lightweight Notebook 9 series from 2017 with Intel's 8th generation Core i7 chips.
