Samsung releases four new Notebook laptops

Samsung has announced four updated laptops, and they're looking pretty high-spec.

The new models are updates to the Samsung Notebook 7 line, with a new metal frame, new speakers, a new touchpad and updated Intel Core processors.

The look is distinctly Apple-esque, from the position of the touchpad to the layout of the keyboard and the design of the screen.
The Notebook 7s have tonnes of ports, including two USB 3.0, a USB-C, HDMI, microSD slot and an audio jack. They also have an inbuilt fingerprint sensor for increased security.

Samsung specifically caters for gamers and creators too. Two of the four new updated models have graphics cards perfect for those after a slightly more substantial GPU.

“The Notebook 7 Force, available in Blade Black, features NVIDIA's latest GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, enabling up to 70% faster speeds than the previous-generation GTX, and it lets users run graphically demanding apps like Adobe Photoshop with ease,” said a Samsung spokesperson. So it looks like a Notebook 7 Force could be a good choice if you’re looking to edit videos or play games.

For those of you who don’t need such a hefty GPU, there are also two regular models. One has a 13-inch screen, the other a 15 inch screen. At 1.28kg and 1.69kg pounds respectively, they’re also fairly light – not bad if you want to go out and about with your device.
Prices start at $999 (AED3,673), and the gaming-ready Notebook Force starting at $1,499 (AED5,500) They’ll be available for pre-order from 12 July, with all models available to buy on 26 July.
