The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro has a much sharper design

  • Published on Jan 7, 2019
  • Samsung unveiled the Notebook 9 Pro at CES 2019. Samsung’s last few entries into its flagship Notebook 9 lineup have all been plagued by a similar problem: they looked and felt really, really cheap. Even recent models like last year’s Notebook 9 Pen felt and looked more like a $400 Chromebook than a $1,400 professional PC. Samsung is trying to change that with the new Notebook 9 Pro, which actually looks and feels like a flagship laptop again.

    But that's Thunderbolt 3. Not USB-C. Just look at the thunder symbol.

      Thunderbolt is a type of USB-C so he's not wrong, he's just not telling everything.

    The verge should hire people that know about computers to talk about computers. (Especially if they're making a tutorial on building a desktop, hahahhahaha.)

    Terrible review, but almost all computer reviews are just as bad. How about working for a fashion magazine?

    What is the bottom bezel about if they could squeeze the camera at the top?! Aspect ratio?

    Does the bottom bezel really annoy people that much? I would rather have a large bezel at the bottom then what samsung had before.

    This isn't a review, which is why he doesn't list the specs. It's a supplementary video going over the device's aesthetic design. Click the video description, the link next to 'read more here', then read the full article this video is meant to supplement.

    For guys who make infinity displays on phones the bezels on the laptop are extremely poor look at Acer and Asus actually trying to push the envelope

    Really wondering. Is people taking note in landscape position, or in portrait position? Bigger bezel side used to hold/grip the notebook to feel safe and comfort.

    The typing shots are so poorly done. He's typing on a webpage so the page is just scrolling up and down and it looks so incredibly unprofessional.

    For the record I gave this video a like because I go to the verge foe a lot of my tech informational needs. However I feel that this review or first look was so informal. The guy presenting makes me feel that he was thrown into doing a first look at this thing at the last minute and makes me feel like it is a chore to him to have to do this. “Ram and all that good stuff?” Come on. Give us actual specs even if it’s the same. It gives you credibility when you sound like you know what you’re talking about vs an opinion based video. I don’t care about how you feel about it. I want to know how others may feel about it. Be objective.

    I'm sorry but that ridging around the sides makes it look like something from the early 2000s. Disgusting.

    the bottom bezel is necessary so the screen is not low enough, why are you treating it like a phone?
