Samsung Series 9 Laptop Is Thinner, Lighter, and Officially More Expensive Than the MacBook Air

Brian Barrett — Samsung’s Series 9 laptop is the first real dart thrown at the MacBook Air; it’s lighter, it’s thinner, it’s faster, and it looks gorgeous. Looks like Samsung’s not going to match Apple on price, though. The 13-inch Series 9 starts at $1,650, fifty bucks more than the most expensive Air and a full $350 more than Apple’s base model. And while you can argue that Samsung’s fit some better specs in, it’s not clear that you’d really ever need more than what the MacBook Air offers outside of hardcore professional use—which it looks the Series 9 can’t handle either.
