“The design features of these laptops are so identical to that of the MacBook Pro.”
Samsung has announced a couple of new laptops just ahead of WWDC 2019. These laptops that go by the name ‘Notebook 7’ looks very similar to Apple’s MacBooks, they look so similar that you don’t even have to squint.
The Notebook 7 comes with two different screen sizes, 13-inch and 15-inch and it will feature (of course) Windows 10. The design features of these laptops are so identical to that of the MacBook Pro. The laptop features diamond-cut edges, a slim bezel and a massive trackpad.
Out of the two models of the Notebook 7, the 13-inch seems to be the laptop that is very (very) identical to the Apple’s MacBook Pro with its center-aligned trackpad and its keyboard alignment and well, everything else about the laptop as well 🤷🏽♂️. Whereas, the 15-inch (as you can see in the above image) ruins the whole illusion of having the very identical look of a MacBook Pro by having a number pad on the right-hand side of its keyboard.
However, unlike the MacBook Pro, the Notebook 7 features a lot of useful ports rather than just having USB-C ports. The Notebook 7 includes 2x USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port, a microSD slot, and an HDMI port. So which means you don’t have to switch to a dongle life, you can seamlessly just connect your external monitor directly to the HDMI port or your pen drive or external hard disk to the laptop’s USB 3.0 port.
Notebook 7 will start at LKR 176,528 ($999.99) and will be available in the US on 26th of July on Amazon and on Samsung’s online store, there is no news on when these laptops will come to Sri Lanka 🇱🇰although you could get it through Amazon if they ship to Sri Lanka 🇱🇰. Each of these sizes will feature an 8th Gen processors, 8GB of RAM, 1080p screens and a fingerprint sensor (which is that blue button you see in the keyboard). The 15-inch model can be customized to include an Nvidia’s GeForce MX250 graphics card, along with support for the installation of Solid State Drive (SSD) for a faster experience.
Samsung also has another rig which is known as the “Notebook 7 Force” which will feature only the color black (the above image). It comes only in 15-inch and is very similar to the Notebook 7, although for this the ‘Razer Blade‘ is a better laptop to compare with. This laptop costs LKR 264,618 ($1,499). For this whopping price increase, you get Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card and a 16GB RAM by default along with an ethernet port and two slots for storage expansion.
