Samsung has just lifted the veil on new laptops. Bearing the name Notebook 7 , they strangely resemble the Cupertino's MacBook Pro .
While Apple has just started its WWDC 2019 conference, it may have its head elsewhere. And for good reason, Samsung has just announced new ultrabooks that are largely reminiscent of the MacBook Pro. According to The Verge , there will be 13 and 15 inch versions. Powered by Windows 10, the Notebook 7 has a large touchpad. Their screen is surrounded by thin frames, giving them a great elegance that will not fail to arouse the curiosity of fans of Apple ultrabooks.
Moreover, Samsung seems to have been too inspired by the products of the American firm to such an extent that the font used on the keyboard and the wallpaper is also reminiscent of that of the MacBook Pro.
However, of the two models, it is the 13-inch diagonal one that most closely resembles the MacBook Pro.
Two new laptops to compete with the iOS publisher?
The rivalry between Samsung and Apple isn't just about smartphone sales. Both companies also manufacture laptops capable of meeting different user needs. Nevertheless, the fact that the chaebol copied the design of the MacBook Pro leads us to ask ourselves questions.
Despite this strong resemblance to Apple's ultrabooks, the Notebook 7 stands out for the number of ports they have on board. Indeed, there are more of them. It is notably a question of two USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port, an HDMI port and a port intended to accommodate a micro SD card.
A starting price of $ 999.99
The Samsung Notebook 7 will be marketed through Amazon and the company's online store from July 26. As for the starting price, it is $ 999.99. Each size comes standard with an 8th generation Intel Core processor, 8GB of RAM, a Full HD panel, and a fingerprint sensor. It will be possible to customize the 15-inch variant by opting for an Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card. There is also the possibility of increasing the storage space thanks to the compatibility with an additional SSD.
For its part, the most expensive version, the 15-inch Notebook 7 Force will be billed at $ 1,499. Something to intrigue MacBook Pro owners. Especially since it has a less powerful battery, 43 Wh, while those of ultraportables from Apple generally have a capacity greater than 80 Wh. Despite this, Samsung promises 16 GB of RAM as well as a GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card.
