Price comparison

Design

1.weight

995g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

16.5mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.width

310.5mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.height

206.6mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.Has a flip and fold design
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
A flip and fold design allows you to fold the screen over the keyboard and transform the device into a tablet, without splitting the device into two pieces.

Display

1.resolution

1920 x 1080px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.screen size

13.3"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
3.has a touch screen
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
4.has an LED-backlit display
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
Uses LED backlighting, resulting in better image quality, more vibrant colors and richer blacks.
5.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
6.has an IPS screen
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.

Performance

1.RAM

16GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.RAM speed
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
Flash-based storage devices such as SSDs have no mechanical components. Due to this, they are typically faster, run silently, and are more shock resistant than traditional HDDs.
4.CPU speed

4 x 1.8GHz (Intel Core i7-8550U)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
5.internal storage

512GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
6.maximum memory size
The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.

Connectivity

1.Has USB Type-C
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
3.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
4.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
5.Bluetooth version

4.1

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
6.download speed

300MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.

Features

1.has stereo speakers
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
3.has a front camera
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
4.Stylus included
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
A stylus is a pen-like accessory that allows you to interact with the touchscreen with greater precision, and is particularly useful for drawing and writing.
5.Has a fingerprint scanner
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
The device has a fingerprint scanner which identifies the user.
6.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Miscellaneous

1.has a rechargeable battery
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13"
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.clock multiplier
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
4.SSE version
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
5.bus transfer rate
The bus is responsible for transferring data between different components of a computer or device.
6.uses multithreading
Samsung Notebook 9 Pen 13" (Intel Core i7-8550U)
Multithreading technology (such as Intel's Hyperthreading or AMD's Simultaneous Multithreading) provides increased performance by splitting each of the processor's physical cores into virtual cores, also known as threads. This way, each core can run two instruction streams at once.
