They'll take all three judges' blind scores and I've been out there have been found the final prize fight -- Will be an average of all rounds in the same system lets get this party started round one is design. -- define the series night and it's come into its own for the smaller footprint and a sleeker thinner design from previous generations. That no longer reminds you of a MacBook Air. It's all aluminum body weighs in at two point six pounds with an improved -- -- for thirteen inch screen with a slimmer Basil. So this feels smaller than some of the twelve inch laptops we've -- and it's hands down the best looking to -- -- on the market. -- this -- is known for their TV sets. But their first entry into the laptop world is a fresh take on the category the CP -- team has a thicker body with his fourteen inch screen. But it brings a modern sense of designs and a rubberized case with a sturdy -- -- first entry business held its own original design but it's still just not eye popping up in the -- for the world.

So what we put these cute there -- video playback battery drain test the results speak for themselves. Samsung's new series night brings the best battery life we've seen on a recent -- -- but I close to seven hours just behind the MacBook air and -- deal on the other hand.
