We've all seen this guy, the on the go business or creative type struggling slump shouldered across the street.
Because they're lugging a giant 15 inch laptop that weighs five pounds or more.
Because sometimes you need more than a small 13 inch screen.
Or you just want a full-powered, all-day laptop.
That's why I love the current trend towards fifteen-inch laptops that have big, high-res screens but are also very slim and light.
The Samsung Notebook 9 is one of the newest of these And among the least expensive.
Now, it's not as light as the LG Gram series.
It doesn't have the really cool bezel-free design of the Dell SPS 15, and it doesn't have the battery life of the 15-inch Macbook Pro.
But it does come close in each of these categories.
It's a good middle of the road laptop that weighs less than a Macbook Air It's more safe than exciting, but it's also usually just $1,199, with a core I7 CPU and a big 256 gig solid-state drive, and it's even discounted right now to $1,099 making it an even better deal.
