In my opinion, weâ€™ve really got Apple to thank for the whole Ultrabook revolution. If not for the MacBook Air, there probably wouldnâ€™t be any Ultrabook to speak of today. But as far as mobile Windows PCs go, specifically here in the Philippines, itâ€™s the Samsung Series 9 that really got heads turning. There was no Ultrabook to speak of back then, but it was an Ultrabook by heart and by design.
Of course, as time went by, it got somewhat left behind with the official launch and arrival of the new breed ofÂ Ultrabook laptops locally.
But not anymore as Samsung has formally launched the 2012 edition of the Series 9 Ultrabook in the country. Not only is it officially recognized as an Ultrabook and is powered by an Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor, the refreshed Series 9 also comes with several welcome treats – a 15-inch (1600×900) LED display, double the RAM (8GB vs 4GB) of its predecessor, and double the onboard storage (256GB SSD vs 128GB SSD).
And the best part, it’s more goodies at a lower price. Lower SRP compared to its predecessor when it debuted last year, that is.
SRP of the 2012 Samsung Series 9 is Php76,900, three grand cheaper than last yearâ€™s Series 9 Ultrabook.
Cheaper alright, but yeah, still not exactly affordable.
But hey, itâ€™s a 15-inch Ultrabook. With Ivy Bridge under the hood. And a Samsung. So why be surprised with the relatively steep asking price?
