Still using clunky USB-A ports. It is no wonder USB-C is dead in the water, a superb concept, ruined by Microsoft and Apple. The former for not putting it in the Surface Pro tablets and Apple for not switching to it from Lightning in their iOS devices. And now Samsung, who can make some nice hardware, are taking us back to 2015. At least HP, Lenovo and ASUS have seen the light and have released pure USB-C and some Thunderbolt 3 laptops and convertibles.
(I have a totally USB-C centric setup, and like using USB-C to USB-C cables so no faffing around which end goes where and which way up.) Less stress, more happy happy.
It is borderline tragic that a company can come up and say 720p for a desktop interface is enough.
I still daily see 768p widescreen laptops and just wonder how they can fit any productivity into those low resolution screens. 720p and an 8th gen CPU huh, you are not going to utilize that in any way. It is stupid, outdated and should not be bought by anybody but ignorant idiots.
Oh wait, ignorant idiots... I bet those will still outsell the others because of the good specs with a cheap display. Unfortunately.
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2018Small battery? I'd say decent because even most gaming laptops come with just 60wh batteries.
... more- less power consumption
- less space usage
- lower price
Not everyone needs a dedicated GPU. I agree that having one is better than having non, but there are also reason for not having one.

Also, about MX110. Having it is better than having an integrated gpu. Question is, why would you buy something without a dedicated gpu.
Ok I have to leave another comment. I looked through the specs and I saw 720p. SERIOUSLY?! My old ass MacBook Air 11 inch has a higher resolution than this. Even my iPhone 7 4.7 inch, where many Samsung fanboys say that its resolution is sooooo low, has a higher resolution, and it just barely hits the 300ppi mark.

They look not as unproportional as Samsung’s other laptops. A black bezel would have been better still. But I get it if they want to keep it aluminum because of fear that one says they would copy Apple
AnonD-748812, 01 Apr 2018April's fool day hahahaI think yes! Ha ha ha
News with screens for computers spec'd like for TVs in 720p. Sure such notebooks are not for professionals but movie watchers which cannot afford iPads.
From afar it looks like a HP laptop from 2015, for real lol
Samsung's Notebook 9 throttles heavily under load, so if they neglected the fan system, the graphics card may be as useful as the intel integrated graphics.
Surely they will be overpriced, as are their phones. I'm happy with my Core i5 7th generation and 4GB GTX 1050, which didn't cost me much.
Small-ish batteries, no? Especially with NVIDIA graphics card. I can't see why anyone would like to get a laptop with an MX110, except playing old games and having hardware-accelerated video decoding (even if the KabyLake cores have HW decoding supported)
