Samsung has announced that its second generation Series 9 laptop will be launched on 25 February, touting the device's high-level specifications and all-day battery life.
The device will at first only be sold by John Lewis, retailing for £1,199, with other retailers including Amazon and Dixons then offering the device later this year.
The latest model of the Series 9 was first glimpsed during CES in January. Although not labelled as an ultrabook, the Series 9 has features that make it comparable to devices such as the Asus Zenbook UX31 and Acer Aspire S3 range.
The laptop, which runs Windows 7 Home Premium, is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-2467M dual-core processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and features a 128GB SSD.
To meet the portability needs of business users, the device is just 12.9mm thick and weighs 1.16kg.
The chassis includes a 13.3in 400nit display with a 1600x900 resolution and Samsung has added an anti-reflective coating to the screen making it suitable for use both within offices and outdoors.
The laptop will feature a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a headphone/microphone jack and an SD card slot. Samsung has also included a micro-HDMI port.
The firm claims the device has a battery life of up to seven hours, although a spokesperson told V3 at CES that users can expect around six hours of life when used constantly.
The manufacturer also includes a Fast Boot Feature that allows the device to resume in 1.4 seconds.
