Samsung Notebook 7 Spin Delivers Upgradeability To Windows 10 2-in-1 Convertible Party

Notebook 7 Tent
Samsung is expanding its presence in the Windows 10 2-in-1 convertible market with the new Notebook 7 Spin lineup. Available in both 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch screen sizes (both with 1080p screen resolutions), the Notebook 7 Spin features a 360-degree hinge that allows the convertible to operate in laptop, tablet, and tent modes depending upon your needs.

No matter which one you select, you’ll find two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 port, a lone USB-C port, microSD reader and HDMI. Both convertibles also come standard with a 1TB hard drive and those that opt for the 15-inch model gain a GbE port for hard-wired network connectivity.

Things really start to diverge when we talk about processor and GPU options. The base 13.3-inch model will be sold in just one configuration that includes an Intel Core i5-6200U processor, 8GB of RAM and integrated Intel graphics for $799. The 15.6-inch Notebook 7 Spin, however, comes swinging out of the gate with a Core i7-6500U processor, 12GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX dedicated GPU for $999.  The $1,199 range-topping model ups the RAM to 16GB and adds a 128GB SSD to help speed up the storage subsystem.

Notebook 7 Right

However, if the RAM and storage options aren’t to your liking, Samsung is giving you the ability upgrade either to suit your needs. So if you want to upgrade the base system to 16GB of RAM or add in your own SSD after you've gotten the Notebook 7 Spin home, the choice is yours.

The Notebook 7 Spin also supports fast charging, which can give you a two-hour boost to battery life in just 20 minutes. Likewise, the 13.3-inch model can be taken from an empty battery to a full charge in 100 minutes. The 15.6-inch model does the same deed in 90 minutes.

The Samsung Notebook 7 Series will be available to purchase from Best Buy or direct from Samsung starting June 26th.
