Samsung Series 9 11-Inch Pre-Orders: Amazon price $1149

The Samsung Series 9 notebooks have impressed a lot of people with ultra-elegant design and high specs. Recently we gave you some news on the official price with online pre-orders available from Samsung but today we have heard that you can now order the Samsung Series 9 11-inch notebook through Amazon with a price of $1149.

That’s a nice little saving of $50 off the price directly through Samsung at $1199. We’ve given you some official specs for the Series 9, 11-inch laptop but as a brief recap we can tell you the Samsung 900X-1A (official name) has an 11.6-inch display, Core i3 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB SSD. Sadly there’s still no official release date for the US listed but the fact that pre-orders are open suggests it won’t be too much longer.

News of Amazon pre-orders comes to us from Vlad Savov over on Engadget and that $1149 price includes free shipping. The Samsung Series 9 is real competition to Apple’s MacBook Air and we recently gave news of a comparison, the Series 9 vs. the MacBook Air, looking at the 13-inch version, in which the Air slightly edged it. Saying that the Series 9 notebooks have a lot going for them but come in a little more expensive than the Airs. If you want to read more there’s a great article over on Laptop by Jason Anderson of G Style Magazine, which focuses more on the design.

We reckon the Series 9 11-inch version will be flying off the shelves when launched and want to know what you think? Will you be purchasing a Series 9, or maybe you want to wait and see what the next refresh of the MacBook Air has to offer? Let us know with your comments.
