Samsung Electronics has added the Samsung Notebook 7 and Notebook 7 Force to its PC Portfolio. The laptops, according to Samsung have been designed for users who want a premium experience—and enough hardware to get them through their daily work.
Both laptops have been crafted in a compact yet delicate “solidity” design with serious speed and power. The Notebook 7 comes in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch sizes while the Notebook 7 Force only comes in 15.6-inch display size. Whichever model you choose among the two you will still be presented with a minimal and functional appeal, durable solid metal frame, slim profiles with minimal bezels, and excellent portability.
We are not sure if or when the laptops will be available locally buts hopefully that will is going to be soon. Let’s look at each of the laptops:
Samsung Notebook 7

You’re also getting a choice of Intel 8th generation Core processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB SSD (NVMe) pre-installed. The larger Notebook 7 15-inch models can be configured with an Nvidia GeForce MX250, and also have a spare M.2. slot for adding more storage.

The Notebook 7 Force, on the other hand, isn’t different from the 15-inch Notebook 7 model in terms of design. The main difference in the specs is the inclusion of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650.
