Currently, you can get the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 2-in-1 Laptop for $799 at Best Buy. Normally, priced at $1,099.99, that's $300 off its regular price. It's the lowest price we've seen for this convertible laptop.
It's one of the best laptop deals you can get right now.
If you want the best of both worlds in a portable PC, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is one of the best laptops to buy.
Specs-wise, it packs a 13.3.-inch (1920 x 1080) touch screen display, a Core i7-8565U CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
In our Samsung Notebook 9 Pro review, we liked its premium design, decent performance and solid battery life. Although we thought the display could be brighter, we gave it an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars.
Design-wise, if a MacBook and 2-in-1 Windows laptop had a baby, it would be the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. The Notebook 9 Pro's interior is eerily similar to the MacBook's design -- its silver deck is home to a black keyboard with rounded keys.
Besides its premium design, MacBook Pro fans will enjoy its bouncy keys. The 4.7 x 2.5-inch touchpad is remarkably soft and comfortable to use. In tablet mode, the laptop's lid aligns perfectly with the underside.
At 2.7 pounds and 12.1 x 8.1 x 0.6 inches, the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is lighter and thinner than the HP Spectre x360 (13-inch, 2019) (2.8 pounds, 0.6 inches), Huawei MateBook 13 (at 2.9 pounds, 0.6 inches) and Lenovo Yoga C930 (3.1 pounds, 0.6 inches).
In one test, the Notebook 9 Pro's Core i7-8565U CPU with 8GB of RAM, sped through 40 Google Chrome tabs and five 1080p YouTube videos without stuttering. In our lab's Geekbench 4.1 overall performance test, the Notebook 9 Pro scored 15,432, which beats the 13,328 premium laptop average. It also beat the Spectre x360 and MateBook 13 (14,935) and the Yoga C930's (14,739).
Port-wise Samsung ditched the USB Type-A port and gave the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-C charging port, a microSD card slot and a headphone jack.
If you don't want to spend a lot of money on a MacBook Pro, the now $799 Notebook 9 Pro has similar specs for a fraction of the price.
