Copied even the design of narrow arrow keys.
On the eve of the Apple presentation at WWDC 2019, Samsung introduced Notebook 7 laptops, which look very similar to the MacBook Pro. They repeat both the overall design of the devices and the smallest features. This was noticed by the journalists of The Verge, who studied the device.
They noted neat thin edges around the screen, a wide trackpad, “sharp” edges of the case and a wide mechanism for closing the lid. In addition, Samsung used a keyboard font and wallpaper, similar to what Apple usually does.
Notebook 7 presented in two versions with diagonals of 13 and 15 inches. As noted in the publication, the smaller version looks more like a MacBook Pro due to the keyboard layout without numbers on the side and with the trackpad placed in the center. In the 15-inch version of the trackpad is shifted to the left of the screen, although Apple usually adheres to symmetry.
Unlike MacBooks, the Notebook 7 has a lot of external connectors built in, including two USB 3.0, one USB-C, HDMI and a microSD card slot. Both laptops come with eighth-generation Intel processors, 8 gigabytes of RAM, Full HD screens, and fingerprint sensors built into the keyboard (blue key on both versions). The 15-inch version can be improved by integrating the Nvidia GeForce MX250 discrete graphics instead of the integrated Intel graphics, as well as accommodate an additional SSD disk.
Notebook 7 will be available July 26 on Amazon and in its own online store Samsung. The price of the device starts from a thousand dollars (about 65 thousand rubles).
Samsung also introduced the Notebook 7 Force – a special version of the notebook for working with graphics and games. Unlike conventional models, it comes with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 video card, 16 gigabytes of RAM, an Ethernet port and two slots for additional drives.
The price of the device starts from 1499 dollars (about 97 thousand rubles). As noted by the journalists, it is more expensive than the usual cost laptops with similar graphics.
