Like previous year, the company seems to be saving its big mobile and wearable news for the coming months, instead focusing on its PC offerings. With a body built from light, but durable, magnesium alloy, the 13-inch Notebook 9 Pen is incredibly light, weighing in at just 2.2 pounds.

The Active Pen is the new Notebook 7 Spin's flawless companion for when users are attending meetings, listening to lectures or participating in conference calls. Samsung says that the laptop comes with an improved battery life as well.

After using the thing for a while, though, the Notebook 9 Pen seems like a better tool for students: you'll be able to jot down lecture notes in either OneNote or Samsung's included Notes app, and invoking Air Command (as you would on a Galaxy Note) reveals shortcuts for marking up whatever you happen to be looking at?

The Notebook 9 Pen makes use of the S Pen, naturally, though it isn't the first Samsung laptop to use the stylus. It's an interesting choice from a design perspective, given the fact that most of these PC come with larger pens for drawing and the like. The backlit keyboard includes features like a 1.5mm keystroke, curved keycap, and a Precision Touchpad. It supports an active Pen that takes advantage of the touch and inking features of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

It is powered by Intel i5 processor with up to 8 GB RAM. Its 13.3-inch display has a 1080p (1,920×1,080-pixel) resolution. The device offers up to 512GB storage and Intel HD Graphics. The 7 Spin arrives in the decidedly broader Q1 timeframe. It's very similar to the S-Pen, which fans of Samsung's Galaxy Note series will be familiar with, and fits neatly at the base of the device. Considering it will be competing against Microsoft's Surface Book series, we expect the Notebook 9 Pen to undercut Microsoft's laptop.

The new Notebook 9 is launching this month in the United States - it already launched in Korea ahead of the holidays, which is why the company announced the thing so far ahead of CES.
