Samsung Notebook 9 Pen, Notebook 9 (2018), and Notebook 7 Spin (2018) will hit stores on February 18

Samsung makes excellent products -- it cannot be denied. While the company is probably best known for its wildly popular Android smartphones, the Galaxy-maker is much more than that. You can pretty much outfit your entire home with Samsung appliances and electronics -- televisions, Blu-ray players, refrigerators, washing machines, and more.

Where Samsung doesn't shine as brightly is with computers. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying the company makes bad Windows 10 laptops and Chromebooks -- quite the contrary -- but consumers are probably more likely to think of companies like Dell, Lenovo, and Acer for this market. Samsung has seemingly been trying to change this, however, as it has been pumping out some beautiful machines. Today, the company announces that its anticipated trio of Windows 10 laptops -- the Notebook 9 Pen, the Notebook 9 (2018), and Notebook 7 Spin (2018) -- will finally hit stores on February 18.

"Our new ultraslim notebooks combine convenience with performance and design – establishing what it means to create a premium PC experience for the way we live and work today. Whether you’re working up an important presentation, drafting your next big plan, or playing your favorite game on the go, you need immersive graphics, processing power, and frame rate. Our new series of notebooks give you the screen, power, graphics, memory, storage, and battery life to make your old laptop seem, well, old," says Samsung.

The company further says, "Before we engineered our new notebooks, we listened to you. We heard what you wanted and what you needed. You told us you wanted the flexibility to do, with one notebook, more than you can do with a simple tablet or a thick laptop. So we designed a range of mobile computing experiences to meet the needs of the modern, mobile workforce—helping everyone do more at home, at the office, and on the go."

What's cool about this lineup, is that all three models have specific purposes. In other words, if you are in the market for a new laptop, there is a good chance one of these machines will tickle your fancy. The Notebook 9 Pen is quite literal to its name, as it is a convertible that comes with an active pen. The Notebook 9 (2018) is a traditional laptop that can be configured with Nvidia graphics. The Notebook 7 Spin is an affordable affair, good for home, school, or business.

All three will go on sale starting February 18. You can check out detailed information on them below.
