Samsung's entry-level 9 Series model priced $200 above Apple's MacBook Air

A few weeks ago we told you about official pricing and availability for the 13" Samsung 9 Series laptop. This week, we now have official pricing for the 11" 9 Series laptop that will be hitting the market next month.

Official pricing is listed at $1199.99 for the tiny ultra-portable notebook. The 11" model (1366 x 768 screen resolution) comes packing a 1.33GHz Core i3 380UM processor, 2GB of memory, and a 64GB SSD. Other features include a backlit keyboard, Intel HD Graphics 3000 IGP, 1.3MP HD webcam, 802.11n Wi-Fi, WiDi, and Bluetooth 3.0. 

Despite its thin and light frame, the notebook still comes packing 3 USB ports, a GbE port, and HDMI output. A 6-cell lithium-ion battery provides up to 7 hours of battery life.

The 2.31-pound 9 Series notebook comes with a standard 3-year warranty.

Apple's 11" MacBook Air starts at just $999 and doesn't include nearly as many features as the Samsung offering. Apple also uses an “archaic” Core 2 Duo processor, is rather skimpy on USB ports (only two are offered), and it doesn't feature a GbE port.
