Samsung is showing a 13-inch Series 9 ultrabook at IFA with a qHD 2560 x 1440 display. It’s only a prototype, but here is the only reasonable reaction to that bit of news: Hell yes.
The Series 9 is the most beautiful laptop out there. It’s prettier than MacBooks and ZenBooks and BookBooks. But the screen was one of the things holding it back this year. Folks at Samsung say that some of the other issues, like the throw depth of the keyboard, are being nudged back into place too. All of which goes to say, hopefully, hopefully, the next Series 9 you see will be a beautiful qHD monster with an awesome keyboard and a change of pants for when you poop a little because it’s so damn amazing.
