Samsung has just announced a new range of laptops, the Notebook 7, just before WWDC 2019. At first glance, the devices are very similar to the MacBook Pro.
In addition to smartphones, Samsung also occasionally brings new laptops to the market. This time it has announced a new series of laptops, the NoteBook 7. The design of the laptops is probably very familiar to you since it looks suspiciously similar to that of the well-known MacBook Pro from the American Apple.
The NoteBook 7 comes first in two sizes, 13 inch and 15 inch, of which the smaller model has the most similarities with the MacBook Pro. The photo above (right) shows that the layout of the keyboard and the large centred touchpad have been taken over. The screen edges are also extremely thin and even the font on the keys is similar to that of the MacBook. Samsung does better than Apple when it comes to connections. Both USB 3.0 and HDMI are present.
