Samsung has just announced its new 11-inch Series 9 notebook which shall be available through Best Buy and other retailers and e-tailers starting mid-April. This 11-inch Series 9 notebook will be preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium and packed with a 64GB HDD.

If the 11-inch Series 9 notebook is Samsung’s bet against the 11-inch MBA, well it also has a bet against the new 13-inch MBA. And yes it’s also a Series 9 notebook with almost the same features except for the fact that it weighs heavier at 2.89 lbs., has Intel Core i5 1.4 GHz processor, Windows 7 home Premium or Windows 7 Professional, 4GB of RAM, 128 GB SSD, 13.3-inch HD LED-backlit SuperBrightPlus display, and Intel HD GT Graphics.
