UPDATED. Despite it being a PC, we’re absolutely in love with Samsung Series 9 laptop.  I measures a svelte .68-inches at its thickest point and weighs a mere 2.9lbs.  If this thing isn’t a Macbook Air killer, then we don’t know what is.

Much like the aforementioned competing Apple product, the Series 9 lacks an optical drive, but does sports an Ethernet port, USB ports, headphone jack, HDMI output and a Core i5 2537M processor under the hood.  There is also a 128GB SSD for storage, 4GB of RAM, a 13.3-inch LED display, speakers with sub and a backlit keyboard.  

Samsung hasn’t yet announced an official launch date, but we’re hearing the price will be in the $1,600 ball park.

Update: The Samsung Series 9 laptop will go on sale this February for $1,599.
