    Fans, suttle? You mean the noise? You were in a noisy room or did you test them in a quiet environment?

    Do you know what the battery was at for the start of said demo? Otherwise your entire battery statement could be entirely irrelevant.

    How come companies, especially Samsung, don't incorporate wireless charging on Ultrabooks? It seems like a perfect feature… Always charging the second you put in on your desk, table or wherever and pick it up and it's ready to go… wireless charging for everything. Let's go people, this should be on every device by now.

    Confused as to why Samsung wouldn't include USB C on both models, and why only 1080p ? C'mon Samsung it's 2016..

    Was thinking of getting the new Retina MacBook, but with this having an i5/i7 processor and being only 1.85 pounds, this might be a sell for me. Won't know for sure until I see the specs for the 2nd gen rMb, though. I hope pricing and release date for this Samsung laptop is released soon!

    I like how the lid can be open flat (180 degree). Many laptops including Macbook opens about 135 degree at maximum. Opening flat is helpful when I place the laptop on my lap or when an external monitor is connected (so that the lid does not block the monitor). I wish more and more manufactures would make the lid to be able to open flat.

    man if I knew this was coming out I would've waited. I got the skylake XPS 15 but I would've def looked at this especially with the much cheaper price (like freaking $400 cheaper lol)

    Can you create an app 'TheVerge' where you write blogs and keep us up-to-date and notify us about latest technology?

    Hey that's not a Samsung, that's a Mac… oh wait, it is a Samsung. Samsung comes up with its own ideas and never copies Apple.
