First announced at CES 2016, the Samsung Chromebook 3 and the Notebook 9 will soon be available to consumers.The Chromebook 3 features a slim and lightweight design, providing users with a keen balance of capable computing and mobility. It has an 11.6″ (1366 x 768) anti-reflective HD screen with a useful 180-degree hinge, and it’s powered by an Intel® Celeron™ processor. Available in 2GB and 4GB RAM variations, the Chromebook 3 has all the standard connectivity options you would need, such as Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, a micro SD card slot, and an HDMI video output port. For storing files and programs, it is equipped with 16GB of eMMC flash storage, a specification commonly seen on many Chromebooks. It also has a built-in webcam, microphone, and speakers for video chat capabilities, along with a single microphone-headphone combo jack.


The most prominent features of this computer would have to be its portability and battery life. Samsung has rated the Chromebook 3 for 11 hours of battery life on a single charge, allowing you to leave the adapter at home and enjoy full use all day long. On top of that, using Samsung’s “Battery Life Extender” technology, it can maintain 70% of its original capacity with more than a thousand cycles in a three-year period. Despite its long battery life, this Chromebook is only 0.7″ thin and weighs a mere 2.54 lb. Additionally, with its non-slip patterned surface and ergonomically curved, spill-resistant keys, the Chromebook 3 is a great option for children and users who prioritize usability on the go. Also included is a convenient software suite that includes AirDroid Premium to manage your Android devices, and Little Bridge, an English learning program.

Samsung’s Notebook 9, however, features a sleek, full-metal chassis available in 13.3 or 15″ models, and is engineered for the modern professional. Just like the Chromebook 3, these notebooks are incredibly thin and lightweight, and are rated to last up to 12 hours for use all day long. The 13.3″ model is 0.5″ thin and 1.87 lb, whereas the 15″ model is 0.6″ thin at 2.8 lb. Powered by an Intel Core™ i5 processor with 8GB of DDR3 RAM, the 13.3″ Notebook 9 has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD low-reflective PLS screen with a 180-degree hinge. Integrated graphics are designed to provide users with stunning visuals that you can output to an external display with its micro HDMI port, or via mini VGA when used with an optional adapter. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.1, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Gigabit Ethernet LAN. It also has standard built-in features such as a webcam, speakers, microphones, a card reader, and USB ports. Additionally, the keyboard’s backlight automatically adjusts to ambient lighting conditions. The notebook provides seamless continuity among various devices with SideSync, Wi-Fi transfer, and Samsung Link, and enhanced security solutions with Security Cam, Pattern Log-in, Secret Screen, and Record Block.


The 15″ model encompasses many of the features of the 13.3″ model, but has an “Infinite Bezel” design that has shrunk down the chassis and bezels to create an enviable look that’s mostly all screen. Also unique to the 15″ model is a USB Type-C port, which allows you to connect cables in either orientation, and quick-charging capabilities that can provide you up to 2.3 hours of use with just 20 minutes of charging. The 13.3″ Notebook 9 will be available in Iron Silver or Modern Pink, whereas the 15″ model is currently available only in Iron Silver.

You can buy a laptop with an OLED screen now, but should you?


The technology in your laptop’s display hasn’t changed over the last several decades. With the exception of a few very early models from the 1980s, they’ve generally relied on LCD panels.
That was to their benefit for many years, but it’s recently become a drag. The problem? LCDs need a backlight, and it can’t be turned off completely (if it were, you wouldn’t be able to see what’s on the screen). LCD screens have a glow to them, even when they’re supposed to show a pitch black screen.
Videophiles hate that, which is why plasma televisions were the favorite of home theater junkies. Today, plasma’s crown has been stolen by OLEDs – and laptops are getting in on the action. It’s a major leap forward, but are OLED laptops ready to shine?
Your eyes will see the difference
There’s a good chance that you’ve never witnessed an OLED television or laptop before (the tech is common on phones, but the implementation often isn’t quite the same). You may be wondering what the big deal is. Allow me to present a graph.
Here, you can see the measured contrast ratio of the two OLED-equipped PCs we’ve reviewed, compared to two of the best LCD laptops we’ve ever reviewed. Quite a difference, isn’t it? The sensor we use to test laptops – Datacolor’s Spyder5Elite – reads zero luminance from these OLED screens when they display a perfectly black image. So the contrast ratio soars as high as the display’s maximum brightness allows.
Now, don’t get too excited. The raw numbers say an OLED screen is somewhere around a zillion times better than conventional LCD. In fact, the benefit of contrast ratio does have limits, because your eyes – and the content you view – have limitations.
What you will notice is the display’s black levels. The gray haze you’re used to see in movies and games is gone, replaced by pure, inky black. You’ll even notice it in more mundane tasks. Web pages suddenly look so precise, so vivid, that they’re comparable to a printed magazine.
Battery life is the catch

There’s no question that OLED does great things for image quality. The two systems we’ve tested — Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Yoga and Samsung’s TabPro S – have the best displays we’ve seen on a PC. In addition to huge contrast, the OLED panels have a wide color gamut and solid gamma curve. Color accuracy isn’t the best we’ve seen, but it’s not bad, either.
Going OLED decreased battery life between 10 to 25 percent, depending on load.
Still, we have found a downside. Portability.
Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Yoga proved the perfect testbed for this, since we’ve reviewed it both with and without the OLED panel. The standard IPS LCD screen even matched the OLED panel’s resolution, so it was as close to apples-to-apples as possible. Here’s what happened.
These results were clear and consistent. Going OLED decreased battery life between 10 to 25 percent, depending on load.
We saw the biggest drain in Peacekeeper, a web-browsing benchmark. It happens to have a white background around the test itself, so it’s bright. Our video test, meanwhile, saw the smallest variation. That makes sense, as the clip (a trailer of The Avengers) has many dimly let scenes.
Why does battery life shorten? It appears that, with current OLED panels, a fully lit screen uses a bit more power than an LCD screen. Remember, there’s no backlight with OLED. Instead, each individual pixel is lit, as needed. When all the pixels are lit, they’re downing a lot of juice.
This result isn’t great for OLED – but it’s not a disaster, either. A laptop that has 5 hours of battery life might be reduced to 4 hours if OLED is swapped in. That’s bad if you need 5 hours, but inconsequential if you rarely use more than 3 hours at once.
So, should you buy OLED?
Samsung’s TabPro S includes an OLED display as standard equipment. Otherwise, it’s an added-cost option. Tacking it to the X1 Yoga is currently a $125 charge. HP’s Spectre x360 offers it as part of a top-tier, $1,500 configuration. Alienware did offer OLED on its Alienware 13 as part of a $1,300 configuration, though it appears to have gone out of stock.

The average person, who’s looking at a $600 laptop, doesn’t need to think about OLED just yet. It’s an expensive option, and it may not show up in mainstream systems for a few years yet.
If you’re already considering a premium system, though, we think OLED is worthwhile – despite the premium. Your laptop’s display is one of the few components you’ll rely on every moment you use it. It can’t be replaced, and it doesn’t rapidly go out of date.
In fact, given the choice to spend extra cash on an upgrade to OLED, or an upgrade to the processor, you’re probably better off ticking the checkbox next to OLED. As long as you don’t mind sacrificing a bit of battery life, that is.
Editors’ note: An earlier version of this article erroneously used the term LED in place of LCD. We apologize for the mistake.

The Technology of Touch Screens

Here’s a question: What is a technology that you can’t see, but is essential to smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices — and is estimated to generate $16 billion in revenues this year (according to DisplaySearch)? The answer is multitouch touch screens — which have sparked the explosive growth of the mobile device market.

5 tips for defending against advanced persistent threatsIs your organization prepared to do battle against an APT? You’d better be.READ NOWIt was not so long ago that we would tap away on a PalmPilot with a tiny stylus, or exercise our thumbs on a BlackBerry micro-keyboard. Then, in January 2007, along came the Apple iPhone, and everything changed. Suddenly, people were wiping their fingers across screens, pinching images and performing other maneuvers that had not previously been part of the smartphone interface.Now we not only take touch input for granted, we expect to be able to use multitouch (using more than one finger on the screen at a time) and gestures as well. What made this touch screen revolution possible, and where is it likely to take us?
