The Samsung Notebook 7 Spin is now currently available in the US. Many laptop fans are going crazy over it. There are two size options available for this 2-in-1 device. There is a 13.3-inch model while there is also a 15.6-inch version for those who want a larger screen.

Windows Central reports that the 13.3-inch variant is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB HDD, and Intel HD Graphics 520. On the other hand, the 15.6-inch option has an Intel Core i7 processor, available with either 12GB or 16GB of RAM, 1TB of HDD and 128 GB SSD as well as NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU.

There have been rumors saying that Microsoft is waiting for the new Intel Kaby Lake processor as well as Windows 10 Redstone 2 OS before releasing the Surface Pro 5 causing the delay. Another rumor, which is tied to the Surface Pro 5, is a new and improved Surface Pen. According to Patently Mobile, Microsoft has previously filed a patent for a rechargeable Surface Pen and dock which will make the Surface Pro 5 even better.

The Surface Pro 5 is also expected to add a USB-C Port, which is notably not available with the Surface Pro 4. The next generation Surface Pro is rumored to have a bigger 13.3-inch display with 4K resolution.

These two devices are certainly excellent in their own right and no one can be faulted for picking one over the other. Which one would you rather have? Be sure to let us know in the comments field below.
