Samsung shows off Notebook Odyssey gaming laptop

Yesterday, pre-orders opened for Samsung's new Notebook 9 series, which the company referred to last month as the "lightest notebook on the market". Samsung is also preparing to launch a new gaming laptop which it showed off this week amid the excitement of the CES 2017 industry expo.

Microsoft describes Samsung's new Notebook Odyssey as delivering "power in a beautiful design with premium features to offer a premium gaming experience".

The Odyssey includes a 'HexaFlow Vent', described as "an advanced cooling and ventilation system that helps the device remain cool at all times". Located on the bottom of the device, the vent can also be opened to allow users to upgrade the machine's storage and RAM.

Both the 17.3- and 15.6-inch models have wide-angle displays with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution and an anti-glare finish, promising "an immersive and dynamic cinema-quality HDR video experience".
