The Notebook 7 Force is Samsung’s newest 15.6-inch laptop, and it’s all clean lines and high performance wrapped up in a black metal chassis.
The Force, which will start at $1,500 when it’s available in the US on July 26, is a traditional clamshell design — not a two-in-one like Samsung’s— and looks very much like it’s aimed at potential buyers.

The Notebook 7 will also be available on July 26 in the US from Samsung and Amazon. Preorders start July 12.
