Samsung's Series 9 ultrabook is the thinnest 15-inch laptop around, which would seem to make it a good candidate for a new low power Ivy Bridge processor. Sure enough, Samsung's UK site is listing a model called the N900X46 with a 1.7Ghz Intel Core i5 3317u chip, which is an ultra-low voltage unit that we first caught wind of back in March. Beyond the new processor the internals are much the same — you're still looking at a 128GB SSD, 8GB RAM, and a 1600 x 900 display. While the external design looks almost identical the N900X46 is 14.9mm thick, which is a likely imperceptible gain of 0.2mm on the previous model. Unfortunately there aren't any details on pricing or a release date, but since the 3317u wasn't included in Intel's initial Ivy Bridge launch it may be some way off.
