Spin Samsung's Notebook 7 screen right round on June 26th

When we reviewed Samsung's Notebook 9, my editor Dana noted that it was an excellent back to basics model from the company. It didn't feature a touchscreen or even a rotating screen -- it had a pretty good normal screen, though. For the folks who need the above accoutrements, though, Samsung is introducing the Notebook 7 Spin. With it comes a new 1080p touchscreen you can use like a tablet when spun 360 degrees. Hence the name. The 7 Spin can also go into tent mode for watching a movie with its HDR video capabilities. Or, if you're a traditionalist, you could use the computer like a normal laptop.

Beyond the screen's tricks, the computer also boasts fast charging. A full charge takes an hour and a half on the 15.6-inch model, and an additional ten minutes for the 13.3-inch version. But, if you're only near an outlet for 20 minutes, that'll eke out two extra hours of battery life. The Spin also offers either a 6th gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and 1TB hard drive, with options for more RAM and solid state storage.

You can snag one starting next week on June 26th from Best Buy or Samsung directly, with configurations starting at $799.
