    This would be about perfect if it had a touchscreen and Thunderbolt port.

    I like this machine because it DOESN'T have a touch screen. It does offer video out from USB 3.1 Type C port. Does this mean it is Thunderbolt?

    Not necessarily. USB-C is capable of transmitting power, data (at either USB 3.0 or 3.1 and/or Gen I/II speeds), and/or DisplayPort video. Its implementation is dependent on the manufacturer and the individual device itself. The fact that Thunderbolt 3 uses the same connector only adds to the confusion. This particular machine appears to support data and video out of its USB-C port. Not sure about power, but it's definitely not TB3.

    That's a really good deal for those specs.

    Thanks for posting.

    Could you please check the screen for any PWM Flickering on brightness 100% to 0%. Here is the video for example: youtube >> search >> "Samsung Notebook 9 Pro PWM Problem". And you will find all information (in description and comments). How to check

    Here's benchmark video:


    Will look into PWM. Basically sounds like you need a high speed camera.
