Samsung's new Notebook Odyssey gaming laptop packs an RTX 2080

Samsung just announced during its CES 2019 press conference the imminent arrival of a pair of new notebook PCs - laptops which the company unveiled today as the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro and the Samsung Notebook Flash.

Samsung was also showing off the Notebook Flash at CES, and announced that this affordable laptop will be launching in the U.S. on January 15. To dress up its plastic chassis, Samsung gave it a textile pattern that looks and feels like twill.

Disneyland raises prices; cheapest daily ticket more than $100
The prices apply to both the original Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and its sister park, California Adventure. The least expensive daily ticket to Disney World in Florida will be $109.

The lid cover looks like a donut with sprinkles on top, spread in uniform rows across the lid. Samsung doesn't sell IT products locally, so you'll have to import the Notebook Odyssey from overseas if it tickles your fancy. Sure, the Intel Celeron N4000 or Pentium Silver N5000 might not win races, but, with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB eMMC, it can still get the job done. Especially since it's running Windows 10 Home. As far as the design, Samsung is touting a "cool metal exterior" with diamond-cut edges - perfect, the company says, for creatives who want something stylish that also offers fast performance.

The Notebook Flash has a fingerprint scanner, and a retro typewriter-style keyboard design both of which differentiate it from your run-of-the-mill budget notebook.

Bluebottles inundate Queensland beaches stinging thousands of swimmers
According to the report, some 2630 people were stung across the weekend, with nearly 1000 hurt in a matter of hours on Sunday. But a SLSQ spokesman described the latest influx as an "epidemic", while some local media outlets labelled it an "invasion".

The new Samsung Notebook 9 Pro features an 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8565U processor with 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB of NVMe storage.

Samsung expects the new Notebook 9 Pro to be available in early 2019; no pricing is available yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it started upward of $1,000. The thin aluminum body looks clean and modern, and with the thinner bezels around the 13.3-inch full HD display, you're looking at mostly screen whether you're using it as a laptop or tablet. Somewhat curiously, the option to add an LTE modem is absent, even though it's available on several other Samsung laptops.

Giant utility facing California wildfire claims explores bankruptcy, sources say
The prospect of a state takeover may not offer a panacea, Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Kit Konolige said. Shares of California utility PG&E tumbled Monday, because investors are anxious it may go bankrupt.

The Samsung Notebook Flash is expected to go on sale January 15 at Amazon and for $350.
