The Apple and Samsung battle continues onto the computer world as the South Korean company showcased their Series 9 WQHD ultrabook.
Showcasing it at the IFA 2012 in Berlin, Germany, Samsung's prototype of the Series 9 ultrabook sports a display of 2,560x1440 resolution. To compare that, Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display has a resolution of 2880x1800.

Although not too far in the resolution number, the Series 9 device is slightly smaller - at 13-inches - has greater pixels-per-inch (ppi).
According to Webopedia, ppi is a measurement of how a monitor displays an image.
Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display is available in 15-inches and with 221ppi, according to GearBurn, while Samsung's 13-inch ultrabook gets 226ppi.
The 13-inch Series 9 WQHD ultrabook could be a blow to Apple's Retina plans as it's been heavily speculated that the MacBook company is planning to release their own 13-inch version of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display in October.
As Latinos Post reported last week, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim said production of a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display has begun for the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro.
Speculated features for the Series 9 WQHD ultrabook include the Ivy Bridge processors and Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system. The ultrabook is also very thin and light weighing only 3.5 pounds.
No release date has been set for the Series 9 WQHD ultrabook or even a confirmation from Samsung if there's plans to launch it in stores.
