Among the many products Samsung showed off at its CES 2011 press conference and prior was the 9 Series laptop, which many say looks like a true competitor to the MacBook Air. The 9 Series comes with a second-generation Intel Core i5-2537M CPU, 4GB of DD43 RAM, and a 128GB solid-state drive, along with Windows 7 Professional. It goes for $1,599.
The company showed two large HDTVs surrounded by a border that's just two-tenths of an inch wide--practically invisible. The TVs--available in the first half of this year for an as yet unannounced price--will have what's being called a "1-foot connection," meaning any device in range of your TV or computer that's previously registered will automatically connect.
The winners of Samsung's well-publicized "Free the TV" Challenge for app developers come onstage during the company's press event to accept a check for $200,000. They developed an app called "We Draw."
