Samsung recently briefed journalists on its new laptops, but in order to do so, first lifted them 40m into the Sydney skyline.
In the shaky winds we sat as Samsung introduced its new range. Chief among its laptops was the R580 and R780, 15.6- and 17.1-inch models respectively. Based off the Core i5 and i3 architecture, all feature GeForce 300 series based graphics, 500GB hard drives and are built on Intel's HM55 chipset.
Also launched was a refreshed netbook line, including the N150 and the N210, which contained the new Atom N450 processor and are set at an RRP of $499 and $599 respectively, the major difference being a six cell battery in the N210.
Yeah, that's high. Samsung prepares to hoist Sydney's laptop journalists up in the air.
The R580, a 15.6-inch, Core i3 or i5 powered laptop with Nvidia graphics and a 500GB hard drive. The R780 looks almost identical, save for its 17.1-inch screen size. It comes in red, and that's your only choice.
