Samsung unveils X360 ultraportable

By on August 28, 2008, 4:28 PM
Samsung has revealed its latest addition to its laptop range, the X360, which the company is touting as being “lighter than air and fully featured” – clearly a reference to Apple’s MacBook Air. Weighing in at 2.8 pounds, this laptop sports a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display and unsurprisingly lacks a built-in optical drive.


Other than that, the X360 doesn't seem to compromise terribly on what’s inside, with a Centrino 2 ULV processor, up to 4GB of RAM, six-cell battery, and you can go with a traditional 120GB hard drive or opt for either a 64GB or 128GB solid state disk. You also get three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, a 7-in-1 card reader, Ethernet port, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, and built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam.

Samsung says the X360 will be available next month in Europe, but they’re keeping mum about price and U.S. release date.

I was ready to bust out the Visa!!

They did it on purpose, like the Nokia 8800 <.

It does look like a quite pretty laptop, though.

No CD/DVD drive is just bizarre/dumb.
