Samsung introduces 17.3" R720 laptop

By on June 10, 2009, 11:51 AM
Samsung has introduced a successor to last year's R710, the R720. With its 17.3” (16:9) LED display and ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 graphics chip (512MB or 1GB GDDR3); the R720 is best fit for multimedia purposes.

In coordination with the multimedia-oriented theme, the laptop features 4-watt stereo speakers and a dedicated subwoofer. It will be based on Intel Centrino 2 processor technology and will have at least a minor emphasis on power consumption and extended wireless mobility. Your external devices should be well covered with four USB 2.0 ports, including one eSATA combo, and the ability to charge your gadgets while the laptop is powered off.


Additional features include an antibacterial keyboard with a full-sized numeric keypad and in true multimedia style, an optional Blu-ray drive. No word on the pricing but the R720 will ship to UK customers with Vista Home Premium in July of this year. Assuming they don’t go overboard with the MSRP – the R710’s big brother is shaping up to be a worthy buy.
