Samsung Q40 Laptop

Available in an earlier form for certain parts of Europe, an updated version of Samsung's Q40 was introduced on Monday in the company's native Korea. In contrast to the recently unveiled Sony VAIO G, the newer Q40 trades some of its built-in storage for its role as a bridge between laptops and portable media players. While the DVD rewriter bundled with the system is external, this current Q40 model adds support for the DMB mobile TV standard common in Korea and other parts of southeast Asia, and can connect to mobile broadband through either HSDPA or less common WiBro networks. This lets owners watch their favorite shows or browse the Web before they arrive home, according to Samsung. Despite its comparatively large 12-inch screen, the system is 0.93 inches thick and weighs only 2.4 pounds. A 1.1GHz Core Solo, 1GB of RAM, and a 60GB hard disk help the system outperform the portable media centers which are increasingly popular in Korea. Samsung hopes to ship the new model for $2,287 US in its home country. A close-up photo is available after the jump, courtesy of Akihabara News.
