Samsung M60 Game Notebook
Samsung's booth at CeBIT has quietly provided an early look at the latest addition to its 17-inch M series notebooks. Though still unofficial, the M60 was visible at the convention and was known to use equally unannounced technology. The demonstration system uses Intel's Santa Rosa chipset, sporting a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo with an 800MHz bus. Graphics in turn are handled by a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8000-series mobile chips, similar to those used by the Aura notebooks revealed at the start of the show.
Also confirmed by the leak are 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and a 1440x900 screen resolution. The M60 should make its first official appearance in May or June, shortly after Intel's new platform is made public. The system is likely to remain on sale only in Asia and Europe. [via NotebookReview]
