We’ve managed to get a glimpse of Samsung’s latest mainstreamnotebook – the R410. Wandering through a hall of Samsung’s wares at itsHQ in South Korea, we were shown the R410 in action.
It’s not aslightweight as you might expect – 2.4KG for a 14.1-inch laptop remainsa little on the heavy side – but cheaper notebooks contain heaviercomponents. The lid retains Samsung’s glossy black branding, while theinside is silver.
Speaking of price, it’ll be £499 and you should be able to get your hands on one anytime now.
Thespecs on the model we saw were 2GB of RAM, an ATI Radeon Xpress 1250graphics card, a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The 1,280 x 800 pixel displaywill almost certainly have a gloss coating for the UK. The R410 canalso employ any chip from an Intel Celeron T1400 right up to an IntelCore 2 Duo T9300 – exact UK specifications to be confirmed.
Whilethere’s an S-Video out and a 3-in-1 card slot, there’s no HDMI as onmany of Samsung’s other notebooks – somewhat surprising, but there haveto be some sacrifices to hit that sub-£500 price point. Interestinglythough, it boasts Gigabit LAN.
