Samsung M55 w/HD DVD
Shortly after announcing a version with Blu-Ray, Samsung has announced another M55 laptop with an HD DVD drive. Like the Blu-Ray computer, but unlike an earlier HD DVD model, the new system uses a 2GHz Core 2 Duo. The computer is similar to its Blu-Ray sibling in other ways as well, such as 2GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, and a GeForce Go 7600. One of the main attractions remains a 17-inch screen, which supports resolutions up to 1080p. The system is on sale in Korea for the equivalent of $3,215.
