Samsung MagicStation Fall

Samsung on Friday launched a major update to its ultra-compact MagicStation desktops. Both small form factor models like the MX15, MZ68, MZ70, NZ65, and NZ67 as well as the MV70 mini-tower now switch from Samsung's signature blue to a primarily red scheme but also gain genuine practical improvements. Now all systems, not just the high-end models, gain the company's unique EZ BLU feature: tapping a blue button on the system automatically scans the system for slowdowns and system errors and will contact a remote server to help find a fix, potentially solving problems before they become fatal to the system.

Many models now also have room for two hard drives and use NVIDIA's GeForce 8-series video cards to provide DirectX 10 feature support in games and better visual performance in Windows Vista. Samsung refrained from providing specifications for each of the systems but explained that prices would range between the equivalent of $761 and $1,413 when the systems go on sale soon, though a precise launch window was unavailable for any of the new systems. The new MagicStations will primarily sell in Korea.
