Samsung 14.1-inch notebook

Samsung on Tuesday introduced a new notebook computer, the X460, which combines a 14.1-inch, 1280x800 LCD screen with a weight that is just under 4.2lbs. Other key specs of the X460 include a 45nm Intel Centrino 2 CPU of various processing speeds and support for up to 4GB of RAM memory. The smallest hard drive is sized at 120GB, while the largest optional HDD is 320GB in capacity. Samsung is trying to position the X460 as a stylish offering users would want to be seen with, and to this end, included a magnesium alloy casing offset with a brushed aluminum panel on the lid that is available in a choice of colors.

The laptop also include NVIDIA's GeForce 9200M GS graphics chipset with DirectX 10 support. A slim Light Scribe optical drive is standard fare, as are five USB ports for expandability. Bluetooth 2.0+EDR or the integrated multi-card reader allow users to quickly transfer files to and from the notebook, while connecting to the Internet is done via an Ethernet jack or the built-in Wi-Fi connection.

Samsung also deemed it fit to include a fingerprint scanner for security, along with a 1.3-megapixel webcam for video conferencing. An antibacterial keyboard is meant to minimize the build-up of bacteria and thus decrease the likelihood of users getting sick. Other connections the notebook sports include eSATA, DVI, SIO and an HDMI port. The removable 6-cell battery promises to deliver five hours of life when fully charged.

The X460 will launch in October in certain European and Asian countries, with no word on a US release. No pricing information has been released. [via Akihabara]
