Taking a page from the Sony playbook—when in doubt, make up a, nonsensical name for an entire product line—Samsung is introducing its new "Magic Station" PCs. They will be released that range from a powerhouse Maserati to a fully-loaded Kia. The MZ50 packs every imaginable feature into a Windows XP Media Center Edition PC and includes a 9-in-1 memory card reader, 7.1 channel sound card, DVI / RGB / S-video outputs, remote control, and PVR functionality. Sweet huh? What about the low end model, the MV50? 9-in-1 memory card reader, 5.1 channel sound card, PCI-X slots. Like we said. Fully loaded KIA. The middle-ground is dubbed the MZ48 and has a combination of the high end and low end features. Nice job Samsung. We approve.
