Samsung's new SF laptop series is designed to draw "admiring advances" thanks to its glossy exterior and curvaceous case. It's Alienware for ladies.

Battery life is the big boasting point, here—Samsung says there's enough room inside the SF's battery to store 7.5 hours worth of workable electricity, with the juice powering your choice of i3 or i5 Intel Dual Cores. Samsung's own "Express Charging Mode" reduces charging times to between two and three hours. Which... sounds about normal.

Samsung SF series notebooks have a distinctive design that offers style-conscious users the ultimate in mobility. The Samsung SF series will be available globally from October 2010.

The SF series will draw admiring glances from everyone around you with its tactile, glossy ivory exterior, stylish mat-black interior and comfortable island keyboard. It is available in three screen sizes (13.3" SF310, 14" SF410 and 15.6" SF 510) and shows refined craftsmanship with a durable case that has been constructed to be both ultra-light and scratch resistant.

Powered by Intel Core i3 / i5 dual-core processors, the SF series delivers performance as well as power efficiency, keeping users connected on the road. The SF series comes with a hybrid graphics solution which uses 2 different graphic cards – one is from Intel and enables longer battery life while the other from nVIDIA allows for enhanced multimedia performance.

Battery life is essential for working on-the-go so Samsung has included a premium Lithium Polymer Battery that provides up to 7.5 hours of battery life (61Wh battery). For additional convenience, the SF series also features Samsung's Express Charging Mode, reducing charging times and delivering a full battery in just 2~3 hours.

Samsung's Fast Start technology enables users to open the note PC and be ready to go in seconds. The Fast Start feature eliminates the waiting around for a laptop to start. The SF series' one-touch wireless control button allows you to connect immediately without any complicated steps. The combination of Samsung's Fast Start technology with its one-touch wireless capability means that you are up and online quickly and efficiently.

As well as enabling you to get started as soon as possible, the SF series helps you to stay connected using all of your devices. If you are caught short and find your smart phone, camera or other electrical devices low on power when traveling, Samsung's convenient USB Sleep & Charge lets you plug in your external devices via the USB connection, to charge without turning on your notebook.
