Years after selling notebooks in Asia and Europe, Samsung has finally braved the jump to the U.S. market. The company will be releasing five different notebook lines to North America, including its pretty little 10-inch netbook for $499 and the super skinny X360 starting at $1,599. Other lines include their Q-series all-purpose notebooks, their R-series desktop replacements and the business focused, rugged P-series. Ha! We knew you couldn't stay away, Samsung. [Laptop Mag]
Where I work, we've been buying and using Samsung laptops for years. Prior to them buying the business arm of Gateway, all of MPC's ([www.mpccorp.com]) laptops were just rebranded Samsung laptops. My current work laptop is a TransPort T2500, which is a rebranded Samsung X65.
Of course, MPC is moving to sell Gateway branded laptops exclusively, so it'll be nice to continue to be able to get the Samsung laptops direct from Samsung.
