SAMSUNG Electronics today announced the ultra-lightweight SAMSUNG X460. Following from the launch of the 'Lighter than Air' SAMSUNG X360, the X460 promises to pack a sleek, light notebook with even more functionality, allowing notebook users to go further, do more, and look great when they get there. Here are the details of this ultralight notebook:
Designed to meet the demanding 'anytime, anywhere' performance and connectivity requirements of today?s new generation of agile users, the X460 sets a completely new standard in mobile computing - offering a comprehensive set of features in a slim lightweight package superior to anything else on the market. Weighing a mere 1.84kg, but incorporating the all new 45 nano-meter sized Intel Centrino 2 processor technology, a high performance graphics card and an integrated optical disk drive, the X460 continues SAMSUNGs emergence as a leading producer of feature packed ultra mobile notebooks. And despite being one of the lightest notebook in its 14.1? class, the SAMSUNG X460 still manages to fuse uncompromised functionality and performance with class leading design.
For maximum productivity on the move, the X460 incorporates a removable 6-cell battery as standard that provides up to 5 hours of continuous use - ensuring maximum freedom and making mobile computing a more practical proposition. There is also an option for an extended 9 cell battery that promises to deliver 7 hours* of computing performance. Power consumption is optimised even further through the use of an innovative 14.1" Flat-LED WXGA (1280 x 800) gloss screen, incorporating backlight technology, which consumes significantly less energy. However, the screen doesn?t let you down when you?re on the move, generating around 33% more brightness than traditional LCD screens, making it easier to work outdoors or in low light. And coupling this with a dedicated nVIDIA 9300M GS graphics core delivers a stunning visual experience.
For easy transferring of documents, images, video and music the X460 incorporates a highly flexible 7-in-1 memory card reader, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) and an ultra slim internal optical drive. But with security at a premium, the X460 also has a secure biometric fingerprint and trusted platform module (TPM) authentication system to ensure data is always fully protected.
The X460 also boasts an integrated digital motion camera, making it easy to stay in touch with colleagues or friends using video-conferencing or live messaging. For business and home office users, the X460 incorporates a 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN connection, modem and support for the SAMSUNG P-Dock docking station, simplifying cabling and providing a 'single click' connection and easy access to a wide variety of ports.
With captivating craftsmanship, the X460's Protect-o-Edge magnesium alloy casing provides remarkable strength and superior reliability, coupled with enhanced ergonomics and premium styling. In addition, the brushed aluminium plate on the back of the screen provides extra durability. What's more, SAMSUNG uses its own components, including memory, batteries and screens wherever possible, meaning there?s no need to worry about the quality of external add-ins. This focus on manufacturing excellence means SAMSUNG mobile computers have one of the best reliability records in the industry, delivering a very low total cost ownership for both business and consumer users.
The X460 will be available from September this year in European countries including UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy, as well as in Russia, China and Hong Kong. Pricing starts at ?999 GBP
