Samsung to launch new Aura R410 budget notebook
Stylish and feature-packed
TrustedReviews has scored some exclusive information and pictures of Samsung's upcoming Aura R410 budget 14.1-inch notebook and it looks like a cracking deal for the money, as although this is an entry level notebook in terms of price, it's not when it comes to features.
The CPU will be an unspecified 45nm Penryn model, and interestingly this has been paired up with AMD's Radeon Xpress 1250M chipset, a product we thought was long gone. Other features include Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, WiFi 802.11b/g with Super G, i.e. 108Mbit and a 1.3Megapixel Webcam.
The display is a pretty standard glossy 14.1-inch unit with 1,280x800 resolution, good enough for 720p video and as the R410 doesn't have a Blu-ray drive, but rather a DVD writer, this isn't going to be too much of an issue. We could also spot three USB 2.0 ports, a D-sub connector, a TV out port, a memory card reader and what looks like an Express Card 34 slot.
With a SRP of £499 or €623 inc. VAT this looks like an amazing deal for the money, although with a lot of the specifications still missing, we'll reserve our final judgment until we find out what you actually get for the money.
