Samsung is rolling out a number of new notebooks soon as part of the company’s back-to-school lineup. The Samsung Series 3 laptops will have screen sizes ranging from 11.6 inches to 15.6 inches. I got a chance to check out a 12.1 inch model at a recent event, but detailed specs, pricing, and information about the other models wasn’t available at the time. Now it is.
Samsung Series 3 NP300U1A-A1US (11.6 inch notebook)
This model is due out in July with a suggested retail price of $679. At launch it will be exclusively available in the US from Staples stores, although that could change.
The laptop has a 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.2 GHz Intel Pentium 957 dual core processor. It will feature 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. The laptop has 3 USB 2.0 ports and a 6 cell battery.
Samsung Series 3 NP350U2B-A1US (12.5 inch notebook)
This model has a faster processor, a slightly larger display, and a higher price tag. It will be available from a variety of retailers this month for $749.
The laptop has a 12.5 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel matte display, a 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-2410M dual core processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 500GB hard drive.
This Samsug NP350 notebook is actually already up for pre-order at J&R, but it hasn’t begun shipping yet.
