Samsung SF

Korean giant Samsung has just announced a whole new raft of notebooks to arrive in Australia in the next few weeks.

The new models fall into three family groups – the style-focused SF, the movie-watching RF and the premium mobility performance QX.

The SF features a range of CPU options start at $1299 and is said to deliver up to 7.5hours battery life. The battery can be fully charged in two to three hours using what Samsung calls its Express Charging Mode.

The RF range is aimed at home entertainment. Samsung has opted for Nvidia graphics solutions here with different models opting for either the GeForce GT330M or GT420M integrated chips.

Samsung sees the performance here as suitable for the latest games. It remains to be seen just how well these chips handle high performance gaming at native screen resolution.


Samsung QX

The RF710 will also come with Blu-ray playback. All models features HDMI output so they can be used with a flat-panel TV.

The QX is the mobile option of the three with an option for a 13-inch screen and sub-2kg weight. It features up to 6.9hrs battery life and uses Intel’s Core i5 processor range.

The QX features an aluminium back and edge-to-edge LCD panels.

Samsung doesn’t specify whether these models will come with the 32- or 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.

At the moment, there is something of a transition happening among some brand-names, with many recent models featuring the 64-bit version of Microsoft’s operating system.

Specs and pricing for all the available models are below. They are expected to be on sale next month.
