After striking Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, and many smaller notebook makers, the netbook craze has now hit Samsung. British site What Laptop has posted two official-looking pics of an upcoming Samsung netbook.
From the angles shown in the pictures, the 10.2" system definitely looks sleeker and thinner than the competition. Its white coat and glossy metallic hinges look straight out of an Eee PC ad, but the Samsung machine has more graceful and slender proportions. Well, either that, or Samsung has contracted overweight girls from MySpace to snap deceptively slimming photos—we should find out for sure soon enough.
Beneath that white plastic shell, a separate report by Pocketables says the Samsung netbook will carry a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of memory, 80-160GB of mechanical storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a card reader, a webcam, and a six-cell battery. That bundle will supposedly weigh 2.9 lbs (roughly in the same league as other 10.2" netbooks), and Pocketables expects it to hit Korean stores next month with a $550 price tag.
