Samsung to Introduce Two New CULV Laptops

September 4, 2009

Samsung is expected to announce two new CULV based laptops soon, the X420 and X520. The laptops will be based on an ultra-thin design with high battery life.

The Samsung X420 is based on Intel's Pentium Dual Core SU2700 1.30 GHz processor, with a 250GB 5400RPM hard drive and 3GB DDR3 RAM. However, an optical drive is not included.

It's equipped with a 14-inch screen and weighs 3.7 pounds. The Samsung X520 will be equipped with a similar SU2700 CPU which consumes ultra low power along with a 320GB hard drive and 4GB DDR3 memory. The X520 comes with a 15.6-inch display and weighs around 4.6 pounds. Both laptops include integrated Intel GMA X4500M cards. All the standard ports, including HDMI, are in place.

The laptops come with a standard 6-cell battery which delivers around nine hours of battery time. The laptops are expected to be introduced by the end of October after the official release of Windows 7. They will be available in Europe with a retail price of around €700 or $1000.
