Samsung adds to notebook range

18 Aug 11

Hot on the heels of the controversial Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung New Zealand has announced it will add to its notebook range, with two versions of the new Series 3 300V to be released next month.

Although both versions will sell for over $1000, the company is targeting the notebook at students, according to Don Renwick, group marketing manager at Samsung Electronics New Zealand.

A pink model is even being offered, in addition to black and what Samsung calls ‘snow silver’. 

"Kiwi students and social networkers want a notebook that looks good, has great performance and has the ability to keep up with all their social media demands on the go,” Renwick says in a press release.

The Series 3 300V features Samsung’s ‘instant on’ booting technology, which combines the sleep and hibernation modes to allow the notebook to boot up in just a few seconds.

Samsung is also promising up to 7 hours of battery life, and the capacity for up to 1000 charges compared with 300 in previous Samsung batteries.

The i3 processor model will retail for $1199 while the i5 version is priced at $1699. Both will be arriving in stores in September.
