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.
