Samsung shows curvy computers

New netbooks and notebooks in-bound

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Samsung has introduced the NF netbook family it plans to bring to market here in October. The new machines sports Intel's new dual-core Atom N550 chip.

There are three members of the NF line: the 110, 210 and 310. The NF110 is the budget option, Samsung said, and the NF210 a version packed with a bigger, longer-running, 8850mAh battery.

The high-end NF310 ups the screen resolution from the netbook-standard 1024 x 600 to 1366 x 768. Presumably, it's the one with the N550, but Samsung has yet to publish a formal spec sheet, but will probably do so at its IFA announcement tomorrow.

The NF series shares the same curvy design of the upcoming SF notebook family, which will also appear in October, Samsung said. Features include Core i3 and Core i5 processors and 61Wh lithium-polymer batteries good for 7.5 hours of runtime.

Judging from the pics, both the SF and NF machines have trackpads that double as buttons, Mac style.

Again the SF series has three members: the 13.3in SF310, the 14in SF410 and the 15.6in SF510. ®
