SAMSUNG Electronics Unveils Ultra-light, Super-thin Notebook PC

Seoul, Korea? March 12, 2003: Samsung Electronics has unveiled its “dream” notebook PC (model: Sens X10), which weighs 1.8kg and is 2.38cm (less than an inch) thick. The Sens X10 features a 14.1” TFT-LCD screen, CDRW/DVD combo drive, and Intel’s new Centrino mobile PC platform. Users will not find better higher-performance notebook PC that is so easy to carry around.

Samsung Electronics teamed up with Intel to develop Centrino for enhanced performance and portability. For the new notebook PC, Samsung also developed 14.1” TFT-LCD only 5.2mm thick and a combination CDRW/DVD drive that is only 9.5mm thick. These components are 25-34% lighter and thinner than any other available.

Low-power technology was liberally applied, reducing battery power consumption 38% (increasing battery use time by at least 30 minutes per charge). The Sens X10 supports a Constant Power function that recharges the battery even while the PC is in use. The product comes with two batteries and an external charger, providing users with longer use time and greater convenience.

Centrino is a new notebook PC platform configured for wireless access and designed for low power consumption to accommodate today’s wireless networks. The Sens X10 was introduced at the Intel Developer Forum in February as the first product to use the Centrino platform. It is also being used at Intel Centrino launchings today at four locations, including New York and the CeBIT Show in Germany.

Samsung Electronics Computer Systems Division, Strategic Marketing Team Chief Kim Hyun-soo says, “This, the world’s thinnest and lightest notebook PC with an optical drive, is the result of more than two years’ work at Samsung Electronics. The ‘dream’ product delivers the performance and portability that users have always been looking for.”

The Sens X10 is available in three versions, depending on CPU, memory capacity and hard disc drive. Standard features include wireless LAN connection, 5.1-channel digital audio output, USB 2.0, IEEE1394 and memory stick slot. Some models also come with a fingerprint ID security system as well.
