    Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today announced three new mobile PC lines for the workplace. The Series 2, Series 4 and Series 6 laptops combine first-rate reliability and enhanced security with features like anti-shock hard drives and pressure-resistant casings to meet the needs of a fast-paced enterprise or educational environment.

    Comfortable, Performance-Driven Experience
    With all-day use in mind, Samsung engineered the Series 2, 4, and 6 mobiles PCs to provide the most comfortable and efficient experience possible. The sleek new laptops feature the latest 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor technology and Intel HD graphics, with select models offering optional nVIDIA Optimus Technology for outstanding graphics performance and long battery life. Additionally, the 300-nit 16 million color SuperBright display offers a 50-percent brighter screen than conventional displays. The new enterprise-focused mobile PCs also feature comfortable keyboards and an optional TrackPoint in addition to a large touchpad to create an enhanced user experience even during periods of extended use.

    Samsung's Fast Start technology helps users take control of their work flow, allowing users to begin working within 3 seconds of opening the display or pressing the power button when in sleep mode. Samsung Fast Start also automatically saves data onto the HDD, to prevent data loss in the event the device loses power or the battery is removed. For added performance in the business world, Samsung's Fast Browsing feature offers up to a 15-percent improvement in web response time, allowing users to quickly access information and databases online.

    Samsung's new line of business notebooks provide outstanding battery life with a high capacity 6-cell battery providing up to 7 hours of battery life on a single charge. The optional 9-cell battery provides even longer battery life for mobile professionals on the go.

    Unwavering Reliability, Durability and Security
    Ensuring that a workforce can perform whenever and wherever they need, durability and reliability is at the core of the new lines with a standard 3-year warranty on all models and US-based Tier 2 customer support. For education and small businesses customers, the Series 2 mobile PC offers users a durable and affordable computing option while the Series 4 and Series 6 laptops are ideal for users with more demanding computing needs.

    Each of the new laptops is constructed with a super-hard external casing and metal hinges for rugged durability. For further protection, Series 6 business rugged notebooks are equipped with reinforced magnesium alloy construction for enhanced durability.
    For added peace of mind, the Series 2, 4 and 6 computers all feature an anti-spill design with a sealed case, reducing the risk of damage from minor spills on internal components. Moreover, the laptops feature Samsung's anti-shock hard disk drive (HDD) protection, which uses an accelerometer to detect movement and stop the disk from spinning, preventing potential data loss upon impact.

    For CTOs and IT managers that need to ensure sensitive contents remain secure at all times, each of the new notebooks is equipped with a range of security features such as pre-boot authentication. Series 4 and Series 6 notebooks add additional security features including a Fingerprint Sensor and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip. Series 6 notebooks further enhanced security and manageability features with Intel vPro technology.

    Improved Usability and Connectivity
    Flawless integration with existing enterprise technology is a primary concern within an office environment. With this in mind, Samsung's Easy Migration service allows users and IT managers to easily transfer files, settings and profiles from a user's previous PC to one of Samsung's newest models. Users can also rapidly backup and share data using a high-speed USB 3.0 connection.

    For users that need teleconferencing capabilities, each model features enhanced audio/visual components, including a 1.3MP webcam and array microphone – making sharing business plans or presentations with clients and vendors simple and cost effective.

    All three of the new lines of mobile PCs come with a standard three year warranty and Samsung Support. The Samsung Series 2 and Series 4 are scheduled to be available in April 2011. The Samsung Series 6 will be available in May 2011.

    I find it interesting that Samsung is now doing a "nipple" and double set of mouse click keys. Personally, I hate "the nipple" as a pointing device. Please, designers, let it die. However, Samsung seems to have done their research and decided it is a feature that is critical to sales-decisions. I'm surprised, but perhaps it is true in some segments. There may well be old fuddy-duddy managers that still haven't learned how to use the trackpad. Odd. Really odd. I think such people (who cant use a trackpad) would rather have a touch sensitive screen that use the nipple.

    The "enterprise user" is also typically working in a lock-down security environment. Things like CDs are not tolerated as they used to be 10 years ago. I'm surprised to see that on the base model. All software is installed over installation scripts over LAN. Maybe the CD is optional.
