Samsung ultra-lightweight fingerprint-enabled notebook
AuthenTec’s small form factor AES1610 is integrated as a standard feature on the first Samsung consumer notebook to leverage the convenient security of fingerprint biometrics. Powered by Intel’s Centrino 2 processor technology, Samsung’s ultra-lightweight X360 combines the capabilities of a fully-featured multimedia PC with enhanced mobility and security.
Samsung’s X360 weighs in at a scant 2.8 pounds and is the lightest notebook in its 13.3-inch class. Unlike the claims of some other “light” notebooks, the X360 is fully featured without compromise, including 3 USB ports, a built-in HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connection, a 34mm express card slot and VGA output.
For fast and easy transfer of documents, images, video or music it incorporates a highly flexible 7 in 1 memory card reader, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) and super-fast 802.11n wireless technology.
It also boasts an integrated digital motion camera, so it’s easy to stay in touch using video-conferencing or live messaging. But there is more, for business and home office users the X360 incorporates a 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN connection and support for Samsung P-Dock, docking station – which simplifies cabling and provides a “single click’ connection and easy access to a wide variety of ports.
The X360 will be available from September this year in European countries including UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy, and also in Russia, China and Hong Kong.
