Samsung Unveils 2010 Lineup of Professional Mobile PC Products

Premium, Essential Notebooks and Specialized Netbook Series to Fit the Needs of Professionals at Work and On The Go

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, introduces two new notebook lines as well as a specialized netbook designed specifically with the business user in mind. The two new notebook lines – P80 Premium series and P30 Essential series – and the new NB30 Pro netbook provide a range of connectivity, security, durability and design-based computing options for professionals in the office and while on the road.

“Business users have different computing needs including power, interconnectivity, and mobility to name just a few. Samsung designed these product lines with the practicality and performance needs of the business user in mind,” said Todd Bouman, director of product marketing at Samsung Electronics Information Technology Division. “The options provided by the Premium, Essential notebook and Specialized netbook lines provide a variety of options for all professional environments.”

P80 Premium Series

The P80 Premium series notebooks are designed to meet a wide range of business needs and include a powerful Intel® Core™ i5 processor, a docking station connector that provides a “single click” connection and easy access to wide array of ports, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity option and 320 GB hard drive. The notebooks are available in two HD LED backlit screen sizes – 14-inch (P480) and 15-inch (P580) – with a matte finish ideal for image work as well as documents, spreadsheets and presentations. With a built-in Webcam and integrated microphone, the P80 series can be used for video conferencing and virtual presentations.

The P80 series will be available for sale through Samsung resellers beginning late May for an MSRP of $999.

P30 Essential Series

Samsung’s P30 Essential series includes features business users expect in a notebook including a scratch resistant exterior texture. The P430 (14-inch) and P530 (15-inch) also contain the Intel® Core™ i3 processor, 250 GB of hard drive space and a 6-cell battery that boasts up to a 4.5 hour battery life. Weighing 5.5 and 4.9 pounds, respectively, these notebooks are light enough to be carried every day, while packing the computing power a small office or home office user needs to run a business.

The P30 series will be available for sale through Samsung resellers beginning late May for an MSRP of $849.

NB30 Pro Specialized Netbook

The Samsung NB30 Pro specialized netbook has been adapted from the NB30 consumer model launched earlier this year. The rugged durability of the original model has been enhanced with features designed for the business user including Windows 7 Professional OS and increased memory size. It maintains the free-fall sensor which automatically parks the HDD spindle, helping avoid damage to the hard drive if the netbook is dropped, a specially-designed durable casing, and the water resistant keyboard to prevent potential damage from contact with up to 50cc of spilled liquid. These are all ideal features for the business traveler looking for the portability of a netbook and added durability to match a busy lifestyle.

The NB30 Pro will be available in late May through Samsung resellers for an MSRP of $519.
