Samsung Electronics Philippines, Corp (SEPCO), a market leader in consumer electronics and world leader in IT technology, today announced its forward-looking R440 and R480 line-up of notebooks. With the built-in Intel ® Core ™ i-5 Processor, Samsung’s new notebooks moves faster than you do by allocating power where it’s needed the most.

These models all come in Samsung’s new Touch of Color crystal finish, with a distinctive S-pattern, together with LED touchpad lighting and a low-profile island keyboard for a seamless and elegant look with exceptional haptics. Their robust, scratch resistant Samsung durable casing withstands everyday bumps and knocks and also prevents smudge marks.

Samsung new notebooks offer stunning display options. Their HD LED displays provide the sharpest images and boldest colors. Their proper 16:9 aspect ratio also means that the very latest HD movies and games can be enjoyed without skewing and distortion. In addition, every detail is brought to life with video playback through the advanced 3D graphics processing power of the latest NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card.

To add to these powerful features Samsung’s latest notebooks include a range of useful tools. The AnyPC remote PC access application enables a secure one-click connection to a home or office PC, making it safe and easy to transfer and view files on the go. The unique Phoenix FailSafe ® software provides useful tool for tracking your pc if it’s stolen. This powerful theft deterrence service lets you track the location of a lost or stolen netbook and encrypt, manage, retrieve or erase your vital data.
