Samsung's new line of consumer notebooks—the R480, R580 and R780—are designed to straddle the line between portable device and desktop replacement, with relatively lightweight form factors that leverage new Intel processors and run Windows 7 Home Premium. The smallest device in the series, the R480, weighs 5.07 pounds and includes a 14.0-inch LED HD screen with 1,366 by 768 resolution. Samsung is launching this new line at Best Buy stores. The following slides show how the R480, like the other laptops in the series, embraces a wider industry trend of building laptops for stylishness in addition to portability and power, via Samsung's Crystal Wave design.
