The Samsung R480 features an Intel Core i3 processor.
The laptop weighs 5.07 pounds, with a full-size keyboard.
The Samsung R480 also includes a 14-inch LED HD screen with 1,366 by 768 resolution.
A Stylish Look
The new Samsung laptops embrace a larger PC trend of creating "stylish" devices with a slick look that Samsung dubs "Crystal Wave."
Audio-visual hardware includes HD audio and 0.3-megapixel Web camera.
Graphics come courtesy of an Intel GMA 4500MHD.
The laptop includes a Blu-ray optical drive.
Some of the specs of the R480 are matched by its larger counterparts in the series, the R580 and R780, which feature an Intel Core i5 processor and 15.6- and 17.3-inch displays, respectively.
Walking the Line
The R480, along with Samsungs other new laptops, are intended to straddle the line between desktop replacement and mobility-centric device.
The R480, along with the R580 and R780, runs 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium.
