Samsung Series 3 lineup spotted in New York trade show

New Samsung budget notebook series coming with reportedly high-class cosmetics for low-end prices
Allen Ngo,

While the Samsung Series 9 models are aimed at the high-end spectrum, budget notebook buyers can now look forward to the more wallet-friendly Samsung Series 3 lineup of notebooks.

According to Engadget, a 12.1-inch Series 3 laptop was unexpectedly seen at the Digital Experience tradeshow in New York yesterday. The model will reportedly be just one out of many in the Series 3 lineup, which will include a range of screen sizes sporting an even wider range of processors like the AMD Fusion APUs up to a Core i7 CPU.

As for the chassis, the Series 3 will attempt to replicate some features of the Series 9, including the “brushed metal” look with less overt plastics. Samsung may be attempting to bring some of that high class feel to the budget Series 3 lineup.

Samsung has yet to officially announce the Series 3 lineup, however, so prices and release dates are still mysteries. Engadget is expecting a rough price range of $599 up to $819 depending on the models and features.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s.
