  • Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a real hands-on look as Samsung PR reps were very protective over the new wunderkind notebook. Insisting that the devices on hand were just prototypes, we were also advised that run times might not reflect the final device when it is released during the second quarter of 2011.

  • Nevertheless, I managed to get about a foot away and was given a brief tour of how the notebook slides open and operating Windows 7 Home Premium on the 10.1-inch touch screen.

  • If you have to pick a category, this machine definitely falls more on the netbook side of the spectrum than a tablet. For those who like to navigate on touch screens but prefer physical keyboards for productivity, this might be the laptop for you.
