Samsung Series 9 WQHD Win8 ultrabook
Google searches yielded nothing.. Has anyone heard anything about when, or even if, this will ever come out?
This is literally the nicest laptop I have ever seen.
From what I can gather from these articles:
-2560 x 1440, matte screen with crazy near 180 degree viewing angles.
-Windows 8 portion looks to scale extremely well at high resolution. very pleasing to the eye, even in pics/vids
-nice build quality and design
-a nice huge trackpad (necessary as it likely wouldn't be touch screen)
-2 usb ports, display port, hdmi, headphone cable
Here is the Engadget article and vid
I guess the lack of a touch screen would be the biggest drawback. I am hoping windows 8 will evolve over time to work better with a trackpad with good drivers. Things like the close app gesture are awkward on a touch screen, even more so on a trackpad or with a mouse.
I am still weighing this laptop vs. the utility of something like a Lenovo thinkpad tablet 2 (2 completely different machines, I know), as I really like how the thinkpad looks but it's still a business tool and super portable. Digitizer opens a whole new world too.
