Starting from today, buyers of Samsung's Series 9 laptop will have a choice of colors, with the Windows machine now available in silver as well as the existing "Mineral Ash black." According to a press release on the company's Korean site, the new color is designed to appeal to young customers — the silver version of the 15-inch Series 9 is available immediately, with a similar makeover for the 13-inch model expected in early August.

An ultrabook in all but name, the latest iteration of the 15-inch laptop is just 0.58 inches thick, weighing in at 3.5 pounds. Most importantly, it features a 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge version of Intel's Core i5 processor, a feature added to the model early last month.
