with the exception of Apple MacBooks which have fewer distinct models with longer life-span, most laptops or notebook models are NOT universal, with slight variations on regional characteristics on base models . in South Korea all are now called notebooks, with ultra-book (thin but powerful) as the current pop synonym following net-book (portable cloud-computing) and ultra-slim (like macbook air).

as this is a soft-core Tech BLog, specifications are simply concise, only to suggest you a handful of sweet goodies among a stash flowing out onto the market . and nowadays it would be safe to deduct the next batch will emerge in the next Season .

Korea Tech BLog always accentuates portable power – for I believe you have to play (short-of the most extensive) games between work, yet in affordable range to consider resale price .
and after a stylish introduction on HP notebooks, here a much different sort of notebook with quite price gap 0o0

among all the inter-national bashing between SamSung and Apple .. something unexpected happens when placed next to the revered MacBook Air : suddenly, in such epidome of snobbery, no notebook on Earth can compare with this masterpiece – beginning with looks alone .. as the Gods looked down onto humans on Mount Olympus . SamSung probably made this to show Apple what they can do .. but all for the hefty price of almost THREE bargain notebooks -_-
