Samsung reveals Series 6 notebook

Samsung has launched its Series 6 notebooks, which it has said offer enhanced security and durability. This is due to Samsung including features such as Intel vPro technology, giving systems administrators remote control of business machines in use by employees. You can also have fingerprint readers installed and a ‘Trusted Platform Module’ enabling hardware encryption of data stored on the system.
The Series 6 uses Intel Core i5 processors, and run Windows 7 which could cause some corporate businesses a problem who are yet to upgrade. Samsung claims that both battery life and screen brightness are better than ‘normal’ notebooks; they even claim the battery life will maintain 80 per cent capacity after 1,000 charges and the screen is said to be 40 per cent brighter than other systems.
Very usefully, the notebooks offer USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, in addition to an ExpressCard slot. An optional docking station allows users to connect a mouse, keyboard and monitor via one connector.
The chassis they have used is designed to be durable, the Duracase ProMG chassis, which uses magnesium to reinforce the back, as well as anti-shock hard drives which integrate a free-fall sensor, enabling the Series 6 to survive drops of up to 76cm.
The Series 6 laptops start from £625 and are available now.
