Rumors started appearing over the weekend about an NVIDIA ION-based Samsung laptop that would be launching this week. Today, we have a photo of the unreleased Samsung N510 notebook thanks to an inside source that e-mailed us a picture to leak out to consumers. This is of course after two European retailers posted product pages for a Samsung N510 model over the weekend. Those pages have been removed, but you can still find some details by checking out Googles cached versions. Here is a picture of a real working Samsung N510 notebook, which will be officially announced tomorrow if online rumors are true.
So here’s what we know so far. The laptop with have an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, and the NVIDIA ION chipset with GeForce 9400M graphics. It will have a 160GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM, and ship with 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth. The computer will have a 6 cell battery, and if it’s anything like the Samsung N120, we’d expect it to get about 6 hours of battery life.
At least one store had a list price of €462.00 or about $650 for the netbook/notebook excluding VAT. The estimated ship date is June 30th and our source confirmed that as being true as well.
