Samsung with a 10 core PC?

The other day, Apple announced it was giving the option for up to two quad-core processors, equaling a staggering 8 core desktop machine. Now it looks like Samsung is going to offer the option of 2 five-core processors for a combined total of 10 cores, running at 3.0GHZ.  The 45nm Hi-K processors based on the Intel® Core microarchitecture is in the new Intel 3-series, which hasn’t be released yet. The new desktop system are supposed to hit the market in korea later this year, and maybe hit the Americas by early 2008.

ThinkPad X61 Tablet – Japan Release

The ThinkPad X61 laptop computer is a sleek, powerful, practical and cheap machine. Earlier in the year, a similar model was released, but this new model is a much improved version of an already great computer.

This laptop has Intel Centrino Pro technology, CPU Core 2 Duo L7500 (1.6GHz). It comes loaded with 1GB RAM, Wireless LAN function and a 160GB HDD (twice the size as the previous) This also comes preinstalled with Windows Vista, Home Premium Edition.

This nice little Laptop also comes with a built in fingertip sensor, to ensure the protection of your important files. It has an average battery of 3-7 hours, and dimensions of 274× depth 244× height 33mm, and a weight of only 1.85kg (just over 4lbs).

One of the biggest features is the improved screen technology. The FFS SXGA+ TFT liquid crystal panel is easy to see even under the direct sunlight, has a wide field of vision angle, and anti-reflection to ensure correct viewing in any condition.

Now this little beauty packs one hell of a punch, is sleek and light, and for around $2,300, isn’t that expensive. So whats the downside? It doesn’t have an optical drive.

There are currently no dates on the release outside of Japan, but there is one on the way.
