Samsung R610 rocks Blu–Ray on–the–move

You could be forgiven for thinking all laptops these days have to be cheaper than a KFC bargain bucket and be called a netbook. Well, Samsung’s

The new machine comes with a monster 16in screen with 16:9 aspect ratio and a Blu–Ray drive inside for watching hi–def movies on–the–move.

On top of that you get Nvidia graphics, 7.1 surround sound for annoying fellow train travellers, Bluetooth 2.0, 4 USB ports and a 3–in–1 card reader for shovelling all your snaps on too.

Being a top–notch Sammy, Vista Home Premium is under the hood, but we say don’t let that put you off. This beast is all about movies after all.

It’s due next month for a MacBook–bothering £799. Don’t bother saving for Christmas pressies, just get one of these instead. Still, if you’d prefer a netbook, then have a squizz at our free netbooks feature now.
