Samsung is back in the U.S. notebook business

Samsung has announced a new set of notebooks and are hoping to steal a little of Apple’s thunder (good luck with that one!). The new line-up should see some pretty sleek, thin, lightweight laptops with loads of power – definitely nothing to sneeze at. Samsung’s main target is the Macbook Air and it is hoping that its new X-Series netbook will the a “Macbook Air Killer.” Really, guys? Everything seems to be a “killer” of some sort these days though many products fail to even bruise each other – let’s see if Samsung is up to the task. The X360 will be going for $2,499 and will be carrying 128GB of solid state goodness. Weighing in at 2.8 pounds, your spaghetti arms should have no problems with it. The X360 also claims to have 6 to 10 hours of battery life depending on usage – not bad at all. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to the MacBook Air this looks like it might be a good contender, but a killer it is not.
