Samsung R440 & R480 Enters Philippine Notebook Market

Although Samsung belatedly entered the Philippine laptop market last year, their N150 and N220 models easily penetrated the market with a no-fuss netbook at an affordable price.

Now, Samsung Philippines refreshes their N150 & N220 with the N150 Plus & N220 Plus, respectively. They are also entering the Notebook game with the R440 & R480 models.

Both R440 and R480 are powered by built-in Intel ® Core ™ i-5 Processor with content creators in mind. Whether it be for creating high definition (HD) video, composing digital music, editing photos, or playing the most newest PC games, the Samsung notebook line can cope with your productivity level.

On the aesthetics, you would appreciate Samsung’s new Touch of Color crystal finish and scratch resistant Samsung casing. Add to that the LED touchpad lighting.

The NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card and HD LED displays sharp images and bold colors with various display options at 16:9 aspect ratio guaranteeing no skewing and distortion in HD.

Other included applications in this gadget:

  • AnyPC remote PC access application
  • Phoenix FailSafe ® software
  • USB sleep-and-charge port (R480)
  • Fn+F8 keys - super Silent Mode (R440)

The Samsung R-Series notebooks are the complete all-rounders of the computing world – offering outstanding mobile performance and entertainment in a distinctive S-pattern and durable design,” says Jefferson Cheng, SEPCO Product Manager for Notebooks and Netbooks.
Moreover, both R440 and R480 notebooks have each been awarded the leading environmental and usability standard, TCO Certified and are ECO RoHS compliant, mercury free and consumes less power due to the LED backlit displays.
