Samsung creates world’s smallest dual core notebook


Okay, so Samsung Electronics is in the news again, but this time we’re not going to be talking about a cell phone with DMB, multi-megapixel camera, or anything like that. The Korean gadget maker is releasing the Q35, reportedly the world’s smallest laptop featuring an Intel Core Duo processor. In keeping with being small, the screen is a 12.1-inch widescreen (1280 x 800), and the notebook barely tips the scales at 1.9kg.

Technical features include the T2700 Core Duo processor, an Intel 945GM chipset, an 80GB hard disk drive, and 512MB of 667MHz DDR 2 SDRAM. Of course, it runs on Windows XP, and despite its tiny size, Samsung has managed to include a DVD burner in the package as well.

Connectivity is pretty standard with Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11a/b/g, and 10/100Mbps Ethernet. Other highlights include an HD audio system with SRS 3D technology, a six-in-one memory card reader, PC Card slot, FireWire and a couple of USB 2.0 ports. Battery life is pretty good at seven hours of juice.
