Samsung Releases Apple MBA and Lenovo X301 Fighter

Samsung used this year’s IFA in Berlin, Germany as a launchpad for its new MacBook Air and Thinkpad X301 competitor with its very own X360. The X360 sports a 13.3″ screen and weighs in at a scant (and MBA beating) 2.8lbs while sporting 3 USB ports, an ExpressCard slot, a multi-format card reader, a fingerprint reader, and an ethernet port. For processing power, Samsung uses the ULV series processor to maximize battery life and claims run times of up to 10 hours. Thickness ranges from 0.66 inches to 1.2 inches. The only choices for storage in the X360 is either a 64GB SSD or a 128GB SSD, costing  around $2200 or $2900 respectively. Unfortunately, the Samsung won’t be available in North America, but will be available worldwide starting in October.
