Samsung abuses 'ultra portable' privilege with P200


New rule: no using the term “ultra portable” to describe a notebook that weighs “a mere 1.89kg” — roughly 4.2 pounds — and has a battery that tops out at just barely over three hours. Let’s rightfully refer to that as “thin-and-light” like everyone else.

At any rate, the P200 Ultra Portable Notebook PC from Samsung was just announced at CeBIT. It’s got an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 12.1-inch widescreen display that “provides up to 30% more viewing area than traditional screens” (What? Widescreens are the new traditional screens now), Protect-o-Edge casing that protects-o your laptop-o, an integrated 1.3-megapixel camera, and Radeon Xpress 1250 graphics.

Oh, I almost forgot! The keyboard is sprinkled with some magic fairy dust that Samsung calls “Silver Nano Technology,” which keeps the keyboard “completely bacteria free.” Price and shipping date haven’t been released.
