Samsung Aura Notebook Breaks Cover

The R20 supports Intel chips ranging from the Celeron M right up to a Core 2 Duo T7400 2.16GHz processor. There are two SODIM slots, giving the R20 a maximum memory configuration of 4GB – ideal for running Vista! There are hard disk options from 60 – 160GB, which should keep even the most space hungry mobile users happy.

The 14.1in widescreen display sports a native resolution of 1,280 x 800 and features a high contrast coating, making it ideal for watching video. There’s also an integrated Super-Multi DVD writer for backing up or loading just about every optical format currently available – Blu-ray and HD DVD excepted.

There’s 802.11b/g Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 2.0 EDR on offer for wireless connectivity, while a 56k modem and integrated 10/100 Ethernet adapter are also present. The R20 will ship with a four cell battery as standard, but an eight cell extended pack will be available if you need more “on the go” power.

With a weight of 2.39kg the R20 won’t be the lightest notebook around, but it does weigh almost exactly the same amount as a MacBook – what a coincidence!

I should be getting an R20 Aura in the lab very soon, so check back to get the full low down on Samsung’s new sleek and stylish mobile machine.
