Haier's 15.4-inch W51 laptop completes Merom hat trick

Haier completes their trifecta of new laptops with this 15.4-incher set to join the 12.1-inch and 14-inch laptops announced last week at the Korean Electronics Show. Starting with Intel's T5600 Core 2 Duo processor, the W51 features a 1280x800 WXGA widescreen display, Intel 945GM with optional 128MB of nVIDIA GeForce go 6400 graphics, a CDROM / DVD combo drive, an 80GB disk, and 512MB DDR2 RAM to get you started. Like the others, we still don't have any dates or prices. However, with this line-up of lappies building upon their white-goods, flat panels, cellphones, and other consumer electronics, well, let's just say that Philips and Samsung had best keep an eye on this Chinese powerhouse.
