We're just talking LED-backlit LCD panels at the moment, but with any luck, they'll appear in your favorite laptop someday soon. Samsung's trio measure in at 18.4-inches (1,920 x 1,080), 16.0-inches (1,366 x 768), and a more traditional 15.4-inches (1,440 x 900). The latter boasts a White-LED backlighting for a whopping 10,000:1 contrast (at least), 300cd/m2 brightness, 45% color saturation, and power consumption of just 2 Watts or less when playing video. Expect the 16:9 pair to hit mass production in the first half of 2008 while the white-LED mofo should arrive before 2008 is through. Full specs after the break.
