Samsung's outlay? Good. Officially unveiled today over in the UK, the company's new 23-inch U250 and 20-inch U200 all-in-one PCs are going where loads of AIO machines already have: the multitouch galaxy. The former offers up a full 1080p resolution, while the latter steps down to 1,600 x 900; both of 'em ship with Windows 7 Home Premium, and the company would have you know that these two mark its "first venture into the home PC market in the UK." Regrettably, the excitement was tempered by the lack of a real specification sheet, but we're told they'll ship later this month for those who couldn't care less about nuts, bolts, gigahertz and megabytes.
SAMSUNG ADDS A TOUCH OF CLASS TO PC MARKET WITH NEW ALL-IN-ONE
Scintillating style coming to the UK in stunning 20" and 23" models
London, UK – May 11, 2010 - Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a market leader in consumer electronics and world leader in IT technology, today announced its entry into the UK desktop PC market with the launch of two new ultra-stylish touch-screen All-in-One PCs for the home; the powerful, super-slim 23 inch U250 and ultra-stylish 20 inch U200.
Designed to bring the multi-touch functionality of the Microsoft Windows® 7 Home Premium operating system to life, the full 1080p HD screen U250 and 1600 x 900 resolution U200 offer users an unparalleled multimedia touch-screen computing experience.
The new All-in-One designs combine the monitor and computer in one slick unit, offering a smaller footprint to help save space on the work surface. Samsung's new All-in-One PCs can serve as the focal point for family home entertainment whilst looking great - the 23 inch U250 features a cutting-edge, slim line design and the 20 inch U200 is curvaceous, bold and beautiful.
The incredibly intuitive display helps the U250 and U200 amplify the capabilities of Microsoft Windows® 7 Home Premium's multi-touch functions, offering users a powerful and fully touch optimised PC experience for editing photos, playing games and viewing video content.
Graham Long, Vice President of Samsung's IT Business Division, said "Through the new U250 and U200, we're offering customers the ultimate touch-screen computing experience for the home.
"We've combined class-leading design with a simple to use interactive experience to create the next generation of home PC. We're confident that the look and performance of these new models will prove popular with a wide range of home computing users."
The launch of the new All-in-One range marks Samsung's first venture into the home PC market in the UK. Graham Long added "The sector has been growing steadily since 2005, and we decided to use the strengths from our market-leading netbooks and notebooks to create a Samsung solution for the home, perfect for complimenting our Note PC offerings."
The Samsung U200 and U250 will be available exclusively at PC World and PCWorld.co.uk from May 2010.
