options when it comes to finding that special 17.3-inch laptop in your life, but we're thrilled to see at least one more PC maker putting those oddly sized LCD panels to use. Quietly announced across the pond, the R720 is the natural successor to last summer's smash hit, the R710. Said machine sports a LED-backlit panel, ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 4650 graphics, stereo speakers (with "subwoofer"), a full-sized numeric keypad next to the QWERTY layout, four USB 2.0 sockets and Windows Vista Home Premium running the show. Sadly, it seems as if we'll have to wait patiently on more details (price, release, HDD size, etc.), but we get the idea this one's headed for UK stores first, anyway.
Update: Samsung's UK PR agency pinged us with the following details:
- SSP's including VAT will start from £599.
- HDD is 320GB
- Available from July in the UK
