If Samsung's latest cadre of netbooks don't have the oomph for your professional mobile computing needs, perhaps you'll find the new R30 and R80 series models more to your liking. The R430 and R530 laptops are 14- and 15.6-inch laptops both relying on Intel's Core 2 Duo T6600 processor, 320GB hard drives, and 4GB of DDR3 memory, and good 'ol GMA 4500MHD graphics. The R480, R580 and R780 models are 14-, 15.6-, and 17-inch, 16:9, LED-backlit models rocking Core i5 430M processors. Storage gets bumped to 500GB on this series, while the larger of the two get GeForce GT graphics as well as Blu-ray drives. All entrants in both series offer 802.11b/g/n wireless and are available with Samsung's "Touch of Color" hues, which will surely earn you some jealous looks in the boardroom. Both R30 models will set you back $670, the R480 is $849, R580 is $949, and the range-topping R780 is, curiously, $20 cheaper: $929. That and the R30 models are available now. The other two R80s arrive in March.
