Samsung's 14.1-inch QX410 laptop now on sale at Best Buy

Well, in Canada at least. Sammy's QX410 is listed as "backordered" on America's Best Buy portal, but it's bound to make its online debut in short order -- in fact, we're hearing that they're already popping up on retail shelves. For those in need of a refresher, this 14.1-incher ships with a silver lining (and enclosure, too), 2.53GHz Core i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 640GB hard drive, dual-layer DVD burner, SD / SDHC / SDXC card reader, NVIDIA's 512MB GeForce 310M GPU (Optimus enabled) and an inbuilt webcam. You'll also find gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, three USB 2.0 ports and a battery that's supposedly good for up to seven hours. Oh, and did we mention it includes a WiMAX model for tapping into Sprint's widening 4G network? Best Buy's US site is estimating a ship date of "one to two weeks," and you can pre-order now if you're sold already for $829.99.
