New Samsung Device Bridges Gap Between PCs and Tablets
Samsung Electronics has launched a personal computer that combines the advantages of a tablet and a laptop, it said Wednesday.

tablet and the performance of a laptop. It comes armed with Microsoft's
Windows 7 OS, enabling users to work in Office programs like Word and
Excel, but at a fraction of the size of normal laptops.
"Since it weighs just 860 g, people can carry this anywhere they go, as
though it were an [Apple] iPad or [Samsung] Galaxy Tab," said Nam
Sung-woo, vice president of Samsung Electronics.

seconds using a flash memory chip. With the touchscreen function, users

keyboard to type out documents. The device costs around W1.7 million
