Samsung Debuts Germ-free R270 Notebook
 
The anti-bacterial coating on the keyboard keeps the R270 germ-freeSamsung today unveiled its new R270 notebook to augment its R-Series; the notebook features an HD screen and 3D sound. With a special coating on the keyboard, Samsung claims the notebook is virtually germ-free.
 
Powered by an Intel Core 2 processor (the exact one is still a secret) and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 card for dedicated graphics, the R270 is designed to be a gamers’ and movie buffs’ delight. The 17.3in LED screen gives the notebook extended battery life, while the 16:9 ratio display makes for excellent contrast and colour.
 
The 4W stereo speakers with subwoofer create 3D sound effect, providing perfect ambience for home entertainment. The inclusion of Samsung’s Sound Retrieval System further enhances the SRS virtual surround sound effect when audio is routed through headphones.
 
The notebook does not lack on the connectivity side of things either. It has four USB 2.0 ports and a USB – eSATA combination port that allows transfers of up to 3GB/second. Samsung has even kept the need to charge external devices in mind – it has supplied the notebook with a chargeable USB port that can be used even when the system is turned off.
 
With all of these high-end features, Samsung has also paid attention to the health aspect of things; the keyboard comes coated with an anti-bacterial layer which reportedly keeps the keyboard and the laptop virtually germ-free. Though bizarre, it does sound like a good inclusion as most of us are not too concerned about keeping our laptops clear of germs.
 
The R270 will hit retail in the UK sometime in July, though pricing details have not been revealed yet.

SLI man
Hey Guys,

I recently bought a new Asus F6VE laptop and it originally came with one 2GB Nanya 800Mhz DDR2 SO-DIMM ram sticks and decided to add in a new Corsair 2GB DDR2 667Mhz SO-DIMM ram. At the moment it runs and recognises 4GB but then it freezes, anyone know of any compatibility issues with the Nanya brand? Or why it might be doing this?

Cheers

They are different frequencies, that will not help. ie one is 800mhz, the other is 667mhz.

Spot on, it will depend a whole lot on how flexible the mobo allows the cpu/ram to be.

Some laptops u can get away with it, quality of the ram usually making a difference if ur going higher with the clock. POS ram usually allows an underclock from it's stock - as long as it's stated as being able to. Even expensive quality memory won't do it unless stated (or unless lucky).

Usually best, if ur not up with messing around with them, to go with the rating the existing memory is, or higher. If it works lower - ur fortunate, not a gamble I'd spend cash on tho.
