It’s official! According to their press release (which I have put at the end of this page for your convenience) they just announced the launch of their P580 laptop. This particular laptop is made with professionals in mind.
Let’s take a walk on the Samsung side for a moment.
We’ll kick off this intro with the processor that this particular laptop is flaunting.
When one chooses this laptop, they can rest assured that they will have the latest processor technology currently available on the market, none other than Intel’s Core i3 processor. This is a speedy little sucker, even though it is the lower end processor for this particular series of Intel CPUs.
There is an additional option for those who want to enlist an Intel Core i5 for their laptop, which is definitely a great upgrade for power users.
It’s all in the screen…
The screen of this laptop is also a new innovation that Samsung rolled out for their professional notebooks. It’s a 15.3″ LED lit screen, which cuts down on glare more than other popular, competing laptops. This is often a problem for laptop users, but it looks like Samsung stepped up to the plate with this one.
More power…just what Tim Allen wants!
If Tim Allen was to choose a laptop to buy these days, it would probably be this one as it is directly targeted towards busy professionals. Multi-tasking with the Samsung P580 is definitely much better than before. It contains a gig of ram, as well as a nice, yet speedy hard drive.
Worried about someone jacking your competitive edge if your laptop contains crucial docs?
Don’t be! You can rest assured that Samsung has taken the latest security measures into consideration when they were developing the P580. They have even said that the security of this laptop is pretty concrete.
Worried about poor graphics?
Samsung has entrusted NVIDIA for their graphics needs on this laptop. For those of you unfamiliar with NVIDIA, they are simply one of the best graphics card makers the world has yet to see. This is often a choice for gamers as you really do get the sharp graphics that we need with modern technology.

SAMSUNG LAUNCHES P-SERIES BUSINESS NOTEBOOK FOR PROFESSIONALS ON THE GO
P580 combines state-of-the-art technology and unrivalled performance.
LONDON, UK – May 11, 2010 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a market leader in consumer electronics and world leader in IT technology, today announces the launch of the Samsung P580, a new addition to its highly successful P-Series of professional laptops and notebooks. The P580 has been designed to offer busy professionals the very latest, state-of-the-art connectivity, reliability and security to help them maintain productivity whilst on the move.
Samsung’s new 15.6″ P580 notebook has been designed to be the perfect IT companion for workers on the go or those looking for a high performing notebook for the home office. The P580 features a classic Samsung cutting edge design, packaged in a highly durable, tactile, sleek and lightweight chassis that makes remote or mobile working easy and pleasurable.
Graham Long, Vice President of Samsung’s IT Business Division, said: “Business users expect practicality coupled with performance at a price that won’t break the bank. Whether you’re at home, in the office or on the go, the new notebook is the perfect business tool for those who want a first class PC experience.”
Landmark new features include next generation processor performance from Intel’s new Core i3 Processor (Calpella), NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GT Graphics processor and a stunning, non-gloss LED backlit LCD display. The P580 is also protected by heightened industry-standard security, making it the obvious choice for business users looking to gain a competitive edge.
Samsung’s new P580 notebook is one of the most technologically advanced, competitively priced, professional notebooks on the market today. Featuring the new, super-fast Intel Calpella Platform with integrated Intel Core i5 Processor, Samsung’s new notebook offers the kind of speed, performance and reliability usually found only on a desktop PC.
Most notable is the ease with which users can multi-task, allowing them to work across multiple applications simultaneously with no ’screen-freeze’ or lag.
The model features market-leading NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics cards and a dedicated 1GB gDDR3 memory which, combined with the stunning LED backlit display, offer improved clarity and speed whilst conserving battery power.
The device comes with Windows® 7 Professionalas standard, offering all the benefits of Microsoft’s latest OS such as 20 percent faster booting time and greater efficiencies in power and memory consumption; key considerations for mobile workers. Nanocell sound reduction technology ensures near-silent running at all times.
The Samsung P580 exhibits a stunning ‘comfort-grip’ chassis, featuring a stylish and modern-looking rubber paint which makes the device extremely hard-wearing and scratch-resistant. The device’s good look is also resistant to shock damage as the chassis is protected by a free-fall sensor which freezes applications to protect the notebook if dropped.
The non-gloss HD LED backlit LCD display is easy on the eye. The Isolate Keyboard features 17-key, full-sized numeric keypads which make typing and calculating really easy.
Samsung’s P580 notebook has been designed to give users the reassurance and peace-of-mind that its data will be protected wherever it is. The model features a host of security features including Phoenix FailSafe, a theft-deterrent service that offers users the ability to protect, track and manage their notebook, should it be stolen or lost. If data is compromised, users can retrieve and erase any critical material remotely – ensuring that thieves cannot view sensitive documents. Users are also able to secure their data with both BIOS and HDD passwords*.
Samsung’s new notebook claims a number of new features which makes it a pleasure to use. Connecting to the Internet could not be easier as the device offers Wi-Fi or LAN, high speed USB 2.0 or eSATA connection, allowing users to share files quickly and easily. eSATA connectivity is supported by an external HDD, allowing the reading and writing of data at a speed of up to 3Gb per second, while enhanced Bluetooth 2.1 featuring Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) transmission makes paring of devices swift and easy.
The USB 2.0 port can also be used to charge other external devices such as mobile phones or MP3 players – even if the notebook is switched off – perfect for business travelers who need to charge devices whilst they rest.
