August 29, 2005 Samsung will debut a promising new notebook concept at the upcoming IFA Consumer Electronics Show in Berlin which opens September 2. It would be easy to accuse Samsung of continuing to play the same “mine’s bigger than yours” game it plays with camera phones, but the details emerging surrounding the new 19 inch notebook suggest it is indeed a new portable computer paradigm. The M70 will be a logical desktop replacement for those with big screen needs as the screen can be removed and has a dock which enables it to stand upright, giving the notebook two personalities – one as a large “laptop for use in transit and the other as a conveniently transportable desktop which can have discrete components. So whilst the M70 will be the first 19-inch notebook in the world, it could be seen as a new conveniently portable desktop and might be seen as a landmark design in the evolving form factor of the computer.
