(mobilemag) - Either Samsung can't decide which side of the next-gen optical disc fence they're on or they want to capture every last corner of the market they possibly can. The Samsung M55 multimedia laptop is already available with the Blu-Ray drive, but the Korean electronics giant is sharing some love, now offering the same lappy but with an HD-DVD burner.
Clearly designed with movie, music, and games in mind, the HD-DVD-ified Samsung M55 boasts a formidable 17-inch display, Core 2 Duo T7200 processor, 2GB RAM, 120GB SATA HDD, 256MB GeForce 7600 graphics, Bluetooth, and WiFi. Look for it at your favorite retailer in Korea for "slightly less than Ђ2,430." That works out to about $3200 of American green.
