The Korean electronics giant has unveiled two new Samsung series 5 laptops, the 15.6-inch series 5 notebook and the baby 14-inch series 5 500 notebook, which bolster its mobile PC line. In addition, new Intel processors will headline in series 3, series 5 and series 9 units. Both new series 5 laptops will have a third generation Intel Core processor and a few spanking entertainment features.
