Samsung unwraps MacBook Air beater

Samsung promised its X360 "premium" laptop would be "lighter than Air" - it isn't, but it's a smartly spec'd thin'n'light notebook nonetheless.

See front page:

I'd only buy an American laptop. Good luck finding one! Seriously, it's a mighty thin notebook and it HAS to be way cheaper than a Maclaptopthin model.

Plus you don't have to wear a black shirt and trendy specs if you buy a Samsung.

What makes a laptop American? American designed and American built? If so, you'll be plumb out of luck!
