Samsung announces UK touch-screen PC launches

Samsung announces UK touch-screen PC launches -

Uncle Samsung will be flogging two of its new and pretty touch-screen PCs in the UK come May this year, it was announced today. They are the 23-inch U250 and the 20-inch U200.

Both "All-in-One" home desktops aim to take advantage of the Windows 7 touch functionality, with the U250 boasting a full 1080p HD screen and the U200 offering a 1600 x 900 resolution. Samsung claims that the touch-screens are its first real effort to get a grip on the home PC market in the UK.

The U250, shown off at this year's CES, runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 and has a combined memory of 3GB DDR3. While Samsung's UK press are scoffing their faces with Easter eggs this Good Friday, we've had to do some digging around, and have found that the 250 should be coming shipped to Britain with a 500GB hard drive.

Reports across the Wibble say that the U200, the U250's wussy little brother, packs 2GB of RAM and ships with a 320GB drive.

It seems that both the U250 and the U200 will boast an NVIDIA GeForce G310M graphics card, as well as assorted gubbins such as a webcam, a digital card reader and a bunch of USB ports thrown in for good measure.

You'll be able to buy the PCs for a mystery undisclosed price at PC World in May. In the meantime, here is a picture of the U200, shrunk from the original modest 50mb, .bmp filesize:
