Samsung's flagship Series 9 notebook beats Acer's Aspire S5 and Apple's MacBook Air to the current 'world's thinnest notebook' title.
The 13.3in model weighs in at 1.16kg and measures 12.9mm thick.
The Series 9 notebook will be available to Australians in early June. Pricing is $1499 for the 13.3in model and $1899 for the 15in.
It features a backlit LED keyboard in a single-shell aluminium casing.
The prototype notebook runs on Intel's Core i5 chips but a Samsung spokesperson hinted it may be upgraded to Intel's Ivy Bridge before release.
Samsung has also debuted the Series 7 all-in-one desktop PC. It carries a 23in full HD display with a 90 degree tilting angle.
It comes with a wireless keyboard, wireless optical mouse and 2 JBL channel analogue speakers.
It boasts a touch user interface, 1GB memory and AMD Radeon HD6470M graphics card.
Samsung recently unveiled its Series 5 Ultra notebook, a performance laptop with built-in optical disc drive, 500GB HDD, 16GB SSD and 1GB AMD Radeon HD7550M graphics card.
The 14in notebook weighs 1.84kg and is 20.9mm thick, retailing for $1499. It also carries up to 8GB RAM, as well as HDMI and VGA inputs.
Slate PC is Samsung's response to the tablet phenomenon in the workplace. It arrived ahead of Samsung's Galaxy Tab consumer offerings late last year.
The Slate runs on Windows 7 and Intel's Core i5 processor, weighing 860g and measuring 12.85mm thick. It boasts a 64GB SSD with up to 7 hours battery life. It comes out of the box with a bluetooth keyboard, stylus and docking cradle, retailing for $1699.
The Series 5 Smart Station debuted in January this year and is the next iteration of its Central Station part HD monitor, part wireless docking station. The upgraded Smart Station integrates with mobile devices as well as notebooks, peripherals, and network and AV.
It has a USB 3.0 hub, mobile high definition link, full HD 1080p, HDTV functionality with a built-in TV tuner and integrated wireless display technology. It is available in 24in and 27in models.
