Samsung reportedly will end sales of its Windows laptops, Chromebooks in Europe
A new report quotes a Samsung spokesperson as saying the company plans to stop selling its laptops, which include its Windows notebooks, in the European markets.
PC Advisor quotes a Samsung spokesperson as saying:
Samsung has released some impressive Windows notebooks in the past. At CES 2014 in January, the company revealed the ATIV Book 9, which had up to 14 hours of battery life (closer to 9 hours, upon release) in its large 15.6-inch case. What do you think about Samsung getting out of the notebook business in Europe?

No more Surface ads full of Euromodels dancing thru scenes that look like Mentos commercials.
And please! "Windows" & "Microsoft" are not cool! "Surface" is. Stop deflating the positive impact of your ads by reminding everyone your awesome product is tied to that creaky old company that sold junk like Vista and Me. It made your parents cringe so why would anyone today want to buy more of the same?
Lenovo of course being the exception to the rule, but they're still not sure how to improve the X1, and those already are incredibly expensive in the EU
At least they are not getting out of the PC business at all like they hinted previously ... For now.
In all honesty though, I never saw a Samsung laptop in the wild.
Their ATIV line would sell better if they pushed it lol, they ain't pushing it as hard as their galaxy tablets which would explain the low sales... Sad state affairs however as Sony & Samsung made decent laptops. Who will start pulling out next I wonder.
