Apple blocking Samsung sales, again.

Apple's lawyers filed a preliminary injunction Monday afternoon that would ban the sale of eight Samsung mobile devices that were recently found to have infringed on the company's patents.

The targeted devices include the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge, Galaxy Prevail, and four separate versions of the Galaxy S II.

After a three-day period of deliberations, the jury in the landmark patent suit found that Samsung had infringed on Apple's patents in a number of cases, awarding Apple $1 billion in damages. Samsung has vowed to appeal, if Judge Lucy Koh doesn't throw out the verdict, according to CNN.

Legal experts at the well-known Groklaw blog have pointed out several inconsistencies in the jury's verdict that could put Apple's big win in doubt - including the fact that some of the evidence was apparently ignored by the panel, and subsequent interviews with jurors that suggest the judge's instructions on damages were not followed.

According to the Guardian, Judge Koh will make a final decision on the case within a few weeks.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
