Samsung announced the 17-inch Series 7 Chronos (model 700Z7C) high-performance laptop with a sleek, elegant design, 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and innovative ExpressCache technology. It offers stereo sound through JBL speakers, premium 2.1 system graphics and a full HD LED display, making it an ideal choice for users unwilling to compromise on entertainment and multimedia.
Enhanced Speed and Performance
Powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor, the 17-inch Series 7 Chronos delivers unrivalled speed right from the start, making it easy for users to accomplish tasks ranging from Internet browsing to watching videos. This new quad-core processor empowers users to speed through even the most demanding tasks and effortlessly multitask between applications, thanks to Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. Through Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0.1 users can also access an automatic burst of speed whenever they need it.
The 17-inch Series 7 Chronos also offers quick start-up times and powerful overall performance, including web browsing speeds that are twice as fast (using Microsoft Internet Explorer), thanks to its innovative ExpressCache technology, developed by Diskeeper, which provides 8GB of flash memory on the motherboard. Additionally, the inclusion of Samsung's Fast Start technology means that the laptop wakes up from hybrid sleep mode in as little as just two seconds, while Quick Boot has the notebook ready to go — from cold — in as little as 19 seconds, saving users valuable seconds of startup time.
The performance of the 17-inch Series 7 Chronos is further enhanced by the notebook's extended battery life. In addition to uninterrupted performance of up to 8 hours on a single charge (based on MobileMark test scores), Samsung's Battery Life Plus technology keeps 80% of the cell's original capacity, even after 1,500 charges. This results in a battery that can last up to five times longer than other notebooks and ensures that CHRONOS users always have the power they need to be productive, anytime, anywhere.
Optimal Audio Visual Experience
The 17-inch Series 7 Chronos provides trendsetting consumers with the latest advances in multimedia technology. Powerful JBL stereo speakers, a sub-woofer and HD audio processing result in an unrivaled auditory experience. Through this new audio integration with JBL, Series 7 Chronos users will enjoy clearer, richer sound, deeper bass and greater tone articulation when playing music and movies.
The 17-inch Series 7 Chronos provides a premium visual experience to match its high-end audio features. The next-generation full HD (1920×1080) high-resolution display features Samsung SuperBright technology, for a brilliant 300-nit screen (up to 40% brighter than traditional PCs) and a stunning range of color (up to 16 million). An anti-reflective matte screen results in images that look rich, vivid and crisp, with noticeable improvements in color depth, regardless of whether the user is indoors or out.
This visual experience is enhanced by the inclusion of NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 2GB graphics, the latest NVIDIA graphics with hybrid technology, resulting in virtually faultless playback of movies, games and multimedia.
The Intel Core i7 processor also augments the multimedia experience with a suite of built-in visual enhancements, improving the viewing experience for photos, videos and games. What's more, you can sync your Series 7 Chronos to your TV using the Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) and an adapter, allowing you to effortlessly view all your digital content on a larger screen.
Sleek, Elegant Design
Building on the design heritage of its smaller models, the 17-inch Series 7 Chronos has been crafted using modern brushed aluminum for a sleek, elegant appearance. The 17-inch Series 7 Chronos is just one inch thick and weighs just over 6.5 pounds.
Through its MaxScreen technology, Samsung was also able to greatly reduce the bezel of the 17-inch Series 7 Chronos, allowing a 17.3-inch display to fit in a smaller chassis. The result is a stunning viewing experience, which allows users to benefit from a large screen as well as an impressive design that is sure to be noticed everywhere.
Signature Samsung Technology
Samsung's Support Center ensures all content stays safe and can help troubleshoot any particular problem. Accessible with a keyboard shortcut, the Support Center helps users manage their system settings or arrange for a tech-support web chat. Samsung's Back-up & Recovery Solution also allows users to create and restore back-ups of system data on the device, or on a network or removable storage device.
