Samsung today announced the Series 7 ultra-thin laptop line in a brushed-aluminum body and thin bezel screen, all under one-inch thick. By minimizing the bezel and maximizing the screen, the Samsung Series 7 laptops offer an extra inch of screen compared to other laptops of the same dimensions.
The 13-inch or 15.6-inch HD+ (1600×900) high resolution, matte display features 16 million colors and up to 50 percent better brightness (300 nit) provided by Samsung Superbright Technology, as well as an AMD Radeon HD6750M graphics card. These features make the display ideal for any power user's needs, whether inside or out, viewing everything from presentations to photos, videos and games.
Series 7, with the Intel Core i5 or the Intel Core i7 processor, features ExpressCache, a technology which accelerates boot-up and start times. It provides an extra 8GB of flash memory on the motherboard enabling faster start-up as well as increasing the overall performance. Web browsing is up to 50-60 percent quicker (using Microsoft Internet Explorer).
The Series 7 features Samsung's exclusive FastStart technology, which enables the laptop to transition from a hybrid sleep mode to full functionality in as little as two-three seconds, while Quick Boot has the notebook ready to go — from cold — in just 19 seconds, enabling users to quickly jump into work or play while on-the-go.
The Series 7 was designed to offer highly mobile users a powerful computer in a compact, portable form factor, allowing them to capitalize on Samsung's advanced features without being weighed or slowed down.
Samsung's exclusive Easy Settings make it effortless to connect the Series 7 to new wireless networks, projectors and more by giving you easy access to commonly used PC settings, resulting in stress-free business travel and presentations. Samsung Easy Migration allows users to seamlessly transfer existing files to the new laptop by connecting their old PC to the Series 7, launching and starting Easy Migration and letting the PC do the rest.
With up to nine hours of battery life, the Series 7 ensures an all day connection while on-the-go. The inclusion of Samsung Power Plus technology means that the Series 7 battery will retain 80 percent of the original battery capacity for up to 1,500 charges — giving users a battery that works whenever and wherever they need it, even after three years of use.
The Samsung Series 7 will be available starting October 2, 2011 for $999 – $1,299.
