Samsung late Tuesday night unveiled its Series 7 laptop line at the IFA global consumer electronics show. These aren't gaming machines like the Samsung 7 700G that was spotted in the U.K. last week, but essentially Ultrabooks without the official designation. The Series 7 comes encased in a thin and compact aluminum chassis with plenty of power underneath the hood.
Pricing starts at $999, which includes an Intel Core i7 2675QM processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, 750GB hard drive, AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphics, 3W stereo speakers, 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit all stuffed into a 15.6-inch chassis with a 1600x900 display resolution.
"The Series 7 is an ideal laptop for discerning users who need to be highly productive everywhere they go, with advanced features such as Samsung’s exclusive Fast Start technology, a high-speed processor and a large, matte screen that is visible anywhere, even outside," said Scott Ledterman, director of mobile PC marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. "Our goal is to create notebooks that constantly inspire and enrich customers’ lives and with the Series 7, one of the thinnest quad core PCs to date, cutting edge consumers and business users can capitalize on Samsung’s advanced engineering, inside and out."
Several other configurations are available, including a 13-inch model Samsung managed to cram a 14-inch display into by reducing the bezel. This one starts at $1,099 and sports most of the same specs as the above model, but with an Intel Core i5 2430M processor.
All models will be available starting October 2, 2011.
