CES Summary: New Samsung Laptops at the International Consumer Electronics Show

    And again, good afternoon, dear Gabrazhiteli!

    We continue to take stock of the international consumer electronics fair CES 2013, which was held January 8-11 in Las Vegas, USA. Today, the focus is on the two latest models of Samsung's high-performance notebook line: Series 7 Chronos and Series 7 Ultra.

    Series 7 Chronos

    Notebook The new Series 7 Chronos is a powerful workhorse suitable for everyday business and entertainment as well as professional activities requiring good performance. Contrary to the interpretation of the concept of "workhorse", this laptop is enclosed in a nice-looking slim aluminum case - only 20.9 mm.

    Inside, the laptop is equipped with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 3635QM processor, AMD Radeon HD 8870M graphics adapter with 2 GB of GDDR5 video memory (PowerExpress), RAM (4 or 8 GB, but can be expanded up to 16 GB) and a hard disk capacity of up to 1 Tb Screen size is 15.6 inches, resolution is 1920x1080 (Full HD), and its brightness is 300 nits. Touch screen, supports 10-finger multi-touch.

    There are 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, HP / MIC, VGA and an RJ 45 network connector (three-in-one). The laptop battery promises up to 11.5 hours of battery life. The laptop download speed after turning on is twelve seconds. Chronos takes two seconds to wake up. Windows 8 is preinstalled on the laptop.

    Of the small but pleasant additions, one can note the keyboard backlight, a spacious clickpad and an HD camera built-in above the screen.

    Series 7 Ultra Notebook

    Like its predecessors, the new Series 7 Ultra Notebook has a sophisticated and minimalistic design enclosed in an aluminum casing. He will definitely seem a very “friendly” potential travel companion, weighing 1.65 kg (and a model without a touch screen is even lighter - only 1.46 kg) and only 18.9 mm thick.

    Despite the small thickness of the device, Samsung engineers were able to put in it a USB 3.0 port, a pair of USB 2.0, HDMI, mini VGA, HP / MIC ports and an RJ 45 network connector (three-in-one). The screen is a 13.3-inch 10-finger multi-touch in Full HD resolution. The laptop will be available in two options: with an Intel Core i7 processor or Core i5 ULV. AMD HD8570M (with 1 GB of GDDR3 video memory) is responsible for graphic matters, and up to 16 GB of RAM for speed.

    Also equipped with a laptop solid state drive (up to 256 GB). The battery promises to live up to 8 hours offline, and the laptop starts in just 6 seconds. The pre-installed OS is still the same Windows 8.

    This model will be delivered in a version with a 4G module to use a high-speed LTE connection. The keyboard backlight, a spacious clickpad and a built-in HD camera above the screen are in this model.
