Samsung Series 7: 2013 Korean Lightweights Champions

Whether you need a smartphone or a television, Samsung is now probably one of the first brands you’d think of. But most people forget that this is also a company that has been producing affordable computes since 1983. Having strongly invested in the laptop market over the last few years, the Korean producer is now building upon its expertise and moving into the future of notebooks. Vegas’ CES is the place chosen to unveil Samsung’s vision of 2013.

The Year of Slim

Thin, powerful and stylish: these are the keywords for the new range of Samsung ultrabooks, which are now among the company’s most innovative products. Picking up from 2012’s Series 7 laptops, 2013’s new range revolves around 15.6-inch Chronos and 13.3-inch Ultra. Both relying on Full HD screens, 11 hours runtime and a full aluminium body, these laptops are among the lightest and thinnest on the market for such dimensions.

Chronos weighs just 5.8 pounds but still includes a performing 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 processor and AMD Radeon HD 8870M GPU, with a hard drive up to 1TB. Boasting a Windows 8 system, this notebook also implements AMD’s RAMaccelerator technology, which brings 150 per cent faster browsing and smoother overall functioning of the computer. On top of all this, JBL speakers and 720p webcam are to push the entertainment factor even further.

Appealing more to all those who are looking for an even more compact machine, the Ultra is a proper ultrabook: its smaller display and just 3.2 pounds of weight make for an incredibly portable machine. Ultra’s hard disk can go up to 256GB, with RAM up to 16 GB.

Joining the ranks of many more Samsung computers presented at CES, both of these Samsung Series 7 are overall highly performing yet incredibly light laptops: one would expect nothing less from the ever-so-ambitious Korean giant.
