Samsung Unveils Enhanced Series 7 Chronos and New Ultrabooks at CES 2013

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced two additions to its high performance Series 7 PC lineup: the enhanced Series 7 Chronos, which delivers professional performance in a thin and light form factor, and the Series 7 Ultra, which takes Ultrabooks to the next level with enriched computing power, graphics and touch capability. The new Samsung Series 7 intuitive devices incorporate PCs into consumers’ lives by enabling mobility and helping to keep them connected.

“2012 was a definitive year for Samsung’s PC business – we expanded our lineup, taking advantage of the new form factors and consumer demand. This led to significant growth in the industry,” said David Song, Senior Vice President of IT & Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics. “In 2013, we will continue to focus on innovation delivering products that fit into customer lifestyles while maintaining Samsung’s high-end design and performance standards. The new Series 7 Chronos and Ultra products are just two examples of what you can expect to see from us throughout the year.”

New Series 7 Chronos – Professional, Powerful Performer

Delivering professional performance in a thinner and lighter form factor, the new Series 7 Chronos provides enhanced processing power for professional users and a new software solution RAMaccelerator**** that provides up to a 150 percent increase in speed for browsing and running apps by taking advantage of the existing memory. Ten-finger multi-touch capabilities enhance the overall experience, allowing the user to interact directly with the screen, as well as the touchpad and keyboard. With a full aluminum body, the new Series 7 Chronos follows the design DNA of its predecessor while packing a powerful Intel® quad-core processor with up to 16GB* of memory, up to 1TB*** of storage and dedicated 2GB external graphics into a slim chassis that measures just 20.9mm (0.82 inches).

The Series 7 Chronos enables creation of heavy content for professional use with increased efficiency and productivity, anywhere and anytime. Catering to the needs of professionals, the new Series 7 Chronos features a high resolution, Full HD display (1920x1080), with 300nit brightness, as well as rich sound with JBL® optimized speakers, enhanced graphics to run hardcore tasks, and an extended battery life of 11 hours**. The laptop wakes up in as little as two seconds and boots in under twelve seconds, making it ready at a moment’s notice to access virtually anything the user needs for serious work.

Series 7 Ultra – A New Ultrabook Experience

As the first Ultra in the Series 7 family, the Series 7 Ultra embodies superior mobility and performance in an ultra-slim and light, full aluminum body. Designed as the ultimate Ultrabook for multimedia, the Series 7 Ultra offers crisp visuals as well as powerful sound features. Enjoy videos and images on a Full HD display (1920x1080) featuring 350nit brightness, while JBL optimized speakers and AMD® graphics complete the experience. The laptop’s display is brighter and wider than previous models and features a 178-degree viewing angle, making it great for sharing multimedia with friends and family, or work content with colleagues.

Up to eight hours of battery life** keeps users connected all day, while the latest Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processors and up to 256GB SSD*** of storage provide the computing power required by even the most demanding users. The laptop’s ten-finger intuitive touch capabilities and six second boot-up time maximize on-the-go productivity. The device will also be available with 4G LTE connectivity, further enhancing accessibility from anywhere (touch model based). Connecting to other devices is almost never an issue with three USB ports, as well as a LAN port and a slim security slot to help ensure the device is securely tethered when necessary.
