If we were to title this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show), the most appropriate title would have been ‘The Ultrabook Show’. Among those good-looking, Ultra-thin laptops there was one massive laptop from Samsung which dominated its territory pretty well; it was the Samsung Series 7 Chronos Laptop.
Samsung Series 7 Chronos laptop has a 17-inch 300 nits display that comes Full HD 1080p resolution. It would be shipped with Intel’s Second Generation of Core i7 processor a.k.a. Sandy Bridge, JBL speakers and 2 GB of dedicated graphics memory from ATI Radeon, the model wasn’t declared at CES.
This laptop, like Samsung Series 5 Chromebook & other Ultra-portable laptops from Samsung has SuperBright display which offered pretty nice viewing angles, but those were not as good as the ones found on ‘Expensive’ Series 9 laptops.
Releasing Date & Pricing of this super-cool desktop replacement is under the veil but it is expected that when Samsung Series 7 Chronos laptop is released, it would cost around $1499.
I am quite sceptical whether this laptop would ever make a trip to Indian markets because there is a very narrow market in India for expensive, heavy laptops. Maybe, that’s the reason why I couldn’t find HP Envy 17 anywhere in my city.
