If aesthetically trimmed down chassis with powerful features under the hood was taking a nap onto your list for ‘a perfect portable computing medium’, then here’s some good news for you. After coming up with several significant upgrades and models, Samsung has just removed the sheath of its latest 17.3-inch mid-range Series 7 Chronos notebook.
Powered by the avant garde quad-core Ivy Bridge processor, the newly unleashed NP700Z7CH amazingly amalgamates neat construction and speedy performance. Ideal for users who seek top-notch functionality with a sense of style hitched along, the slender shaped notebook comes equipped with a thin bezel and boasts of its stunning display which supports a 1920 x 1080p resolution.
The device also catches attention for integrating some JBL-branded speakers, a slow-loading DVDRW, and GeForce GT 650M GPU from Nvidia. At the same time, for its fun side, Samsung has infused some amazing multimedia functions, a high definition webcam for video chats, and two audio jacks.
But, what about the potbelly for stockpiling one’s content? Well for that, you will be getting 2GB of GDDR5 memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, 1 terabyte of hard disk drive, and an 8 gigabyte ExpressCache drive. Some other highlights that should grab your eyeballs include D-sub connector, Bluetooth 4.0 (sounds incredible, though), two USB 2.0 ports, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and mini DisplayPort.
However, as far as the price point is concerned, the well-specced notebook falls pretty light on the lap. Interestingly, the new Ivy Bridge powered 17.3-inch notebook from Samsung’s hustling quarters won’t be coming anywhere beyond $1,499. Well, we are nowhere pulling the wool over your eyes. The device will seriously be costing you generously enough. Although the availability is yet to be divulged, the model definitely seems to be catching unawares – and that too, for all the right reasons.
