Samsung does have a knack for creating interesting designs, and the Series 7 Ultra is no exception. This ultrabook, announced before the big CES (Consumer Electronics Show) on the 8th of January, will come in two versions: one touchscreen, one without. However in the variants there different processors (Intel Core i5 or i7) and different storage capacities (128GB or 256GB), but always with Windows 8 included. Whichever configuration you choose, though, you’ll get a 350-nit, 1080p display, up to 16GB of RAM (whoa!), a backlit keyboard, JBL speakers and a 1GB AMD HD8570M GPU. Other specs include three USB ports (two 2.0, one 3.0), HDMI, Ethernet, mini-VGA, a memory card reader and a battery rated for up to eight hours (probably that’s the non-touch model).
Samsung has another laptop in the work called the Chronos. Apparently this is supposed to be their showstopper and they’re not really talking about it until the show, instead teasing it has very high-end specs and a slim, modern design. Looks like we’ll be waiting on it.
