Samsung Series 7 Chronos

Samsung packs full-voltage CPU/GPU into a slim touch-screen laptop

With all the emphasis on superslim ultrabooks and ultrabooklike laptops, we hear less often lately about heftier laptops with full-power CPUs and discrete graphics cards. Samsung is a rare exception, with a new Series 7 Chronos laptop joining the thinner Series 7 Ultrabook version, both announced just before CES 2013.

Samsung calls the Series 7 Chronos a multimedia powerhouse, with quad-core Intel Core i-series CPUs, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage, plus discrete AMD Radeon HD 8870 graphics. The 15.6-inch display has a full 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution, which is what we'd expect from a modern multimedia laptop.
