Samsung Offers Powerful, Fast Performance in a Compact, Sleek Form Factor with New Series 7 Laptops

Stylishly Thin PC Line Provides Highly Portable Cutting Edge Technology to Mobile Users

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--()--Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced the Series 7, a sleek, cutting edge laptop line, at the IFA global consumer electronics tradeshow. Encased in a stunningly thin and compact aluminum chassis, the Series 7 is a highly powerful computer that empowers savvy consumers and design conscience business users to accomplish more in less time.

“The Series 7 is an ideal laptop for discerning users who need to be highly productive everywhere they go, with advanced features such as Samsung’s exclusive Fast Start technology, a high-speed processor and a large, matte screen that is visible anywhere, even outside,” said Scott Ledterman, director of mobile PC marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “Our goal is to create notebooks that constantly inspire and enrich customers’ lives and with the Series 7, one of the thinnest quad core PCs to date, cutting edge consumers and business users can capitalize on Samsung’s advanced engineering, inside and out.”

Impressive Design

With a sleek brushed-aluminum body under one-inch thick, smooth lines and a stunningly thin bezel screen, the Series 7 embodies premium design, making it an ideal computer for users looking to make a statement.

By minimizing the bezel and maximizing the screen, the Samsung Series 7 laptop is highly portable without sacrificing screen size. Incorporating Samsung’s latest Max Screen technology, the Series 7 enables users to experience up to an extra inch of viewing without sacrificing mobility or portability, with the 14-inch display being contained within the form factor traditionally associated with a 13-inch model.

The 13-inch or 15.6-inch HD+ (1600 x 900) high resolution, matte display features 16 million colors and up to 50 percent better brightness (300 nit) provided by Samsung Superbright Technology, as well as an AMD Radeon HD6750M graphics card. These features make the display ideal for any power user’s needs, whether inside or out, viewing everything from presentations to photos, videos and games.

Powerful Performance

Series 7, with the Intel® CoreTM i5 or the Intel® CoreTM i7 processor, features ExpressCache™, a technology which accelerates boot-up and start times. It provides an extra 8GB of flash memory on the motherboard enabling faster start-up as well as increasing the overall performance. Web browsing is up to 50-60 percent quicker (using Microsoft Internet Explorer).

The Series 7 keeps up with your fast-paced life no matter where you are. It features Samsung’s exclusive FastStart technology, which enables the laptop to transition from a hybrid sleep mode to full functionality in as little as two-three seconds, while Quick Boot has the notebook ready to go – from cold – in just 19 seconds, enabling users to quickly jump into work or play while on-the-go.

Maximum Mobility

The Series 7 was designed to offer highly mobile users a powerful computer in a compact, portable form factor, allowing them to capitalize on Samsung’s advanced features without being weighed or slowed down.

Samsung’s exclusive Easy Settings make it effortless to connect the Series 7 to new wireless networks, projectors and more by giving you easy access to commonly used PC settings, resulting in stress-free business travel and presentations. Samsung Easy Migration allows users to seamlessly transfer existing files to the new laptop by connecting their old PC to the Series 7, launching and starting Easy Migration and letting the PC do the rest.

With up to nine hours of battery life**, the Series 7 ensures an all day connection while on-the-go. The inclusion of Samsung Power Plus technology means that the Series 7 battery will retain 80 percent of the original battery capacity for up to 1,500 charges – giving users a battery that works whenever and wherever they need it, even after three years of use.

Signature Samsung Technology

Samsung’s Support Center ensures all content stays safe and can help troubleshoot any particular problem. Accessible with a keyboard shortcut, the Support Center helps users manage their system settings or arrange for a tech-support web chat. Samsung’s Back-up & Recovery Solution also allows users to create and restore back-ups of system data on the device, or on a network or removable storage device.

The Samsung Series 7 will be available starting October 2, 2011. It will retail for $999 – $1,299. All Samsung mobile PC products are available through Samsung resellers and distribution channels. For a full list of retailers, call 1-800-SAMSUNG or visit www.samsung.com.
