Samsung Series 7 Chronos refreshed with beefed up specs, thinner and lighter design

Samsung Series 7 Chronos

The new Samsung Series 7 Chronos has made its debut ahead of the CES 2013, alongside the first Ultrabook which was recently announced for the range. The latest refresh carried out to the former brings in a slimmer design and enhanced hardware components, all aimed towards delivering professional performance in a compact package.

Designed for professionals on the move, portability is a highly considered factor here. The newest iteration takes on the same design language flaunted by its predecessor. The exterior is crafted from aluminum for a classy appearance and the form factor has been slimmed down to 20.9mm in depth, weighing not more than 2.35kg. With the Windows 8 platform running the show here, the company has thrown in a 15.6-inch full HD display with a 10-point multi-touch input and 300nit brightness.

On the lower half of the Series 7 Chronos rests a backlit keyboard and a clickpad, while the sides are affixed with various ports such as those for RJ 45, USB 3.0, HDMI and VGA. There are a set of JBL stereo speakers and a 720p HD webcam in tow as well. Moving on to the innards, a quad core Intel Core i7 3635QM processor clocked at 2.4GHz takes charge of all the heavy lifting along with options of 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of RAM. Here, browsing and application performance is said to be greatly increased by approximately 150 percent owing to the RAMaccelerator software.

For hoarding content, users will have up to 1TB of HDD storage at their disposal and the company has also managed to squeeze in a dedicated GPU, the AMD Radeon HD 8870M, which has 2GB of DDR5 memory. When fully charged, the laptop is capable of delivering a whopping 11 hours of battery life.
