After the Series 7 Gamer, the Korean manufacturer is out with another Ivy Bridge based laptop dubbed Samsung Series 5 550P. Designed for an immersive multimedia experience, the notebook will be made available in screen configurations of 15 and 17 inches.
This latest Series 5 laptop employs the third generation Intel Core i7 processor under the hood to ensure smooth multitasking. The dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 650M GPU for enhanced graphics has been included to facilitate streaming high-quality multimedia content on the move. This device is said to consume up to 20 percent less power, while improving the efficiency by up to 25 percent compared to the second generation Intel processors. Its 15-inch variant weighs approximately 2.5kg and the 17-inch model tips the scale at a little more than 3kg.
“With its fully integrated multimedia features and lightweight slim design the Samsung Series 5 550P notebook offers an unsurpassed ‘look, listen and feel’ experience that no other notebook will match,” commented Damian Cusick, General Manager, Computing, Samsung UK and Ireland.
Furthermore, the notebook can be incorporated with storage drives for as much as 2TB memory. Besides support for multi-format content, it comes with a Blu-ray drive and the company’s LCD technology for enhanced viewing. The improved audio rendering of the device in question can be attributed to the JBL optimized speakers as well as the Max Bass Boost subwoofer. Its full-size keyboard has been embedded with isolated numeric and direction keys in addition to a touchpad with distinguished left and right clicks.
The exact Samsung Series 5 550P release date and price are not known. It is expected to hit markets this month through retailers like PC World and Currys.
