The Samsung Series 7 Gamer laptop has finally landed on US shores, bearing a rather beefy list of specifications and price tag. What sets this variant apart from its Europe counterpart is the addition of a third generation Intel Core i7 processor.
The notebook employs a 17.3-inch 1920×1080 full HD LCD display which features the SuperBright technology, proffering brightness levels of 400nits. Along with the Dolby Home Theater surround sound system for an enhanced audio experience, the device houses a Geforce GTX675M graphics unit for rendering high frame rates and smooth playback in the latest games. These components are complemented by 16GB of memory.
“The Series 7 Gamer offers all the elements of a high-powered gaming machine with the convenience of the mode-changing dial, which enables you to switch off components in order to save power and have a quieter experience when you’re using it as a more traditional laptop,” states Todd Bouman, vice president of marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “When the product is in gaming mode, it takes the experience to the next level by optimizing the graphics and sound, turning on a pulsating light in the speakers and highlighting the gaming keys in red, which truly allows users to immerse themselves in a game.”
The South Korea-based conglomerate isn’t done just yet. A 1.5TB hard drive which operates at 7200RPM is packed in for meeting hoarding needs. Being powered by the latest Core i7 processor, the notebook comes with the Intel Turbo Boost technology 2.0.1. Moreover, the ExpressCache attribute is said to enable quick application start-up times and faster web browsing speeds through the 8GB of flash memory embedded onto the motherboard. And while Samsung FastStart is capable of sending the device into hybrid sleep mode in around 2 seconds or so, the Quick Boot should start it up in not more than 19 seconds, from a complete shut down.
The Samsung Series 7 Gamer price stands at $1,899.99 and it’s available through resellers as well as distribution channels such as Amazon, Newegg and TigerDirect.
