“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.”

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.
