SAMSUNG UNVEILS ITS NEW ALL IN ONE PC AT IFA 2012
Powerful performance packed in a stylish slim design – AIO PC Series 7 exclusively pre-loaded with master chef Jamie Oliver recipes
London, UK – 29th August, 2012 – today Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, unveiled its brand new All-In-One PC Series 7. Building on the premium aspects of the Samsung Series 9 Notebook, the new All-In-One (AIO) PCs inherit Samsung’s advanced engineering craftsmanship with high finish and stylish design.
As well as high performance, the new Samsung AIO PC Series 7 has been crafted to deliver an entirely new AIO PC experience. Driven by a 3rd generation Intel® Core™i7 processor, 8GB RAM, dedicated AMD Radeon HD graphics and a WQHD display with resolution of 2560×1440, the new AIO PC Series 7 embodies innovative sense recognition features such as 10-finger multi-touch control and hand gesture commands.
Graham Long, Vice President Corporate Sales & IT Solutions, Samsung UK and Ireland, said: “The All-In-One PC market carries enormous growth potential by taking convergence technologies to the next level. The new All-In-One PC Series 7 lives up to the true promise of all-in-one, incorporating many exciting hardware and software features to offer a maximised home entertainment experience.”
Samsung All-In-One PC Set for Unlimited User Experience
With the upcoming new Windows 8 platform, demand for All-In-One PCs is expected to increase further as AIOs will have stronger performance and features, and they are expected to replace the existing desktop PC in the market. To provide users with these benefits, Samsung has perfected not only the hardware but also the software aspects to offer never seen before experiences.
Intuitive Touch Function and Wider Look
For an unlimited premium user experience, Samsung AIO PC Series 7, has been equipped with a 10-finger multi-touch screen. This technological leap, in interactivity, surpasses traditional two-finger multi-touch by providing full touch control using all ten fingers on an AIO PC. Its enhanced sensitivity enables users to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications or perform complicated content editing. Users can pinch to zoom on content or rotate images, and scroll through pages with complete ease using 10 multi-touch functions. To enjoy its full capabilities as a home entertainment system, the new AIO PC has a viewing angle of 178 degrees* vertically and horizontally, which makes activities such as watching a movie that much better.
Gesture – It couldn’t be easier
To further expand user benefits, the new AIO PCs also have five hand gesture recognition features. These let users control the device with just a flick of the wrist from up to a metre away, perfect for enjoying home entertainment or cooking, for example. Swipe right or left to turn the pages of an e-book or cooking recipe, or rotate your palm clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the volume while watching a movie. You can simply close your hand to click on an option in a program and stop watching a movie by just waving your hands. These features definitely offer more convenience to consumers.
The True Performer
Power and performance are ensured with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5 processor and 8GB RAM. A powerful AMD Radeon HD 7850M graphics processor, Blu-ray drive, and up to 1TB HDD and 64GB SSD ensure content in a wide array of formats is readily available in no time, and enable seamless playback, editing, creating and saving of content.
To further expand the true all-in-one experience, the new devices are equipped with 14-Watt speakers while Tweeter and Dolby sound deliver rich sound quality in any environment.
Also the latest WQHD display featuring 2560×1440 resolution delivers crisp, clear and all-encompassing viewing experience. Users are now able to fit more windows into a single screen without compromising on scale. Browsing online while simultaneously watching a movie is no longer an issue.
Samsung PC Exclusive: Jamie Oliver Recipes
Samsung has secured an exclusive app from Jamie Oliver that will be pre-installed on all its new Windows 8 machines. The app features a range of recipes from the chef that can be controlled using hand gestures, meaning users can swipe through the instructions without getting dirty hands on their PC.
Accentuate your home with a modern and minimalistic look. Samsung’s AIO PC Series 7 are clutter-free and have space-saving design, featuring a uniquely stylish metallic arch stand, an ultra-slim display with a durable metal edge, and an edge-to-edge glossy black screen. These elegant new AIO PCs add a premium look to any living space or office.
Check out the product pictures! This product is very thin and really looks high-end.
They did not announce a screen size, and I’d like to see pricing, but this looks like a worthy entry in the all-in-one market.
