Following the "very positive reception" to its sleek Series 9 notebooks in the U.S., the company is expanding its efforts with the introduction of their first all-in-one computer for this market. The Samsung Series 7 all-in-one will be available in two configurations, both of them featuring a 23-inch, 250-nit display with 1080p resolution and support for two-finger gestures through Samsung's surface acoustic wave (SAW) touch sensing technology.
Depending on the configuration chosen you'll get either an Intel Core i3-2120T processor running at 2.6 GHz backed up by 6GB of RAM, or an Intel Core i5-2390T running at 2.7 GHz with 8GB of RAM. Otherwise Samsung's all-in-one packs a 1TB 7,200RPM hard drive, Intel's integrated graphics, a slot-in optical drive, SD card slot, 1.3MP webcam, Bluetooth, four USB 2.0 ports plus one USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, a pair of HDMI ports, and a couple of four watt speakers.
The form factor is quite interesting as it allows you to fold the display 90 degrees back to the base, putting it in a horizontal plane for easier touchscreen use. The 23-inch Series 7 all-in-one will hit the market on October 10 priced at $999 for the base Core i3 model, and will go up to $1,199 for the Core i5-equipped one.
