The Samsung Series 7 NP700Z5B-W01UB is the first laptop from the new Chronos series in the US.
Available for pre-order now at Best Buy, the aluminum notebook with chiclet backlight keyboard packs a 15.6″ 1600×900 anti-glare display into a smaller than standard chassis
size of common 14″ laptops, thanks to a very thin LCD bezel. The Series 7 NP700Z5B-W01UB comes with the new Core i7-2675QM quad-core 2.2GHz processor and AMD’s “Xeymour” 512MB dedicated graphics, according to Best Buy. Xeymour is actually a codename for Radeon HD 6000M video cards and you can also expect that the Series 7 includes AMD-branded switchable GPU solution, as it was announced at the official product launch.
The laptop has 8GB of on-board memory, allowing faster system boot and wake up, as well as 6GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, a slot-load DVD burner, and 4G WiMAX mobile broadband.
The Samsung Series 7 NP700Z5B-W01UB is priced at $880.
Samsung is also expected to release 14″ and 15″ versions of the notebook.
