Samsung Series 7 laptop goes slim and sexy

If you didn’t like the construction of the Samsung Series 9 laptop, I’m sure you’ll probably drool over the recently announced Samsung Series 7, with its sleek aluminum body.

Price starts at $999 (probably be Php49,999 when it hits the Philippines), the Series 7 laptop comes with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor.

That chrome finish on the lid and brushed-metal finish on the palm rests, all made with aluminum, gives the Series 7 laptop a really cool and sexy look. Too bad they are only available in 14-inch and 15.6-inch form factor (which is a bit too big for carrying around). For its size though, the 14-inch weighs pretty decent at 4.3lbs.

Other specs include an AMD Radeon HD 6750 and 6490M (with 1GB RAM), 750GB SATA HDD and an 8GB SSD (for a really fast boot-up) and up to 8GB of RAM. The complete specs of the 4 variants are outlined in the table below:

Pricing starts at $999 to $1,299 although we noticed they are more expensive once they reached the Philippines.

    Could have been better if they have the 11″ version like the aspire timeline X.

    Looks like a dream Linux laptop if everything is supported.

    I don’t know if this was the same Samsung laptop featured on Windows. O I have a glimpse on it. And it was the Series 9: http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/windowsexperience/archive/2011/03/22/video-first-impressions-of-the-amazing-new-samsung-900x-premium-ultrathin.aspx

    Anyway, I hope this metal is also the same metal used to build Series 9 laptop..ahaha..

    The metal used here explicitly said aluminum. The price wouldn’t be lower if they used duralumin. Series 9 Laptops sure are sexy but this isn’t a bad alternative. They pitted this with a MBP and both basically has the same thickness.

    What’s interesting though is that the 14inch FITS on a 13″ chassis. That enough should sway buyers who would like to get bigger screen on a smaller footprint. 1600×900 (vs 1366×768) should look better too on that screen. Perks are backlight keyboard and big trackpad.

    Does Samsung make their own laptops or do they use a common manufacturer (i.e. Quanta/Clevo)?
