Samsung has announced its new Series 7 and Series 5 All-In-One (AIO) PCs at the IFA 2012. Each of the new models features a high-resolution, ten-point touch, slim bezel display on an elegant metal base, as well as a third generation Intel Core processor. The products are designed to run on Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8.
“Our new Series 7 and Series 5 All-In-One PCs are designed to meet a range of consumer needs across the home, all within highly stylized form factors that users will be proud to put on display,” said Todd Bouman, vice president of product marketing at Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “The expansion of our AIO line speaks to the success we’ve had in the PC market over the past year. Both of these new models take Samsung’s convergence technologies to the next level, completing the home computing experience by connecting the PC to other devices in the home environment.”
New range of touchscreen All-in-Ones unveiled
The new Samsung Series 7 and Series 5 AIOs have been designed to deliver a new PC experience through sense recognition features such as 10-finger multi-touch control and hand gesture commands. The display's sensitivity enables users to utilise the 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 ease using 10 multi-touch functions.
The new AIO PCs have five simple hand gesture recognition features that conveniently let users stay in control with just a flick of the wrist from up to three feet away; this can be ideal for viewing home entertainment or cooking. Users can swipe right or left to turn the pages of an e-book or recipe, all without touching the screen. Users can also rotate their palm clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the volume while watching a movie, close their hand to click on an option in a program, or simply wave their hands to stop watching a movie.
Powered by a third generation Intel Core processor, up to 8GB RAM, dedicated HD graphics and a 1920 x 1080 display resolution, these Samsung All-In-Ones provide users with the computing power they need to multitask. Up to 1TB HDD and 64GB SSD ensure content in an array of formats are readily available in no time and enables users to seamlessly playback, edit, create or save content. To enjoy its full capabilities as a home entertainment system, the new AIO PCs have a viewing angle of 178 degrees vertically and horizontally, enabling families and friends to watch TV shows or movies easily.
Samsung’s Series 7 and Series 5 AIO PCs feature a clutter-free and space-saving design, complete with a metallic stand, an ultra-slim display with a durable metal edge and an edge-to-edge glossy black screen. These new models add a premium look to any living space or office while maximising available space on a desk or countertop. The Series 5 All-In-One was designed to serve as an ideal kitchen PC with a keyboard and mouse that fit neatly in between the legs of the base to open up counter space and a slightly smaller screen size that can be beneficial for users in the kitchen.
The Samsung Series 7 and Series 7 All-In-One PCs will be available beginning October 26, 2012. The MSRP for the Series 7 is $1,099 (approximately Rs. 60,999) to $1,699 (approximately Rs. 94,301) and the Series 5 is priced at $749 (approximately Rs. 41,572).
