Samsung's updated touch-screen technology is designed to provide a more accurate and responsive experience.
Samsung Electronics America
announced the Series 7 all-in-one PC, featuring a touch-screen monitor, which
employs Samsung's television technology and a minimalist design profile aimed
at style-conscious consumers. The 23-inch screen measures 16mm thin, and the
monitor's base encloses the PC's key components and features. The company said
the PC is scheduled to debut Oct. 10 with a suggested price ranging from $999
to $1,199, depending on the model.
The Series 7 all-in-one
features the company's TV technology, which is designed to enhance the video
capabilities on the product's full high-definition, LED-backlit display. Adding
to the home theater experience is the inclusion of Harman speakers and
Harman-optimized audio features, as well as surround sound, powered by the
SoundAlive sound enhancer. An integrated HD Webcam and DVD player complete the
multimedia package. The PC also offers a wireless keyboard and streamlined mouse,
highlighting the company's emphasis on design aesthetic.
"Samsung's new all-in-one PC
provides all of the benefits of a full-sized desktop computer without the
cumbersome tower and wires often associated with that form factor," said Scott
Ledterman, director of mobile PC marketing at Samsung Enterprise Business
Division. "It's an ideal choice for consumers looking to upgrade their PCs, as
it will provide them with the latest technology while freeing up valuable desk
space in their home or office setup."
The PC was built to be easy
on the eyes and the mind as well. Samsung's updated touch-screen technology is
designed to provide a more accurate and responsive experience, enabling users
to navigate through the user interface, the Web and more. Additionally, the
Samsung Touch Launcher software provides touch-based access to applications
from the desktop. The PC also features an Intel Core i3 or Intel Core i5
processor and Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
In addition, Samsung's Easy
Settings make it possible to connect the Series 7 all-in-one to new wireless
networks, projectors and more by giving users quick access to commonly used PC
settings. Samsung Easy Migration allows users to transfer existing files to the
new computer by connecting it to their old PC, launching and starting Easy
Migration, and letting the PC do the rest.
