We told you CES 2013 was going to be the best way to start this year, and we assure you we stand by that statement still. One of the most anticipated companies this year was Samsung, and there’s so much happening there we don’t even know where to start. The CES event saw the Korean electronics manufacturer showcase two new Series 7 Ultrabooks – the Chronos 770Z5E and the Ultra 730U3E.
Series 7 Chronos: This one’s for the mobile professional – with higher processing power and a special RAM accelerator, which promises up to 150 percent higher speed when browsing or running apps on the system. Weighing around 5.2 pounds and just 0.82 inches thick, it may be on the heavier side, but is loaded with features. The high resolution full HD screen can support up to 10-finger multi-touch function. The Chronos is powered by a quad-core Intel processor, up to 16 GB of RAM, and has 1 TB of storage space. It also comes with a dedicated 2 GB external graphics support. It can run for up to 11 hours on battery and can boot in less than 12 seconds and recover from sleep mode in just 2 seconds.
Series 7 Ultra: This one truly lives up to the Ultrabook tag, being just 18.9 mm thick and weighing just 3.6 pounds. A similar full HD screen, AMD graphics processor, and JBL sound are just of its interesting features. The screen has a 178 degree viewing angle and at 350nit brightness, is much brighter than many of the other Ultrabooks available in the market currently. Powered by Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, it comes with 256 GB SSD and has a battery life of 8 hours. The Series 7 Ultra boots in 6 seconds and also supports 4G LTE connectivity for browsing on the go.
