Samsung’s heavy borrowing of Apple’s design is pretty established by now — they’re getting the shit sued out of them for it! But, undeterred, they’re dropping the new Series 7 notebook, with wonderfully thin bezel, Apple looks, and great specs.
The Series 7 is only 0.9 inches thick, but the tiny bezel’s what catches my attention: only 0.25 inches. That’s a gorgeous thing to have in front of your face. Underneath all that brushed aluminium are some pretty damn good guts for the price: a 2.2-GHz Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, a 750 GB (mechanical) harddrive, AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics, and two USB 3.0 ports. For $US1300? Very nice. It may be a MacBook ripoff, but I’d like to see Apple ripoff that price. [BusinessWire via Laptop Mag]
