Samsung has unveiled two new models to their Series 7 PC lineup, days away from CES 2013. The Series 7 Chronos and Series 7 Ultra give Samsung’s flagship models a boost and join the Series 7 Slate and Series 7 Gamer, while being optimized for the touch-oriented Windows 8.


The Series 7 Chronos is towards professional users who need powerful devices on the go, which runs on a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, a Radeon HD 8870M graphics card with 2GB memory and up to 1TB storage in a slim 20.9mm chassis. Clad in a full aluminum body, the Chronos weighs in at 2.35kg with a 15.6-inch 1080p screen, an optional 10-point touchscreen, and enough battery life for up to 11 hours of use with a twelve second boot time. Prices have yet to be released but just looking at its specs, it’ll probably make a dent in your wallet.


The Series 7 Ultra is Samsung’s answer to the Ultrabook segment with a 13.3-inch 1080p display with optional touchscreen, a Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, an AMD HD 8570M graphics card with 1GB memory and a 256GB SSD. It’s a pretty light device weighing in at around one and a half kilos with a battery life of up to 8 hours and a six second boot time. Further increasing on-the-go productivity, the Ultra can have LTE connectivity. Like the Chronos, prices are unavailable, but like its larger sibling it will most likely cost a bit as well.
