US store J&R seem to be quite excited about Ivy Bridge because it jumped the gun and simply listed on its website a yet-unannounced Samsung notebook based around Intel's 22 nm platform. Dubbed NP700Z7C-S01US Nike, the laptop in question runs Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) and features a 17.3-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED-backlit display, a 2.3 GHz Core i7-3615QM processor, Intel HD 4000 graphics, 8 GB of RAM, a DVD writer and a 1 TB hard drive backed by 8 GB of NAND Express Cache.

The NP700Z7C-S01US also packs a multi-in-one card reader, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and an 8-cell battery. This whole package is priced at $1,499.99 and is labeled as 'coming soon'.

Boo for intel graphics... With the rest of the specs, you'd think they'd put in a chip that allows you to play SOME games... Other than solitaire that is...

The Ivy Bridge architecture improves mostly this other than moving to a smaller process, and the sandy bridge chips weren't really a slouch in this department. Their drivers may not be on par with AMD or nVidia, but the GPU itself is - it seems like it will be competitive with lower end APU designs in terms of raw power, though probably still slower than midrange or higher end APU GPUs.


Anyways, it looks like a decent machine at an unappetizing price. Sure the chip is probably a higher end one and while it may be thinner or lighter for a 17" laptop... it's not exactly thin or light. It's interesting that the pic specs differ from the news article somewhat, claiming a very low resolution (1366x768) and HD 3000 graphics (which is sandy bridge generation). My guess is the news post is the accurate one, but maybe it's an indication of the page being made prematurely (it was obviously published prematurely), or that the specs listed can't exactly be trusted.

This is a joke right? How else would you rearrange a keyboard, screen, and trackpad on a hunk of metal? Would they be better off putting the trackpad where the screen is and the keyboard sideways with the screen underneath the machine?

Samsung can start by not using backlit black chiclet keys that look exactly like the ones on a MBP, not using a trackpad that looks exactly like the one on a MBP and not having the exact same notch for lid opening.

I mean, look at it, it's pretty obvious that Samsung is trying to attract potential MBP buyers by, well, making something that looks like a MBP.



Oh and, this is obviously an Ivy Bridge update of Series 7.

check pron's post. it is pretty obvious who they are trying to cater to. not saying it is a bad thing, just pointing out the obvious lack of creativity.

Samsung can start by not using backlit black chiclet keys that look exactly like the ones on a MBP, not using a trackpad that looks exactly like the one on a MBP and not having the exact same notch for lid opening.
