    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced its new Notebook Series 7 CHRONOS 17-inch model.

    Encased in a premium compact and light aluminum chassis, the high-performance multimedia-ready Series 7 CHRONOS 17 with Intel's 3rd generation Core i7 and ExpressCache represents the perfect desktop replacement. The innovative ExpressCache technology developed by Diskeeper provides 8 GB of flash memory on the motherboard, enabling a faster start-up as well as increasing the PC's overall performance; web browsing is two times faster (based on Microsoft Internet Explorer) while the device takes just two seconds to wake up.


    In addition to exceptional speed, the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 also delivers maximum performance with its high-quality Full HD display. With 300 nit brightness and 1080p resolution, the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 incorporates Samsung's MaxScreen technology, providing up to an extra inch of immersive viewing without sacrificing mobility or portability.

    "Following the success of our award-winning Series 7 CHRONOS, we are expanding our line-up with the new 17-inch model. Powerful features with more immersive viewing packed in Samsung's innovative design and engineering excellence will offer users the ultimate personal computing experience," said David Song, Senior Vice President of the IT Solutions Business at Samsung Electronics.

    Full HD Viewing Experience with Rich and Crisp Sound

    The Series 7 CHRONOS 17 greatly benefits from Samsung's Superior LCD technology, with a display that delivers a next-generation Full HD (1920 x 1080) high-resolution viewing experience. With SuperBright 300 nit brightness and an anti-reflective screen, films and pictures look rich, vivid and crisp, with noticeable improvements in color depth.

    Samsung's elite engineers have succeeded in greatly reducing the bezel size of the Series 7 CHRONOS 17, allowing a 17.3" display to fit into a profile usually used for 16" models. The result is a stunning viewing experience, with users benefiting from a large screen in the form factor of a smaller model.

    Graphics performance is guaranteed with the inclusion of NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 2 GB graphics; films, games and multimedia can be enjoyed with faultless playback. To match the visual experience, the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 incorporates JBL optimized speakers and a subwoofer for optimal audio quality. The enhanced low pitch with Bass Boost technology delivers the beat users have been craving for.

    Enhanced Speed and Performance

    Powered by Intel's 3rd generation i7 Quad Core processor, the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 delivers unrivalled speed right from the start. Adding to ExpressCache benefits, Samsung's FastStart gets the PC ready to use in just two seconds, while Quick Boot has the notebook ready to go - from cold - in just 19 seconds.

    The performance of the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 is further enhanced by the notebook's extended battery life. In addition to uninterrupted performance of up to 8 hours on a single charge (based on MobileMark test scores), Samsung's Battery Life Plus technology keeps 80% of the cell's original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than on other notebooks.

    Compact and Light for Exceptional Use Outdoors

    Building on the design heritage of its smaller models, the Series 7 CHRONOS 17 has also been crafted using modern brushed aluminum for an exclusive appearance. Thin and compact, the 17" Series 7 weighs just 2.98 kg (6.56 lbs) and is just 25.4 mm thin.

    Complementing its sleek appearance, the PC's design also packs highly intelligent features, including an automatic sensor that ensures the backlit keyboard and LCD are either dimmed or brightened according to lighting levels.
