Samsung’s Windows 8 PC Lineup
Samsung Electronics announced details about its upcoming Windows 8 mobile PC and All-In-One product lines. Building on its leadership position in the PC and tablet market, Samsung is bringing premium computing power, elegant design and an intuitive user experience to its PCs along with seamless convergence across devices, thanks to Samsung AllShare Play. In addition, Samsung offers a range of unique applications across devices including Samsung Quick Starter, and exclusive S Pen apps such as S Note and S Memo.
The Samsung Windows 8 product lineup includes a diverse range of computing solutions, from highly portable laptops and Samsung ATIV Smart PCs to sleek All-In-One desktop PCs. Each product incorporates Samsung’s stylish design, intuitive hardware and premium computing components.
Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T is engineered for highly mobile users, this device provides enhanced content consumption and creation by allowing users to effortlessly switch between a traditional clamshell notebook PC and tablet PC.
Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T is a powerful PC designed for on-the-go professionals with a blazing-fast Intel Core i5 processor. Like the 500T, the Pro 700T can easily switch between a clamshell and tablet form factor, resulting in maximum usage and compatibility from anywhere.
Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch is Samsung’s first Ultrabook with a 10-finger multi touchscreen. With a third-generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor, premium multimedia capabilities, a high-definition screen, and an ergonomic, stylish design, the laptop delivers the mobility and performance demanded by both consumers and business users.
Samsung Series 5 All-In-One, a powerful All-In-One PC, was designed to serve as an ideal kitchen PC, with a keyboard and mouse that fit neatly in between the legs of the base to open up counter space and a slightly smaller screen size that users look for in that room.
Samsung Series 7 All-In-One is a premium home PC with powerful performance packed in sleek minimalistic design. In addition to 10-finger touch capabilities, the display also recognizes hand gestures for maximum usability.
Powerful Connectivity and Applications
Samsung’s newest PCs feature powerful, exclusive applications that maximize productivity and ease-of-use. All of the products have the ability to seamlessly interact with other Samsung devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and TVs, through Samsung AllShare Play, fully integrating the PC into users’ home or office ecosystems. Users can easily share content between their All-In-One and other Samsung devices on the same network. They can showcase photos from their phone to the larger All-In-One display, or share a document drafted on their All-In-One with their tablet and continue editing while on the road.
Samsung’s new PCs also feature SW Update for the latest software and drivers. Included within SW Update is Samsung’s Quick Starter feature, which adds a toolbar and start button to the Windows 8 interface. This provides users with a choice of interface and offers a familiar navigation scheme. In addition, SW Update includes AllShare Play for seamless convergence across devices.
The ATIV Smart PC Pro devices are preloaded with S Pen optimized apps such as S Note, S Memo and S Cloud, allowing users to fully capitalize on the S Pen that ships embedded in a slot on the device. With 1,024 levels of sensitivity, the S Pen is designed for natural and intuitive content creation, and offers features including handwriting to text conversion and varying thickness when drawing or writing, depending on the pressure applied.
Looking up recipes on your computer has also never been easier than it is on the new Samsung Series 5 and Series 7 All-In-One PCs, thanks to Jamie Oliver’s application Jamie Oliver’s Recipes, which is exclusively pre-installed on Samsung’s Windows 8 PCs. Users can enjoy delicious recipes from around the world, developed specifically for the application and displayed in an easy to follow step-by-step format, each with beautiful high-definition photographs.
