Samsung Updates Series 7 With 3D Screen, Yellow Finish

By - Source: PC World | B 21 comments

Samsung's gamer series laptop gets an upgrade in GPU power, display and storage along with a vibrant yellow paintjob.

Since lugging around an 8 pound 17.3-inch gaming "laptop" doesn't attract enough attention, Samsung decided to upgrade its Series 7 Gamer with a fresh coat of paint. Along with its new blindingly bright yellow finish, the company has also upgraded what was underneath the hood. The new model now features an AMD Radeon HD 7870M, replacing the Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M.

Although some would believe Nvidia's higher-end 675M GPU should out power AMD's mid-range 7870M, numerous benchmarks have shown the 7870M is a force to be reckoned with. In addition to the upgrade in GPU power, Samsung also decided to throw in a 3D LED display, a 128GB SSD, and 1TB HDD.

According to the official post on the company's Samsung Tomorrow blog, the revamped Series 7 Gamer will be available for Korean gamers starting tomorrow, August 14th at a price of 2.99 million won (approx. $2,647 USD). No word on when or if an international release will be available just yet, but something this vibrant will be hard to miss if it does make its way around the world.

    Samsung seems to have its head screwed on lately, apart from the silly prices.. I hope this is prices competitively

    I wonder if the chick is the same as on those stupid radeon adds where she touches the connectors and then plugs dvi into motherboard. Looks the same.

    You need those polarized glasses to keep from going blind. That yellow is bright.

    It's a lot like cars. The only cars you see with bright yellow paint jobs are high performance sports cars. The cars with drivers who are saying, "look at me!"

    I am guessing they're appealing to the same people.

    It looks horrendous, and that's a ridiculous price. I'd rather just Macbook Pro at this price.

    Yeah. Me too. Except when I asked in the Mac store if you could change the illuminated Apple logo for something cool so you wouldn't look like an Apple-loser. They snuffed at me and just told me that it would void the warranty.

    The guy in the picture is smiling a sad smile, because he knows he can't turn around for the photo shoot, but he really wants to look down her cleavage.

    Seems cool. Change the color to something less bright and drop the gimmicky 3D.

    Yep, same price with less HDD, no 3D and almost zero gaming
    ...
    I can see why the Macbook Pro would be a more obvious choice for the hardcore gamer

    O_o

    Looking at pic, it seems like that girl is the mother of that boy, and she is proud of seeing her son game. Regardless, they should have done a better job.

    She's a prop to make guys look at the ad. Without glasses on, she's going to be viewing a very messed up image, yet she looks to be excited about the action. Besides, she would have had to be a kid herself to have had him.
