Samsung has announced the enhanced Series 7 Chronos and the Series 7 Ultra ultrabooks during CES.

The new Series 7 Chronos ultrabooks houses an Intel quad-core processor with up to 16 GB of memory, up to 1 TB of storage, as well as dedicated 2 GB external graphics, which are all fitted into a slim chassis that measures 20.9mm (0.82 inches).

They sport a full HD display (1920x1080) with 300nit brightness, in addition to extended battery life of 11.5 hours. Samsung said the laptop can fully turn on within two seconds, while it boots in under 12 seconds.

Elsewhere, the first Ultra in the Series 7 slate boasts an ultra-slim and light aluminum body. As well as a full HD display (1920x1080) that comes with 350nit brightness, JBL optimized speakers and AMD graphics, the laptop also delivers a 178-degree viewing angle.

Up to eight hours of battery life is promised, with the latest Intel Core i5 or i7 processors powering the laptop. It'll have up to 256 GB SSD of storage space, touch capabilities and a six second boot-up time. Moreover, the Series 7 Ultra boasts 4G LTE connectivity, three USB 3.0 ports and an LAN port. A security slot, meanwhile, helps the device become securely tethered when required.

Samsung has yet to unveil a launch time frame or pricing details on the ultrabooks.

    Not just discrete, but a full fledge external graphics card that you have to plug in to use, like those on the Vaio Z series. I think

    Any reason why AMD graphics card instead of nVidia? So we are missing CUDA here?

    Looks a lot like the retina MBP and will probably have a price to match (2k).

    The Series 7 Chronos looks like my ideal laptop for Windows 8, with the 15" 1080p touchscreen, great graphics for the size, the nice build quality and (supposed) battery life. Too bad it'll probably be $1600+ for the base non-touch model.

    No, just discrete. This is Zak, remember?
