Samsung Launches Series 7 Gaming Laptop

The company announced what it calls the "ultimate" (off-the-shelf) gaming notebook. The Series 7 comes equipped with a 2.3 GHz Intel i7-3610QM Ivy Bridge processor, 16 GB of memory, 1.5 TB HDD space, as well as Nvidia GeForce GTX675M graphics. As a 17.3-inch (1920x1080) system, it is common sense to assume that it is not an especially light device: Samsung says the Series 7 weighs 13.3 lbs.

Additional standard features include a Blu-ray drive, two USB 3 ports, a 2 MP webcam as well as 4 watt speakers with an integrated sub-woofer.

Samsung says the Series 7 can be run in four different modes - a gaming mode with pulsating, red light that highlights keyboard keys and speakers, a general mode with optimizations for productivity software, a quiet mode with disabled sounds and the fan turned off, as well as a power saver mode in which "only the most critical parts of the processor are running".

The Series 7 is a sale now for $1900.

    Alienware M17x with 7970m is for $1699. This is an epic fail.

    "Gaming" and "Laptop" shouldn’t be written in the same sentence.

    NOPE! Not with the 7970m gpu out for laptops. Far better, and with the option to have 2x4 RAM chips, ends up with the same price tag.

    I still say that's pretty sweet. Although I think it weighs more than my old dell E1705. Gosh, was that thing heavy.
