Now that the rumors that Samsung would purchase HP's computer business have subsided, the company is getting to work expanding its footprint in the U.S. For the first time, the electronics giant has introduced a desktop PC for the American market.
The Samsung Series 7 All-In-One PC joins the all-in-one trend, offering a 23-inch touchscreen display that's only 16 millimeters thick, with the system components buried in the unit's base. The result is a different, slightly sleeker look than the typical all-in-one delivers. You can lay the screen flat in order to make the best use of the touchscreen interface.
Samsung will debut two configurations of the All-In-One. The $999 DP700A3B-A01US includes the Intel Core i3-2120T processor running at 2.6GHz, 6GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, wireless keyboard and mouse, built-in Wi-Fi, DVD burner, and integrated graphics. The beefier $1,199 DP700A3B-A02US packs a 2.7GHz Core i5-2390T CPU and 8GB of RAM instead.
The Series 7 All-In-One PC will be available on October 10. While it delivers a sexier design and slightly bigger screen, you can get an all-in-one from HP with similar specs for less if you don't want the touchscreen (see the Omni 220xt, for example).
