Prefer to do your gaming with a mouse and keyboard rather than a controller? Then check out Samsung’s new Series 7 Gamer notebook that hits the U.K. today; a machine so beefy it makes Hulk Hogan look like Paris Hilton.
Built with hardcore gamers in mind, the Series 7 Gamer boasts a speedy quad-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM as standard, an AMD Radeon HD 6970M 6GB GDDR5 graphics card, and an 8GB ExpressCache system that makes for a super smooth gaming experience and “incredible gaming speeds.”
Drooling yet? So you should be. Those specs deliver full HD and 3D video playback on the notebook’s whopping 17.3-inch display, accompanied by 3D surround sound with Dolby Home Theater v4. There’s also a Blu-ray drive, a 2-megapixel webcam, and two pairs of 3D active shutter glasses. Whether you’re slaying enemies in The Witcher or simply making a birthday card for your gran, this thing’s got your back.
The Series 7 Gamer comes running Windows 7 Home Premium and has more ports than you’ll ever be able to fill, including a DisplayPort, a VGA, a HDMI, two USB 3.0 slots, two USB 2.0 slots, and headphone and microphone jacks.
Thankfully, Samsung knows we don’t game 24/7, so it has also provided us with a number of preset modes designed for other tasks. In addition to the Gaming mode, there’s a Balanced mode for everyday use, a Library mode for working silently, and a Green mode that aims to maximize your battery life. A built-in Mode Dial allows you to quickly switch between each preset when necessary.
Damian Cusick, General Manager of Computing for Samsung UK and Ireland, says the Series 7 Gamer sets a benchmark for gaming notebooks:
“With the Series 7 Gamer we have delivered a notebook that can compete with a desktop PC, and that sets the benchmark for gaming notebooks.
“The Series 7 is packed with features that specifically meet the demands of serious gamers, and with its four optimisation modes, can deliver optimum performance for a wide variety of different activities, at the turn of a dial.”
The new notebook is available from today in the U.K., but it’s not cheap: prices start at £1,499 (approx. $2,480). Unfortunately there’s no word on U.S. availability just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
