January 8, 2013
Even though Microsoft wasn’t at CES at full force this year, tons of new products running Microsoft’s software made it to Vegas in 2013. Check out some of the new hardware running Windows 8.
Samsung Series 7 Chronos
Delivering professional performance in a thinner and lighter form factor, the new Series 7 Chronos provides enhanced processing power. Ten-finger multitouch capabilities enhance the overall experience, allowing people to interact directly with the screen as well as the touchpad and keyboard. With a full aluminum body, the new Series 7 Chronos follows the design DNA of its predecessor while packing a powerful Intel quad-core processor with up to 16 GB of memory, up to 1 TB of storage and dedicated 2GB external graphics into a slim chassis that measures just 20.9mm (0.82 inches). The laptop wakes up in as little as two seconds and boots in under 12 seconds, making it ready at a moment’s notice to access virtually anything the user needs for serious work.
Samsung Series 7 Ultra Touch
As the first Ultra in the Series 7 family, the Series 7 Ultra embodies superior mobility and performance in an ultraslim and light, full aluminum body. Designed as the ultimate Ultrabook for multimedia, the Series 7 Ultra offers crisp visuals and powerful sound features. The laptop’s display is brighter and wider than previous models and features a 178-degree viewing angle, making it great for sharing multimedia with friends and family, or work content with colleagues.
Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC
As a Table PC, Horizon can lie flat on any surface, lets two or more people use the screen at the same time, supports interactive physical gaming accessories, and is designed for touch-screen gameplay among several players. Horizon takes advantage of Windows 8 touch functionality to bring customized games to life in a way players have never before seen. Horizon can also easily transform into a 27-inch high-performance desktop to handle whatever productivity tasks users need to do.
Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S
Users now have another option for choosing one of Lenovo’s groundbreaking flip and fold, 360-degree hinge IdeaPad Yoga convertibles. The new Yoga 11S comes equipped with a new low power lineup from Intel with up to third-generation Intel Core i5 processors and Windows 8 to give users the full power of multitasking. IdeaPad Yoga 11S features an 11.6-inch HD IPS display that supports 10 finger multitouch and comes with unique features previously only available on Yoga 13. Motion Control lets users simply swipe their hand in front of the webcam to advance photos, videos and other documents. And, with Lenovo Transition users can automatically open applications like PowerPoint in full-screen when using Yoga in its other three modes: tent, stand or tablet.
Lenovo ThinkPad Helix
The ThinkPad Helix defines the next generation of mobile computing through its groundbreaking “rip and flip” design. This special design gives users absolute mobile freedom and versatility with four unique ways to use it. ThinkPad Helix first functions as a high-performance ultrabook. For added mobility, the 11.6-inch tablet can separate from its base to become the thinnest full-function Intel third- generation Core tablet with vPro. Besides its game-changing design, the ThinkPad Helix comes with exceptional performance and productivity features and runs up to 10 hours for a full day of work and play.
