Samsung showcases two new Series 7 laptops for CES 2013

CES comes a little early as Samsung announces its new laptop entries for the Series 7 line.

It's that time of year again. The holidays are over, people have finished their shopping splurges, and it's time to get back into the normal swing of things. Unless, of course, you're a tech enthusiast getting excited for CES next week. At CES 2013, we get our first look at what may end up on next year's Christmas list, starting with a couple announcements from Samsung.

The Series 7 line is known for powerful units, and luckily 2013 looks to continue that trend with the Series 7 Chronos and the Series 7 Ultra.

Series 7 Chronos

The Chronos is targeted at the PC elite with the latest Intel Core i7 processor and a claimed 11-hour battery life. This laptop is intended for serious content creation and can take advantage of Samsung's new software solution, RAMaccelerator (powered by Condusiv Technologies), which will (according to Samsung) provide a 150 percent increase in speed for browsing and running apps by taking advantage of the existing memory.

Series 7 Ultra

The Series 7 Ultra is designed to be the ultimate Ultrabook for multimedia and mobility. The Ultra's highlight feature is the inclusion of 4G LTE connectivity for Internet access anywhere at any time. The Ultra also boasts a reported 8 hour battery life and 178-degree viewing angle.

Both units come with Windows 8 and have an optional 10-point multi-touch screen. Keep on the lookout for any additional information on these during our CES coverage as well as reviews when the units become available.

I'd also love to know how the heck the RAMaccerlator software works!
