5 Samsung Devices To Be Windows 8-Ready For Fall


Series 7 All-In-One

Series 7 AIOs will be available in 23.6- and 27-inch versions, and they will be built around Intel Core i5 and Core i7 Ivy bridge processors, respectively. Listing for $1,099, the 23-inch unit will come with 6 GB of 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (upgradable to 8 GB) and a 1-TB hard drive and is otherwise identical to the Series 5. At the high-end is the $1,699 27-inch Series 7, which includes its maximum of 8 GB of 1,600MHz DDR3 memory and an AMD Radeon HD 7850M GPU.

All of Samsung's new machines include software that's designed to simplify the user experience. The Easy Settings screen unifies eight major system functions in a single UI, easing the job of configuration and troubleshooting for IT departments and consumers alike. We especially liked S Launcher, which essentially giveth the Start Button that Microsoft taketh away in Windows 8.
