Samsung Series 7 Chronos
Samsung's new laptop, while not as extravagant as Toshiba's Qosmio, fills a similar slot in the Korean behemoth's lineup. The 15.6-inch Chronos has an attractive metal chassis that feels like a cross between Apple and HP's high-end machines. The Chronos is another machine for those that need some horsepower. An i7 processor makes the cut, as does an AMD Radeon HD 8870M. The battery life is rated at an impressive 11 hours. Pricing and availability aren't yet available.
