Series 5 will cost $749 while Series 7 AIOs will run from $1,099 to $1,699
Samsung announced two new series of All-In-One (AIO) PCs today at IFA 2012, where both will run the
Windows 8 operating system
The two new additions are the Series 5 and
Series 7 AIO PCs
. They both come loaded with Windows 8 and a bunch of new touchscreen features as well as a slick design.
The Series 5 AIO PCs are on the low end between the two. They're smaller with a 21.5-inch touchscreen and the ability to slide the keyboard and mouse underneath the display for extra space. They have a third-generation Intel Core i3 processor, 500 GB of hard drive, 4 GB of memory and an optical drive all for $749.
The Series 7 is on the higher end with two models to choose from: a 27-inch display and a 23.6-inch display. Both have a 1920x1080 pixel multi-touchscreens as well a 1 TB of hard drive, an optical drive and a wireless keyboard, mouse and remote control. However, the 27-inch has a third-generation Intel Core i7 processor with 8 GB of memory and the 23.6-inch has an Intel Core 15 processor with 6 GB of memory.
The 27-inch Series 7 AIO will cost $1,699 while the 23.6-inch will cost $1,099.
also packed its latest AIOs with smartphone/tablet-like touchscreen features, such as the ability to zoom in on a Web page by using the pinch gesture and the swipe gesture to scroll through pages. It also has new gestures that don't even require the user touch screen, such as controlling the volume by simply moving your palm clockwise and counterclockwise or turning pages of a book by swiping back and forth. Just make sure you're within three feet of the computer.
"Our new Series 7 and Series 5 All-In-One PCs are designed to meet a range of consumer needs across the home, all within highly stylized form factors that users will be proud to put on display," said Todd Bouman, vice president of product marketing at Samsung's Enterprise Business Division. "The expansion of our AIO line speaks to the success we've had in the PC market over the past year. Both of these new models take Samsung's convergence technologies to the next level, completing the home computing experience by connecting the PC to other devices in the home environment."
The two new series of AIO PCs will be
released on October 26
, when Windows 8 makes its way to the masses.
