Another Samsung notebook is on its way to e-tailer and retailer shelves, with the new notebook being the mid-range Series 7 Chronos. The NP700Z7CH sports Intel's Core i7-3615QM, which is a quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU.

Filling out the rest of the notebook, we find 8GB of DDR3 memory, 1TB HDD with an 8GB ExpressCache drive, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, a 17.3-inch screen with a 1920x1080 resolution, a slow-loading DVDRW and some JBL-branded speakers.

 

Finishing off the NP700Z7CH, we'll find 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, a miniDisplayPort, a D-sub connector, two audio jacks, a memory card reader and an HD webcam. Quite the array, isn't it? It weighs in at 2.84kg, and is a little under 25mm thick, which is pretty thin if you ask me.

The surprising thing is that its just US$1,499. Considering the specs, that's quite an amazing price for a well-specced notebook. It makes me want to upgrade my 2011 Apple MacBook Pro, that's for sure.
