Windows 8 all-in-one PCs from Samsung detailed

Samsung showed off a Windows 8-based all-in-one PC, with a touch screen, back in June at Computex called the Series 7. However, there was no word on the hardware specs or the prices of these PCs. Today that changed as Samsung revealed it would release two models of the Series 7 product, along with a cheaper Series 5 all-in-one PC.

Engadget reports that the Series 5, shown above, will cost $749. It will have a 21.5 inch screen, along with an Intel Core i3 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB of hard drive storage. The Series 7 models will have 23 inch and 27 inch touch screens with a 1080p resolution. The smaller Series 7 will have an Intel Core i5 CPU,  6 GB of RAM, 1 TB of hard drive storage and an Intel Graphics 4000 GPU. Its price will be $1,099.

The larger Series 7 model will have a faster Core i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB of hard drive storage and an AMD Radeon HD 7850M GPU. It will have a price of $1,699.

All three of these new Samsung all-in-one PCs will have plenty of ports, including two USB 3.0 ports, three USB 2.0 ports, a HDMI port and some kind of media readers. The PCs will launch on October 26th, the same day Windows 8 becomes available for regular consumers.

Imagine the pain in your arm trying to hold your arms up to the screen for hours on end, to play a video game. And that's why touch screens fail, except on tablets and maybe notebooks and phones.

But whatever, you people can do whatever you want.


I dont get the pricing on these things. Shouldnt they be lower now? I know it's the conveinience of it all for someone to buy and setup so easily but ... too expensive for me IMO

apple lawyer: it look like an iMac! let cry at the judge so they pay us another billion!

apple lawyer2: good catch buddy!

Why? So they can sue them over price matching?

Cute, but there's no way anyone could mistake this ugly box with an iMac.

27" with 1080p is a fail

No joke! Did they really put a crappy 1080p resolution on a friggen huge 27" computer monitor?

Why so?

Because the established resolution for a 27" monitor is 2560-by-1440. 1080p is 1920-by-1080. Samsung even makes 27" monitors at the 2560-by-1440 resolution that cost about $700 - $1000. When you consider the fact that the larger one of these all-in-one computers is $1000 more than the smaller one, the least you would expect is about a $700 monitor upgrade. Sadly you only get a $300 monitor upgrade for $1000. Its a rip off.
