Samsung aims for gamers with Series 7 700G7A
Samsung is making a surprise grab for gamers’ attention with the specs of its latest laptop. The Samsung Series 7 700G7A is packed with features aimed at tempting gamers to kill foes from their laps rather than their rooms.
The 700G7A (seriously, Samsung, try to think of a snappier name. We think the Samsung Murderizer would be good. Perhaps the Samsung Explosificator 9000.) comes with a quad-core 2Ghz i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM and a Blu-ray drive. It’ll need to be good to temp people from their Alienware laptops. It’s certainly a lot more refined when it comes to styling.
Graphical chores are made short shrift of by a Radeon HD 6970m with a whopping 2GB of dedicated graphics memory. It can output to HDMI, of course, should the 1,920×1,080 screen ever feel a bit pokey. As a final nod and a wink to gamers, the W-A-S-D keys (the first-person shooter pro’s movement keys of choice) have their own separate red backlight that picks them out above the blue of the other keys. Nice.
