Samsung NP700G7C-S01US with Ivy Bridge Available for Pre-Order
The Samsung NP700G7C-S01US, a Series 7 17.3-inch laptop, has appeared again online and is available for pre-order. This machine is the first known laptop model with Ivy Bridge. It first appeared some time back in mid-January at the Best Buy store with expected shipping in “1 to 2 weeks.” However, since availability info is now removed, this was apparently a mistake .
This time, Samsung has published the official product page and specs for the NP700G7C “Gaming PC”, packing the 3rd Gen Intel Core i7-3610QM quad-core processor at 2.3GHz. The laptop can be pre-ordered via ABT for $1,900, but there’s no info on exact availability date.
Besides the Ivy Bridge CPU, the offered configuration packs full HD resolution, 16GB of RAM, 2TB of storage using two 1TB HDDs, a Blu-ray optical drive, and Intel Wireless Display technology. On the ABT’s site there’s no word on the GPU, but Samsung’s official specs sheet includes the Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M 2GB GDDR5 dedicated graphics.
Another similarly Samsung Series 7 laptop was spotted at the CES Show in January. It has the same specs, but it’s rather a standard than gaming laptop.
